Don&rsquo;t forget that you can shoot for the Mi Band too as it&rsquo;s released at the same time.</p> <p dir="ltr">But back to the power bank: this behemoth of a battery isn&rsquo;t quite as scary as it looks; it measures 145 x 60.4 x 22mm and weighs 350g. As you can see from the picture below it&rsquo;s roughly the length of an outstretched palm. So it&rsquo;s hefty, but at least it isn&rsquo;t crazy big and heavy, and shouldn&rsquo;t be much of a burden in your bag.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p dir="ltr">This is Xiaomi&rsquo;s first power bank with dual USB outputs, which support 5.1V and 2.1A charging individually. When both ports are in use, it has a maximum output of 3.6A. It also supports fast charging thanks to a 5V, 2.0A USB input. Despite the massive capacity you can get a full charge with a 5V, 2A charger in nine hours, as opposed to almost 15 hours on 1A chargers &ndash; like those that come stock with the iPhone.</p> <p dir="ltr">As with its previous efforts, you can count on the build quality of the 16,000mAh power bank to be excellent, and in no way does it look the part of a RM79 battery &ndash; yes you heard that right, all the power in the world in your hand for the price of a steak. No prizes for guessing which one gives you better mileage. And value, for that matter.</p> <p dir="ltr">If you carry multiple power-chugging devices like a phablet or a tablet, then this is essential for your sanity if you&rsquo;re out and about most of the time. It is available now, but only if you purchase a&nbsp;Power Bundle (retailing from&nbsp;<strong>RM614 to RM668</strong>).&nbsp;Xiaomi is also giving out three power banks in their Facebook contest <a href="https://www.facebook.com/MiSingaporeOfficial/posts/818085148232588" target="_blank">here</a>.</p> <p dir="ltr"><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/xiaomi/xiaomi-s-new-mi-band-fitness-tracker-may-cost-less-meals-you-are-keeping-track/news" target="_blank">Xiaomi&rsquo;s Mi Band goes on sale on 16 December</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="Barely fits onto the palm of your hand" alt="The Xiaomi Power Bank offers 16,000mAh of juice for a pittance" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/size.jpg?1418358108" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/my/xiaomi/xiaomi-power-bank-offers-16000mah-juice-pittance/news#comments Xiaomi Fri, 12 Dec 2014 02:43:46 +0000 Tein Hee Seow 1455180 at http://www.stuff.tv Xiaomi’s new Mi Band fitness tracker costs less than the meals you are keeping track of http://www.stuff.tv/my/xiaomi/xiaomi-s-new-mi-band-fitness-tracker-costs-less-meals-you-are-keeping-track/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> At RM59, Xiaomi’s basic fitness tracker is undeniably a steal, and it has some nifty tricks to boot </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="567" height="425" title="Xiaomi’s new Mi Band fitness tracker costs less than the meals you are keeping track of" alt="Xiaomi’s new Mi Band fitness tracker costs less than the meals you are keeping t" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/Mi%20Band%20Cover.jpg?1418356940" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>If you weren&rsquo;t sure before whether to take the plunge with a fitness band, Xiaomi is giving you way fewer reasons to say no.&nbsp;</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/my/users/justin-choo" title="View user profile.">Justin Choo</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>And plunge you may too, with the Mi Band &ndash; it&rsquo;s certified IP67, meaning it&rsquo;s very resistant to dust and can be submerged up to a depth of 1m for 30 minutes at Sunday funday pool parties.</p> <p class="p2">The Mi Band is a fairly simple tracker: it tracks your steps (no altimeter here) and monitors your sleep patterns automatically without you having to press a button. While it doesn&rsquo;t do much beyond measuring your steps taken as well as calories burned, and there&rsquo;s no integration with popular monitoring apps like Runkeeper, it&rsquo;s got enough of the basics covered to warrant a place on your wrist.</p> <p class="p2">It works with many Android phones but for full functionality, you need a Mi 3 or a Redmi Note 4G. One of its coolest features is its ability to automatically unlock your Mi Phone&rsquo;s screen by putting the Mi Band in close proximity with the phone. Other nice touches include being able to use the vibration to notify you of incoming calls, as well as a wake up alarm to gently vibrate you into consciousness.</p> <p class="p2">The Mi Band&rsquo;s standout feature is undoubtedly its battery life &ndash; rated for 30 days compared to its competitors like the Fitbit Flex or Jawbone UP24, which are rated for 5 days and 14 days respectively. This is partly due to its use of power-efficient Bluetooth v4.0.&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> The Price is Right </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>As par for the course for virtually every Xiaomi product, it&rsquo;s the price of the Mi Band that puts it in a league of its own. At RM59, it&rsquo;s the cheapest fitness tracker by a country mile &ndash; you can&rsquo;t even buy a set of replacement bands for some of the other trackers for that money. The Mi Band ships with a stock black strap, but you can get other colours to suit your mood. Unfortunately, there&rsquo;s no word as to when these additional colours will be made available.&nbsp;</p> <p class="p1">Low maintenance and affordable, it&#39;s the perfect starter activity tracker for someone who&#39;s looking to get into the wearable action.

Don&rsquo;t go hogging your phone&rsquo;s internal and external storage with useless kitty videos.</p> <p dir="ltr"><strong>To activate</strong>: go to the security app, select cleaner followed by start scan and clean up.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Great for</strong>: hoarders who keep adding more unnecessary photos into their phones.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-9"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Lock your apps </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><iframe class="vine-embed" frameborder="0" height="567" src="https://vine.co/v/MTKM3hngrul/embed/simple" width="567"></iframe></p> <p dir="ltr">This is another feature for the OCD freak in you.
