Last year, Xiaomi unveiled the Mi Power Bank 3 with 50W fast charge support. The company has now launched a new version with 18W fast charge support priced at 169 yuan(~$24). The product is presently available to pre-order on Jingdong (JD.com). It will go on sale on June 18.
The power bank is similar in several aspects to the Mi Power bank 3 50W version. The major difference is that it presents with support for 18W fast charging. The power bank also packs a bigger 30000mAh capacity battery whereas last year’s 50W fast charge-supporting Mi Power Bank 3 has a 20,000mAh battery capacity.
The improved battery capacity means this model will have a bulkier build. The battery is said to last up to 10 days and can charge a mobile phone such as the Redmi K30 Pro up to 4.5 times. The iPhone SE 2020can be refilled up to 10.5 times with the power bank.
The power pack is compatible with most digital equipment and can charge three devices at the same time. It features two USB-A ports and a USB-C port. There is also a separate USB-C port with 24W Max input for refuelling the power bank. It comes with support for several charging ratings and can charge models with such ratings seamlessly including Apple and Android phones.
