Along with the announcement of its new line of Mi TVs, Xiaomi also unveiled its latest PowerLine Wi-Fi adapters. The new adapters don’t have a proper English name yet but their current name translates to Powercat.

For the unfamiliar, PowerLine adapters allow users to expand their home’s Wi-Fi network without using additional LAN/Ethernet cables. The adapters utilize the home’s electric wiring and outlets to extend the network from the modem to wherever the adapter is plugged in inside the house.
