    I bought a MI 10400 mah power bank from flipkart., and was shocked to find that there was no anti-counterfeit label on the box.
    But the lights were small and the below written codes were light in color
    There was no Mi label printed on the USB.

    So how can I know that the power bank I got from flipkart is genuine or not?

    Hi Mayur. This is ann. First of all a VERY BIG THANK YOU for giving all the most important information. Its very helpful. Secondly I m planning to buy MI 10400 mah power bank from a store named Alfa in Mumbai. I personally had been there today to chek for some powerbanks and luckily I found MI. Its into a proper box packing wid that scratch code on one side…its costing me Rs. 999/- but with NO WARRANTY AT ALL. As you know dat we can put the 20 digit code on the Chinese MI website but due to not entering d captcha code it doesnt proceed further. Do u recommend I shud go further and buy dis with no warranty. Kindly reply. As I have seen u replying to most of the users of ur blog hoping for a reply soon. Thank you once again…ann

    bought a XM 16000 mah power bank in shum shui po in hong kong in the golden computer arcade. seems like a legit place so i didnt worry. upon seeing this site i ran it through your tests:
    1. code check fails – shit
    2. holes look small, not as big as the fake one but not as small as the real one. hard to judge from photo
    3. font looks sharp but is darker compared to photo shown against the real
    4. tried short circuiting it and it didnt budge, some relief
    5. the button doesnt do anything while charging
    6. cable has white interior and mi logo engraved
    watching the XM video on spotting fakes, i have also noticed that my one has two rice white coloured female USB ports so i really am scratching my head
    i either got a really good imitation or they have changed some parts of the product

    Hi Mayur. Thanks for this valuable article. I want to buy MI Power Bank (5200 mAh) from . \”Rocket Kommerce LLP\” is the Authorised Seller on this website for MI Power Bank. Do you recommend to buy it from ?

  29. Vijyes says:

    I am intending to purchase a fake for Rs 300 – a 10400maH one. I am expecting it to have about 3000-4000MaH charge. If it actually turns out to be 3000+mah, I will be in a profit as original Mi costs Rs 520 for 4500mah (5200mah with 90% efficiency). Can you tell me what is the negative of buying fake?? Since you have already purchased it, can you tell me how much approx charge is useable?

  30. Very useful to check my powerbank is original or not? Thanks for sharing!!

  40. Rahul says:

    Is this 20 digit code unique? Because we all got the powerbanks as Diwali gift (100 Power banks. The 20 digit code is same for all of them. Also the code is valid on mi website.

  41. Dave S says:

    Just bought the 10,000 mAh from Amazon seller Feeego (HK). Everything appears to be genuine except for the usb cable which is white although it does not have a usb logo.

    I am unable to verify the product because will not accept the English verification code. Could you please check for me? It\’s 35937 26969 42753 37321.

  42. NJ says:

    Hello guys,
    I have entered the 20 digits but nothing happens. I mean no error or verification message.
    Should I assume my product is fake?
    In case of fake product does it give a message something like \”The product you are checking is NOT Mi\”

  43. Duy says:

    Still chinese character. Isn\’t good 😐

  44. xcx says:

    The product you are checking is
    Mi Power Bank
    This security code has been queried 1 times
    is it original or fake?
