Xiaomi is well known for its range of smartphones, smart TVs and IoT devices, but that hasn’t stopped the company from expanding its portfolio with unusual, non-technology products. Recently, the company launched an Mi Pen for RMB 20 (approximately Rs 200) and Mi Umbrella for RMB 69 (approximately Rs 700). Now, the company has launched yet another product called Wowstick 1fs in China. It’s an electric screwdriver that is priced at RMB 199 (approximately Rs 2,000).
One of the key highlights of the Xiaomi electric screwdriver is its pen-like design in aluminum finish. The screwdriver weighs around 234 grams, XiaomiToday reports. Featuring an LED ‘shadowless” light for illumination purpose in dark, the Wowstick 1fs is very compact, portable and also includes manual and automatic modes.
Together with screwless interface and 3-axis self-locking structure to protect the motor, the screwdriver offers maximum speed of up to 100 rotations per minute. The packaging includes a Wowstick 1fs electric screwdriver, an extension rod and six standard bits. For those who want more, they can go for a set with 18 bits too, but it will cost a little extra. These bits (or attachments) are magnetic, making them easier to use.
The Wowstick 1fs is powered by a removable battery that Xiaomi claims to work for up to eight hours on a single charge, and offers standby time of up to 180 days. The electric screwdriver has been listed on Xiaomi’s online store for crowdfunding, and shipping is expected to begin from September 22.
