Xiaomi's power banks are made with high quality components that are source from other well known and reputable electronic companies such as LG, Panasonic, and Samsung. Each of their power banks are made with nine layers of world-class circuit chip protection that are built by Texas Instruments and Monolithic Power Systems. These protections layers are chips that control the power bank's discharging, charging, and output activities to prevent the power bank from overcharging and also from high temperatures. The power bank is also intelligent enough to stop power flowing if it notices that the cable is plugged in the wrong direction.
