MI 20000 MAH Power Bank Review

1

Power banks are essential accessories now, especially if you’re the type of person that’s on the phone a lot. Xiaomi’s one of the more well-known brands that produces power banks, and up until a few weeks ago their biggest capacity power bank was their 16000mAh offering. No more. Today we’ll be reviewing the company’s biggest power bank yet – a 20000mAh monster that’s capable of keeping your phone and several other gadgets topped up with juice.

After 5200mAh, 10400mAh and 16000mAh power banks, Xiaomi has introduced new 20000mAh Mi power bank in China. It is designed by Texas Instruments and comes with nine layers of circuit protection, similar to other Mi power banks. This has ABS plastic body, compared to aluminium body on other Mi power banks. This offers a better grip and prevents scratches, says Xiaomi. Even though it has more batteries, it weighs just 338 grams, lighter than the 350 gram 16000mAh Mi power bank, mainly due to the change in material.

It has a power button on the side, LED for battery level indication on the bottom, micro USB slot for charging the power bank and two standard USB slots for output that lets you charge two devices simultaneously. It offers 5.1V / 3.6A output, similar to the 16000mAh power bank. The batteries on the inside are manufactured by LG or Panasonic and it promises up to 93% conversion rate and a minimum 12700mAh actual output. It also has fast charging (5V/2A 9V/2A 12V/1.5A) that takes only 3 hours to charge the power bank up to 11000mAh.

Xiaomi’s 20000mAh Mi Power Bank is the perfect power bank for constant travellers and for people going on long trips. The longer charge time is a bummer, but it’s the price that you pay for longevity. Speaking of price, this particular power bank is sadly not offered here in the PH by Xiaomi, but can be sourced through other means if you look hard enough.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
