Xiaomi further populates its power bank portfolio with Mi Power 2C, the successor to the Mi Power 2 power bank, with improved charging times and even more aggressive pricing.
The new Xiaomi Mi Power 2C comes with a PCB+ABS body with a rough surface for a better grip when held and uses high quality Li-Polymer batteries with a conversion rate of 93%. The Mi Power 2C can charge the Mi 5X 4.3 times, the Mi Mix 2 3.8 times and the iPad Mini 2.5 times. Each output port supports Quick Charge 3.0 and can provide up to 5.1V/3.6A.
It can also be used to charge devices that require low current like the Mi Band (0.025A) and the Mi Bluetooth Headset (0.06A). If you need to charge such a device, you just have to double press the power button to switch to low power mode. Thankfully it’s a 2-way fast charging device, so this means that it can also BE charged using a Quick Charge 3 charger in just 8 hours to full capacity!
As always, Xiaomi includes a bunch of protective measures in the power bank, such as temperature protection, input/output high voltage protection, overcharge and discharge protection, and short circuit protection. The Mi Power 2C is also said to have a 90% retention rate even after 300 charge cycles and should last up to 3 years.
In case you’re looking for such a power bank then you should know that it comes in white color with a price tag of ¥129 (~$20) and you can find it on the official Mi online store and at offline Mi Home stores.
