Xiaomi announced the launch of its new Mi mobile Power Bank 2, with a capacity of 20,000 mAh. The original 20,000 mAh Mi power bank was introduced in India earlier this year. The Mi Power Bank 2 comes with support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 and two-way fast charging.

Available only in white colour, Mi Power Bank 2 retains ‘surface bumps’ for grip, and is slightly thicker than its predecessor by 2.1 mm. Its dimensions are 135.5 x 67.6 x 23.9 compared to the first generation power banks 141.9 x 73 x 21.8.
Mi Power Bank 2 uses high density lithium polymer batteries. Where the single port output on the first generation model is 5V/2A, the second generation measures at 5V/2.4A- 9V/2A and 12V/1.5A. The dual port rating is still the same at 5V/3.6A. The company claims that the Mi Power Bank 2 can fully charge the Xiaomi Max with its 4,850 mAh battery in about 2 and a half hours. The power bank is compatible with most smartphones, tablets and smartwatches such as the Mi Band 2.
Mi Power Bank 2 is priced at Yuan 149 (similar to the first gen) which is roughly Rs 1,450, and is expected to go on sale on December 19. Xiaomi did not however release its dates for launch in India.
