You can’t have a smartphone without also owning a power bank these days. Most especially if you have tons of gadgets in your arsenal.
If you own multiple phones, cameras, smartwatches, tablets, pocket WiFi, and more, but still don’t have a battery pack, you might want to check out the new Xiaomi Mi Power Bank 3 30,000mAh.
At this capacity, you can charge Android phones like the Mi 10 and the Redmi Note 9 series — which usually have about 4,000mAh of battery — by at least five times. Meanwhile, devices like the iPhone SE 2020 that has a much smaller battery can get about 10 charges out of this.
As if that’s not enough, the Mi Power Bank 3 has 18W fast charging output from its two USB Type-A and one USB Type-C port.
If you’re plugging a smaller device without fast charging support, you can double-tap the power button to enter the low-current mode.
But, if you want something more powerful, you can get the Mi 45W power bank that should be enough to charge most laptops.
However, with its capacity, charging this power bank could take a long time. Thankfully, the Type-C port can also accommodate 24W of input, which can shorten the charging time to 7.5 hours. That’s if you own a fast charger.
Oh, and if you haven’t noticed, this thing is really large. It has a thickness of 38.9mm. That’s about five phones stacked together.
The Xiaomi Mi Power Bank 3 30,000mAh has a price of CNY169 in China, available through Xiaomi’s official website and JD.com. That’s only around ~Php1,200 when directly converted to Philippine pesos, without the importation taxes and cost.
