Though some people may assume Chinese products good for nothing, the same can’t be said for the Xiaomi Mijia products. When we heard the brand Xiaomi we mean the prime quality at an affordable price. And the quality even gets better with one of the Xiaomi sub-brands known as ‘Mijia’. Such is one of its product known as Xiaomi Mijia Mosquito Repellent. It’s minimal and charming design forced as to grab one and do an in-depth Xiaomi Mijia Mosquito Repellent review.
So what’s so special about the Xiaomi Mijia Mosquito currently rated 4.85/5 stars by the customers, which makes this $15 repellent superior and a top seller over other Mosquito Repellent. Let’s dive into the details and know the answer to this question in Xiaomi Mijia Mosquito Repellent review:
Xiaomi Mijia Mosquito Repellent Review – Is it Worth Buying Under $15?
Xiaomi Mijia Mosquito Repellent unboxing is one of the selling points. Why? This is because of the numerous accessories it comes with. The Mijia Mosquito Repellent rest inside a beautiful white box with the product illustration on the top, specs sheet on the back, and some features and logo on each side. The writing is of no use since it’s all Chinese.
Opening the top lid, we find the Mosquito Repellent resting in the box. The bottom lid already opened and we have to close it after unboxing.
Underneath the repellent is the mini box containing the repellent tablet/mat and the two original Xiaomi AA batteries. At the bottom, we find the user manual which is also completely in Chinese. though the illustrations on it might allow you to learn how to operate the device, however, it’s not that much effective as writing. So we already have provided our own manual for you on how to operate, change batteries, and repellent tablet/mat. Overall, the accessories are:
- 1 x Mijia Mosquito Repellent
- 1 x Mosquito Repellent Tablet
- 2 x AA Battery
- Chinese User Manual
It is very generous of Mijia, that we have all the necessary things available in the box and there are some extras like the two AA batteries in comparison to the Xiaomi Portable Mosquito Repeller. One thing is sure that you can’t insert your own local mat like in the old portable Mosquito Repeller.
Starting the Xiaomi Mijia Mosquito Repellent Review with the design, Xiaomi ensures that this Mosquito repellent should be as portable and compact as possible. That is why it only occupies a space of 11.00 x 11.00 x 6.00 cm which is the same as a mini Bluetooth speaker. This makes it practically conceivable to use it anywhere you want, at home, in your car, and even carrying it in your bag.
The Xiaomi Mijia Mosquito Repellent is highly eco-friendly because of the materials which mold it. These materials are High-grade ABS and PP. At the bottom, we have organic silica gel applied to the mats to make it anti-skid on slippery surfaces. Honestly, we never expected that the plastic quality would have a great feeling and finishing to it under $15, but it totally surprised us in the first impression. Thanks to these materials, Xiaomi Mijia Mosquito Repellent weighs only 150 grams which are slightly lighter than a standard 5.5 -inch smartphone. For a product of that size, the weight is high but that’s all quality added to it.

The appearance had a more striking effect rather than the design. Xiaomi keeps the white chassis of the repellent with minimal and plain appearance. It’s simply neat with no logo on the visible part of the mosquito repellent. The only writing and logo we find are at the bottom.
At the front, we find the power button to turn it on/off along with the LED light which turns green when the Xiaomi Mijia Mosquito Repellent is on. There are the openings on the top and bottom to effectively repel mosquitoes and other bugs as well as to clean the device easily.
In comparison to the Xiaomi Portable Mosquito Repeller, it’s almost 2x the size, 4x the weight, and twice the performance.

The most convenient feature of the Mijia Mosquito Repellent is how easily we can use it. The top lid opens effortless just by pressing the top and rotating it anti-clockwise. There you can find the place for the tablet to rest. You can simply replace it like a tray without further opening anything. Replaced the tablet, then just attach the top lid again.
Inserting a New Tablet
Step 1: Place your palm on the top and rotate it anticlockwise.
Step 2: Remove the top lid
Step 3: Place the new tablet with the flat side on top and the expanded hook side on the left
Step 4: Place the top lid and rotate clockwise to close it
Step 5: All done! It’s ready
All this process takes only 10 to 15 seconds and allows you to continue another 90 days without any problem (apart from the batteries which need to be replaced after 45 days).
Inserting New Batteries
It’s much easier than adding the tablet. Simply:
Step 1: Remove the bottom lid (stand)
Step 2: Place the two AA batteries
Step 3: Close the bottom lid
Due to the small size of Mijia Mosquito Repellent, it ideally works best in a room which is less than 28m³, so a side table or a desk might be the best place. Though limited area but worth praising because the effectiveness never decreases in this range and it’s slightly more area then what we expected from the bug repellent that small. One should note that it simply doesn’t repel mosquitoes only but other bugs like moths and flies as well. Since it’s eco-friendly with no odor, we don’t have to smell that harmful and pungent odor from most of the repellent. It’s also friendly to the pets and other animals.
The tablet simply attracts the bugs and the built-in little fan drive volatilizes.
The Smart Front LED Status Feature
Rather than worrying about why other Mosquito Repellents are not working or when to replace the tablet and batteries, Xiaomi Mijia Mosquito Repellent has a nice LED status feature which allows you to instantly know the status of the device.
- Green LED light (Constant): The device is working properly
- Green LED light (Flashing): The device is now in timing mode
- Red LED light (Flashing): The device is low in power (replace batteries)
- Yellow LED light (Flashing): The tablet is insufficient (replace the tablet)
- Red and Yellow both LED light (Flashing): The device is low in power and the tablet is insufficient as well
Ending the Xiaomi Mijia Mosquito Repellent review, the average life of a single tablet is around 72 – 90 days (maximum) only if the 10 hours timing mode is on. Same is the case with the battery life which can easily last up to 30 to 45 days depending on how frequent the user uses it. The only thing we didn’t like is buying a new tablet can be a lot of pain since it’s rarely available from the global stores and takes time to deliver.
Rather than a direct power cable needed to power a repellent continuous, the Mijia Mosquito Repellent is powered by two AA batteries making it highly portable.
