It is simple that all what you would get is the imported model, manufactured in china. Now please do not frown as Xiaomi is a company based on China itself! So no big deal, what it matters is whether it is original or not, whose proof I am going to provide you shortly and till then read on.
Head up to your address bar and after entering to ebay.in search with the phrase ‘Original Xiaomi power bank 16000 mAh’. You can get some result as follows:
Navigate to the right top corner and sort it by ‘Price + Shipping: lowest first’. Now you would be getting the list of powerbanks listed according to the ascending order of their price. You might be wondering what trick it involves as it is much easy and was requiring hardly anything to tell about. But to be honest, exactly this point is very crucial, that is selecting the proper power bank from the list. So let’s look closely and find what exactly the product page is filled with. We take the very first one here from the search result (In fact the I have bought from the very same seller in Ebay).
Here, we are enough lucky to get a seller having 8552 feedbacks and that too with 96.8 % positivity! Great. Now just have a quick check with the followings that whether the description of the powerbank proclaims that it is 100 % genuine. Secondly whether it is having a new condition. You must probably be accustomed with these checking if you have some acquaintance with Ebay. Now comes to the price, and whatever be the price, here it is 1612 INR, you can get upto 300 INR off while purchasing for the first time with the Ebay. Bingo!We have got the Genuine Xiaomi Power Bank just at 1312 INR even lower than the MRP [1399 INR] when all others are not getting it even after waiting with those Mi flash sales!
So by now you have got the place from where to buy, but still you may think whether the power bank you are going to buy is original or not. To be saved from such a dilemma, it was required to check whether the description in product page clearly mentions ‘100% Original Xiaomi Power Bank’, this will ensure that if (chances are pretty much low) some dispute arises, you will get a full refund from Ebay by their Ebay guarantee. Now, That’s not all, to further ensure the genuineness, you should always go for a trusted seller (better if you see ‘Top Rated Seller’ in the seller’s description).
Now, comes the final proof of how I could manage to get to know the model that I bought, even after not going via Mi flash sale, that it was genuine. After you receive the power bank, you will get an anti fake label, by scratching which, you can have a very unique 20 digit serial number associated to your original xiaomi power bank. Head back to this site, and enter the 20 digit code. Now, not only the result of the search must say that the product is an original one, but it should also say that this 20 digit code is searched for the very first time. These to double checks will make certain that the power bank in your hand is absolutely Original Xiaomi Mi power bank.
