Xiaomi’s new $22 10,000mAh power bank has a Type-C port


Xiaomi’s first power bank with a USB Type-C port is now official.

It comes with a 10,000mAh cell and is pretty slim, measuring in at just 12.58mm.

After making power banks mainstream with their 5200mAh and 10400mAh offerings, Xiaomi have moved on to making them slimmer and lighter.

A great example of that would be the new 20,000mAh power bank, which is in fact both, slimmer and lighter than the 16,000mAh version the company released prior to that.

Coming back to the 10,000mAh version released today, it is priced at 149 Yuan or $22. According to Xiaomi, the gadget can charge the Mi Note 2.5 times, the iPhone 6 four times, and an iPad Mini 1.5 times.

Availability will be limited to China for the time being. There’s no word on whether the gadget will make it to other markets.

      The USB-C is a AC-IN port, which means from the power outlet to the powerbank.
      To charge other devices you still use the regular USB (the one you can find in any laptop)
