The power bank having 10,000 mAh capacity is being sold at a whopping Rs 899/- on Amazon as well as Mi.com. It is available in black and blue colours. The one with 20,000 mAh capacity is being sold at Rs 1,499/- while the 10000mAh power bank will be available for Rs.899 in India and the 10000mAH variant will be available only in back colour.

The high density lithium polymer batteries help in providing optimal charging and also aid in efficient discharge. It helps to stabilise the discharge voltage and also provide advanced resistance capacities.
Low power mode can be activated by double tapping the power button. This helps to charge earphones, fitness bands, etc. The 10,000 mAh model takes 4 hours to charge whereas the 20,000 mAh model takes 7 hours to charge. In the Mi 2i model, the 20,000 mAh power bank takes 6.7 hours to reach full charge with 18 W chargers and 10 hours with 10 W chargers. In 2019, the company launched the World Cup Special Edition of the 10,000 mAh Mi 2i power bank at Rs 999/-.
It is blue in colour and pricier than the red and black editions. The World Cup edition power bank offered dual USB output to allow charging of two devices simultaneously. Hence, it does not differ much when compared to the new 3i range of power banks being pitched by Redmi today. It seems to be an improved version of an idea that was in existence more than a year ago. This power bank has a low power mode and a 90% conversion rate.
As can be seen, it may not be advantageous for a prospective buyer to upgrade power banks from the 2i World Cup version to the 3i, as the features are merely improved upon to perfection. The latter has no significant advantage over the former. However, if you have an old version of a power bank, a switch to the redmi 3i series at this price, will ensure that you have a very reasonable deal for a quality power bank with a lot of unique features.
