Xiaomi Mi Power Bank 2i was released back in November 2017 on Mi.com and Mi Home stores. There are two variants of Power Bank 2i: a 10,000 mAh one and a bigger one with a capacity of 20,000 mAh.
Xiaomi has just decided to raise the price of both the battery packs in India. On Mi.com and Amazon India, the price has been increased to Rs. 899 for the 10,000 mAh version and Rs. 1,599 for the 20,000 mAh variant. It is Rs. 100 more than the official launch price. Here is how Xiaomi India spokesperson justified the new price hike:
Due to the change in tax structure we’ve had to marginally revise prices for our Mi Power Bank 2i series. This was done to ensure that Mi Power Bank 2i is still the high-quality product that buyers have come to expect from Xiaomi.
According to Xiaomi India chief Manu Kumar Jain, the sales of Xiaomi Mi Power Banks have been great last year. The company has been able to sell four times more units than its main competitor Lenovo. The 20,000 mAh version of Xiaomi Mi Power Bank 2i features a metal design with a thickness of 14.2 mm and a weight of 245 grams, while its bigger sibling has a polycarbonate body and a weight of 358 grams.
