Xiaomi coming to U.S., U.K., France and Germany with accessories to sell
Xiaomi is finally coming to the U.S. In fact, the company is also expanding to the U.K., France and Germany. But before you get too excited, the upstart manufacturer isn't selling handsets in these countries, only accessories. It will offer products like its 5000mAh and 10400mAh Power Banks, the Mi Band and Mi Headphones. It all starts May 19th at 1PM CST in those countries.

The accessories will be offered via a flash sale from Xiaomi's own website, Mi.com. Since it is a flash sale, buyers will need to register before May 19th. Since selling its wares in these countries is something new, Xiaomi is only putting its toes into the water with a limited number of products being offered.

The 10500mAh Power Bank uses Premium Li-ion battery cells from LG and Samsung and is priced at $13.99. Not a bad value for so much additional battery life. The 5000mAh Power Bank will cost you only $9.99. The Mi Band, Xiaomi's fitness tracker, will also track your sleep and go 30 days without needing to be charged. This device will go for $14.99 and pairs with the iPhone (iOS 7.0 and higher) and Android handsets (Android 4.4and higher). Lastly, the Mi headphones will be priced at $79.99.

If all goes well, perhaps we will see Xiaomi start selling its phones in these countries.


Thanks for the tip!

I have it, bought it on dx for 18 dollars 10200Mah, it charges my z3 compact almost 5 times. 2A charge speed so even faster than my own z3 charger lel. I recommend it.

If it's 10200 mAh for real, than it's fake! Xiaomi doesn't have 10200 mAh packs. You can check the serial number on their website http://chaxun.mi.com to check There are many fake cheep packs out there ;-)

True that. My model is the 10400mAh version. Xiaomi doesn't have any 10200mAh version

I don't understand what there is to test. Put it in store, see if people buy. This way, the only people that will buy are tech fans that even know what Xiaomi is outside china and a few other countries. But anyway, I will definitely try to get a MiBand.

You wouldn't say that if you knew what it takes for a manufacturer to convince retailers for their shelf space.

I believe shipping costs are not included though, so it will be a bit more expensive, especially since they only ship with express carriers such as DHL, FedEx or UPS
