It fits perfectly into your pocket and can also be put into your backpack, purse or messenger bag. This device is also very light, weighing just 8.5 ounces, which is very convenient when you’re on the move.
You won’t have any issues taking this power bank aboard with you on a flight. It only has 37Wh, which falls far below the 100Wh limit stipulated by the TSA. This makes it perfectly accessible and ideal for you if you spend the majority of your time traveling to your destination by plane.
The Xiaomi Mi Pro 10000mAh Power Bank is a bit bigger and heavier than Anker’s PowerCore 10000mAh Portable Charger (3.62” x 2.36” x 0.87”, 6.3 ounces). If you’re searching for something compact and lightweight, either of these devices could suit you perfectly.
Look and feel
The slim and sleek Xiaomi Mi Power Bank features a minimal design. Its outer casing is made entirely of anodized aluminum with a matte finish, giving it an extremely smooth surface. It also has shiny CNC rounded edges on both sides, providing a high quality and durable feel. On the front face of this unit, you’ll find the Mi logo centered perfectly on the lower portion of the case. On the back, you’ll see a small anti-counterfeit label with the brand’s website address
On the top and bottom of the power bank, you will notice a gray plastic finish. The top panel has the input and output information. From left to right, on the bottom, you’ll find the oval-shaped power check button, four LED indicator lights, a USB-C input port, and a USB-A output port.
The power check button is also quite handy. By double-pressing the button while the unit is not charging, it will go into small current discharge mode. This is a useful feature if you need to power-up smaller devices, such as Bluetooth headphones and smart bands. Each of the LED lights will illuminate in sequence, which will indicate the Mi Power Bank Pro is in the small current discharge mode. To turn this feature off, all you need to do is press the power check button once.
If there is a charging error while powering-up the device, all four LED lights will blink. Otherwise, it’ll display the replenishing status. Four solid LED lights will indicate that it’s fully charged. Three indicates 75-96%, two indicates 50-75%, one indicates 25-50%, and the first LED light will blink to indicate it’s 0-25% charged. If it has no power, then all four LED lights will simply go out.
This power bank also comes packaged with a 1.3 feet white USB-A to micro-USB cable with a micro-USB to Type-C adapter attached to the end of the cord. The adapter can be used to charge a variety of mobile devices, tablets, notebooks, and much more. However, it doesn’t come with a Lightning cable for the iPhone.
Durability & build quality
The Xiaomi Mi 10000mAh Power Bank is pretty sturdy and very well-built. The aluminum case is resistant to corrosion and daily wear and tear. It can survive drops and is less prone to damage. Since all the ports, LED lights, and button are in one place, those parts would be the safest if it were to drop on the ground.
It also has built-in safeguards to help protect the Mi Power Bank Pro and your connected devices. It helps to provide protection against Input/Output overvoltage, overheating, short-circuit, incorrect insertion, overcharge and overdischarge, and output overcurrent. This device also has PTC protective circuits for the battery, which controls current and maintains temperature levels. With TI chips built-in as well, you’ll have a safe, efficient, and compatible charging experience.
The Mi Power Bank Pro contains a one year manufacturer’s warranty when you purchase the product. If it has a hardware defect, Xiaomi will repair the unit using new or refurbished parts or they will replace it with a new or refurbished device.
