Xiaomi sub-brand Redmi has entered the mobile-charging category. It finally has Redmi-branded power banks, which are set to go on sale first in China July 23.
There are two of them. One has a 10,000mAh capacity, and the other gets 20,000mAh — high-capacity portable chargers that are priced at only ¥59 (around P437 or $9) and ¥99 (P734 or $14), respectively. Pretty affordable, as expected. After all, Redmi is meant to be the more cost-effective sub-brand of Xiaomi.
Both come with two output ports — all USB-A; two input ports — USB-C and microUSB; nine protection features; and lithium-ion polymer batteries. They also support low-current charging for devices like fitness trackers and Bluetooth headsets. You just need to turn on the 2-hour low-current charging mode by double-clicking the power button.
The 10,000mAh Redmi power bank with model number PB100LZM has 37Wh battery capacity. It can supposedly charge a Redmi Note 7 and a Redmi K20 (otherwise known as the Xiaomi Mi 9T in the Philippines) 1.75 times, a Xiaomi Mi 9 2.4 times, and an Apple iPhone XS 2.3 times.
The single-port input has 5V 2.1A maximum power rating, and the single-port output, 5.1V 2.4A. When charging two devices at the same time, the dual port can output up to 5.1V 2.6A.
The 20,000mAh Redmi power bank with model number PB200LZM, on the other hand, can purportedly charge a Redmi Note 7 and a Redmi K20 3.5 times, a Xiaomi Mi 9 5.3 times, and an iPhone XS 4.8 times.
It supports 5V 2A, 9V 2.1A, and 12V 1.5A input charging and 5.1V 2.4A, 9V 2A, and 12V 1.5A output charging. So yes, this power bank, unlike the first one, has support for 18W fast charging.
Hopefully, these two will become available in the Philippines as well.
