    [​IMG] A cheapo from CD-R King on the left and a Xiaomi I got as a freebie in some conference on the right.

    The cheapo is about a year old now and still works. Admittedly, I only use it maybe 2-3 times a year. The Mi can hold about 2 full charges of an iPhone 5S.

    My mi 16000mAh goes from 4 to 2 lights after charging an iPad Air 2 from 10 to 100%. I'm a bit disappointed. I got this directly from Xiaomi so I'm sure it's legit. Anybody else having a similar experience?

    ^the ipad air's battery is huge so if your charging it with a powerbank, do expect it to drain a bit.

    agree with sunil_k, please be informed that ipad air's battery is 7,340 mAh and i guess it's normal that it will down more or less 50% of 16,000 mAh capacity. :)

    ^and assuming 80% efficiency, you only have 12800mah to work with.

    I think that mi powerbank isnt legit :/ (but hey, for a freebie i wont complain haha) maybe its the reason why you only get 2 charges?? I get 4-4.5 charges on mine easily (iphone 6 + 10400 mi)

    I ordered 3x. I'm not worried about shipping since it's more than 1k. [emoji4]
    I think the sale lasted for more than 1 hr. this time. Most probably only a few were interested this time due to the price. [emoji4]

    I already bought 6 10400 mAH previously from Lazada. I owned 2 so that makes it 20800 mAH with a price of 645x2=1290.00 [emoji41][emoji41][emoji41]

    Just sayin...
