Xiaomi just launched the Redmi Note 2 in Malaysia last week but that doesn't stop them from show off more new gadgets.

While the new 20,000mAh Mi Power Bank is not specifically targeted for the Malaysian market for the time being, Xiaomi is claiming quite a lot with their largest power bank. With all that battery cells, Xiaomi claims that the new 20,000mAh Mi Power Bank is capable of charging the iPhone 6 upto 7 times, the Xiaomi Mi 4 for around 4.5 times and you can also expect to charge the 12" MacBook at least once provided you have a USB Type C connector in hand.

But the impressive 93% conversion rate and leading class circuit protection from Texas Instruments is nothing without the fast charging feature.

Besides the quick recharge feature, there is also two USB ports which is capable of 5.1V/3.6A outputs to charge your smartphones / tablets / MacBooks. While this is not Qualcomm's Quick Charge 2.0/3.0 but it discharges quicker than the conventional power bank.
