Taking a look at a ZMI Powerplug Turbo 45W USB Type-C PD Wall Charger (AD03Z) sent to me by ZMI USA for this video. They like what I'm doing on the channel and contacted me with an offer to send me something to review...
→ Conclusion
This ZMI Powerplug Turbo 45W USB Type-C PD Wall Charger achieves and exceeds the specifications on the box. They are exceeded by a bit, I have to say, with impressive numbers! Another plus is the absence of power use in standby. It’s a nice PD charger that delivers all of the power it promises in the specs and more! I hope this will be available soon with an EU plug instead of a US one.

This charger is nearly identical to the one that Gearbest supplied with my Xiaomi notebook pro.
the ZMi logo looks almost identical as well.
The usb placement is identical, the looks are the same, exluding the logo on the side, which the Xiaomi doesn't have.

Also the one I have has 65W output.

Do you know whether these brands are related, or even the same?

They are definitely related.
As far as I know ZMI is a sub-brand of Xiaomi, they also make all the Xiaomi powerbanks next to the ones they sell under their own brand.
I'm hoping @kanem0chi or @Kenzi can shed some more light on it...

It's a bit more complicated. Zimi (note the "i") is a manufacturer from China that sells power adapters, LED lights etc under the ZMI brand name and also manufactures for Xiaomi under the Mi brand name.

ZMI USA is an American company that is allowed to use the ZMI brandname and resells Zimi products for the US / EU market. They don't manufacture anything but rebrand it with their version of the ZMI logo.

(this is about the same structure as with Yi, Yi USA and Xiaoyi)

It is a bit confusing the difference ZMI and ZIMI, but check this page: https://www.zmiusa.com/pages/about-us
