This allows you to repeatedly recharge any type of smartphone or other devices such as tablets and wearables. Support is fundamental Quick Charge 3.0 di Qualcomm, which can be exploited by recharging only a single device, to concentrate all the power in a single output.
The recharge is very efficient in this mode and can match a Quick Charge wall power supply.

Furthermore, it is possible to simultaneously exploit the 2 ports present to charge 2 devices simultaneously.

Xiaomi Power Bank 2C It is an excellent product, able to guarantee more top-ups for any device and with an excellent quality-price ratio, costing around 30 €. It is a durable product for those who really need to have their devices always loaded and ready to use.

It is not possible to make comparisons with the many low quality powerbanks on the market, as this is an extremely valuable and reliable accessory, provided it bears the weight, which as mentioned is not the most contained, but still proportioned to the capacity of mAh.
