Conclusion
The build quality of the Mi Power Bank is very solid, though a bit heavy weighing at 250 gram.
The smooth edged design makes it ergonomically friendly and easy to grab.
The Mi Power Bank will not charge if your PC or Mac USB ports are not the high-powered 1A rated ones.
Power Bank doesn’t heats-up during charging of my iPhone 5, the first Power Bank I have that doesn’t generate heat during operation.
Charging an iPhone 5 that has it’s battery flat to 100% full charge took about 1 hour 51 minutes.
Will be great if there are 2 x USB Output instead of one.
However for the price at SGD13.99, it’s definitely a great Power Bank to have.

  1. Hi….I have bought my mi power bank yesterday and charfed it before using it but whenever I connect my blackberry 9900 or other phones it only charge for a. Second and shutt down itself….am confused

    • Hi there, did you make sure you have fully charge the Mi Power Bank (pressing the power button to see 4 LED lights on).
      I believe for using with a Blackberry, a charge-only cable will be more advisable than a Charge & data sync cable (which comes with the Blackberry) to have it working.
      If other phones were also having problem with charging, perhaps you might be unlucky to have gotten a faulty set.
