This is Takagi, whose Xiaomi smart home appliance fever has not cooled down lately.
Today, I visited the Xiaomi store at the Gateway Mall in Cubao, Quezon City, Manila, following my last visit to SM City North.
If people want to buy Xiaomi’s smart appliances but want to try them in their hands, it would be good for them to see various demo units and actual products.
However, as a precaution, it is best to check beforehand if the outlet type is Philippine-specification. If it is a Chinese specification, you will need to purchase an additional adapter.

The selection of products is unmatched by the Xiaomi store in SM North.
I often go to the Gateway Mall in Cubao, but I didn’t know there was a Xiaomi store there.
My expectation was that it would be tucked away in a corner of the floor, but when I went to the third floor, I found that it had opened with a bang, shoulder to shoulder with the Apple and Samsung stores.
There were flowers on display to commemorate the opening, so I guess it hasn’t been open long. (In the Philippines, they don’t take down decorations even after Christmas, so it’s possible that the flowers were left unattended.
Xiaomi’s smart lights, smart rice cookers, smart vacuum cleaners, smart air purifiers, etc.
Xiaomi’s smart lights
This is the bedside version of the smart LED light I mentioned earlier. 2,290 pesos.
Smart Stand. 1,590 pesos.
This is the popular Smart LED bulb, 600 lumens, 9W, a little low on horsepower! 899 pesos.
Smart appliances that make you smart
Smart scales. Will it make us smarter?
Smart kettle. 1,699 pesos. Temperature control, wifi connection, bluetooth connection.
The inside of the kettle is also not just plastic. This may be a good option for those who are not comfortable with the plastic inside of local kettles.
Of course, there is also the smart rice cooker. 3,999 pesos.
The accessories are like this. A steamer for siomai is also included. The kanji character for “thick pot” must have been written by Mr. Naito (lol).
I forgot to check the power supply as well, but from the pictures, it looks like it can’t be plugged directly into a Philippine outlet, so you’ll need an adapter.
Smart Indoor Appliances
The big one in the back is the Smart Air Purifier, which can purify air up to 60sqm.
The two colorful units in the foreground are Smart Air Purifier Mini, which I didn’t see in the catalog. 1,290 pesos.
The Mi Robot Vacuum is a smart vacuum cleaner; I couldn’t try it out at SM North, but there’s a dedicated space here where I can try it out.
Xiaomi’s smart gadgets, smart suitcases, smart vehicles, etc.
Smart suitcase. This one is 28 inches and costs 4,995 pesos. It seems to be less fragile than a bad local suitcase.
Smart suitcases are available in large, medium and small sizes.
Small (20 inches): 2,995 pesos
Medium (24 inches): 3,595 pesos
Large (28 inches): 4,995 pesos
100% polycarbonate polyester with TSA lock.
Wifi Repeater 2, 399 pesos, is a gadget that relays wifi signals, receiving wifi signals from cafes and other places and then sending another wifi signal from there.
It is said that if you are far away from the Wifi router and the signal sensitivity is poor, it is better to put a Wifi repeater in between.
It’s a smart camera, a small camera like a GoPro that you can take everywhere with you.
I’m getting tired of taking pictures with my phone, so this is a product I’m secretly aiming for.
Smart electric toothbrush.
It has three cleaning modes and a unique sensor.
3.7 volts 2 watts, IPX7 waterproof. 700mAh battery capacity.
Body: 1,599 pesos, toothbrush head is 495 pesos.
Smart mobile battery. I like the one for walking around town, so I prefer the 449 peso one, the second one from the right in my hand.
The 499 peso one is 5000mAh, but it’s 9.9mm thin and supports fast charge, so it’s better in specs than the one I bought at MINISO.
Smart extension outlet. 445 pesos.
I thought it would be a recommended product because the price is comparable to what you would pay locally, although the outlet holes are not Philippine specific.
I don’t think it will sell very well because there is a problem with the gimmicky part of the extension cord (laughs).
This kind of smart vehicle is also one of the features of Xiaomi.
- Smart Skater (Mi Electric Scooter): 18,995 pesos
- Smart Electric Bike (Mi QiCYCLE Electric Bike): 26,995 pesos
- Smart Segway (Mi Ninebot Mini): 19,500 pesos
How to get to the Xiaomi Shop Gateway
LRT Line 2 to Xiaomi Shop
To get to the Xiaomi Gateway store from the LRT, take the exit on the Gateway side and enter the Gateway directly.
From there, cross UNIQLO and go down one floor to the lower level.
Go into the corridor next to the apparel store called MANGO on the third floor where Starbucks is located. Then you will see an Apple Store on your left and a Xiaomi store behind it.
Take a cab or private car to the Xiaomi store.
If you are driving to the Xiaomi store, take the main exit of the Gateway. Accenture is also a tenant at Gateway.
There is also an outdoor parking lot behind the KIA Theater in front of the building, next to Shop Wise.
From near the main entrance of the Gateway, you can see the Isetan Cubao store.
If you take the escalator at the main entrance, you will find the very popular Coco. If you take the escalator to the third floor, you will see the Apple Store and the Xiaomi Shop next to it.
Take the MRT or bus to the Xiaomi store.
To get to the Xiaomi store from the MRT or bus, first get off at the Cubao station.
Then Farmer’s Plaza, then Araneta Coliseum, then Gateway Mall, all without getting wet!
