Xiaomi is known for throwing out extravagant gadgets from time to time, and last on the list is the ZMI hand warmer / power bank. The device as the name suggests is a hand warmer and power bank in one, which can keep your hands warm in winters and also ensure that your phone stays charged when the battery is running low.
Unfortunately, the ZMI Hand Warmer / Power Bank has only been launched in China for now and is priced at 89 yuan. For the price, it gets a 5,000mAh power bank that also powers the hand warmer function. Xiaomi claims that the hand warmer features PTC self-limiting temperature heating technology, a patented design that promises safety and reliability.
Xiaomi explains that the technology uses PID constant temperature control for precise control of the heating temperature, thus making it safe and stable. According to information revealed by the company, in the safe temperature range, the device can reach the comfortable temperature of the human body which can reach up to about 52.
It is touted to charge a iPhone 12 faster than 5W Apple battery charger. The hand warmer features PTC type temperature heating technology with a patented design that is said to be able to control temperature consistently and accurately. The device can quickly heat up to a temperature comfortable for the human body, reaching a maximum temperature of around 52. Using its 5000mAh battery pack, the device when fully charged can switch from low temperature to high temperature to provide use continuous between 2 -4 hours.
As for switching the device to the power bank function, the device can be used to charge the iPhone 12 and with ZMI’s USB cable, in about 54 minutes, claimed to be much shorter than using the 5W Applecharger.
In addition, the power bank is also compatible with other smart devices and smartphones. The company also claims that it can charge low-current devices like Bluetooth headsets and fitness bands as well. There is also an LED light that can be used as a flashlight. For those wondering if the hand warmer and power bank functions can be used together, Xiaomi has announced that only one of the two can be used at a time to improve security. As for safety, the battery inside is a lithium ion cell which can provide protection for multiple circuits.
Apart from by charging your phone, the new Xiaomi power bank can also warm your hands when it’s too cold.
