We should admit that Xiaomi power bank has changed the power bank industry by introducing their 10400mAh power bank for an unbelievably cheap price and nice quality. Before the Xiaomi’s power bank, accessory makers have been charging outrageous amount of money for good quality power banks which doesn’t explode while charging your devices.
Now Huawei has came up with a battery bank which looks almost same as the Xiaomi 10400mAh battery bank which was selling for mere $20 from international online retailers and lot lesser when purchased from Xiaomi directly. Huawei power bank has 13000mAh capacity and has 2 USB power outputs so you could charge 2 devices at once.
As you can see on above pictures, Huawei battery bank looks very identical to the Xiaomi’s version and that’s not a bad thing for consumers because both battery banks features an aluminium shell.
Eventhough this product isn’t officially announced yet, some Chinese retail web sites has them for sale around $45. Here’s a spec sheet taken from a online retailer,

Huawei doesn’t mention what brand batteries are inside but we guess Huawei might be using same LG,Samsung 18650 batteries found inside the Xiaomi’s battery bank. Official price of Huawei 13000mAh battery bank isn’t confirmed yet but the source of leak says that the price will be around $26 in China which isn’t really a bad deal. Official release date is also not available at this time but considering that Huawei already made the retail package as you can see on the first picture, release date won’t be very far.
