Often, January is the poorest month for news, since all movements take place in the United States, and here it takes a long time to harness. But not at this time. The pandemic left its mark, and this year everyone rushed to work from the first days, to announce and send any equipment for tests.

Mi 65W Fast Charger GaN Tech
You cannot do a separate material about this exercise, since everything is clear with it. It is small, compact, light (weighs 90 grams), super powerful – 65 W and very quickly charges everything you can.
- Dimensions: 30,8 x 30,8 56,3 mm, weight 90 g
- Connector: Type-C
- Working temperature: 0 – +40 degrees
- Kit: Type-C to Type-C wire, 5 amp powerful evil cable.
The charging uses gallium nitride, a semiconductor material that makes charging so compact. Its main advantage is that GaN transistors can operate at high temperatures – 150-200 degrees, the theoretical limit is 500 degrees. And the maximum electric field strength is 11 times higher than that of silicon. And thanks to its high carrier density, gallium nitride can handle much higher currents.
Gallium nitride has been formally known for 80 years. However, the first articles on commercial use in charging appeared about 6-8 years ago. And only in 2020 the technology became widespread and accessible. Charging costs only 2.5 thousand rubles.
By the way, it is likely that your laptop has a traditional brick-like 65W adapter. Look at its dimensions. And think how cool it will be to replace it with Xiaomi charger.
The picture above shows a variety of smartphone charges. Mi 65W Fast Charger GaN Tech – far left. She’s the most powerful. All other chargers are no more powerful than 30 W, although they can be larger and heavier
In theory, Mi 65W Fast Charger GaN Tech can be recommended to all new iPhone owners (Xiaomi says charging works great with all iPhones). Apple’s branded charger costs less than 2 rubles, but it is only 000 watts. And Mi 20W Fast Charger GaN Tech is a universal thing that can charge both iPhone, iPad, and MacBook Pro.
On the official Xiaomi website there is a list of laptops tested for compatibility. This does not mean that only these laptops are working, they just have been tested for sure. The best part is that there are Dell XPS models (and everyone knows how picky Dell is in this regard), there are basic models from HP and Lenovo. And this is very cool!
Dell Alienware M15 R3 with OLED screen
Although I regularly test laptops, this is my first laptop with an OLED screen. And to be honest, it’s divine. Alienware brought along with the MSI GS 66 Stealth laptop with an RTX 3080 Laptop GPU, which was supposed to be the main star of the evening. But the Dell Alienware M15 stole all the attention with ease. Gorgeous design and stunning screen, looking at which, first of all, I wanted to run and check all games on it.
One of the notebook’s specialties is the technology of tracking the user’s eyes, which is called Tobii Experience. Funny name. But the thing is amazing. Firstly, the laptop screen, when not looking at it, instantly becomes faded, thereby saving the battery. Secondly, in games, this technology steers by rotating the camera. At first I did not understand what was happening and why it was suddenly the character became so obedient. I tried to quickly record what I mean on the camera. I don’t move my head or touch the controls, only my eyes work. This feature is especially good for action moments when there are a lot of enemies or you need to do something quickly.
The Dell Alienware M15 R3 is a work of engineering that allows you to enjoy the latest games in 4K resolution. And this is a pleasure for the elite, since the price of a laptop is about 360 rubles.
Xiaomi: Mi Vacuum Cleaner mini
My dream is to drag Xiaomi into ad networks and make the general sponsor of gadget collections, because the company produces a huge variety of cool gizmos.
I have already reviewed the mini vacuum cleaner. The thing is gorgeous. When I wrote the material, I had not yet tasted it completely. And now, until they took him away, he hangs around the apartment. And to be honest, I got a taste. The brush attachment is ideal for cleaning laptops. All crumbs and dust particles are sucked in instantly. It is easy to remove spilled coffee or cereal flakes, clean around the gearbox in the car! A very handy mini vacuum cleaner, to which you get used to being always at hand.
The vacuum cleaner works for 30 minutes on a single charge. And I haven’t charged it for the last 3 days. Probably, he vacuumed for 15 minutes in total. By the way, I found out that there was no battery indicator, but I would like to, since a full charge takes 1.5 hours.
Soon February 23rd. And a vacuum cleaner is a great gift for this day. And inexpensive, and to the point.
RTX 3080 Laptop GPU
Nvidia generously gave a try on its new laptop card. I made a separate article about this.
The RTX 3080 Laptop GPU is pretty cool. Now you can play at 1440p, there is Advanced Optimus technology that allows laptops with G-Sync screens to switch to an integrated card, DLSS 2.0 is just space and the ability to play 80-100 fps at Ultra settings in the most demanding games.
And so I outlined all my enthusiasm, and in the comments the old hurdy-gurdy that everything is bullshit, TDP 95 W, and in general you need a stationary computer. These are probably such features of the worldview. But now you buy a game console. Plug into your TV and just play. Does it matter to you what hardware is inside, what TDP or what frequencies? No, you are just playing. New 30-series cards in notebooks are just about that. They are cheaper (at least in dollars) than the top 20 series cards, while still more powerful. And the same MSI GS 66 Stealth with an RTX 3080 Laptop GPU is the ability to play any games at 1440p without worrying about settings. Just turn it on and play. You can connect a large monitor, or you can put it in your backpack, go to another city and play there. With PS 5 or Xbox SeX, this story will not work. Well, or you need to carry a separate suitcase under the attachment.
They also wrote in the comments that for the price of such a laptop, you can take a console and an OLED TV. First, no one argues. Secondly, here we are talking about mobility. In theory, for the price of an iPhone 12 Pro Max, you can get a good landline phone and a decent camera with a lens. Also, the TV will remain, which will have a larger screen than the iPhone. One problem – you can call and watch only from home!
Sports watch from Xiaomi. I guess this is a product for those who want something more advanced than the Mi Band fitness bracelets.
The watch review will be released tomorrow, but for now I’ll tell you about the main advantages:
- Large screen with Retina-resolution, Always-On. The screen is bright, you can comfortably watch the data even on the sunniest day.
- Classic design. Here, of course, everything is subjective, but I never liked the same Apple Watch, largely because of its rectangular shape.
- Built-in GPS, GLONASS, Galileo
- Xiaomi talks about 16 days of work. I’m talking more about 10-12 days if you actively use all the functions.
- Continuously working heart rate sensor.
- There is an oxygen sensor in the blood. A super popular topic after Apple added this sensor to the watch, and COVID began to choke the population.
- There are many categories for sports, there is a count of jumping rope.
- Compact design, does not cling to clothes, weighs only 32 grams, tactilely pleasant materials.
- Track and evaluate sleep, stress and energy levels.
- Many different dials.
With a price of 9.5 thousand rubles, a very worthy product.
If someday I have an apartment in bright colors and with a minimalist design, I will definitely buy such transparent columns there.
Two speakers of 15 W each, there is a DSP, made of glass and aluminum, Bluetooth support, dimensions 38 by 30 cm. It costs 47 rubles.
Sunuo T11 Pro Smart Visual Ultrasonic Dental Scaler
Finally, another cool gadget from Xiaomi, which will go on sale at a price of $ 30. This is a homemade ultrasonic cleaner for dental plaque.
Here is such a neat tube equipped with illumination and a camera that will broadcast to a smartphone. There are three modes: soft, standard, and powerful. The idea is that you can prophylactically brush your teeth once a week, taking care of your health.
So far, the gadget is only available in China and when purchased through a crowdsourcing platform. However, when it goes on sale, you should definitely buy it.
Instead of a conclusion: Kohler Numi® 2.0 smart toilet
In the article on the main gadgets of CES, there is a cool bathtub from Kohler. The bathtub is made in Japanese style, lets in steam, murmurs pleasantly and costs 16 dollars.
Looking at the bath, I realized that it definitely needs a matching toilet in a pair! In introducing this toilet, Kohler says it gives its customers the freedom to live the way they like it! And this, by the way, is just about me. I really like to feel free on the toilet. Taking into account the stress and general difficulties of life, we can say that only on the toilet is it possible to relax and breathe deeply.
Numi® 2.0 has a built-in voice assistant Alexa, thanks to which you can voice the temperature of the water, which will gently wash your bottom at the end, you can also set the temperature of the toilet seat and choose a soothing lighting. The backlight is especially useful at night, as it allows accurate docking without turning on the light.
The toilet also has a built-in UV toilet cleaner and an automatic drain. And there are also presets, and each family member can create their own individual settings profile, which the toilet will activate by recognizing the visitor by voice! He came in, sat down like that, grunted a couple of times, and the toilet responded: “Good afternoon, Boris! Look great today! From my perspective. ” Kohler promises that the Numi 2.0 will leave you feeling refreshed and lightweight. Price to match the bath. Only $ 7.
