How to Check if Your Xiaomi Mi Power Bank is Original

In the recent days, Xaomi has become popular brand in India. Other than smartphones they are creating many other products in the market. Those includes Power banks, LED lights, etc. But, according to some reports its fake products are also being sold in the market. Specially the duplicates of Mi power banks are being sold at rapid rate. That’s why in this article I’m aiming to let you know some of the differences between the original and fake Xiaomi Mi Power Banks.

Identifying the Fake & Real Xiaomi Mi Power Banks

So, if you’re recently thinking to buy a new Mi power bank, it will be great if you read out the following tips to identify if the power bank is real.

#1. All Official Variants of Mi Power Banks

Xiaomi sells its Power Banks in the following 6 variants of different capacities, i.e.
  • Mi 5,000 mAh Power Bank
  • Mi 5,200 mAh Power Bank
  • Mi 10,000 mAh Power Bank
  • Mi 10,400 mAh Power Bank
  • Mi 16,000 mAh Power Bank
  • Mi 20,000 mAh Power bank
Out of these, the 5,200 mAh and 10,400 mAh variants are probably discontinued and you’ll barely find them in the market. So, if you come across a Mi branded power bank of any different capacity other than the above six, it’s absolutely fake.

2. Pass-Through Charging Capability

You can also judge an original Mi power bank with its pass-through charging capability. It means a real Xiaomi power bank will be capable of charge a mobile phone while it itself is being charged. If the power bank is being charged from a weak power source such as computer USB port, it won’t able to pass through charge.
But, the fake power banks don’t have this capability. They doesn’t pass the power to charge any mobile phone connected to it while it itself being charged. So, it can be a strong test to check if Mi power bank is original or not.

3. Check out the Brand of Inbuilt Batteries

Original Xiaomi power banks always come with the branded inbuilt batteries from international brands such as Samsung, LG, Panasonic etc.
If you see any power bank with any local or non-branded battery, it’s definitely a fake power bank.

4.Text Printed at the Bottom of the Power Bank

You can also differentiate genuine and counterfeit Xiaomi power banks from the text printed at the bottom of the product. The genuine product’s print is lighter and clear and the fake power bank’s print is darker and blurry.
