How To Charge Mi Band 4 Without Removing Strap? Easy DIY Guide!!!

Mi Band 4 has an amazing battery life but still, we have to charge it when it drains after 2-3 weeks of charging.

The main flaw of charging Mi Band 4 is that we have to remove the Mi Band capsule from the strap and then connect it to the default charger.

I know removing the band from the strap is not pleasant!

Mi Band straps are so tight that it feels like either the Mi Band or the strap will break.

Don’t worry! Today, I have mentioned 3 ways to charge Mi Band 4 without removing the strap. Stay tuned and read the full post. First, let me tell you…

How you can charge Mi Band 4 without removing the strap?

In the Mi Band 3 and lower versions, the charging pins are positioned at bottom of tracker so we have to remove the strap.

But in Mi Band 4, the charging pins are at the back side of the tracker, so we can access them and charge the band without removing the strap.
