Does the Xiaomi Mi Power Bank Pro 10.000 mAh work with a Lumia 950 XL?

Question: Does the Xiaomi Mi Power Bank Pro 10.000 mAh work with a Lumia 950 XL?

I've read it won't charge some USB Type-C phones.
There's an article about it on Android Central:
http://www.androidcentral.com/xiaomis-latest-10000mah-power-bank-offers-usb-type-c-22
It's cheap and basically the first type-C charger I've seen in my country, so it could be a good buy.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

I recently purchased a power bank from Mi (Mi Power Bank - Mi India) which has a 3.1A output for fast charging. I was wondering if this is safe to use with Lumia 1520 as the official Nokia fast usb charger outputs only 1.5A. The power bank outputs almost twice as much, so a bit skeptical about using it.
Is it safe to use it?

Answer:16000 mah power bank with Lumia 1520

NO! YOUR LUMIA 1520 WILL EXPLODE! AND YOU'LL BE BURNT UP IN THE EXPLOSION!

I'm thinking of buying the Sony CP F5 5000 mAh power bank. It's (a lot) cheaper than the ones Microsoft/Nokia sells here in Brazil and has comparatively more capacity. In theory, it can charge my Lumia 920 more than two times. Still, I'm afraid it may not be compatible with my phone, since it's from another manufacturer. Does anyone have one of these chargers and know if it works with Lumia phones?
Thanks a lot.

Answer:Yoga 3 Pro / UNIFUN power bank

Good day and welcome to the community.
 
The Yoga 3 Pro looks for 20V input, 4x what that power bank can output. Also, the proprietary cable has extra contacts.
 
There may be power banks that can supply the proper voltage, but I think it unlikely that one has the proprietary receptacle configuration to match the cable.

USB Keyboard and mouse cannot be used.
I'm not sure what version of WP8.1 is running on your 535, but if it says Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2, then you can pair a Bluetooth keyboard (no mouse support at this time). I have the 640 with Update 2, and it is compatible with a Bluetooth keyboard.

What power bank? Make and model or link to site.What charger are you using to charge it? Came with charger? Using phone charger? Which one? Did you try charging it with another charger? Another USB cord?Is it new? Did it ever work? Is it under warranty?Sounds are not normal for portable battery chargers since there are no moving parts. These are Lithium batteries and if you are getting noises or it is getting more than quite warm, seek professional advice or exchange it under warranty if possible. You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Hello to Everybody
I'm a business analyst in a bank and my problem is that the scanner devices on our mapples don't work on the local side within our banking application which runs on i.e 11 browser where as scanners on pc work successfully. That problem occurs when we update our RDP connection from RDP 8.0 to RDP 8.1 in Windows 8.1.
when we stay In RDP 8.0, Everything is ok and scanner selection Windows api Works and Scanner Works but In RDP 8.1, Windows api doesn't come to screen and scanner doesn't work. so, data communication between local side and server side has lost.
I tried to disable WIA from Admin Panel but it didn't work. What is reason for the scanners don't work and how can we solve this scanner working problem?
If you help me for this issue, I will be very glad. Thank you for your all support.
Sincerely

Answer:Our scanners in bank doesnt work, please help !!!

If this started with a specific update like RDP 8.0 to 8.1 start there. When I start RDP there is a Option selection, lower left. When you click on it there is a tab "Local Resources". In there you have to allow scanner as it is not permitted by default. Not exactly sure what you would pick. If scanner is set on a constant port you could allow port. Go in Devices and right click to see properties. One tab will be ports.

Hello,

This problem is from a friend of mine but he doesn't has a computer now. Yesterday he was charging his powerbank through his Laptop (Asus bought 3 months ago) USB port. After a while the computer was shutdown and won't turn on, even when it's plugged through its power adapter.

Is there any solution to this?
Thanks!
 

Answer:Laptop wont turn on after charging power bank

Hi and welcome to TSG.

As annoying as it can be to have to do it, your best option if it appears totally dead is to RMA the laptop if it is only 3 months old. Fiddling about with it too much trying to diagnose the problem could end up invalidating any warranty your friend has.

The only simple checks I would do are to try and power it up with and without the power cord connected.
Then remove the battery (assuming it is a removable one) and try it again with the power adapter attached.

It could be a problem with the laptop or that the power brick has just failed, it happens occasionally.

Hello guys, this would be my short review of Etekcity Wingman external battery I use with y2p. As you know, the y2p battery performance is a little disappointing for a Haswell ultrabook (at least for some), so it's a good idea to have some additional external battery beforehand. After some research I found the interesting candidate, the 16.000 mAh external battery manufactured somewhere in chinese factory (Shenzen?) and then being sold under many different brands (I found at least 5 of them on Amazon). I bought the Etekcity Wingman, as it was the cheapest, for 69$ No links here, but you will find it easily. It has a classy aluminium shell, very good overall build quality, features 5V USB output and additional 12, 16 and 19V outputs with many different plugs. There is no rectangular Lenovo Yoga tip, but in the package you can find the Lenovo X1 big circular plug. So you need an additional converter Cable Adapter from Lenovo, part no. 0B47046 and voila, everything fits. This external battery can provide up to 19V and as you are aware, y2p needs 20V. But this is not a problem, it's only 5% difference and nothing to be worry about. As to the amperage, the battery can provide max 3A at 19V and y2p original power adapter is rated at 3.25A - but this is not a problem either, as during my actual measurements I never saw the current more than 3A (more about it later). 16.000 mAh for li-po cells 3,7V gives about 59Wh of power capacity and this is important. The internal ... Read more

Answer:Yoga 2 Pro, Etekcity 16Ah power bank and some additional measurements

I did another real test, so no estimating here: I unplugged y2p and waited till it's charge went down to 10%.Then I switched it off and started charging from external Wingman battery. It took exactly 2 hours and finally Wingman switched off (discharged completely). I turned y2p on and it was 93% charged. So the real and ready to be used capacity of Etekcity Wingman 16.000 mAh external battery is 83% of original Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro battery capacity. Wingman gives to our laptop +83% longer time on battery.

If you have a credit card with BofA you should be familiar with Shopsafe, a protective feature that gives you a temporary credit card number for a limited amount that can be used for online purchases to make sure that an online seller doesn't make unauthorized transactions.

To get to Shopsafe you log into your account on BofA's website and click on a little button that opens a window with several features that include Shopsafe. You click on Shopsafe and you get another window opening that allows you to get the temporary credit card number issued.

That's where the problem is. When I do that it instead sends me back to the log in screen where I end up in a loop.

Here's some history. I was given this computer in June by my son-in-law with a clean install of Windows 7 Professional 64 bit with IE9 64 bit edition.

From then on everything I did on the computer was from scratch.

Between June 19 and August 16 I successfully used Shopsafe 6 times. Worked fine just as it had always worked on my old computer.

After that I started having the loop effect. BofA's techs were unable to come up with an answer so their solution, use a different browser.

Well, Shopsafe works fine with Google Chrome but I prefer using IE9.

Shopsafe also works fine with my old Windows Vista - IE9 computer. But that's in another room, hooked up to my TV so not real convenient to go in there and generate credit card numbers.

Comments?

I could not get IE9 to login to the Compass Bank or Chase websites. It ends up that the setting to not allow encrypted web pages to be written to disk was the issue. In IE8 and earlier this was not a problem (and should not be a problem in IE9), but in IE9 they must be handling the rendering of SSL pages differently and that option prevents the rendering of many SSL pages. Anyway, I am sure MS has already figured this out and will sliently repair it in a future update. Until then, you have to set policy to allow writes of encryped pages to disk.

"Save encrypted pages to disk" is the default setting anyway, so unless you've been "meddling" with the defaults you shouldn't have any problem with secure sites.

Hi to all.

I have a new G50-T with a Vista Ultimate and big problem with this useful tool (TrueSite Access Manager - option to log into web sites or acces password protected programs with a fingerprint).
Before I had an older Toshiba Notebook and had no problem with this tool. Right now I can enrol fingerprints, can log into windows with a finger print, but can't manage to save any passwords.
The help file said that a pop-up window should come up once a password - field is filled in on a program (like Firefox), but nothing happens - I've tried everything: checking, uncheking finger enrollment in password bank, even uninstalled antyvirus soft.
I can't reinstall the program because it's pre installed together with windows and I dont have the setup files.
Nothing seems to help and I have no idea what to do now.

Anyone has any ideas or a solution?

Answer:Qosmio G50-10T - Password Bank with fingerprint authorization doesnt work

Wait a moment. Do you have this problem with Firefox only? have you may be updated Firefox to the latest version?

I have a MacBook running on Mac OS X 10.5.8 and for about a week, I have no longer been able to connect to my gmail account and other sites - pretty much any site that requires logging in.

These sites work on my PC, just not on my Mac.

I have tried restarting my computer, flushing DNS, emptying the cache, etc. I've cleaned out junk files, deleted cookies, run multiple virus scans. Nothing seems to be wrong with the computer, and the internet connection appears normal. It's extremely frustrating!! I feel like certain sites are being blocked from loading, but I haven't changed anything in my settings.

Please help!

Hi guys!
I'm currently a Lumia 640 LTE user. I'm very satisfied with this unit's performance and very impressed with windows 10 mobile despite it's occasional hiccups and persisting bugs, especially after coming from windows phone 8.1 with the Cherry Mobile Alpha Luxe. An acquaintance of mine is selling his Xiaomi Mi4 at an affordable price and although I despise the brand because of it's poor customer support (based on my personal experience with the Mipad), I'm thinking of buying it just to try out W10M on a premium hardware. My concern, however is that I am not so sure if the version of the W10M ROM available for the Mi4 is the old one or is it constantly updated and still updatable to current builds. Can anybody please shed some light on this? Thanks!

Answer:What is the latest build available for the Xiaomi mi4 on windows 10 mobile rom?

I have recently replace my 640 LTE with a Mi4 (the cheapest LTE versin, with 2Gb RAM) and goes much better, I Updated it to the last insider version in the fast ring and I'm happy with it.
Just one thing, only LTE versions of Mi4 had windows 10 ROM

Answer:Is there a way to install Windows 10 on Android devices like One Plus Two or Xiaomi Mi4?

Not even close! It's a whole world in terms of OS's! What MSFT did is create a somewhat called launcher (ROM) for the Mi4 (Xiaomi) but it's only tested from the inside (Privately)
So you better grab a Windows launcher in the Play store! Or you could search (If you are lucky) a torrent of the ROM and download it (If available) flash your Android phone and we'll... You got it!

Answer:Microsoft is providing select Xiaomi users with a ROM to put Windows 10 on their Android smartphones

And who knows, perhaps this sort of thing could catch on to the point where handsets are sold as barebones devices that allow users to select the OS of their choice during the setup processClick to expand...

If you would have said that a year ago I would have laughed it off but not it seems like that might really be the way of the future.

There hasn't been any real innovation in the smartphone segment for the last few years, interchangeable parts on smartphones may very well be the way of the future, there just doesn't seem to be anyway to improve on what's already here without some drastic improvement like upgradability.

As far as making Windows 10 free to android users seems like a very smart move on Microsoft's part. There are currently more android phones in peoples pockets than any other smartphone. Making their OS free to them is a very easy way to get their OS in everyone's pocket.

I pressed it back and it worked fine that day. But the next day I tried to turn on and the battery LED blinked three times slowly in amber and the laptop wouldn't turn on.What I tried: checked the power adapter, and it reads 20V fine. Checked with aanother adapter at Fry's just to make sure with the same result.2. I opened and checked power connector, and 20V goes out of it too

Answer:U310 no power. Power adapter and connector seem to work fine.

Hey guys, needing some help. My Nokia Lumia 925 wont power on. I connect it to the charger and the start icon is lit up and stays lit, no flashing or anything. I looked around and i've seen that by soft resetting or even hard resetting it it should fix it. However this hasn't helped at all. No reaction from the phone at all. I've also tried to connect it to my computer to try the Nokia Software Recovery Tool, but it doesn't connect to the PC either and no change on the phone at all.
Side note: It was dropped in water for about two seconds, but i have let it all dry first. Could this be the problem?
Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks!

Answer:Lumia 925 Won't Power On

Yes, water is probably the problem, try to let it dry out more. Then try soft reset again to check if it is solved.

Answer:Why won't my Lumia 630 power up?

Dowlnoad the Windows Phone Recovery Tool and check if it can still detect the phone, if it can go through the process, but keep in mind that this will wipe all data from your phone.
Alternatively, you can try soft resetting or hard resetting the phone (button combinations) to check if that helps.
If all of that doesn't help then the problem is most likely due to faulty hardware

I'm so loving my phone since the day I bought it but NOT today. Hmmpf.
Whenever something goes near the power button, even without actually pressing on the button, it will either switch the screen on/off or goes directly to the power off pull down page.
And when I turn it off it will automatically switch on by itself (i'm just doing the normal power off not the soft restart).
Plus yes I already did the soft lock. Nothing happened. Still got the same problem. Don't know if it's a hardware problem but the power button looks and feels to be ok. It's not like it got stuck or something; it's still bouncing back.

Its screen is fully in black, but when I press the camera button for a long time, it give me respond that we get when we turn on our Lumia. But that is just the respond, nothing appear on the screen. It won't turn on no matter how many time already I press on the switch on button. What can I do to turn it on and what's wrong exactly? Before this happen, I got problem with my Whatsapp. The problem is, I don't see chats that I sent appear on the chat box and apparently my friends also do not get the chat that I send. Its already a few times already that I sent my chats but then it went disappear. This happen to my Lumia a lot recently. FYI, my phone's storage already reach its limit. Can it have anything to do with that?

Answer:My Lumia 625's can't be turned on even if it still got a lot of remaining power.

I'm sure that the lack of storage is a factor. Let's see if you can get it to boot up so you can move or uninstall some of the stored info.
Press the down volume and the power button at the same time. (Make sure you are plugged into the power). Hold these two down for at least 15 seconds or until you feel the second vibration. Release both and see if it will boot up normally. If so, go to your apps and see what you no longer need and uninstall.
If this does not work, I'm afraid that you will have to use the Lumia Software Recover tool and reload your OS. You will loose your data and pictures unless you have backed them up. If you have to do this step, do not reload the saved backup, this will only bring you back to a lack of storage problem you have now. Choose not to reload and then finish setting up your phone. The Windows Phone store will have the apps that you own and you can decide which ones to reinstall.
Once you do this, I highly encourage you to use Onedrive or Dropbox to automatically upload your pictures and personal files.
Good luck and let us know if you still need help.

Has anyone else experienced random power failures lately on the 950/950xl? Ever since the last month it's gotten particularly bad, worse this last week. 18 times the phone turned off yesterday. Of those 18, 7 times it rebooted, 11 times I had to do battery pull. Today phone has done this 6 times. Hard reset didn't solve issue. It seems to happen most at night, 90% it's when sliding up to unlock screen. Phone has no physical or liquid damage. If you've experienced similar issues let me know so we can get this resolved.

Answer:Lumia 950xl power failures.

No, none. Sounds like you need to get yours repaired or replaced.
There was of course a firmware update out today and those can sometimes fix low level issues, but still sounds like faulty hardware to me.
