Remember when Xiaomi unveiled the huge 20,000mAh Mi Power Bank back in November last year? Well, it appears the Chinese company will be bringing it into Malaysia soon alongside its new wearable: the Mi Band 1S.
The high capacity of the 20,000mAh Mi Power Bank is definitely useful for those who are always running out of battery, and it boasts some pretty respectable features. These include support for fast charge, a new and grippier scratch-resistant design (it is made from a mix of polycarbonate and ABS plastic), as well as two USB output ports; you can even charge Apple’s new 12-inch MacBook with this power bank.
As for the Mi Band 1S, which has appeared on SIRIM earlier this year, it is largely similar to its predecessor. It is still a fitness tracker at its core, but it has gained a new hardware: an optical heart rate sensor. With this addition, the Mi Band 1S should be able to function more effectively as a fitness tracker – not to mention better sleep tracking. It also features a new strap that is supposedly more durable, although the Mi Band 1S has a slightly shorter battery life; this is likely due to the heart rate sensor.
At the time of this writing, Xiaomi Malaysia has not revealed the prices of the 20,000mAh Mi Power Bank and Mi Band 1S yet. Regardless, these two products may just go on sale at the same time as the Redmi Note 3 on the 6th of April next week.
