ZMI’s powerbank also boasts built-in LTE and WIFI hotspot


zmi power bank

We have seem a number of powerbanks offered since Xiaomi got in on things, but the latest from China is the ZMi with big power, USB and even LTE modem.

The ZMi branded accessory was recently spotted on TENAA receiving network approval and boasting a built-in portable model allowing support for LTE, 3G and GSM networks. The included WIFI means that the powerbank can also act as a personal WIFI hotspot while traveling and will also power up your handheld devices.

On the battery side of things there is a 7800mAh battery, a single USB and plus LED notification lights for signal strength, WIFI and remaining power. No official launch date or price has been announced but insiders are claiming the powerbank will cost 500 Yuan.

    In theory its a good idea but having all that added in defeats the purpose of a powerbank. LTE and Wifi are both very power hungry and I wonder how strong/good the LTE antennae inside this thing is. A weak antennae will use even more power.

      What you said is true but it can always double as a mobile router which I think is the reason behind the built-in Wi-Fi and LTE.

        Yea but if that was the case I would rather just buy a mobile router, only because I worry about the quality of the LTE antennae inside of it. To me it has bargain bin components written all over it.
