Xiaomi Power Bank 5000 How to Turn Off

Gradually, external batteries become popular even among users far from all the vicissitudes of the mobile industry. For some, acquaintance with power banks started with Xiaomi Mi Power Bank 10400 mAh. Among them, I: seeing a review of the Chinese miracle, I was struck by the tumble of its beauty and compactness.

However, not everything was so smooth. It remained unclear why the 10400 mAh battery has only one usb port. I still did not like the dimensions of 5200. Yes, it was more compact than 10400, but still remained a thick brick, which is difficult to fit in a jacket pocket.

The company listened to consumer complaints by updating the model to 5200 “Machs” and adding a battery to 16000 in the line.

Let’s start with the updated 5200 mAh battery. As I already said, many were not satisfied with its size, because in thickness it did not differ from its older brother. As a result, we got a slightly smaller battery, but the device has become much more compact, but first things first.

As before, the gadget is made of anodized aluminum. This is the same metal that Apple uses in its devices (or is very similar to it), so together a bunch of “bank” and “apple” looks very good. True, now only one color is available, and not a whole placer as before.

The battery looks like a flattened Power Bank 5200 mAh: the upper and lower faces are straight, the sides are rounded. The launch of this model was accompanied by a large number of explicit teasers that made it clear that the battery would become thinner. Weighing 156 grams, you don’t feel it at all in the bag. In his pocket you can guess his presence, but this one does not interfere.

At the top there are USB for connecting devices, micro-USB for charging the battery itself, four LEDs showing the charge, and a power button. She has a fairly mild stroke with a confident click. When connecting the device, you do not need to press it, because the device itself will understand when it is necessary to turn on. By pressing the button, you can disconnect \ resume charging, as well as find out the remaining battery capacity.

Inside is a thin battery manufactured by ATL / Lishen H994406L. It takes about 3 hours to charge the “bank” at 2 A. According to the manufacturer, the “five thousandth” battery can charge Xiaomi RedMi Note 4G (3100 mAh). 1 time, Apple iPhone 6. (1810 mAh). 1.8 times, Apple iPhone 5S (1560 mAh). 2.2 times. In my case, he was able to charge Google Nexus 5 (2300 mAh). 1.7 times and Sony Xperia Z3 (3100 mAh). 1.2 times, which is even better than Xiaomi claims. Also, an output current of 2A allows you to charge the tablets. It is possible that over time, these indicators may deteriorate. During charging, I did not disconnect the device.

  • Battery capacity: 16000 mAh

  • Weight: 350 grams

Design

The most voluminous model in the lineup also does not violate the general style and looks like Xiaomi Mi Power Bank 5200 times two, but not in width (like 10400), but in height. As always, the edges are rounded, on the bottom there is all information and certificates, and on top 2 USB for connecting devices, micro-USB for charging the battery itself, four LEDs showing the charge and the power button. As in the case of the five thousandth, there is only one color scheme on sale. silver. You can’t tell a lot here, like all devices of this kind from Xiaomi, the “Yuank” looks very simple and pleasant. It is noticeable that the company is inspired by the work of Joni Quince and Apple in general.

Even considering the size, the battery fits easily in my everyday bag, which is difficult to put on the iPad Mini. This is not to say that this is a gadget for every day. Rather, for trips, so that on the way you can recharge all the necessary devices. And the presence of two USB ports contributes to this. The Xiaomi website writes that one battery charge is enough to charge Xiaomi RedMi Note 4G. 3.5 times, Apple iPhone 6. 5 times, Apple iPad mini (4430 mAh). 2.5 times. It was difficult enough for me to check, because I always carried this “giant” with me, and from time to time I connected the Sony Xperia Z3. As a result, one charge was enough for a week of use.

Inside, batteries from LG and Panasonic are used in size 18650. All Xiaomi batteries are equipped with many protection systems: from overheating, from overdischarge, from short circuit, from high voltage, and so on. This is very important, especially when dealing with devices of this size and capacity.

conclusions

Both devices sunk into my heart and will stay there for a long time. High-quality performance, impeccable work, nice appearance, compactness, all this is about Xiaomi PowerBank 5000mAh and 16000 mAh. The capacity of the first is enough to (at least) once fully charge the smartphone, and it can easily fit in the back pocket of your trousers. The 16,000 version will help out on a trip, or it will “feed” the device every day if you leave it in your bag.
