Xiaomi is currently asking customers to show support in completing the crowdfunding round for Mi Boost Pro Power Bank at Rs. 1,999 per unit. Post crowdfunding, the power bank will be priced at Rs. 3,499. It will be available in a single Black colour option.
Mi Boost Pro Power Bank features three ports — two USB Type-A and one USB Type-C. The USB Type-C port can be used for charging any compatible device, as well as to charge the power bank itself. Users can also charge the power bank with a micro-USB cable as well. It comes with 18W fast charging support and can charge three devices simultaneously.

There is a Smart Power Management feature and low power charging mode for smaller gadgets. On double pressing the power button, the power bank enters a 2-hour low charging mode to juice up devices like wireless earphones and smart bands. Lastly, Xiaomi says that the Mi Boost Pro Power Bank comes with 16-layer Advanced Chip Protection that shields the devices against overheating, over current, and short circuits.
