In contrast to other smartphone brands, Xiaomi is also well-known for its selection of power banks. The company offers a large number of models, particularly in China, where it is the home market.
The company recently unveiled a new power bank that has a slim form factor, prioritizes design over functionality, and is reasonably priced, just like any other Xiaomi product.
The new power bank from Xiaomi is so light and thin that it can not fully charge most phones.
The latest battery pack from the company is called the Xiaomi Ultra-Thin Power Bank 5,000mAh. It costs ¥129 (~$20) and is available for purchase.
Measuring just 10mm and weighing only 93g, it is thin enough to fit in shirt pockets like a credit card. Its body is coated with a material called NCVM (Non-Conductive Vacuum Metallization), which makes it appear and even shine like metal. As the name implies, the accessory has a battery capacity of 5,000mAh, meaning it cannot fully charge most modern smartphones.
A USB Type-C to Type-C cable is included with the power bank, which has a single USB Type-C port and can support up to 20W of output and 18W of input.
In addition, the accessory comes with nine layers of protection: temperature, reset, input overvoltage, input overcurrent, output overcurrent, output overvoltage, battery overcharge and overdischarge, and overcurrent short circuit.
