Xiaomi YEUX mobile solar powerbank launched with a $49 price tagby Marco Lancaster
Converting solar rays in electricity is already a thing, however, when will the smartphones start to benefit from this technology? Xiaomi’s answer is right now. The company has just launched a new solar power bank on the Chinese Youpin platform. Xiaomi YEUX solar mobile power bank is the best power bank for long outdoor travel scenarios where there is no electricity. You can benefit from it during cycling, mountaineering, and camping. We can say that it isn’t an expensive solution if you take in consideration how free you are with this power bank. Xiaomi is asking just CNY 349 (~$49).
Xiaomi YEUX solar mobile power bank makes use of high-sensitivity, high-conversion, single-crystal silicon solar panels. The conversion rate is improved if you compare it with traditional solar panels. The panel can even be recharged on rainy days. To improve the usability of this power back, you can fit the charging panel on a backpack to charge while on the move. The board adopts solar chip technology to automatically detect the intensity of sunlight and match the optimal power supply scheme for the load. The gree light will indicate better sunlight, the yellow indicates average and the red light indicates weaker sunlight.
The Power bank has a 6,000mAh battery and supports the standard electrical charge
Now the most important characteristic of this power bank – the capacity. The solar charger packs a built-in 6,400mAh battery. Interestingly enough, it also supports standard charging via electricity. You can use the solar light to keep it charged, but nothing will prevent you from using a regular power source when it is available. The charger has a three-output interface design, two USB-A interfaces with 5V/3A each, and a Type-C interface with a maximum output of 5V/3A. It can charge smartphones, tablets, cameras, other power banks, and other devices supporting the already referred connectors. Last but not least, it also sports a micro-USB interface with a maximum input of 5V/2A. Even your old gadgets can enjoy this power bank.
Last but not least, the power bank is protected by encrypted Oxford cloth ensuring resistance and durability. Moreover, there is a PU coating to ensure it is waterproof and doesn’t smell over time. Considering all the features and benefits, we can understand how this is an affordable product. We hope, that Xiaomi doesn’t keep this power bank exclusive for the Chinese market.
