    LOL, by the time you "researched" to buy the perfect Power bank, Mi ones got OOS. :p

    That's why I bought it instantly at full price of Rs 1299 when it came out on Mi's official store. :D
    Now, wait till they restock.

    Actually I am building a pc too. So, much of the money went there. I think it is OOS due to GST and it will come back with increased prices. Is the Amazon link legit?

    Oh my bad. Couldn't really see on mobile browser. But even tho, the product seems legit. Also if its not genuine you can always return it.

    Also Mi USB fan is here: Mi USB Fan - RM - Mi Malaysia
    But looks like it's discontinued now, like they discontinued the mouse pad (good thing I bought 2 of them). You will need to find some 3rd party USB fans now. Like these:
    Amazon.in: usb fans: Electronics

    I ordered two of those from Amazon. Received one today. It is full of fingerprints, oily fingerprints type+the scratch code was scratched. Is there a way to find out when this code was first checked on their site?
    Their customer support number is not working, 1800 103 6286

    The information you have provided is enough to realize that it is used one. For validating, use your product coupon code on mi website(that must be provided with the packet) and check if the counter value is 1. If yes, then it is genuine and new one.
    And again I have a bad feeling that either the product is fake or tampered one.

    Will do and get back to you. I connected my SIII's charger to it for charging, the charger's input is 150-300 VAC 50-60HZ 0.15 A,output- 5.0v=1.0A. I kept it on this charger for more than an hour but still we are stuck on the second led light.

    It has been checked 5 times already. Amazon told me to take this matter with Mi as they sell new products only. I kept my SIII's charger connected to it for like 2 hours+ but it didn't charge even 1 level. Mi's cc number is not working. I have cancelled the other order from Amazon.

    Return it immediately. How come cloudtail is selling this type product? Better to buy from official sites (always).

    How much time does it take to move from 25-50% led 2 to 50-75% led 3? S3's charger charged it for about an hour and it has already been about 30 minutes with the s7 one and we are still stuck.

    Check their policy, they have clearly mentioned amazon fulfilled products can be returned and replaced.

    They are saying fingerprints on device & scratched code does not come under the purview of return. Man they didn't even pack it properly, just a normal polybag without any air bubble cover.

    Tell them you payed for New piece not used. Tell them to provide you a genuine unused unopened piece if not refund your money.
