Eventually buyers need to scratch the authentication label which is provided there on the Mi Power banks and enter the 20-digit security code on Xiaomi’s website - https://www.mi.com/verify/#secur_en. If the code matches that means the power bank is genuine and if the code doesn't matches that means the power banks if fake. Isn't this a great step to attack and overcome the counterfeit Power banks?
"Manu kumar Jain, however, asserted that the method will not be of much help to buyers purchasing the device from third-party online sellers But will surely help them to know wheter they have purchased an original or fake Mi Power bank, In that case, buyers will have to return the Power Bank to the seller if it doesn’t match the verification code on Xiaomi’s website."
