Xiaomi Portable Mosquito Repeller: Review
In the world where companies are on an interesting gadget launching spree, Xiaomi’s Portable Mosquito Repeller stands out. It is quite interesting and at the same time has a usefulness quotient. The Repeller was launched under Xiaomi’s MiJia – which when literally translated from Mandarin, means ‘Smart Home’. Although, this really cool portable mosquito repeller is only available for sale in China for now.
This device can put an end to people using mosquito repellent creams and sprays. It is pretty handy when it comes to putting an end to annoyance caused by mosquitoes. The Repeller works when attached to power banks which means, it will not take much time to become popular among campers and trekkers. Although, it seems like a good idea to use within the house as well.
The Mosquito Repeller according to the tests done by Xiaomi can last for upto 14 hours when connected with an Mi Power Bank 10000mAh, for up to 15 hours when connected with an Mi Power Bank Pro 10000 mAh and for upto 28 hours when connected with an Mi Power Bank 20000mAh.
The best part about this portable mosquito repeller is that it weighs only 25 grams and its diameter measures 4.6 centimeters. Its dimensions show that it is both lightweight and tiny, which means it can be carried around easily. The heating material within the device is made with stainless steel and the cover is made with a heat resistant material – fiber glass insulation as well as PTC thermistors.
The design of the repeller is pretty minimal and it comes in a variety of colours, one of which is white.
Although, to use this Mosquito Repeller, mosquito mats are a must. Simply twist the device 90-degrees and insert a mat within. The device will then glow and after plugging the Mosquito Repeller into a Power Bank, it’ll work its magic. Xiaomi at the time of its launch in China, priced it at about $4, which comes up to only about INR 270 , but on the downside they haven’t set a release date for India as of now.
Apart from this Portable Mosquito Repeller, Xiaomi has recently launched an Electric Folding Bike called the Qicycle. Watch this space for more!
