Xiaomi Has a Mini USB-Powered Portable Air-Conditioner That Costs Just $40

Three things are certain about life in Singapore: Death, CPF, and the heat.

The Singapore sun is an unforgiving beast, melting residents into puddles of goo the minute they step out of their houses.

We’d leave our houses fresh and clean and look like we showered with our clothes on by the time we reach work.

Even now, when everyone’s working from home, the heat and humidity are boiling us and our blood.

And if you care about the environment or your bank account, air-conditioners aren’t an option.

So, what can we do?

Well, Xiaomi has a nifty little solution for you.

Xiaomi Has a Mini USB-Powered Portable Air-Conditioner That Costs Just $40

Throw away your fans, drink a hot drink, and wear a jacket in your own house, because Xiaomi has released a mini USB-powered portable air-conditioner!

Why should you be excited about this? Well, there are several reasons.

It uses ice water to produce cool air, so you don’t have to worry about high electricity bills. According to MS News, 1 litre of water and a full charge allows it to run for five hours!

It can be charged via USB, which means you could power it with your laptop while you’re binging Netflix and playing games all day long – I mean, studying or working at home.

You could also charge it with an extension cord, of course, but that’s not as cool.

As Cool as 13°C & Lightweight

I’m sure you’ve purchased such devices before, which purport to blow cool air with the help of ice cubes and cold water, but end up blasting the sun’s rays upon your already sweaty face.

It only weighs a little over 1kg and measures 18cm by 20cm, so it’s small and light enough to sit on your table and blast cool air towards your beautiful face.

This tiny air-conditioner costs just $46 on Lazada or $39.90 on Qoo10, which is a decent purchase considering how much time we’re spending at home these days.

Air-Conditioners Are Bad For the Environment

You might be wondering, why would I buy a tiny portable air-con when I can get a giant bulky electrical one instead?

See, when you turn on an electrical air-conditioner in your house, all the hot air isn’t magically transmitted to another planet. Instead, it’s pumped out into the local atmosphere, creating atmospheric ‘heat bubbles’, according to Earth Times.

And since many people have air-conditioners, this contributes to global warming.
