Xiaomi is not a well known brand in the West but it is quite a popular brand in the East especially in its home country, China. To many outside China, Xiaomi is known as a smartphone maker but not many know that they manufacture a whole lot of other products ranging from dashboard cameras to smart home kits to smart plant monitors to even smart air filters. Adding to Xiaomi’s wide repertoire of products is the Xiaomi Portable Mosquito Repeller.
To those who are unfortunately living in regions where the pesky mosquito breed and thrive, it is a nuisance at best and it can threaten your life at worst. It is the carrier for mosquito borne diseases like dengue and the dreaded Zika virus. If you plan to spend a lot of time outdoors in such regions, it is best that you bring along some protection. The Xiaomi Portable Mosquito Repeller is a small plastic disk that is about 1.8 inches in diameter.
To use it, you have to insert a mosquito mat into the device and power it up by connecting it to a USB power source like a portable power bank. Although the device is made from plastic, the material is designed to be heat resistant and therefore perfectly safe.
Electrical mosquito repellers that use mats are quite common in many Asian countries. It is odorless and much safer than burning mosquito coils. However, till now, such electrical repellers are not portable as they need to be powered by a wall outlet. The Xiaomi Portable Mosquito Repeller is just a simple updated version that is USB powered but for those who dislike using sprays or patches that may use chemicals and have strong odors, it is a good alternative. A 10,000 mAh power bank can power the mosquito repeller for up to 14 hours continuously.
The Xiaomi Portable Mosquito Repeller is brand new from Xiaomi and is now available from GearBest.
