In the shops, this screwdriver set, which belongs to the Xiaomis Mi Home series, has appeared last week. In addition to comparable sets from, the price is quite high, but Xiaomi is again focusing on design and (German) quality. But is that enough to justify the price?
German quality and Chinese elegance?
The tools are produced in cooperation with the German tool manufacturer Wiha, which is also extensively pointed out on the advertising graphics. This may be particularly beneficial for sales in China (“German quality”), but if the tools are good, who says that we can not order them ourselves in Germany?
As the name implies, fine mechanic sets like this are used in smaller screwdriving operations, such as smartphones and laptops. Do not even think about it, to build your living room cabinet.
The set contains, in addition to the actual screwdriver / handle 24, individual steel bits. These are different models, namely:
- Phillips / Phillips (PH000 / PH00 / PH0 / PH1 / PH2)
- Slot (1.5 / 2.0 / 3.0 / 4.0)
- Hex (H1.5 / H2.0)
- Torx (T2 / T3 / T4 / TR5 / TR6 / TR8 / TR10 / TR15)
- Spanner U2.6
- Tri-wing 3
- Pozi (P2 / P5)
- Triangle 2.3
Box and handle are made of aluminum, the bits are made of steel. Typical for Xiaomi is, of course, design. At first sight the box looks like one of Xiaomis Powerbanks; the gray outer cover is made of brushed aluminum and shows in white the Mijia and Wiha logos. Inside each bit is individually marked, which makes the whole thing beautifully clear. The box is a total of 168 x 67 x 17 mm, so it can be stored and transported very comfortably.
