GaN Charger

GaN, aka gallium nitride, is a new type of semiconductor material with high thermal efficiency and power conversion potential compared to conventional chargers. They’re lighter, smaller, and essentially build up heat a lot slower when charging. Xiaomi now has their own under their own brand name, providing 65W of charging via a single USB Type – C port. It retails for RM 119 and is now available.

Mi Smart Speaker

The Mi Smart Speaker retails for RM 209, being a speaker that’s ideal for AIoT homes thanks to Google Assistant supported with LED lights and rings to highlight notifications and commands. It has a decent 63.5mm sound driver in small, winter melon form factor. We look forward to reviewing this affordable speaker system really soon! We’re painfully curious about its sound quality from such a size and price point!
