The last few weeks we have heard news about the coronavirus, which has shocked citizens of China and even some other countries. Now we all think about how to protect our health and the health of our loved ones from this virus.
Yesterday, a new UVC lamp from Xiaomi appeared on the Youpin website, which promises to destroy bacteria, viruses and even coronavirus in your home.
Of course, Xiaomi engineers worked very quickly, and in tandem with Wuhan Huida Electronic Technology Co., Ltd, they created a new UVC lamp. It is a compact and stylish device that emits short UVC waves from 280 to 100 nm. These waves are capable of destroying DNA and RNA by 99.99% of bacteria and viruses.
By the way, Xiaomi UVC lamp is already actively being bought by the residents of China.
Let’s do the first review of Xiaomi’s UVC lamp. We will find out how it looks, works, and whether it really can save from coronavirus.

Xiaomi UVC Lamp: Design
We will not focus on the appearance of UVC lamp a lot, because it is not the most important feature.
But, despite the fact that Xiaomi’s UVC lamp was created in a fairly short time, it still looks stylish and modern.
Xiaomi’s UVC lamp is not like other bulky and fragile lamps from other manufacturers. It may become a stylish part of any interior.
The lamp has a very compact size – only 14.1 x 6.2 x 5.2 cm. You can not only carry it in your hand, but also in a small handbag or backpack.
The lamp is available in black or white. The case is made of plastic. In my opinion, the new device from Xiaomi looks like a small microphone on legs.
Unlike other UVC lamps, Xiaomi’s new lamp is protected by metal rims. If the device falls, the lamp should not break.
As you understand, the radiation lamp itself is installed in the upper part of the body.
In the lower part of the case there are two legs for better stability and a round power button on the front panel. On the rear panel is a USB connector.
It’s all about design, so let’s move on to the technical specifications.
Xiaomi UVC Lamp: Specifications
The main and only task of Xiaomi UVC lamp is to disinfect objects and indoor air. The lamp emits short UVC waves at 360 degrees. The length of the rays is from 280 to 100 nm.
UVC waves can destroy DNA and RNA of bacteria and viruses. The manufacturer promises that UVC lamp kills 99.99% of the bacteria in the room.
To destroy all bacteria and viruses, including coronavirus, Xiaomi’s new UVC lamp must be left indoors for 30 minutes.
It is important to remember that this type of radiation can be very dangerous for people. During the lamp operation, all people need to leave the treated room. Also do not forget about your pets. They also need to be taken out of the room, because UVC waves can harm them.
If you stay in the room, then there is a high probability of getting burns or getting blind. Looking at the Xiaomi UVC lamp on is also very dangerous.
This lamp uses mercury, and during disinfection it emits gases that are toxic to humans and animals.
To start Xiaomi UVC lamp, you do not need to be in the room. Firstly, you can control it remotely through the Mi Home app. To do this, you need to connect the UVC lamp to the smartphone.
Secondly, the UVC lamp has a special delayed start mode. By pressing the button, you will have 10 seconds to leave the room. I think that this is enough to run out even from a large room.
Xiaomi’s UVC lamp lasts about 30 minutes. If at this time the lamp detects movement near itself, it will automatically turn off. This is a special protection mode for animals or children who accidentally entered the treated area.
The lamp has a built-in 700 mAh battery. To charge Xiaomi UVC lamp, you need to connect it to the outlet using the USB cable that comes with the package.
Xiaomi UVC Lamp: Price and buy
Xiaomi UVC lamp is currently only available in China. Its price is only $12. I hope that soon it will appear on the European and US market.
