Every once in a while, me and my wife love to drink a good wine. So some time ago I came across the Xiaomi Huohou Automatic Wine Bottle Opener. Since I love wine but also the brand Xiaomi this was the perfect combination and makes it a perfect gift. Sometimes removing a cork from a bottle of wine can be difficult. We hope this gadget puts an end to this. The Xiaomi Wine Electric Bottle Opener is specially designed to solve this problem.

Because of the dimensions of the Xiaomi Huohou Wine Bottle Opener it’s not that handy to take it with you to work, friends or family. It’s easy to charge with the included micro-USB cable (into computer or phone charger)

pro / cons

pros

  • Low Noise
  • Open a Bottle in less then 6 seconds
  • Built in battery can be charged with micro USB.
  • Due to the Built-in 550mAh lithium battery and a charge for 2.5 hours and you open 70 bottles of red wine! But sorry haven’t tested that in this short period.
  • A perfect give for wine lovers.

cons

  • Bigger then a traditional opener and some people like the traditional way to open a bottle but other then that I can’t name a con.
  • Still need to cut foil manually

Verdict

Xiaomi did a good job to work with the Xiaomi Huohou to create an very functional and well designed automatic wine bottle opener. It is a great help for wine drinkers. It can automatically remove the wine cork without any wood chips falling off.
In about six seconds you can open a bottle without any sweat. Because of the looks, price and functionality it become a perfect gift!
