ZMI is one of Xiaomi’s ecosystem companies, and it is popular for making professional power banks. Xiaomi also sells power banks directly, and they’re in extremely high demand due to consistent quality, features, and affordable price.

Now, the brand is trying to do something new — a power bank that’ll also double up as a body or hand warmer more precisely. So, the power bank has a capacity of 5000mAh, enough for an iPhone once. If you’re living in the temperate or tundra region, the climate gets extremely cold during the winters. The gadget can also be used as a hand warmer.

It’s equipped with a PTC self-limiting temperature heating technology that’s patented and safe. The power bank consists of PID constant temperature control for precise control of the heating element. It can go up to 52-degrees Celsius, which is safe and comfortable for the human body.

The ZMI Power Bank can adjust the temperature according to your liking and deliver two to four hours of heating in one go. It has an LED light that can be used as a torch for convenience, and it can charge all gadgets like an ordinary portable charger.

For now, the sale is limited to Mainland China, and it costs CNY 89 (US$ 13.5).
