Mi Power Bank Pro supports two-way fast charging|(With up to 18W )

The normal Mi Power Bank 2i will take almost 6-8 hours to charge completely but it supports fast charging for the devices connected (output). On the other hand, Mi Power Bank pro supports two-way fast charging. The power bank itself will get charged in 3.5 – 4 hours and it can charge a 3090mAh Android device (QC2.0) in less than 2 hours.
