Xiaomi not only actively develops the segment of consumer electronics and home appliances, but also does not ignore the clothing market. The next novelty of the company was a smart jacket with heating. Despite the thin lining and elegant appearance, this accessory is able to warm even in severe frost.
The jacket uses a fabric based on graphene nanotubes developed by one of the divisions of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Thanks to the use of this technological fabric, the developers were able to solve two problems at once: the jacket can be washed, but at the same time it carries current and contains heating elements.
The heating zones use a voltage of five volts, which is absolutely safe for humans. The lining has a special controller, which disables the heating mode after three hours of operation.
The peculiarity of the novelty is almost instantaneous heating. There are four operating modes with temperatures of 53 °, 48 °, 34 ° and 38 ° Celsius. According to the company, the energy efficiency of clothes is 99%.
The jacket does not let the wind pass and repels water, and also prevents loss of heat. In the course of laboratory tests, the developers found out that the jacket maintained the temperature of 47° for two minutes when immersed in a vessel with a temperature of -120° C.
