Summer is here! The weather is nice and sunny, the days are longer, you can finally slow down and relax. Warm evenings, cold drinks, and… mosquitoes. Dozens of them, attacking from every direction. Well, sadly this is how usually chilling time in the evening looks like. But don’t worry, there is a new invention you can try for that – Xiaomi Mijia Mosquito Repellent. Let’s check if it’s worth the hassle.
Xiaomi Mijia Mosquito Repellent Design
The design is pretty simple, yet quite sleek and attractive. Little white box with rounded corners, at first glance I wouldn’t guess it’s a mosquito repellant. Looks more like a Bluetooth speaker or electric air freshener. It’s compact and portable so you can use it anywhere you want.
The top of the box is slightly darker with a round element slightly elevated to create cavities to release the repelling substance. The box contains Xiaomi Mijia Mosquito Repellent, repellent cartridge, two AA batteries, and user manual in Chinese.
The device is very convenient and simple in use. The top lid opens with ease. Underneath you can find the repellant cartridge and the mentioned batteries. There is also a fan below it, which helps to release the repelling substance. With the cartridge inserted, you are ready to go. Now just click the ON/OFF button and enjoy your evening. According to the producer, the cartridge should suffice for around 90 days of use (in reality, depending on usage it’s between 75-90 days).
Xiaomi Mijia Mosquito Repellent Features and performance
Due to the small size (9.65 x 9.65 x 5.27 cm / 3.8 x 3.8 x 2.07 inches), the Mijia Repellant works best in rooms up to 28 m3. Although this is not a very big area, the effectiveness does not decrease over time. And what’s more, it works not only for mosquitoes but for other bugs (like moths and flies) as well! And we can confirm that’s true. It’s eco-friendly and odorless, so you don’t have to inhale this weird odor that most of the repellants have. Also, the device does not produce any noise, so you won’t hear any buzzing at night.
To make your life even easier, Xiaomi Mijia Repellant has a small light indicator just above the ON/OFF button, which shows you the status of the device.
- White LED light (Constant): The device is working properly
- White LED light (Flashing): The device is now in timing mode
- Orange LED light (Flashing): The cartridge is insufficient (replace the cartridge )
- Blue LED light (Flashing): Bluetooth mode
Now you are wondering what the timing mode is? Well, double click on the button enables timing mode, which means that the device starts a cycle wherein every 24 hours it works for 10 hours. Just to note, this is how the 90 days of use is calculated (90 days in timing mode).
There are two versions of the device, basic and smart. With basic you have to click the ON/OFF button (what an effort!), smart can connect via Bluetooth to your phone and can be managed in Mija Home app.
If you are interested in purchasing Xiaomi Mijia Mosquito Repellent, you can grab it on Gearbest for the lowest price of $9.99 for the basic version or $14.99 for the smart version.
Considering that it works as promised, for this ridiculous price it’s definitely a good purchase. The only drawback that we have to mention since it’s not that popular yet, it might be hard to find new cartridges, but we assume you buy everything online so it should not be a big issue.
