I am sure that very often people find themselves in a situation where they urgently need to use the phone, and he is about to sit down, or is already completely “dead” and at the same time, there is no access to the outlet. This often happens on tourist trips, business trips or in nature. In order to get as far away from this problem as possible, the market has long been developing the direction of portable power supplies, which are simply called “banks” by the people.
Equipment. The device comes in a minimalistic white box. In addition to the battery itself, you can find only the instruction manual and a short usb-Cable for charging.
A huge plus is that you can purchase a protective silicone case for your battery, as the paint begins to peel off with prolonged use. The covers are very pleasant to the touch. And increase the level of gripping gadgets. Their main goal is to preserve the original appearance of the “bank”. These cases are not very expensive, from 4 to 10 dollars.
Design. The basis of the stand-material of the Xiaomi Mi Power Bank 5000 case is anodized aluminum. The metal pleasantly cools the palm and does not try to slip out of it, thanks to its roughness. Top and bottom is white plastic. “Bank” looks very modern, minimalistic, as usual, in the spirit of Xiaomi.
All device controls are concentrated on its upper end. There is an activation button, four LED indicators, a micro-usb (for recharging the “bank” itself) and the standard usb – a connector that will be responsible for filling the battery of the connected device.
As mentioned earlier, the battery capacity is 5000 mAh. According to the manufacturer, the volume should be enough for 2 full charges iPhone 5s. I have melted the “five” and my device “bank” Xiaomi Mi Power Bank 5000 charged from 0 to 100 percent 4 times and one more time to eighty percent, after which it itself was discharged.
The downside is that the battery itself takes a very long time to charge. It has been on my charge for more than 6 hours, so I think it’s better to charge the battery overnight. Of course, I don’t always remember when I put my device on charge, and I can’t predict how much charge is left in the “bank”. Therefore, a row of four LEDs helps a lot in this matter. When one-25 percent charge is on. Glowing 2 means exactly half, 3 — 75 percent, and four is 100 percent of the charge.
The strength of the outgoing current for this model is 2.1 A, the voltage is 5 volts.
The weight cans are light enough, of course it is felt in the pocket, but compared to other “banks”, this one is one of the lightest and thinnest.
Also, a huge plus is that you can charge the Xiaomi Mi Power Bank 5000 battery not only smartphones, but also cameras, tablets, and everything that fits the micro connector.usb.
Conclusion.I think. that this device will be an excellent solution for travelers and active users of gadgets who constantly want to be in touch. Also, it will be a godsend for a gamer who does not let his device out of his hands. I think it should be taken. Especially for such a price and for such quality. You can, I think, pay more for the opportunity not to think about the outlet for a long time.
