Xiaomi power bank 16000mAh review

Looking for Xiaomi power bank 16000mAh? Need to know its performance of Xiaomi power bank 16000mAh? In this article I have given performance, price, charging time and charge count of Xiaomi 16000mAh power bank.

Xiaomi Mi 16000mAh power bank was launched in December 2014. However, it's available in India from May 2015. Mi power bank is available for sale only in Xiaomi India website. I was hoping the product would be listed in Flipkart but it's not. The price of this power bank is Rs.1,300. I purchased the power bank from below website.

Xiaomi power bank sale website - http://mobile.mi.com/in/pb16000/

The sale happened once in this month (June 2015). This is not a flash sale and there was also no limitation in stock. I just visited the website at right time and grabbed one. I got the sale information from tech websites. There is no information about next batch of sale.


In Xiaomi power bank, there are two output ports. Each output port supports up to 2.1A. The maximum output is 3.6A when two ports are used simultaneously. The power bank is protected with an aluminum casing.

The dimension is 145 x 60.4 x 22. It weighs 350g, which is typical weight for 16000mAh power banks. Build quality is durable.

After I bought this power bank, I checked its performance. I used Xiaomi Redmi 1S and Micromax Yu Yureka to check the performance. I was eager to see whether the device performs as promised in manual. Here are the results.

Power bank charging time:
It took 9 hours when using 5V/2A adapter and 14.5 hours when using 5V/1A adapter.

Number of charge for a full backup in power bank:
I was expecting my phone should be recharged 8 times (16000/2000) from the specification. But, it charged my phone 5 times with little power remaining.

Phone charging time using power bank:
It took 2.5 hours to charge my Redmi 1S from 0 to 100% and is almost same for Yu Yureka.


I felt little cheated when I was not able to recharge my phone for 8 times. However comparing its performance with price point it is really a game changer. I would recommend it for heavy internet users.
