I broke the habit of a (flashaholic) lifetime by buying two of the 10000mAh power banks from GearBest this morning – without waiting for HKJ’s seal of approval. The genuine Xiamoi devices seem to have a good reputation, so hopefully if a review does ever appear, this will be confirmed.

Where is the best place to buy authentic Xiaomi products for close to MSRP?

I previously the 10,000 mah from banggood for $12 (MSRP $10.58), but they haven’t had the 20,000 mah for less than $35 (MSRP $22.84).

Yeah, ever since people started buying these Xiaomi power banks in huge quantities they knew they could charge a much higher price. Just look how many they have sold, I think the 10,000 version sold over a hundred thousand units in BG, imagine if they “only” made $3 for selling each at the current price, it’s just insane.

I tried getting them cheaper but it seems like the only way to buy MSRP is directly from their chinese store. This is one of the very few non-collectable products to ever sold at much higher price than msrp.

Lowest price for the 20Ah model is 32.99 on GB and 34.99 on BG, and it was 29.99 the day it released. 11.99 for the 10Ah version and now its more than 14.99

Yeah, I was in contact with a dubios Worker from BG phone and stuff department, he made a very special Price…I told him that 34.79$ is no good deal and that GB is selling them cheaper but he found some bad excuses why this is still a deal…

In my eyes 30$ for the 20000 would be okay..5$ per cell
