While Mi Power Banks are easily overlooked for their minimalist designs, they actually boast some of the fastest charging rates. Need a recommendation? Try the Mi Power Bank 3 (available on Xiaomi Official)! One of its key features is its ability to fast charge two devices simultaneously. This can be extremely helpful since large capacity power banks tend to have slow charging times. But thanks to Xiaomi power banks, this won’t be a problem. The Mi Power Bank 3’s high density batteries also allow for multiple charges across Android and Apple devices. In addition, the battery’s 15.3mm thin body makes it one of the slimmest high capacity power banks in Singapore.
