Xiaomi Products You Should Own: Best Of 2020

Best place to buy Xiaomi products:

XIAOMI MC STORE

Rating: 5/5 | Feedback score: 98% positive | Best known for: Redmi Smartphones

>> Visit store <<

Xiaomi is often dubbed as Apple of China. While I do not necessarily agree with this statement (Xiaomi products are much more reasonably priced), there is some merit to it.

Whether you are looking for new smartphone, a new portable speaker for the beach trips, or a new fabric shaver for home – Xiaomi has it all. They have shipped 126 million smartphones in 2020 alone, and smartphones are not their sole bread and butter.

Xiaomi is, as they call it, an ecosystem. Any startup can join their incubator – which is the reason that is Xiaomi is the most versatile brand that I have seen yet. The project gets vetted, if accepted – it gets funding (through the VC program or crowdfunding), and Xiaomi gets to put a label on a new product to start selling to consumers.

In this post I picked 39 best products from Xiaomi that have sold the most this year.

BEST NEW XIAOMI PRODUCTS OF 2020

SMART SCALE

xiaomi smart scale

Price: $22.27

Key features:

  • Can detect weight as low as 50gr.
  • Low energy (Bluetooth 5.0) – up to 12 months on a single charge
  • Highly accurate BIA chip for body fat %

More accurate measurement is the top priority of this scale.

This smart scale can be used to know all the important data, more specifically: body weight, BMI, body fat percentage, muscle mass, water rate, protein rate, visceral fat grade, basal metabolism, bone mass, bodies old, ideal body weight, body size, and health score.

It tracks all this data when connected to a Xiaomi app, and keeps track of it for the easy access whenever needed.

With the low energy consuming Bluetooth 5.0 4 batteries can be used for up to 12 months. The scale can support data records for as many as 16 people. There also is a guest mode.

NIGHT LIGHT

xiaomi night light 2

Price: $13.88

Key features:

  • 3 Modes: auto (using a motion sensor), on, off
  • Battery capacity: 500mAh (up tp 20 hrs.)
  • Weight – 100 gr. (0.2 lb)

Xiaomi's Sunny night light is an ultimate night light.

It comes on/with a wall attachment, where it will stay most of the time. The best part, however, with this night light is the fact that it is removable, and that it can act as an independent light.

For example, you wake up in the middle of the night, and need to go to a different room to check on your pet hamster. The light will get activated with a motion sensor and illuminate the first few steps. Then you can pick it up from the wall attachment, and carry it with you to wherever is needed.

The attachment is magnetic, so there are no clips involved – it is very easy to remove and put back into place.

When the battery starts running out, it can be charged with a supplied Micro-USB cable.

If you live in a larger household – grab a few of these to place strategically in different rooms and hallways.

REDMI NOTE 9S

Price: $187+

Key features:

  • Snapdragon 720G Octa-core CPU
  • 6.67″ DotDisplay 2400 x 1080 FHD+ display
  • RAM: 4/6GB (you get to choose)
  • Rear camera: QUAD – 48MP+8MP+5MP+2MP AI camera; Front camera: 16MP
  • Battery 5020mAh – supports 18W wired fast charging (USB-C)

It's hard to talk about Xiaomi's best products, and to not mention the smartphones.

Xiaomi Redmi 9S has proven once again us that a good smartphone does not need to be expensive. We already kind of knew that, but the boundaries are being pushed more with each new model that's being released.

2020 Has brought upon us the Redmi (sub-brand of Xiaomi) 9S, which is well-equipped with a Snapdragon 720G CPU, a 5,020 mAh battery and a 6.67″ display with a stunning 2400 * 1080 FHD+ resolution. And a fingerprint reader located on the side is a nice bonus. Unfortunately, no NFC – but if you need it, go with the 9S PRO version.

All I can say is “wow”, and “thank you”.

AIR CUSHION

youpin air cushion

Price: $31.88

Key features:

  • Material – Lycra (spandex)
  • Size: 460mm x 410mm (18″ x 16″)
  • Comes with air pump (+ optional water compressor)

Xiaomi air cushion will turn any hard chair into a comfortable lounger.

It is a travel-friendly pad that consists of 42 individual air pockets that will evenly distribute the air among them for the maximum comfort.

There are options to choose between the option that comes with the 2 straps (to be used as backrest), and with the water compressor (to be used as a seat cover). An air pump comes with both options.

The seat option with the water compressor is best used during the warmer days to keep the seat more cool.

NINEBOT DRIFT W1

ninebot drift w1

Price: $150.52

Key features:

  • Silicone Bumpers
  • RGB LED Lights
  • 45 Mins Battery Range
  • 10% Hill Grade
  • IPX6 Splash-proof
  • Portable

When Segway introduced their first scooter, it was big, clunky, and it looked objectively terrible. But since it has been acquired by Ninebot (who have been acquired by Xiaomi), their designs have significantly improved, and so did the variety of the products.

Xiaomi has long been a leader in e-scooters, and now they started releasing even smaller and more space-efficient gadgets to help you get around in a more time-conscious manner.

Segway Drift W1 is lightweight, sturdy, and takes no more space than a pair of high-tops.

LOFREE MOUSE + KEYBOARD SET

(Can be bought separately)

youpin lofree 2

Price: $40.24 (mouse), $76.94 (keyboard)

YouPin Lofree is a stylish mouse + keyboard combo.

The mouse is available in 6 different color options (signature yellow is our favorite). The keyboard has 5 varieties.

Both products are compatible with all OS: Windows or Apple.

Both products can be used as either a wired device, or connected to your computer/laptop via Bluetooth.

NASAL HAIR TRIMMER

youpin nasal trimmer

Price: $9.59

Key features:

  • Waterproof seal
  • 10,000 RPM speed
  • Ergonomic design

Nasal trimmers are not the most exciting product, unless they are made by Xiaomi.

This trimmer has been released under YouPin ecosystem brand name, and it still has the signature high quality that we expect from Xiaomi.

Imported steel from Toyota has been used during the manufacturing process. The waterproof seal on the back (the battery port) prevents moisture from entering, thus enabling the product to be used in various conditions.

The trimmer requires 1 x AA battery to run (due to the shipping restrictions, it is not included).

SCREWDRIVER SET

new xiaomi products

Price: $29.49

Key features:

  • S2 steel
  • 24 Bits (6 long, 18 short)
  • Electricity-powered
  • Designed for portability

This screwdriver set is a must have for small electronics repairs, and is a generally useful thing to have around the house.

It comes with 24 different heads: 18 short and 6 long that will work with almost anything: be that smartphones, glasses, cameras and so on.

The charger port is USB type-C, which is great: we are finally seeing the micro-USB being phased out on smaller electronics as well!

Casing is made out of aluminum alloy, which is resistant to rust, and the case has anti-slip coating.

RECTANGULAR WATER BOTTLE

water bottle

Price: $28.80

If you didn't think that a water bottle can get more ergonomic – Xiaomi is here to shatter your expectations (in a good way, of course).

The beauty of this bottle is that it will fit snuggly in any bag and will take less space, all while having a visually pleasing design.

This bottle's capacity is 375 ml (just shy of 13 oz). The plastic is BPA-free. It comes in 4 different color options: white, black, pink and burgundy.

RICE COOKER

Price: $60.71

This apartment-friendly rice cooker from Xiaomi is everything that we want the rice cooker to be: power-efficient, space-conscious and easy to use.

Being a part of the Xiaomi's smart ecosystem, you can control it remotely via the app: set the time to start and pick the recipes (which will affect how long is stays on for). You can also heat the food ahead of time – think of it as a remote-controlled microwave.

As a bonus: it even comes with a rice spoon 😉

PU'ER

Price: $29.99

Not something you would normally expect from Xiaomi – yet here it is! A block of pressed genuine pu-er tea.

Key benefits of pu'erh tea:

  • Increases energy
  • Cleanses toxins from your body
  • Prevents the growth of new cancer cells

And – not the least important – it tastes good too!

BACKPACK

new xiaomi products

Price: $9.55

Main Features:

  • Soft and comfortable polyester
  • Water-resistant material
  • Stylish look and a large variety of prints

If we have learned anything so far, it is that Xiaomi has a very diverse product line. And these high-quality backpacks are another example.

Despite the size they have a reasonably big capacity (10L), yet are very light – only 165 grams (0.3 lb)!

In this listing there are 13 different prints, and there are many more available in alternative listings.

2000-lumen FLASHLIGHT

deerma flashlight

Price: $27.99

Main Features:

  • IPX7 waterproof
  • USB Type-C Charging
  • 265 gr. / 0.6 lbs. weight

Upgrade your go bag! This flashlight from Xiaomi does not have Bluetooth, but what it does have is a strong LED that can emit light as bright as 2000 lumen.

It comes with a USB Type-C plug (welcome to 2020!), and the running time on a single charge is between 3 to 15 hours – depending on how bright you set it to be.

To put a cherry on top of the cake, it is IPX7 waterproof and is rated to sustain drops from 1 meter (~3 ft.).

ROLLING PIN

rolling pin

Price: $18.30

This rolling pin will keep you rolling, rolling, rolling (yeah!) with its natural pine smoothness – it's meant to make a boring/monotonous process more pleasurable.

Natural wood rolling pins are preferred by cooks as they are less sticky, more durable and generally moisture-resistant. But most importantly, they are more pleasant to use than alternatives.

Though you should coat them in oil after each use to prevent cracking.

rolling pin 2

MOSQUITO LAMP

xiaomi mosquito lamp

Price: $24.54

Unless you are a Hirundo Rustica AKA Barn Swallow (chances of which are pretty high, as they are the most widespread species of swallow in the world), you probably don't like mosquitoes. Or maybe you like them so much, you just want to have them all to yourself – in either case, this mosquito zapper is a perfect toy for you.

Don't let its' silence-ness fool you: inside there is a violet lamp that attracts the mosquitoes close, and the vortex airflow suction swoops them into the tray, from where there is no escape.

There is a button belt on it for the outdoor use.

I would buy them and put them in every corner of my apartment, if I had a mosquito problem.

xiaomi mosquito zapper

USB HUB

usb hub

Price: $8.19

A USB hub for a vintage car enthusiast. There is a WWII-era place design available as well.

Unfortunately, it only comes with a USB 2.0 input.

FRIDGE STERILIZER

fridge deodorizer

Price: $9.40

A soda box on steroids, this fridge purifier extends the life of the fruits and veggies in your fridge, and removes the odor associated with, well, an old fridge. It also adds a pleasant minty aroma to it.

The recommended fridge purification area is 80-100L – roughly 3.5 cubic feet, so if you have a large fridge, it's best to get 2 of them.

LINT REMOVER

xiaomi deerma lint remover

Price: $11.91

Key Features:

  • 0.35mm micro-arc knife net
  • 1,300 mAh battery (90 min. running time on 1 charge)
  • 5-blade floating cutter head

A good lint remover will remove the annoying curling pieces of lint from clothing, making it look new and fresh.

The one made by Xiaomi has high-quality blades and a large lint tray. The 1,300 battery allows for 90 minutes of running time, which should be more than enough to refresh your entire wardrobe!

CURTAIN CONTROLLER

curtain controller

Price: $104.13

Xiaomi Aquara is a motor-operated curtain controller, which is a part of the Xiaomi smart home ecosystem.

The beauty of it, is that it can be controlled via your smartphone. You can set the closing and opening time, or adjust them as you please.

curtain closer

YOUPIN GIIKER

coolest xiaomi products 2020

Price: $55.99

Youpin Giiker is a Rubik's cube on steroids. It's gimmicky, but very cool!

It can be used as a regular Rubik's cube – sure, but it is also a great training toy. When synced with an app, it can show you the fastest way to sync the blocks. It also trains you on how to solve the puzzles, making you the absolute champion.

The cube has a nice-feeling mechanic-y click in each move.

The headphones that it comes with act as a charging port.

Redmi 9S, Rimless Sunglasses + A Few More Best-Selling Items from 2020

A lot of things have changed since the lockdown, and here is the new bestselling AliExpress products, with the items from May of this year.

SUNGLASSES

Price: $2.92

The first product today is these sunglasses. In a very short period of time this listing has received over 13,000 orders.

With a promo, that was filmed on a smartphone and masterfully put together using a TikTok editor, I can definitely understand the appeal.

The sunglasses look good though, and they come in a variety of colors.

ELASTIC STRAPS

Price: $13.99

People being locked down in most countries means that the sales of home exercise equipment, along with mechanical bedroom companions, is also going to be on the rise.

I’m, not going to show the latter, but here is one of the best-selling exercise straps.

This set has 5 bands with the different resistance strength, handles and a carrying pouch.

SOFA COVERS

Price: $35.40+

A cheap way to make your old couch look better is this elastic cover that wraps all around it.

There are 24 different color options and 4 size options, depending on the number of seats on your sofa.

The size measurements are listed in the description, and it is highly recommended to measure the couch first before buying the covers.

LINT REMOVER

Price: $1.99

Staying home with pets means having to interact with the pets more often. Which means more fur on your clothes.

And while it is possible that you will not have the need to impress anyone other than the cashier at the local supermarket, keeping clothing fur-free is not a bad idea.

This brush comes in a variety of differently colored handles.

MAGNETIC CHARGER CABLE

Price: $1.69+

This cable with 53,000+ orders might be the most ordered cable, if not the most ordered item on AliExpress altogether.

There are options for Micro-USB and USB type-C, and there are several color options for the cable, like grey, gold, silver, red and black.

ELASTIC HAIR BANDS

Price: $2.29

A simple elastic head band shouldn’t cost too much.

There are 13 color options available, mostly plain pastel colours, and a leopard print for the most adventurous.

AESTHETIC T-SHIRTS

Price: $11.68

Aesthetic t-shirts that all the edgy individuals are getting for the summer – $11.68 USD gets you one with free shipping to most countries.

They come in white or black, with 3 different print options.

If you are curious about the fit, browse through the feedback pictures – there are plenty of them to give you an idea of what it looks like.

RESISTANCE BANDS

Price: $0.53+

Regular resistance bands are also quite popular this season.

This listing gives you an option to purchase them individually, based on the desired resistance strength. 

NAIL GEL

Price: $0.82

This nail gel listing has over 36,000 orders.

There are 60 different colors available, and the listing feedback, however trustworthy it is, is rated at 4.8 stars with a lot of feedback.

CROP TOP

Price: $3.64

The listing for these simple summer tops has 14,000 orders.

Good for working out, or wearing around the house or at the office, since these two are pretty much the same thing nowadays.

LAUNDRY COTTON BALLS

Price: $4.90

Outside of the obvious joke, these organic wool balls are used for a few reasons:

1. To help absorb the moisture during the drying cycle to make clothing dry faster and more effectively, and

2. to gently infuse the clothing with scents, if you drop a few drops of aroma oils on them.

They are reusable.

YARN

Price: $1.14

Being in quarantine means picking up new hobbies.

And to unleash your inner 80-year old with surprisingly steady hands what better hobby there is than knitting?

There are 32 different colors available in this listing.

WATCH

Price: $2.79

This metallic watch that we have seen in the recent $3 watch review video.

It’s great for the price, you can see a lot of pictures in the feedback section, if you got time for that, to get an idea of what you can expect if you decide to order it.

RIMLESS SUNGLASSES

Price: $8.74

Rimless sunglasses that come in 6 different lens color options.

These come with a carrying case, a cloth and a manual – in case you forget how glasses work.

AIR HUMIDIFIER

Price: $10.71

The summer is approaching, and in some countries it already is shorts and iced coffee season.

To keep the air moist and fresh, you can use this air humidifier. For the best result, drop a drop of aroma oil into it before using.

ANTI-SLIP MAT

Price: $1.19

And if you have a phone or any other things that you don’t want to drop, here is an anti-slip pad. It is washable and can be used virtually indefinitely.

10 VERY popular things on AliExpress for UNDER $1 (Q1 2020)

People like seeing things that other people like to buy. I often go through the products that are purchased through my affiliate links, because it gives me a lot of insight on what the buyers want.

Today we are going to see the list of the best-selling things from the last 3 months that you can get on AliExpress for $1 or less.

1. PINS TO ADD TO YOUR COLLECTION

Price: $0.55+

The first product today is these lovely pins.

We have a cat sitting behind the leaf, a dragonfly, a feather, a feather, a Jamaican maple, and a cat completely hidden behind the leaf.

2. SUPERHERO MAGNETS TO BRING SOME COURAGE TO YOUR FRIDGE

Price: $0.56+

The second item is a selection of fridge magnets.

The best part about being an adult in the current day and age, is that you can decorate your fridge with any stupid magnet that you would like, and nobody would bat an eye.

I’ve recently started playing Fortnite, and I have bought one in the middle because I like to loot my fridge in the middle of the night.

3. EARRINGS WITH 1,500+ ORDERS

Price: $0.58 + shipping

The third item are these earrings.

They have been purchased over 1500 times, which tells me they are probably fashionable? I don’t know. They look cool, I guess.

4. STICKER SETS FOR A PERFECT STICKERBOMBING

Price: $0.61 + shipping

The next item is a set of not 5, not 10, but 45 stickers (per set) for scrapbooking and stickerbombing.

There is 12 different sets to choose from. My favourite ones are the first one and number 10 – check the listing to see them.

5. PENS THAT WANT TO BE MERMAIDS

Price: $0.47 + shipping

The fifth item, believe it or not, pens.

These are quite hideous, in my humble opinion, but apparently there is at least 2323 people that will disagree with me. But, believe it or not, I am not responsible for their money (and I would argue that neither are they 😂).

6. BOTTLE OPENER RINGS FOR A LAZY EVENING

Price: $0.53+

The sixth item is this beer opener ring.

It is possibly popular for people in quarantine who, with respect to efficiency, want to exclude an action of having to reach for the beer AND the beer opener, and would like to have this bottle opener that you can wear on your finger for convenience at all times.

7. LUMINESCENT SHOELACES FOR A BETTER VISIBILITY AT NIGHT

Price: $0.28-0.48 + shipping

Desperate times call for desperate measures, so if you want to entertain yourself by looking at your feet, here are luminescent shoelaces.

They glow in dark, so you can put them on and sneak out without turning the lights on.

8. PADS TO RELIEVE YOUR TOES

Price: $0.73 + shipping

I have not worn closed-toe high-heels for long enough, but I have a basic understanding of physics to be able to imagine that it might get a bit uncomfortable with the pressure that is being put on the toes from always sliding down.

These pads can, if ever so temporarily, help to ease it a bit.

9. MAGNETS FOR SPACE NERDS AND FREE SPIRITS

Price: $0.49 + shipping

If you don’t like superheroes, you probably like science, and in the name of astronomy, here we have space pins with 7 different planets, the sun and the moon.

They can be a good reminder that if you don’t stop eating all the time, your stomach will get its own orbit 🤨

10. SPACE PATCHES IN CASE SPACE MAGNETS WEREN'T ENOUGH

Price: $0.39+

The item number 10 are these space-related embroidery patches. They are iron-on patches, so you don’t have to sew them on.

There are 46 different designs to pick from, and some of them are actually quite cool.

Stoner Socks, Rings, Grasshoppers: 15 Best-selling Gift Ideas for <$5

A new compilation of the best-selling things that you can get from AliExpress for $5 or less. There will be 15 products in this post that are placed in no particular order. We added things based on the amount of recent orders in our internal sales data.

Now, following this dry as a dead nun's gusset intro, we proceed to the products, which are hopefully a tad more lively and exciting.

MUSIC BOX

Price: $2.79

A music box that comes in the form of a keychain for a true music enthusiast. Once you wind it up, it starts playing a short simple tune. There is no batteries required, the music box is wound up using the dial on the side.

This dumb little thing has over 2800 orders, and I’m pretty sure it’s about to get a few more.

LETTER RINGS

Price: $0.89

Quite possibly the cheapest ever option for a custom gift – a ring with the custom initial.

There are options for each letter of the alphabet, and 3 colors for the material to choose from.

BOTTLE OPENER

Price: $3.02

If you think that the world is overpopulated by about 50%, here is a bottle opener that will reflect your beliefs.

It already has all the 6 stones in it, so $3 plus shipping is a pretty fair deal to increase your power of opening bottles if you ask me.

WATER BOTTLES

Price: $3.05

These bottles with cute animals have also been ordered a fair bit. The pictures of the animals are cute, and the bottles remind you that life is beautiful at no extra cost.

TUBE SQUEEZERS

Price: $0.26

For the people who like to get the absolute maximum efficiency and bang for their buck out of everything, here is a tube squeezer.

The strong jaws of any of the 4 critters are going to squeeze the absolute last drop out of your toothpaste, hand cream, or whatever other tube that you put into it, and they do it for much cheaper than the friendly faces at the rear entrance of that shady gas station.

MINIMALIST MAGNETIC LACES

Price: $2.18

A minimalist option of the magnetic laces with the option to ship it out of China or the United States. The elastic string comes with two little magnets on the ends that are easy to clip and unclip, which will save you a few seconds of your time every day.

They don’t look like the best-looking laces out there, but they do the trick. There are 24 different color options available in this listing.

MICROFIBER SPORTS TOWELS

Price: $1.17 – 2.46

Small and absorbent microfiber towels. They are quick to dry, and are pretty effective for their small size.

There are two options in this listing, either the towel on its own, or a towel that comes with the carrying case.

The material is pretty interesting, while it does have the ability to quickly pick up water, it also is really easy to quickly squeeze it out, thus combined with the size that makes it a perfect towel for sports.

BALLOON DOG STATUETTES

Price: $4.10

Cute dog balloon statuettes. There are a lot of different sizes available on AliExpress, with the sub $5 ones being the cheapest. They are unique, pretty and original, and they come in 4 different colors. 

NAIL SET

Price: $2.49

A matte black 7-piece nail care set. Not the most exciting and interesting product, but a useful one nonetheless.

It comes with a box, which will be easy to take with you on the road. According to the reviews, the items inside are sharp and work well.

PHOTOSHOP PINS

Price: $0.59 – 1.97

Enamel pins for the graphic designers. Most of them are under $1, except for two last of them.

There are 10 different options, and the last one is a discount deal. 

BOWL CLIP

Price: $2.99

Handy duck head-looking 2-in-1 clips and scoops. They are advertised as dog food scoops, presumably due to the size of the scoop, but they can be used for anything – sugar, salt, rice, and so on.

On a side note, I was disappointed by the lack of dog pictures in the feedback section for this product.

50 COMPRESSED TOWELS

Price: $4.14

If you don’t want a good quality microfiber towel, or if you need more, here is the listing for 50 crappy compressed towels that would probably leave a few customs workers scratching their heads in confusion.

If you haven’t seen these before, you need to drop these tablets into the water and they will expand into little towelettes that are better described as napkin-sized cloth.

SOLAR GRASSHOPPER

Price: $1.50

This little grasshopper is another solar toy that has been purchased over 4000 times and it has over 1600 reviews to attest to its dumb cuteness.

Once exposed to the sun, the legs of the grasshopper start moving, and he starts shaking and walking. Some units have been reported as defective, but the seller has no problems issuing refunds for those.

AUTONOMOUS WATERING DEVICE

Price: $0.95

If you are going on a vacation, but don’t want your plants to die, here is a very simple but a very useful device.

The plastic drip stick inserts into the ground and slowly feeds the water through, drop by drop like your grandpa at 3 am. It is compatible with all regular-sized bottle necks, so any water or pop bottle would do.

The speed of the flow can be adjusted with the knob.

STONER SOCKS

Price: $1.20

Ankle socks that we had listed in the shop section website for quite some time, that since then have been ordered over 14,000 times. As you can see, they have faces embroidered in them that peek out if you wear them with low top shoes.

There are 10 different designs, and at this low price you may as well get yourself a few pairs. Their shape would be specifically good for the new shoes, as they would protect the back of the foot against annoying blisters.
