Xiaomi to launch $5 5200mAh portable power bank


Xiaomi are rumoured to be expanding their range of portable power banks to include a 5200mAh model costing just $5!

Last month Xiaomi launched a 10,400mAh battery pack at an amazing 69 Yuan ($11), the news was pretty spectacular and managed to make headlines around the globe. Today, it has been revealed that an even cheaper version with 5200mAh battery will be launched.

The new model will offer exactly half the charging capabilities of the original, which is still more than enough power to juice up your phone and tablet, and will go on sale for less than half the price!

    Unfortunetely, the price is 3-4 times higer for international buyers. The price of the 10400 mAh power bank happens to be 3-4 times higher for international buyers (due to airline restrictions regarding batteries)

      The resellers can ship it with Bpost or Swiss Post.
      Then you don’t need to care about restrictions.

        The total price (including shipping costs) is still 3-4 times higher, so it is not that interesting anymore.

      And so the xiaomi propaganda machine continues. Sometimes I wonder if gizchina get commission for hyping up xiaomi products. The uninformed won’t have realised this and the sheep will buy. To make them selves appear big they will only release 10000 of these in one batch and sell out in under a minute then tell everybody how popular they are and so the cycle continues.
