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.
The Xiaomi Powercat PowerLine adapters have a transmittion rate of 300Mbps, are plug-and-play, and feature automatic SSID naming as well as password synchronization (WPS). They will be priced at 249 Yuan and will initially be available on Xiaomi’s online store.
