The 20,000mAh Mi Power Bank 2i supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 support on one of its ports. It also comes with dual-USB output which allows you to charge two devices at the same time. When only a single port is used for charging, the Mi Power Bank 2i will initiate Quick Charge 3.0, provided it is supported by the smartphone. When the dual-USB output is used, the Mi Power Bank 2i is said to adjust power output according to the device capacity. Also Read - Best wearable gift ideas under Rs 5,000 for Father's Day 2021
Xiaomi says that with two devices charging, one can expect up to 5.1V/3.6A dual output. It is also optimized for low power charging of devices like Bluetooth headsets and fitness bands. You can double press the power button to start 2-hour low power charging on the Mi Power Bank 2i.
The 10,000mAh Mi Power Bank 2i also comes with dual-USB output, but it doesn’t support Quick Charge 3.0. This model is also equipped with low-power charging mode. It features an anodized aluminum alloy case which is claimed to withstand collisions and impacts. The anodized finish is also said to be resistant to sweat, corrosion and daily wear. In terms of power capacity, the 10,000mAh Mi Power Bank 2i offers an actual output capacity of 6,500mAh and conversion rate of over 90 percent.
