As Xiaomi becoming more popular, we cannot deny the fact that there will be challenges to overcome.
One of the challenge is to avoid Knock-Off.



Recently a groupmate from Nexus 5 Philippines(you need to be a member to see the actual post) that he bought a Mi Powerbank 10400mAh quoted:

OT: Hindi ko na kailangang tipirin ang paggamit kay n5 pag nasa byahe dahil dito sa xiaomi 10400mah powerbank. 500 bucks ko lang nabili sa dibisorya."
OT: I don't need to save the usage of my N5 if I am in a trip because of this xiaomi 10400mAh powerbank. I bought just for 500 bucks at Divisoria."

What's the catch? Well it turn's out to be a Knock-off. A fellow groupmate bought Mi Powerbank from Singapore and compared the device.


Why is it a big deal? Knock-offs didn't have quality and security measures, it is a harmful product.

As quoted the said product didn't serve well:



Ok naman sya.. As paperweight. Hahaha.
"it's just ok.. As paperweight. Hahaha."

Hanggang 2 charges lang.
"Only for 2 charges".


Verdict: The original one was reported to have fully charge a Nexus 5 for 4 times.
Not only it is harmful to buy Knock-off products, it will also waste your money. We are encouring everyone to please do buy only at
Lazada Philippines, the Official Partner of Xiaomi in the Philippines

Have you bought Knock-off products recently, if yes where did you bought the product? Share your experiences below!

Hope Lazada sells it asap as I have been itching to get my hands on this gorgeous powerbank since it was launched.
