Just yesterday we were talking about the crowdfunding campaign mad by Xiaomi to launch the ZMI Stainless Steel powerbank with a 6.000mAh capacity. Today the company came in with another powerbank announcement. This simply means the manufacturer has a goal of focusing on this niche and not allow other companies to grab a bigger market share. As you know, Huawei and other companies such as Onda have decided to make a tough competition to Xiaomi that has sold the most powerbanks last year. But Xiaomi has at least one advantage in comparison to these brands – the Chinese Apple has invested a lot in many sub-brands and can come in with various products carrying their names. Currently, it acts so. Today the Xiaomi ZMI 10 Powerbank 15.000mAh was announced at a price tag of 269 yuan ($41).
ZMI is one of those companies that always pay attention to the look. The ZMI 10 powerbank 15.000mAh is no exception. It comes with a regular appearance seen in other powerbanks but with an aluminum stamping. The middle layer uses a high-strength PC + ABS flame retardant material to protect the batteries and the circuit board.
However, the selling point of this powerbank is not the design. The ZMI 10 powerbank 15.000mAh has three unique interface outputs. Two of those USB interfaces can provide 5V / 2A, 9V / 2A, and 12V / 1.5A output power, while the USB-C can provide up to 40W output power. Thus it is compatible with the Nintendo Switch, the new MacBook, Xiaomi Notebook Air, and other products like them. The next key feature of this powerbank is the USB HUB function support that allows you to plug not only an external mouse, keyboard or other peripherals but a flash drive.
The total capacity of the ZMI 10 is 15.000mAh, while the actual output is 9.000mAh. Thus it can charge the Xiaomi Mi 6 for three times. It also supports two-way (bi-directional) fast charging with a maximum input power of 45W. It allows the powerbank to fully charge in 2.8 hours. At last, it supports 18W charging. So if using this mode it will charge in 4.8 hours.
