Xiaomi recently launched the Mi Power Bank Boost Pro in India. However, it was introduced on the crowdfunding platform that allows Xiaomi to test the waters and once the company is happy with the response the product is getting, it’s finally rolling out to the general public. The first users who buy products from the crowdfunding platform get the products slightly cheaper than the actual retail price.
Likewise, the new power bank is now available to the public for purchase through e-commerce platforms such as Mi.com and Flipkart, outside of the physical stores of Xiaomi – Mi Homes.

Features of Mi Power Bank Boost Pro Power Bank
The Mi Power Bank Boost Pro comes with a massive 30,000mAh battery that should charge most new age smartphones multiple times without needing to be charged. Xiaomi states that the power bank comes with an advanced 16-layer protection chip that protects the power bank from physical shock, short circuit, overheating, etc.
The portable charger has Power Delivery (PD) 3.0 and supports USB Type-C to USB Type-C (in / out) charging and USB Type-C charging to Lightning port. When it comes to charging this external battery, the company claims that thanks to Power Delivery (PD) 3.0, this massive capacity external battery can be recharged in just 7.5 hours using a brick. 24W charging.
In terms of output, the power bank comes with three ports – a couple USB Type-A and a USB Type-C and can charge up to three devices at the same time. Oddly, there is an additional micro-USB port which is supposed to be used to charge the power bank itself.
Speaking of portability, the power bank isn’t lightweight and weighs around 640 grams. Plus, it exceeds the maximum capacity that can be taken on board on a flight, so be aware of that.
