Xiaomi launches its first Wireless Power Bank in India for ₹2,499
Xiaomi commands a respectable chunk of the Indian smartphone market, but the company is more than just smartphones. The Chinese company also makes some very enticing smartphone accessories and smart home ecosystem products, all of which have contributed towards making Xiaomi a much more recognizable brand in India. Xiaomi also sells a few different power banks in the country, usually across 10,000 mAh and 20,000 mAh battery capacities. Today, Xiaomi has launched its first wireless power bank in India, with a slew of features that justify its pricing.
The new Mi Wireless Power Bank 10,000 mAh is a Qi-certified power bank that supports up to 10W fast wireless charging, as well as 18W wired charging both in and out of the power bank. The power bank features a large non-skid surface for placing devices on it to charge wirelessly. It also features a USB Type-C input port and a USB Type-A output port. Input is accepted at 5V-3A, 9V-2A, and 12V-1.5A, while wired output ranges between 5V-2.4A, 9V-2A, and 12V-1.5A. The power bank claims to use high-quality lithium-polymer batteries as well as several protection features to safeguard the product against voltage, temperature, current and electrostatic anomalies.
Curiously, while the power bank has wireless charging as its highlight feature, none of Xiaomi’s or Redmi’s smartphones that are currently sold in India feature wireless charging. Though we do expect the Mi 10 and the Mi 10 Pro to land in India in the near future, and these do feature wireless charging. Xiaomi has a much more expansive power bank and charger lineup in China, but for now, we get only this combination product. Xiaomi is also testing out 40W fast wireless charging, but that tech has yet to make its way to a commercial product, even in China, so there’s still some time to wait on for that.
The Xiaomi Mi 10,000 mAh Wireless Power Bank is priced at ₹2,499 (~$34) in India and will be available in Black color only for now. You can buy the power bank from Mi.com, Mi Homes and Mi Studios. We also expect to see the product being made available across popular online stores as well in the future.
If you are looking for product alternatives, Samsung has a very similar product that you can purchase for ₹3,399 (~$46).
