Xiaomi launched the 10,000 mAh and 20,000 mAh Mi Power Bank 2i in India last year in November with a price tag of ₹799 and ₹1499 respectively. However, the price of both these power banks, along with 10,000 mAh Mi Power Bank Pro, was increased later on. But now, Xiaomi has announced price drop for all three of these power banks in India.
