Xiaomi PowerBank 5000 and 16000 mAh – Best Mobile PowerBanks
In the line of Xiaomi batteries there is already a model with a capacity of 5200 mAh based on 18650 batteries, which were also used in the company's 10400 and 16000 mAh batteries. However, in Xiaomi reasonably decided: if there is a demand for compact batteries, the idea needs to be developed. So there was another battery of similar capacity - 5000 mAh. The battery was presented on November 24, 2014, and before the presentation in Chinese media and blogs, the following picture began to slip: The simplest way to describe a new idea is with this short animation: In the video, the guy pulls out the Xiaomi PowerBank 5200 battery from his jeans pocket and says that it is too thick and does not fit in the pockets, which Lin Bin, one of the co-founders of Xiaomi, answers: "Too thick? So “And strikes the battery with a frying pan, turning it into a new, slim easy to handle Power Bank. In terms of design and materials used, the new Xiaomi PowerBank 5000 does not differ from other models of the company. The case is made of anodized aluminum; the company compares it with the aluminum used by Apple in the MacBooks. The accessory is able to withstand up to 50 kg of weight. The edges of the body are slightly rounded for easy grip. In general, the new battery looks very simple and at the same time beautiful. To hide it, Xiaomi turned out another accessory with a good, let and reminiscent of Apple's design. However, if you can talk about almost full copying in the case of smartphones or some other devices (air purifier, for example), then in the case of "power banks" we see the echoes of Apple, and not thoughtless copying. It is noteworthy that Xiaomi was inspired by the products of this company. And by the way, running ahead, I will say that this is why the new Xiaomi PowerBank perfectly suits as a gift to owners of smartphones and tablets Apple. The case is silvery, unpainted, all new batteries of these series (5000 and 16000) the company will release only in this form, although you can still change their appearance with branded cases. For the PowerBank 5000, the microfibre case is available in three colors: black, red and gray. It is difficult to remove and insert the battery into the case for the first time, it hardly fits inside, but then it is easier to get the accessory from the case. Whether to buy a cover, each solves for itself, but the aluminum used in the case quickly wears out without a cover. It appears scratches, scrapes, and surrounding objects, if you carry a battery in a backpack, for example, can get damaged on the sharp edges of the battery case. It costs 20 Yuan, this is about 190-200 rubles. To say something bad about the case I cannot - it protects both the battery case from damage and the objects near which you carry the battery, it's beautiful and simple, and you can choose a bright red color. The Power Banks Price, in my opinion, is quite within reasonable limits. On the battery case, on one of the ends, there is an indication of the current level of charge in the form of four LEDs, a slightly recessed inside the body of the button to check the level of charge (just press it and release), as well as a microUSB connector for charging the accessory and one USB-output, which inserts the cable to charge the smartphone. You do not need to turn on the battery to start charging, as soon as you connect the smartphone, the electronics determine the model of the smartphone (the devices from Xiaomi, Apple, Samsung, HTC, Google and BlackBerry are claimed) and supply the correct voltage. The device uses a thin battery manufactured by ATL / Lishen with the marking H994406L (18.1 Wh / h). The claimed minimum effective battery capacity is 3300 mAh, the charging time of the accessory is about 3.5 hours from the 5V / 2A charger. As examples, Xiaomi offers the possibility of charging different devices. A fully charged PowerBank 5000 mAh is enough to charge: • Xiaomi RedMi Note 4G (3100 mAh) - 1 time • Apple iPhone 6 - (1810 mAh) - 1.8 times • Apple iPhone 5S (1560 mAh) - 2.2 times I charged my Meizu MX4 Pro using a battery, and I had enough of the fully charged Xiaomi PowerBank to bring the battery level in the smartphone from about 9-10 percent to 70-80 percent. I usually put on a smartphone when it reaches a threshold of 10 percent of the charge. At the same time, it should be borne in mind that when charging the device, I did not turn it off. If you leave the smartphone to be charged in the off state, I think that the level of the charge from an external battery would reach 90-95 percent.
