Known as the Mi Powerbank Pro, it has a battery capacity of 10,000mAh with several charging voltages ((5V/2A 9V/2A 12V/1.5A). This means that you can use the Mi Powerbank Pro to charge a wide range of mobile devices such as the Mi Note, Mi Band and even the MacBook. 

It has a 18W ultra-fast charger which shortens the charging time to 3.5 hours. The Mi Powerbank Pro is also thinner at 12.6mm and is considered light at 223g. Xiaomi will be selling the 10,000mAh Mi Powerbank Pro for 149 yuan (~RM94). Local availability is not confirmed at time of publication.
