Xiaomi is steadily getting more serious about the gaming segment. In the last few months, the Chinese company has launched gaming laptops, and a gaming smartphone. The company also launched a gaming mouse recently. Now, it is adding to that by introducing new accessories such as Mi Mouse Pad and Mi Smart Mouse Pad. Both products are targeted at gamers. However, the Mi Smart Mouse Pad comes with additional features such as wireless charging and RGB lighting. Xiaomi is retailing the mousepads at RMB 49 (approximately Rs 500), and RMB 259 (approximately Rs 2,700) respectively.
The Xiaomi Mi Smart Mouse Pad comes with Qi Wireless charging. This means that it can charge compatible mouse, and even smartphones. Xiaomi claims it to support charging for the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S, and other phones that support Qi wireless charging. The company also claims the mousepad has a charging efficiency of 75 percent. It features a built-in temperature control technology, which can switch off charging the moment the device is fully charged.
There is also an aluminum knob placed at the top-right corner of the mousepad to control the RGB lighting mode. The color scheme can be changed by rotating the knob left to right and there are about 16.8 million colors to choose from. The knob can also be used to control the volume on the computer, once it’s connected via Bluetooth.

Moving over to the Mi Mouse Pad. While it does not have the smart features, Xiaomi says it has provided a smooth surface coating, which can improve sensor performance on the mouse and enable speed tracking. The mouse pad features dimensions of 355x255x2.35mm, and weighs 196 grams. Both products are available for purchase on Xiaomi’s crowdfunding platform.
