Realme Power Bank vs Xiaomi Mi 10,000mAh Power Bank
If launched in India, the new 10,000mAh Power Bank will compete with Xiaomi Mi Power Bank 2i with 10,000mAh capacity. These power banks start at Rs 899 in the country and also support 18W fast charging. While Realme’s power bank relies on USB Type-C port for input, the Mi Power Bank 2i uses micro USB port for input. Both the power banks should take approximately four and a half hours to fully charge over a standard cable.
There is no word yet on whether Realme plans to bring this power bank to India just yet. However, the company has announced an event on September 13 where it will launch the Realme XT. The smartphone will be the first with a 64-megapixel main camera in India. There is a possibility that this device gets launched as one more thing by the company.
