It is sleek for a 16000mAh capacity device, however, it is on a heavier side weighing at 0.33gms. Unlike the 10,400mAh Xiaomi Powerbank that we reviewed last month, this one packs 2 USB port allowing users to charge 2 devices at one go. It has a microUSB port for charging and comes with LED power indicator to show the battery level.

Performance & Hardware Specs

Each USB port comes with 5.1V/2.1A output, meaning you can charge a smartphone at a faster rate than the traditional 5V/1A powerbanks. When you use a 5V/2A charger, it will take roughly around 9 hours to charge the powerbank from 0 to 100%. But once fully charged, the powerbank can charge 3000mAh powered phones for around 3.5 times,  iPhone 6 for 5 times, and iPad mini for 2.5 times.

It is compatible with almost every device that uses USB charging cable. Moreover, the charging port automatically adjusts its output based on the connected devices.

If you’re getting trouble charging a smartphone with constant powercuts or your smartphone simply won’t last a full working day, the Xiaomi 16000mAh Powerbank would be an ideal gadget to carry around. Currently, the device is not available to purchase in Nepal, however, you can order the device from for US$27.89. They accept payment methods such as PayPal, Wire Transfer, as well as the Western Union.
