Xiaomi Smartmi Standing Fan 2S / 2 fan
One of the best known and most popular Xiaomi fans as an import is the Smartmi 2S. This test report is also about this. The fan was first published in 2017 and has undergone minor revisions over the years. The special thing about this model is the battery, which can also be used to operate the fan wirelessly. Models 2 and 2S also differ in this one. The Xiaomi Smartmi 2S comes with a battery, the Xiaomi Smartmi 2 without! In China, the fan costs less than 40 euros.

First impression of the Xiaomi Mi Smart Fan
Scope of delivery and assembly
A stand fan for just 160 € is anything but cheap. Accordingly, my expectations for the Xiaomi Mi Smart Ventilator were very high. The fan is well packed in total 9 items delivered. That for the assembly required tool is included and surprised by an extremely high quality. The manual is Xiaomi typical in Chinese. Due to the comprehensible illustration of the individual steps, the assembly is, however, very understandable even without knowledge of Chinese.
Design and workmanship
In my search for comparable floor fans, which are also in a similar price range, I have actually come across a model that looks similar to the Xiaomi pedestal fan confused. Of the Balmuda GreenFan The Japanese company Balmuda costs almost double the Xiaomi fan with 300 € and also offers similar functions. Already 2014 has sued Balmuda against Xiaomi, because the "Xiaomi Air Purifier" was similar to the "Balmuda Air Purifier" confusingly similar. Is the Xiaomi Smart Fan just a cheap copy of the much more expensive Balmuda standing fan?
At least at first glance one could conclude. Visually, the Xiaomi fan impresses with its modern design with matt-white base, the anodized connecting rod and the visible propeller. The dimensions are 34 x 33 x 92 cm, with a weight of 3.74 kg. The processing of the entire fan is astrein and meets the high price.
Commissioning and app control
The Xiaomi fan can be used in the battery or directly over the Steckdose, However, since it is a product for the Chinese market, it is included Power cable only with a NEMA-1 connector fitted. However, the cable is removable and can be replaced with an 2-pole power cable with EU plug.
Commissioning is simple. Insert the plug in and switch it on via the switch on the motor. Four green LEDs on the engine and four LEDs on the aluminum bar indicate the four possible operating levels. The operating levels can be changed via the multifunctional switch-on button. If you have connected the fan via the power cord, is simultaneously the replaceable 2800 mAh large battery charged.
Mi Home App
The smart control of the Xiaomi standing fan is done via the "Mi Home App". This app is now the control center for all Xiaomi household gadgets. The app is available directly from the Google PlayStore or Apple AppStore. The Language of the user interface can not be in German, but on English change.
A connection between the app and the fan is over WiFi manufactured. For this purpose, the floor fan with a 2.4 GHz WiFi Module (802.11 b / g / n) fitted. The user interface of the app is clearly structured. On the home screen you get Information on the current room temperature, which is measured by a temperature sensor of the fan. The app can also be used to switch between the 4 operating stages and you can even steplessly change the ventilation strength. Within the settings it is possible to enter automatic shutdown after operating time or a Shut down by time to program. A motorized swivel function allows the fan to rotate horizontally by 120 °. Vertical inclinations can unfortunately only be made manually and are not motorized.
Another feature of the app or the fan is the possibility of Simulation of a natural wind, Based on an algorithm, an arbitrary air flow is generated.
The last week of May was perfect for the practice test of the Xiaomi standing fan. With outdoor temperatures above 30 ° C, which also properly heated up my attic in the attic, the fan ran around the clock.
At Level 1 The fan creates a gentle breeze, which was sufficient at a distance of about one meter to work comfortably in the 28 ° C attic. The ventilation is so quiet that the fan running at level 1 is not audible even at night and you could easily sleep next to it.
At Level 2 A twice as strong air flow is generated, which clearly noticeably passes the skin at one meter distance. Even at this level, the fan is still working so quietly that it goes down at normal room volume. In the quiet room, the device makes itself felt only by a very low buzzing.
At Level 3 the airflow increases again significantly. By activating the motorized rotation, the fan is already able to ventilate at this stage by a smaller space section. The volume produced is still pleasant to work with, although the volume has increased significantly compared to the 1 and 2 levels.
At Level 4 The Xiaomi Smart Fan generates a very strong airflow, which can be uncomfortable if the distance is too short. Instead, 4 is great for ventilating a larger area of space. The volume also increases significantly and can be compared to a conventional floor fan from the supermarket.
Battery life and power consumption
The battery life is very different and depend on how you switch through the tap program, the app has actively connected and whether the rotation function is activated. With off rotary function and also more permanent Level 1 The Xiaomi floor fan reached one Running time of 16 hours, On Level 2 were 13h possible, up Level 3 or 10h and also Level 4 was reduced Runtime on 6 hours, With active spin function, there are runtime differences of about two hours. The charging time of the battery is 2 ½ hours.
In the cable network is the power consumption 8.76 watt in standby, On Level 1 is the consumption at 10.95 Watt, If you additionally activate the rotation function, the consumption increases 13.14 Watt, Consumption up Level 2 is 13.08 Watt, on Level 3 and improve at 15.33 Watt and on Level 4 and improve at 22 Watt.
Unfortunately, the Xiaomi fan cannot be switched off completely, so it is always on standby. The WiFi of the device cannot be deactivated either. If you do not use the app control, the power consumption could be further reduced by deactivating the WiFi.
