Xiaomi 16000 Mi power bank review – high capacity yet affordable

The Xiaomi 16000 mAh power bank was recently made available in India for Rs. 1,399. This Power Bank houses a massive 16000 mAh battery that can easily charge your smartphone multiple times (can charge smartphone with a 2000 mAh battery for more than 5 times).

Design and Performance
The built quality is very good. If you have used a Xiaomi Mi power bank before, well it has the same finishing with aluminum casing. This power bank is sleek considering the massive battery it houses but it is heavy at about 343 grams.

There are dual USB slots and each slot supports 5.1V/2.1A output. You can charge 2 devices simultaneously – max output is 5.1V/3.6A. There is a micro USB slot to charge this power bank. Travel charger (adapter) is not included, but better use a 5V ~ 2A adapter to charge this bank as recommended within 10 hours. If you use 5V ~ 1A adapter it will take about 14 to 15 hours to fully charge this power bank.

I used this power bank to charge a smartphone (with 3450 mAh battery) once – from 0% battery level to 100%, the LED indicator dropped by 1, so I can easily charge this smartphone for up to 4 times.

This Mi Power Bank is using a massive Li-ion battery capacity of 16000 mAh and it will take time to fully charge it. I used the 5V ~ 2A adapter and it took 9 hours 28 minutes to fully charge the bank from almost 0% battery to full.

Verdict
The Mi 16000 Power Bank is a very good backup option for those on the move. Yes it is heavy but can keep you going for days without connecting it to any (wall) power source. The best part about this power bank is the price – Rs. 1,399.

Mi power banks are available on Mi.com.
