Hello guys, does anyone know of any power bank and cable combination which can trigger the Mi Turbo Charge? I know about some QC4.0 power banks but Mi Turbo Charge seems to be very dependent on the cable+charger combination, even my newly bought Xiaomi Mi Power Bank 3 Pro 20000 mAh 45W seems incompatible.

I have a Xiaomi 18w PowerBank 3 but it only has fast charging with USB A to USB Type C, I am waiting for a cable with both Type C outputs to see if it charges like this since the PowerBank has a Type C input and the seller told me that if it accepted PD charger

I looked further into this, there is an extra pin on the charger side, but I don't think it makes a difference, because I tried my older USB-C cables (with no extra pin) with the original charger and it still showed Mi Turbo Charge. So I guess it is the charger that matters and not the cable.

But if it's 18W, and our charger is 33w for full turbo charging...? The math doesn't add up..

I did a test with the stock cable vs UGREEN and there is 1 A of difference.

Well I gave my opinion and the device only accepts up to 30W, not 33W
That's right.
And the charger is 33w, which is what I wrote.

I would be curious if those power banks with 33w charge just as fast as the charger... Would love to hear if anyone uses something like this.

The anker powercore speed is capable of fast charging the F2.
It is " limited" to QC3 so it's not at the absolute max speed the phone could handle.
