[Discussion] How to spot a fake xiaomi powerbank before even opening the box!

How to confirm the authenticity of Xiaomi Mi Power Bank –

You might know before even opening the box!

Method 1 (Simplest) – Check the originality of the product by looking for the anti-counterfeit label on the box package.
Simply scratch the grey coating to find a 20-digit numeric code.Then visit http://chaxun.mi.com/"

chaxun.mi.com, select language or directly visit mi.com/verify, enter the 20-digit serial number and fill the Captcha code for online verification.

Hit the ‘Verify now’ button and it should show that it is Mi power bank, that means your product is genuine.

Overall with a fake you get

Reduced power efficiency, so your powerbank drains faster.
Less protection during charging and using.
Lower quality and potentially dangerous batteries.
A weaker construction

It’s all about safety.

The lack of some safety features and poor quality batteries are two real risks in sticking with fakes, they usually have a cheaper price tag but as you have seen they also lack the advanced charging and output circuits that Xiaomi are famous for.
