Time to check out another power bank from Xiaomi, this time it is probably the most interesting product of this kind they are currently offering – the 10000 mAh Xiaomi Mi Power Bank Pro (PLM03ZM). It is a compact and nice looking power bank with aluminum case that features USB type-C charging port for faster charging of the power bank’s battery and supports up to 18W fast charging both ways. The power bank supports the Quick Charge 3.0 technology by Qualcom for faster charging of compatible smartphones and there is automatic smart voltage switching between 5V, 9V and 12V (depending on the device you connect) in order to reach up to 18W input and output if supported. Also the PLM03ZM apparently also supports HiSilicon’s Fast Charging Protocol used by Huawei, so compatible smartphones can also benefit from faster charging. Do note that there is a PLM01ZM version of that power bank that is a bit older and Quick Charge 2.0 and no support for HiSilicon’s Fast Charging, so make sure you heck the model number just to be sure you are getting the newer PLM03ZM version that we have tested.

With the 10000 mAh Xiaomi Mi Power Bank Pro (PLM03ZM) we have performed two tests, one with with 1.0A constant current discharge and one with 2.4A as the maximum rating for the product for 5V. Since the power bank uses automatic smart switching between 5V, 9V and 12V if it detects a compatible device we were not able to test at the higher voltages unfortunately. Since we got really good results at 5V we expect that the performance with higher voltage and lower amps – 12V 1.5A and 9V 2A should also be really good. At over 7 Amps of usable capacity at both of our tests we can clearly say that the performance of the 10000 mAh Xiaomi Mi Power Bank Pro is really good, making the whole product a very nice overall choice for a mobile power bank with high capacity.

The performance of the 10000 mAh Xiaomi Mi Power Bank Pro in our tests:

– 7394 mAh at 1.0A load
– 7063 mAh at 2.4A load

– 36.92 Wh at 1.0A load
– 34.33 Wh at 2.4A load
