Xiaomi has released 2 other Power Banks with larger capacity, The smaller but thicker 10400mAh Mi Power Bank and the taller and thicker 16000mAh Mi Power Bank.
The Xiaomi Mi 5000mAh separates itself by being the slimmest and cheapest and at the same time providing enough juice to keep your device going throughout the day.
Buttons and Ports:
In front of the Xiaomi Mi 5000mAh Power Bank are the ports, LED indicator and the power button. We have the micro USB input for charging the power bank and a 2.1A rated USB output port for charging your device.
The power button has two functions, to turn on the power bank as well as to reset it in case of a premature power off.
Hardware and Features:
Xiaomi claims that the Xiaomi Mi 5000mAh Power Bank has an ATL/Lishen lithium-ion polymer battery cells and has 9 layers of circuit protection:
Most of the power banks out there has 2 power outputs, unfortunately for Xiaomi Mi 5000mAh Power Bank it only has 1 output as a compromise for it’s slim design. But don’t fret as this single power output is rated at 2.1A which will charge your device fast enough.
I was able to fully charge the Xiaomi Mi 5000mAh Power Bank for about 3.5-4 hours. Your results may vary depending on the charger and the quality of the USB cable you are using.
Don’t be surprise if you don’t actually get the 5000mAh capacity as there’s a little bit of loss due to power conversion. Xiaomi claims an optimized charging/discharging efficiency conversion rate of 93% which is pretty decent. You’ll get around 3441mAh (5000mAh x 3.7V/5V x 93%)
How long will a 5000mah battery last?
When I tested the Xiaomi Mi 5000mAh Power Bank using my Alcatel Flash 2 I got 1870mAh of input power which is the maximum power my phone can receive. And if I do the math 3441mAh/1870mAh I will be able to charge my phone at least 1.8 times which can help me survive the day with enough juice.
I was able to fully charge my Alcatel Flash 2 in about 5 hours quite the same with my other power bank. your result may vary depending on your device.
WILL I RECOMMEND THIS?: Yes!
To be honest, I just got this power bank that my sister asked me to check out and out of the box I was like “wow, this one’s super slim and looks very premium” my wife also loves it and planning on getting one herself. If only I don’t already have a power bank I’m going to buy this for sure.
I can’t say enough about how sleek this power bank is and it’s cold to the touch because of it’s textured aluminum body.
