Just months after Xiaomi unveiled its slim 10,000 mAh powerbank, it is prepping up a larger 20,000mAh which was first spotted on a retailer website. The product is expected to start selling from November 11th. The powerbank will be made up of 6 x 3350mAh high capacity batteries from Panasonic/LG and will support Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0, allowing you to charge the batteries at a maximum wattage of 18W.
The increase in the capacity translates into a direct increase in the weight, but we feel that Xiaomi might still be able to keep the powerbank relatively compact as they did with the current crop of slim powerbanks with 9.9mm thickness. The larger capacity of powerbank doesn’t seem to take a toll on the charging time, as the new powerbank is expected to get charged from NIL to 100 percent in just 5 hours.
Xiaomi has always been kind when it comes to pricing, in fact all of their products come with a sticker price so low that they never seize to amuse. In all likelihood, the 20,000 mAh powerbank will might be priced around 129 Yuan translating to nearly $21, which undoubtedly is a great value for money proposition, specially considering the QC 2.0 support.
Xiaomi is one of the few smartphone companies that doesn’t just restrict itself to its core business. It has in some sense ridiculously deviated its product line and come up with Air Purifiers and Segway-like scooters, not to mention the recently announced dirt cheap AA batteries that last for 7 years.
