1. Mi 20000mAH Power Bank
The Xiaomi Mi A3 is powered with a 4030 mAh battery, and it should easily last you a day (and more). But when the charge runs out, it only makes sense to top it up as soon as possible.
The 20000mAh Mi Power Bank 2i is a good buy for the Quick Charge 3.0 enabled Mi A3. It supports 18W fast charging and allows charging two devices simultaneously. And at the same time, charging the power bank itself is a quick affair as it gets wrapped up in around 5 hours, thanks to the two-way fast charging.
The 20000mAh power bank should fully charge the 4030mAh battery laden Mi A3 thrice, which I'd say is pretty decent.
Apart from that, the device has a slim and pocketable build, which makes it easy to carry it. Though the 20000mAh power bank is available in black, the smaller variant is available in a fierce red. Perfect for the white Mi A3, I'd say.
Reviews have been amazing for this power bank and boast of a 4.2-star rating out of 5 on Amazon. It's durable and works as advertised.
To add to it, it also features a Low Power mode to fuel your low-power Bluetooth devices.
Yep, the 3.5mm headphone jack is back and how! If you are looking for quality but affordable earphones to go with it, you can give the boAt BassHeads 162 a shot. These are priced at around Rs 500 and deliver good sound quality for its price. Plus, these earphones' bass is on the higher side.
The boAt BassHeads 162 has seen more than 1,500 reviews at the time of writing and a majority of these lean towards the positive side, with users speaking highly of its sound quality.
However, boAt earphones tend to show signs of wear and tear if you're not careful with them. Hence, we'd recommend you to get an earphone pouch to protect them.
These wireless earphones with flexible neckband design come with an inline remote. Also, they have 6 hours of playtime.
3. Fortify Riggear Xudd Transparent Case
You'll find reinforced corners in this one as well as a little bit of extra protection for the camera module.
Overall, the Fortify transparent case is a beautiful one with the right balance of beauty and bulk. And users also have been praising this case, as well as the others for its build, looks, and durability.
However, if you are into slim cases and covers, you can check out the one by Frivety Slim Case. It maintains the sleek profile of the phone and does its bit to save it from dings and scratches.
The tiny Amazon Basics USB Type-C to USB 3.1 converter takes up around 3A of power and is quick. This is a must-have phone accessory if you frequently transfer files to and fro from your PC to phone or vice versa. All you have to do is plug the USB Type-C head to your phone, and the other end to your a USB drive, give the necessary permission and get going. Neat, right?
This tiny accessory works as advertised as has been echoed by many users. It has managed to rake in a rating of 4.4 stars out of 5.
Xiaomi's Selfie Stick Tripod is gold for you if you're big on clicking selfies and photos. This cool selfie stick also doubles up as a neat tripod and comes in handy for taking group photos. And all this is beautifully wrapped up by nifty Bluetooth-enabled remote.
Other than that, the phone mount rotates 360° and is adjustable without any fuss. The best thing about this accessory is that everything folds back into a compact size. And you can easily toss it in your backpack to be taken out again when you need it next.
We have been using this product for quite some time, and it has worked beautifully for us. We can't say that it's made of the strongest of material, but it gets the job done.
Besides, it doesn't have one of those cheap-plastic looks that are usually associated with products at this price range.
6. Magideal Ring Light
Since the Mi A3 doesn't have a front flash, some of your selfies may turn out to be a tad darker than anticipated. Well, there's the option of screen flash, but then we all know how the results can be disappointing sometimes. In such cases, the best option is to invest in a ring selfie light.
The Magideal Ring Light is an easy-to-use selfie light. It clips to the top of your phone, and you can use it both for your selfies and normal photos. It provides a soft glow to the object. Furthermore, you can also switch between three brightness settings.
The Magideal Ring Light charges via micro USB cable and hence removes the hassle of replacing the battery every few months.
We took this device out for a run, and well, it works quite as expected. I especially liked the soft rings it creates in the irises.
