Xiaomi continues enriching the assortment of its powerbanks line. Just a couple of weeks back, the Chinese manufacturer announced the Xiaomi Mi PowerBank 2 10.000mAh with dual-USB at 79 yuan ($12). Today, another powerbank came to our way from this company named the Xiaomi Mi PowerBank 2 5.000mAh. As the name suggests, it’s the smaller variant of the aforementioned phone. Therefore, it should be priced less. This new powerbank is sold at 49 yuan ($8) only.
The Xiaomi Mi PowerBank 2 5.000mAh continues using the metal body at a thickness of 10.7mm. The body is made of using a classic anodized aluminum processing, which provides a beautiful and uniform appearance as well as resistance to dirt and scratches. Moreover, the edge treatment of this product is also changed to C-chamfered design. So the edges are smoother and more comfortable to hold in hands. There is a single key on the top to start charging. It comes with more integrated visual effects.
This powerbank also comes with a protection against high temperature, short-circuiting, and high voltage input and output. Thus it continues the best traditions of 9-circuit protections found on previous models. Moreover, thanks to the low charge current function, the Xiaomi Mi PowerBank 2 5.000mAh can be used for charging small devices such as Bluetooth headsets and smartbands. As you know, they support low charge current and mostly are not identified by powerbanks. You only have to double click on the power button to enable low charging mode.
At last, this product sports a high-quality ATL lithium-polymer battery, and there are a single full-sized USB output port as well as a micro USB input port for charging your smartphones. According to the manufacturer, the Xiaomi Mi PowerBank 2 5.000mAh is fully charged in 3.5 hours using a 5V/2A charger. It is also stated this device should charge the Xiaomi Mi 4 once, the iPhone 6 for 1.8x, and the iPhone 5s for 2.2x.
