Xiaomi’s online store briefly listed a huge 20,000mAh powerbank this morning that is likely to go on sale for the 11/11 singles day.
Xiaomi started a trend when they released their low-cost 10,000mAh portable power bank last year, now the market is flooded with really affordable power banks and an alarming number of fake Xiaomi battery packs.
With phone batteries getting larger all year, 10,000mAh might not cut it any more, and in a bid to go bigger and better Xiaomi could be poised to release a 20,000mAh battery pack.
Gizchina News of the week
Rumours started when a listing for a 20,000mAh Xiaomi battery was briefly found on the Xiaomi online store. The image was incorrect but the name of the product clearly labeled it as a large capacity unit.
Industry sources picked up on the leak and have been able to confirm that the battery pack will be made of 6 x Panasonic high-capacity batteries rated at 3350mAh each. With so much power available we could see additional USB ports in the battery and an all new design.
Pricing should be slightly more than the 109 Yuan 16,000mAh Xiaomi power bank with a launch date of 11th November, aka Singles Day, mentioned.
