It’s noteworthy that the ultra-fast charger was able to charge the battery to 10% in mere 44 seconds.

The company currently has three smartphone brands, POCO, Redmi and Mi. The latter being the flagship device. Owing to its high quality products – taylormade for middle income consumers – Xiaomi has swiftly captured mobile markets across the world, especially in South Asia.
Xiaomi’s Himo H1 bike
Last year Xiaomi released a state-of-the-art Himo H1 electric bike. Weighing only 13 kgs, it’s an extreme folding e-bike designed with an emphasis on portability. It folds down like the tiniest transformer you’ve ever seen. Some are even shown with Transformers logos and trademarks, though whether or not those are properly licensed is another question.
For context of its size, it is smaller than an A3 size sheet of paper, which is equivalent to roughly two 8.5 x 11-inch sheets of standard printer paper. But any which way you slice it, Xiaomi’s new Himo H1 electric bike is pretty darn small.

Xiaomi is offering the Himo H1 in China for 2,999 yuan (approximately US $425). Other Xiaomi e-bikes and scooters have taken longer to reach international audiences, but the Himo H1 is now being offered worldwide. And Xiaomi even managed to keep the price fairly close to the original domestic deal. Early customers can grab a Himo H1 e-bike for $469, not including shipping. And while shipping will add to the price, it is actually reasonable.
The whole thing weighs just 13 kg (28.6 lb) and looks like it could fit in a briefcase. In fact, the Himo H1 e-bike even comes with its own carrying case. It’d be perfect for commuting in parks or university campuses.
