One of the best known and most popular Xiaomi fans as an import is the Smartmi 2S. This test report is also about this.

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.

field test

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.

ventilation levels

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.

Operation Volume

The Xiaomi standing fan is actually a smart gadget with lots of gadgets. Who does not shy away from the very high price, receives a really outstanding processed floor fan with very good ventilation, a barely audible operating volume and a long battery life. Point deductions are mainly in power consumption. Although this is already much lower, as with some a supermarket fan, but a lower consumption in standby, as well as the ability to turn off the WiFi, have been desirable.

The battery operation sounds tempting but 160 € for a fan, no thanks: D.

Mark Ulrich

there are hardly any alternatives if you also need a fan while sleeping. At 300 euros, the Balmuda is almost twice as expensive, and I had to send back two orders from Amazon because the motors made annoying noises. The cheaper, better replica of the Balmuda, the Swiss Solis 753 for 120 euros, is no longer in production. I have been using it with satisfaction for 2 years. Only the Xiaomi remains as a “whisper fan”, except for the Klarstein Silent Storm (100 euros minus 10 euros new customer discount from the manufacturer) can keep up here. It has only been available since April.
All the other fans I've seen or saw in offices are many times louder, and sleep is out of the question for them.


What does the soundscape look like when the swivel function is on? Then crack something or are other, disturbing noises audible?

Still happy with the fan?

Mark Ulrich

The test coincides with my first impression. Here is my impression, as I just posted it on Facebook: so, the Xiaomi “silent” fan is there. Gorm von Wickie would say: “I'm delighted” 😀 ‍ The “mihome” app is quick to set up. I especially like the stepless slider for speed control. The app on the smartphone replaces a remote control. The most important thing: the volume. I'm in the office right now and have to verify it later at night in the quieter bedroom, but I have the impression that he can easily keep up with the Solis 753 / Balmuda Greenfan. Unlike my two returned Balmuda, the engine does not make any noise. Depending on the speed, you really only hear the wind, not the engine. Fine-tuned to a little below level 2 of 4, practically inaudible, the draft is just right for sleeping, just like with the Solis, if you put it at the foot of the bed. More then quickly becomes too cool.... Continue reading "

Complement: the Klarstein Silent Storm actually plays in the same league. He is much bigger. If you like it filigree, you should take the Xiaomi. If the price is the most important (and service like easy return), the Klarstein is better. Reviews about him on Amazon.

Hi all,
In advertising / other reviews, the Greenfan always emphasizes that the wind distribution is totally enjoyable. Since I am very sensitive in this regard, that would be my main criterion. Can the other two devices do the same, or is that just nonsense with sauce anyway? Thank you for the answers

Judith Liesen

Hi Timo, thanks for the quick reply! I'm really surprised that the Balmuda doesn't do much better for you. The rotator blades are quite different, even if the rest may be the same. With the Balmuda, the smaller ones are inside and the bigger ones outside, hence the distribution of the wind. The Xiaomi is just normal rotator blades. Really no difference felt? Then of course I prefer to pay only half?


Hi, I'm afraid that I caught the current model of the Xiaomi MIJIA fan, big difference to the old version is probably that the current fan has no battery.



I bought the device at GearBest and it also has the original Xiaomi logo on the fan. There are now 4 buttons available at the top to make all sorts of settings directly on the fan. Also in the manual of the device no battery is mentioned.

GearBest itself has not yet responded to my ticket and on the box is also the typical sticker with respect battery attached.

If you look for the fan in the Xiaomi app in the shop you will find it without a battery there in the shop.


The baby gets my two fans today, both without battery.
Really annoying there is the Gearbest Built-in 2800mAh Li-ion battery.
Have now also created a ticket. Am curious.
@ Michael please tell me what you write with stretch
On Youtube there is a video of exactly the fan so the 2018 version, with 3: 50 min it is operated without cable.
Are there maybe 2 versions and they have sent the wrong one ???


I'm still waiting for feedback from Gearbest, will give feedback as soon as there is something new. Let's hope for the best @Jerominek. And do not forget to let me know as soon as something happens to you.


Received an answer today from Gearbest, it must be requested in the product department takes up to 2 days. I'm curious. I also asked about the product weight on the package.
This is at 4.6 kg on Gearbest's order page at 6,1 kg so it's not right front and back. On the Xiaomi side, the fan costs a whole 45Euro I had also written.


Thanks for the feedback. Will write again tomorrow to GearBest. Wait since 30.06. On answer..


Have you heard of Gearbest?
That was the answer I received today:
We have checked this issue. According to manufacturer, there is built-in chargeable battery for this item.
When using, it needs to be plugged into the power strip to provide power. The fan can operate.
Who should understand that, which should have a built-in battery, no idea where, the old had the yes in the bottom of the new there has no opening at all, and without cable this does not work.
The answer from Gearbest is totally absurd has a battery but must be connected to the socket to work.
Will probably switch on Paypal


Mine also came without a battery. - Gearbest has now confirmed that to me. But that doesn't solve my problem that I only bought the fan because of the battery function. : We have confirmed the issue with the relevant department and have taken measures to ensure this issue is resolved. This is because od the wrong description. There is indeed no battery in this item. Please see our terms and conditions here for your reference: As an exceptional gesture of good will you can keep the item and there is no need to return it to us at this time. We can then offer you the following option: 1. Partial Refund To Wallet We can refund you 15 USD to your Gearbest Wallet for use on your future orders. In addition we will reward you with extra points that you can use as discount towards your next purchase. (1 points for every... Continue reading "


Is a joke with the 15USD. According to the terms, you can send it back in vain because it is a mistake from Gerbest to have sent a wrong article.


Hey, I still have not got an answer, that whole is deposited with me as RMA and the status is:
Post - sale status: post - sale application (your RMA has already been submitted)
06 / 30 / 2018 05: 36: 44 CST Your RMA has already been submitted

Problem is, can also contact us no longer to gerbest write, because I am always asked to specify the order, but which is already selected and not changeable.

Got the (new?) Model with 4 control buttons directly on the device. Everything works fine, but I can't get any connection to the fan if I die. The fan’s WiFi is visible and I can also connect. The MI Home app then does not find the fan. All permissions have been granted. Nothing to do. No fan is listed under “add manually”. Strangely enough, the fan can also be found under Bluetooth, but pairing fails with a meaningless error. what am I doing wrong here? The instructions are of no help even in English, you won't find anything about them on the Internet. In addition, the MI Home app on my Honor 8 doesn't look like it does in all videos or other websites ... WTF? Help 🙁

Frank V.

Got it right. I had to switch to the “China Mainland” region in the MI Home app. Then finding the fan also worked. Then I was able to withdraw all rights from the app. Maybe it will help someone with the same problem ... 😉


Is there a new model or is there an update for language support via Alexa / Google Assistant / Siri Shortcuts?

And now you can negotiate a nice offer with Gerbest to match the temperatures 😉


I read somewhere that Alexa and Google Assistant are also supported. Can an owner confirm this?



Does the fan really consume about 9 watts in standby? That's too much. Can someone confirm that again please. Unfortunately for me would be an exclusion criterion. Otherwise he likes me very much.

Thank you Gregory
