Xiaomi India has announced two new 16000mAh power bank and 5000mAh Mi Power Bank portable chargers in India. The devices will go on sale via the company's Mi Store from June 9. The 16000mAh power bank will be available for Rs 1,399 and 5000mAh for Rs 699 respectively.  

Xiaomi has announced the powerbanks in India through the company's Facebook page. The company has also asking users to vote for one of the two powerbanks, to choose which they want to see on sale first from June 9. Voting will close on June 2. The 16000mAh power bank features two USB 2.0 ports, one Micro-USB port and gives 5.1V/3.6A max output. It delivers a conversion rate of up to 93 percent. According to Xiaomi, the portable charger can offer "3.5 full charges for Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G, an iPhone 6 5 times; and a iPad mini 2.5 times". Xiaomi introduced its 16000mAh Mi Bank in November last year in China.  The 5000mAh Xiaomi Mi Power Bank was launched by the company earlier this month in US, UK, France, and Germany via its Mi.com. The 5000mAh Mi Power Bank comes with one USB 2.0 port and one Micro-USB port. It measures 125×69×9.9mm and weighs 156 grams. Xiaomi claims that the portable charger can offer 5.1V/2.1A output which means "one full charge for Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G".

Xiaomi has already launched a new 10000mAh powerbank, which the company claims is 21.4 percent slimmer and 30 percent more energy dense than the 10400mAh power bank it launched last year. The Mi Powerbank comes with LED notifications lights, a Micro-USB slot for charging, and a USB slot for 5.1V / 2.1A output. The device is available on the Mi website in red, silver and Champagne colours. Xiaomi says, “We’ve just introduced our latest 10,000mAh Mi power bank that’s 21.4% slimmer and 30% more energy dense than the 10,400mAh version! This means it can fully charge a Mi Note 2.1x, and iPad 1x.”  Smartphones still struggle to make their batteries last over 12 hours making powerbanks the best options for those who need to carry extra juice in their pockets all the time. There has been an increasing demand for lighter and portable powerbanks. Apart from Xiaomi, OnePlus and Asus have also launched their powerbanks in India. The OnePlus 10000mAh Power Bank is priced at Rs. 1,399 and the Asus ZenPower 10,050mAh power bank is available for Rs 1,499.
