The perfect summer companions

If you haven’t noticed, Manila has transformed into the surface of the sun. Just the other day the mercury rose past 38 degrees, which is a number which is entirely too high for our liking. If we had a choice we’d stay inside the entire day and crank up our AC/fan up, but that’s not always an option, especially for people going out on long commutes or going on trips.

Enter Xiaomi’s Mi Fan and LED. The former is a nifty little durable fan that works with any powerbank, and consumes just 1 watt of electricity under 5 volts. The body is pretty flexible, and can be bent to face whatever direction you want, thanks to its flexible stem.

The Mi LED lamp does exactly what its name suggests. It’s a handy little LED lamp that uses only 1.2 watts of electricity under 5 volts. The LED lamp can be used through a USB port on notebooks or power banks. What’s nice about the Mi LED is that it was made for Xiaomi’s own powerbanks, as the button on the Mi Powerbank turns the light on and off, perfect when you’re roughing it outdoors or if the power grid fails.

Much like anything made by Xiaomi, both the Mi LED and Mi Fan retail for a paltry RMB 20, or around Php 160.

  1. WHERE CAN I FIND THAT FAN???????????? DESPERATELY NEED THAT. IS THAT LAZADA EXCLUSIVE AGAIN??? Sorry for caps lock xD just carried away by the heat

    1. Knockoffs of the LED lamp are available almost everywhere in metro manila. I saw a street vendor selling these near SM North EDSA.

  2. I don’t get why unbox keeps on posting products from Xiaomi. As if we can actually buy it. It only makes me cringe to buy one though.

    1. may mga nagbebenta naman neto na nagiimport galing ibang bansa. kung hindi mo yun alam di na nila problema yun.

  3. Binago na nila yung title hahaha How can you even beat the heat with using LED light? lols hahaha

  4. just some useless info here, the on/off feature doesn’t just work on xiaomi p.banks, the will work with any powerbank that has an on/off button. just plug to activate, long press the button to turn off, press again to turn on.
