We study phenomenological aspects of the bino-wino co-annihilation scenario in high-scale supersymmetry breaking models. High-scale SUSY breaking scenarios are considered to be promising possibility after the discovery of the Higgs boson with a mass around 126 GeV. In this paper, we discuss the bino lightest supersymmetric particle (LSP) accompanied by the at most around 30 GeV heavier wino. With the suitable mass splitting between the bino and the wino, the bino LSP has the correct relic abundance of dark matter. For the smaller mass splitting, the late-time decay of the gravitino can provide the correct abundance of the bino dark matter. It is extremely challenging to find signals from the bino dark matter in direct and indirect detections. By utilizing multi-jets plus missing transverse momentum events at the LHC, we can constraint the gluino mass and thus probe the bino-wino co-annihilation scenario indirectly. The collider experiment, however, can not search the bino dark matter directly. In this paper, we suggest the direct probe of the bino dark matter. We show that the bino dark matter leaves imprints on the small-scale matter power spectrum when the bino dark matter is produced by the decay of the gravitino. The non-thermal bino dark matter behaves as mixed (cold+warm) dark matter.
