Think Xiaomi. Think T-shirts. TVs. Suitcases...

One of the country's best-known smartphone brands, Xiaomi is undertaking a journey aimed at helping it transform into a lifestyle player.The first few steps have been taken, with the Chinese major in the last few weeks quietly launching a slew of non-smartphone products.This includes Mi branded luggage, backpacks, apparel, U-shaped pillows, pens, home security cameras and air purifiers.It comes in addition to wearable devices (like Mi bands), electronic accessories (like routers, chargers, power banks, earphones and cables) and television sets that Xiaomi already has in the country.The plan, says a company spokesperson, is to tap the broader smart products space as Xiaomi eyes growth beyond smartphones in India. "We are evaluating appropriate categories which make sense for the Indian market. India is ready for smart home and lifestyle products with smart TVs leading the interest," the spokesperson said.Xiaomi took the plunge into smart TVs in March with all three variants of its 'Mi' branded LED TVs available both online and offline. The next phase of growth would see its TVs get into offline multi-brand outlets as it competes head-on with established names such as Samsung, LG and Sony.In an interview in June to , Manu Kumar Jain, global vice president and India MD at Xiaomi, said the company was actively working on ramping up its television business in the country. By end-September, Xiaomi had already sold half a million TVs in India, with the company pushing the pedal further in the space.The firm, which made its stock market debut at the Hong Kong bourse in July, has recently begun manufacturing TVs in India. And according to Jain, Xiaomi is looking to manufacture its products locally in other categories too. The firm, for instance, already makes handset components such as printed circuit board assemblies (PCBAs) locally and is doing the same in the case of power banks, Jain said.India remains Xiaomi's largest market outside of China, where $1 billion of the nearly $5 billion raised in the initial public offering has been set aside for expansion. The company already commands nearly 30 per cent market share in smartphones, ahead of Samsung in the April-June period, according to International Data Corporation, and proposes to expand its lead in the category, led by product innovation and a strong distribution push both online and offline. The latter (offline push) will be critical to its second phase of growth in the country, sector experts said, as it diversifies its operations.Xiaomi had entered India in 2014 through an online-only business model, though in the last one year it has made the brand available in brick-and-mortar retail chains, exclusive stores (called Mi Homes) and dealers (called Mi Preferred Partners). The company plans to have 100 Mi Home stores by the end of 2018 from 50 outlets now. It has also launched two company-owned-and-operated stores or "experience centres" in Bengaluru and Navi Mumbai (Vashi), which will see it showcase all its products under one roof. More such "experience centres" are on the cards as Xiaomi expands its horizons here.The Chinese major also proposes to increase its content and software tie-ups in the country as it seeks to improve stickiness and provide more features for less (in terms of pricing) within smartphones.In June, the company entered the digital lending space in India, with the launch of a 'Mi Credit' product, to boost phone sales. The initiative helps consumers get personal loans via offers that appear on their lock screens when using their phones. The company is also investing in domestic start-ups as India remains critical from a growth point of view, Jain said. Insights gathered here are taken to other markets, he said, including those in Asia and Latin America, places where Xiaomi has revived its expansion plans.Since 2017, the company has re-ignited sales in markets such as Indonesia, Vietnam, Russia, Spain, the United Arab Emirates and Ukraine. The company is also eyeing an entry into the US market in 2019 as it looks to strengthen its presence worldwide.

If i use the air conditioning in my car will it use some of the gas or will it use the battery power?The ac unit is driven by belts and compressors. There is some toll taking on fuel economy because your engine works a little harder to turn the compressor. Its really boils down to what comfort level you can live with. Since your altenator recharges the electrical system there is really no draw on the battery.... d4.

How much should air conditioning repair cost?You got off very cheap. As far as a 400% mark up on a capacitor, you did not pay for the capacitor, you paid for the techs knowledge and the fact that he was able to diagnose the problem. You paid for the fuel and wear on his van, the workmans comp, his medical insurance, his tools, his on going education, his 401-K, liability insurance, his uniforms and about 22 other items I will not bore you with. Think about it this way, if I am sick, you are the man. When your home comfort system fails, the HVAC tech is the man. Like yourself, he deserves to make a solid living for the knowledge he has.9. Air Conditioning Question..If you open doors and windows & keep 3 airconditioners on, what happens?Of course it will increase the cost. That chilled air is going outside after you paid for it. The A/C already mixes fresh air into the air it chills so it does not need new hot and muggy air from those windows.

What to look for when buying a new furnace/air conditioning unit?First off, shop around because you will find a big price difference. The things you need to know is how much will it cost to run.

Make sure the installer shows you how to do basic maintenance such as the proper way to clean the evaporator and condenser coils. If you have central heating you will have the ducts already. If not it will be quite abit costlier. Get many estimates and compare them on price, Btu estimates (Do not volunteer this to an estimater), you will be able to weed out some contractors by this. You can search air conditioners online to see the different fomulas used to determine Btu's. If the price they give sounds overwhelming, they have portable a/c units you can move from room to room, but you need to exhaust the heat to the outside. Sound is the other thing you need to consider
