The device gets two USB Type-A ports, one Micro USB port, and a USB Type-C port. Three ports can be used to charge any device. The two USB Type-A ports and Type-C port support 18W fast charging. The Type-C port can also be used to charge the power bank itself. The company claims that using their 30W proprietary charger, the power bank can be charged completely in 7.5 hours.
The power bank supports a low power mode that can be accessed by double-pressing the power button. This mode will safeguard smaller devices that need a low power surge.
Xiaomi has claimed that the new power bank can charge an iPhone SE (2020) 10.5 times and a Mi 10 or Redmi K30 Pro 4.5 times. The large battery supports 18W of fast charging as well which, the company claimed can charge an iPhone 11 completely in just 1.45 hours. This will be much faster than the 5W charger that the company provides.
