I’m always with my phone, I use it all the time and even if I’m at home, my daughter is the one playing with the phone. That’s why it’s imperative that my phone’s battery won’t die on me, plus I learned that you should not drain your smartphone’s battery, you have to charge it once it’s between 40%-60%.
I already bought a Pyxis 10,400 mAh Power Bank and it’s still working fine after 4 months of use. Still, I want a Mi power bank so bad. That’s why when a friend told me that Lazada will be selling the 16000 mAh power bank last April 24, I told my friend to order one for me.
Lazada sold the Xiaomi 16000 mAh Mi powerbank for Php 1299, it’s smaller sibling, 10,4000 mAh Mi powerbank is sold at Php 645. Xiaomi power banks is known for its affordable price and great quality that’s why it’s always sold out in Lazada. I was lucky I now have my Mi power bank, with 16000 mAh juice to boot.
I like the look of the Mi power bank, it looks sleeker and classier than Pyxis. Mi reminds me of the feel and look of Apple gadgets.

The four lights represents how much charge is left in your power bank. When you press the power or capacity check button, the LEDs will blink, each light represents 25% charge.
The Mi 16000 mAh power bank comes with a dual USB port outputs, which is perfect for charging two gadgets simultaneously. Do take note that while each port can output a 2.1 A current, it will yield a combined rate lower than 4.2 A. Geeky stuff and I don’t mind and won’t measure. As long as I can charge 2 gadgets at a time, I’m fine.
According to Mi’s website, Mi Power Bank automatically adjusts its output level based on the connected device. It is compatible with smartphones and tablets from Mi, Apple, Samsung, HTC, Google and BlackBerry, as well as a variety of digital cameras and handheld gaming devices.
The only disadvantage of this 16,000 mAh power bank is its weight. It can be heavy if you’re used to carrying compact bags. Also, it only comes with one cable, with two USB ports, at least they could have added additional cable, and make it longer too.
