Xiaomi has launched a unique multi-function device in China that can be used as a flashlight, lamp as well as power bank. This compact device has a 2,600mAh lithium-ion battery that can be used for many purposes. As a ‘Natuo Multifunction Induction Torch’ (via Google Translate), it is listed on the Xiaomi Youpin website where it is available for CNY 119 (about Rs 1,200). The 3-in-1 device is assisted by a dual photo sensor that helps detect ambient light in its surroundings while being used as a lamp. It also has a sensor that can detect human presence in its vicinity. This enables the lamp to shine when one is nearby and turns it off when none is. The sensor has an area of 120 degrees that can detect human presence up to 3 meters.
The official images describe the device and its use by Xiaomi. It is a versatile lamp that can be used in various ways. It can be used as a wall mounted lamp and can also be used as a bus table lamp. You can also use it as a flashlight. It can also be converted into a power bank if needed. As mentioned above, the device has got sensors using which it can detect human presence and also judge ambient light.
As mentioned above, it is available in China on the Xiaomi Youpin website for CNY 119. However, currently there is no information about its availability globally or in India. Notably, Xiaomi launched its new Mi Smart LED Desk Lamp 1S in India last week. The lamp comes with brightness control (2600-5000K) and color temperature control. It can be controlled via an app, and Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple HomeKit have cross-functional support. The listing was first viewed by ITHome.
