Batteries Xiaomi PowerBank 5000 and 16000 mAh

Batteries Xiaomi PowerBank 5000 and 16000 mAh

In the line of batteries, Xiaomi already has a model with a capacity of 5200 mAh battery on the basis of size 18650, which were also used in the 10400 and 16000 mAh battery company. However, Xiaomi reasonably decided that if there is demand for compact batteries, the idea needs to be developed. So there was another similar battery capacity – 5000 mAh.

Xiaomi PowerBank 5000 mAh (NDY-02-AM)

  • Voltage: 5V / 5.1V (input / output), the current 2 / 2.1A (input / output)
  • Battery capacity: 5000 mAh
  • The stated minimum effective capacity: 3300 mAh
  • Full charging time: about 3.5 hours from the charger 5V / 2A
  • Operating temperature range: -20 degrees – 60 degrees
  • Dimensions: 125 x 69 x 9.9 mm
  • Weight: 156 grams

The new Xiaomi PowerBank 5000 is no different from other models of the company. The body is made of anodized aluminum, the company compares it with the aluminum used by Apple in “MacBooks.” Accessory able to withstand up to 50 kg weight. The edges of the body slightly rounded for ease of grip. In general, it looks new battery is easy and at the same time beautiful. What can we hide from Xiaomi received another accessory with good, albeit reminiscent of Apple products design. However, if in the case with smartphones or some other devices (air cleaner, for example), you can talk about almost complete copy, in the case of “PowerBanks” we see it echoes Apple, rather than mindless copying. It is noticeable that it inspired Xiaomi products of this company. And, by the way, I’ll tell you, that’s why the new Xiaomi PowerBank is perfect as a gift for owners of smartphones and tablets Apple.

Body silver, unpainted, new batteries of this series (5000 and 16000), the company will produce only in this way, although the change their appearance, you still can use the brand covers.

For PowerBank 5000 is available microfiber cover of three colors: black, red and gray. Remove and insert the battery in the case the first time is difficult, it barely fits inside, but then get out of the case accessory is easier. Whether to buy Case, everyone decides for himself, but used in the aluminum body wears out quickly without the cover. It appears scratches, abrasions, and surrounding objects, if you carry the battery in a backpack, for example, may be damaged by sharp edges of the battery case. Case worth 20 yuan.

Say something bad about the case can not – it protects both the battery casing from damage and items near you wear the battery, it is beautiful and simple, you can choose a bright red color. The price, in my opinion, it is within reason.

The main body of the battery, at one end, is the indication of the current level of charge in the form of four LEDs, slightly recessed into the cabinet button to check the charge level (simply press it and release), as well as microUSB-socket for charging accessory and one USB-output where to insert the cable to charge your smartphone. Include the starter battery charging is not necessary, as soon as you connect your smartphone, electronics determines smartphone (announced device from Xiaomi, Apple, Samsung, HTC, Google and BlackBerry) and provides the correct voltage.

The device uses a thin battery production ATL / Lishen marked H994406L (18.1 W \ h). The stated minimum effective battery capacity of 3300 mAh, charging time accessory – about 3.5 hours from the charger 5V / 2A. Examples of possible causes Xiaomi charging different devices. Fully charged PowerBank 5000 mAh enough to charge:

  • Xiaomi RedMi Note 4G (3100 mAh) – 1 times
  • Apple iPhone 6 – (1810 mAh) – 1.8 times
  • Apple iPhone 5S (1560 mAh) – 2.2 times

I charged the battery using your Meizu MX4 Pro, and I lacked a fully charged Xiaomi PowerBank, to bring the battery level smartphone with about 9-10 percent to 70-80 percent. I usually put on a smartphone charging when it reaches the threshold of 10 percent charge. It should be borne in mind that the charging unit, I do not turn it off. If you leave your smartphone charged off, I think the charge level of the battery reached from the outside it would be up to 90-95 percent.

In the company store Xiaomi, new slim battery costs 50 yuan. But even in this case the “PowerBank” does not lose its attractiveness as a gift or buy for yourself if you want a slim and lightweight external battery for hedging and the possibility to charge the smartphone, when he sat down at the most inopportune moment.

Xiaomi PowerBank 16000 mAh (NDY-02-AL)

  • Voltage: 5V / 5.1V (input / output), the current 2 / 2.1A (input / output)
  • Battery capacity: 16000 mAh (3.75V)
  • Either of the two USB-ports provides 5.1V / 2.1A output
  • At the same time, the two USB-ports provide 5,1V / 3.6A output
  • The stated minimum effective capacity: 10000 mAh
  • Full charging time: about 9 hours (5V / 2A), about 14.5 hours (5V / 1A)
  • Operating temperature range: -20 degrees – 60 degrees
  • Dimensions: 145 x 60.4 x 22 mm
  • Weight: 350 grams

The most powerful external battery in the lineup Xiaomi – 16000 mAh. Production of this model was asking, especially given the fact that the previous battery companies, including model 10400 mAh, equipped with only one ISB-connector.There are two connectors, and they are able to deliver up to 3.6a together or by 2.1, if only one port.

From a design standpoint, this battery is similar to the model with a capacity of 5200 (not to be confused with the above 5000 mAh) and 10400 mAh. Inside are the same size batteries from LG 18650 (LGABE11865), only increased their number (five pieces) and rearrange. Anodized aluminum, silver color, color models there, but there Silicone Case, three pieces: white, brown and blue. Cover costs 20 yuan and protects the body from damage the battery. Again, the case is useful if you plan to wear the battery in a pocket of a backpack with a lot of other items.

Several slots on the back cover of this battery for illiteracy I took for mounting on a belt or something. It turned out on the idea of developers, this slot to store the complete cable or multiple cables used to charge the smartphone battery.

At one end of the battery placed power button, battery level indication (in the form of four LEDs), as well as microUSB-socket for charging the battery and two USB-ports for charging smartphones and tablets. Include the starter battery charging is not necessary, as soon as you connect your smartphone, electronics determines smartphone (announced device from Xiaomi, Apple, Samsung, HTC, Google and BlackBerry) and provides the correct voltage. In my opinion, this model is very lacking in the normal display battery level. If a battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh or 5200 is fine and LEDs, in that mighty unit with a capacity of 16,000 mAh want to see something more precise than the four “points” that represent less than 25, about 50, about 75, and almost complete charge. I am a very good present here a small e-ink screen, for example. Would look quite the space and it is convenient.

The battery is heavy (350 grams), a relatively large, so buy it for everyday use it hardly makes sense, rather it will be very useful when traveling, whether business trip or journey. Here is revealed the full potential of 16,000 mAh. Yes, the stated minimum effective capacity of this model – 10000 mAh, but in reality, he “gives” a large capacity.

According Xiaomi, a fully charged PowerBank 16000 mAh enough to charge:

  • Xiaomi RedMi Note 4G (3100 mAh) – 3.5 times
  • Apple iPhone 6 – (1810 mAh) – 5 times
  • Apple iPad mini (4430 mAh) – 2.5 times

I charged from PowerBank 16000 mAh Meizu MX4 Pro – an average of three I came out charging in view of the fact that I do not cut off the smartphone during recharging.

The cost of the battery – 130 yuan. However one needs to consider the following points. In the line of batteries Xiaomi is a model with a capacity of 10,400 mAh, I talked about it in the previous survey accessories company , it costs 70 yuan. That is, before buying a large capacity battery from Xiaomi you need to think – to focus on one battery with a capacity of 16,000 mAh, two connectors, weighing 350 grams and dimensions of tangible or two battery capacity of 10,400 mAh, and a total weight of 500 grams? The choice, in fact, it is not obvious.

With 16,000 mAh you get more amenities (one device, less weight, no need to buy two jacket), with two 10400 mAh you seriously win in the tank. Personally, I stopped at the first option and now I use to travel to the model 16000 mAh, and the version with 10400 mAh I stayed for daily use and almost never leaves the backpack.
