Xiaomi Mi Power Bank 3 Ultra Compact Review

With the increasing demand for mobile devices, many manufacturers have come out with different power banks with different features. One such power bank is the Xiaomi Mi Power Bank 3 Ultra Compact which has a high battery capacity of 20000mAh with fast charging support. The device is also capable of charging most smartphones three times over and has a special low power mode for devices such as fitness trackers and Bluetooth speakers.

The device has a fairly sleek design with a matte finish around the body and a glossy finish on the two ends that houses the ports, 4-LED indicator and circular capacity check button. All functional parts are securely encased in an indented surface that is sturdy enough to withstand general wear and tear. The power button is easily accessible and has a light grey color that makes it stand out from the rest of the body.

Xiaomi claims that the Power Bank can charge most phones and tablets more than three times over with the standard 5V/2A output. This is quite impressive and surpasses the competition from brands like Anker and RAVPower in this regard. The device also offers a high-efficiency mode that reduces the output to preserve power for longer periods of time, which is useful for devices that drain quickly.

The power bank can also charge laptops, but it requires a compatible charger for that to happen. I tried charging a HP Envy x360 and a Lenovo L480 and both were able to charge with the power bank with no issues. It did take a little bit longer to full charge a laptop than it would on an original charger.
