Hooray! New gadget in the house! What is new this time? Lately, I have been relying a lot on my PowerBank or Battery Pack or Juicer as my ageing Apple iPhone 6S Plus is draining battery way faster than usual. However, I am holding on to this until the new iPhone 8 is released as there is totally no point in jumping on the iPhone 7 bandwagon at this point of time when we know the release date for the new iPhone 8 is imminent!
As I was doing some window-shopping at Suntec City last week, I walked past the “Mi” Store which is the store for XiaoMi line of products. Feeling curious what’s in store for me as it has been a real long time ago that I have used XiaoMi product. Still remember those days when XiaoMi do not have an official store front in Singapore, I went ahead to buy my first PowerBank (16000 mAh in capacity) and have to collect it from an industry area in Singapore. Time flies and now it is so easy to get this value-for-money line of products almost anywhere in Singapore. So, why the flagship store then? I don’t have the answer either but I am a fan of buying from the original store instead of going through re-sellers.
My old (16000 mAh) battery juicer suffered a damage when I was in Auckland last year where it slipped out of my jacket pocket and create a dent on the cover itself but since then I make do with it all the while. However, when I saw the newer series of the PowerBank, I am so in-love with the design as it looks so sleek! Without further ado, please see below:
Woot, the package is so much better than before. In the past, we do not even have any wording printed on the exterior of the box!
Look at the statistics being published and printed on the exterior of the box, this juicer (a.k.a. PowerBank) can fully charged 7.5x an Apple iPhone 7. *Roar*
More specifications of the specs as such “Fast-Charging” which is something that I can make do without in terms of bi-directional functionality. I need my PowerBank to quickly charged up my device as soon as possible else I will probably not be able to stay connected in this Internet-Enabled World! I definitely can make do without the fast charging of the PowerBank as I always leave it by the power socket for hours adoring the blinking lights on the PowerBank.
Man, artistic shot of my PowerBank. Although the material of the casing is Plastic compared to the older version which I suppose it should be made up of Aluminium. (*Wild Guessing*)
This PowerBank equips with 2 x USB port so that one can concurrent charged up two devices. It works flawlessly for the older version and I have yet to have this tested out on the newer version. The centre socket is the one used for charging the PowerBank which is uses the regular kind of cable used widely for Android devices before phasing out into using Type-C.
I really like the Pearlie White colour on this PowerBank, I wonder if XiaoMi is going to start producing more of different colours! If yes, I will be collecting them!
