Xiaomi India has launched the Mi USB Fan at Rs. 249. The new Xiaomi accessory will go on sale starting Tuesday at 2pm IST via company’s online store (mi.com/in). The company announced the launch of the Mi USB Fan in a tweet.
The new Mi USB Fan from Xiaomi is likely to be sold from the company’s ‘Lifestyle Items’ section much like the Xiaomi Mi LED Light, which went on sale at Rs. 199 back in June. Interested consumers should note that Mi.com charges shipping on orders below Rs. 500, so you’ll need to pay a Rs. 50 delivery charge if you are thinking of picking up just a single piece of the Mi USB Fan.
The Mi USB Fan comes with a flexible frame and is powered by a standard USB port, which means it can be plugged into any USB charger, a computers’ USB port, or indeed any power bank with a USB port. The company touts that the USB Fan works at just 25.8 decibels and can be paired with Xiaomi’s Power Banks as well.
Xiaomi claims that the Mi USB Fan can be used continuously for up to 20 hours when plugged into a 5000mAh power bank or offer up to 38 hours when plugged with a 10400mAh power bank, and up to 62 hours when plugged into a 16000mAh power bank.
The company is widely expected to launch its next-generation flagship smartphone, the Mi 5, at its October 19 event. The teaser image by the company read “The next generation of new conference” (Bing Translation). Xiaomi may also introduce its next-generation Mi Band at the same event as the wearable is also likely to receive an upgrade finally.
