As consumer mobility is increasing, cellphone manufacturers are responding by adding battery capacity to the phones they release.
However, that does not mean the problem is over. The reason is, consumers are often faced with the slow process of charging batteries or being lazy because it’s complicated to have to carry charger plugs everywhere.
This problem was apparently anticipated by Xiaomi, which offered a solution in the form of a 20,000 mAh 18W Fast Charge Redmi power bank. To be more concise, just call the product with a 20,000 mAh Redmi power bank.
So, what are the advantages and disadvantages of this latest Xiaomi power bank? Find the answers in the following Redmi 20,000 mAh power bank review.
Product Design and Completeness
Redmi’s 20,000 mAh power bank sales box consists of a red box, a power bank unit, a MicroUSB type data cable, a warranty card, and a manual. The official price of the Redmi power bank is 20,000 mAh, which costs Rp 249 thousand.
Speaking of design, the first impression when looking at and holding this power bank is big and heavy. Perhaps, this is due to the large capacity of the battery carried by this mobile charger.
As a result, the Redmi 20,000 mAh power bank is difficult to put in a pocket so it requires a large enough space to store this device. Because it is clad in white, the user must also be more careful about maintaining this power bank so it does not get dirty easily.
Despite its jumbo size and weight, the Redmi 20,000 mAh power bank has several interesting features that are very useful when charging cell phones.
On the right side, there is a power button. The left and bottom sides are left plain.
The front is filled with the Redmi logo, while the back contains production information, including the use of a 20,000 mAh Lithium Polymer battery.
While the main dish is at the top of the power bank, because there are two 5V 2A input ports, 9V 2.1A, and 12V 1.5A. Most encouraging, there are two output channels consisting of microUSB and Type-C ports. For the output itself, the numbers are 5.1V 2.4A, 9V 2A and 12V 1.5A. That is, users can charge two mobile phones at the same time.
Still at the top, this power bank also has four LED lights as an indicator of the device’s remaining power. This device also has multiple protection as a safety system such as high temperature protection, short circuit, and excess power.
As the name implies, the Redmi 20,000 mAh power bank already supports the 18 Watt fast charging feature. Because of the large capacity carried by this device, the 20,000 mAh Redmi Power Bank can charge the Redmi Note 7 battery almost up to 4 times.
But keep in mind, 18W Fast Charging will be active if the device that is charged by this power bank also supports it.
Unfortunately, the process of recharging the power bank takes quite a long time. To shorten the duration of charging, it is recommended to use a charger that supports the fast charging feature.
Advantages and disadvantages
After using the Redmi 20,000 mAh power bank for almost a month, this device has plus and minus values.
Carrying a battery capacity of 20,000 mAh at a price of only Rp 249, consumers will certainly benefit from the cheap price of the device.
By providing two different output ports (MicroUSB and Type-C), this power bank can be relied on to charge two mobile phones with different plug types at the same time. This is a vital role.
As for the drawbacks, this power bank is quite heavy, requires quite large storage space, and is easily dirty.
