That those with premium smartphones can buy

Xiaomi is all about bringing high-end technology to the masses at low prices. And its brand new power bank is another product that fits the bill... well, almost. Priced at just ₹2499, this 10,000mAh Mi Wireless Power Bank is quite literally priced to move. Unlike most regular power banks that charge using a cable, the Mi Wireless Power Bank can also charge a device that supports the Qi Wireless charging standard, which means it can charge smartphones without plugging them in. Before you get all excited about this quality, affordable power bank that can charge smartphones wirelessly at 10W (18W with the cable), you have to remember that not all smartphones (pretty much every Xiaomi smartphone on sale in India) does not pack in wireless charging capabilities. These are usually reserved for premium smartphones (not even OnePlus devices have them built in) that mainly are limited to those from Samsung, LG, Huawei and Apple. You can still wirelessly charge accessories like earphones cases (mostly Samsung, Huawei and Apple) and fast charge smartphones with a regular cable. However, given its price you can now get more than one and place them wherever you like.
