One of its newest toys is the Xiaomi Mijia Pulse Water Gun, a sleek and futuristic device that was crowdfunded successfully a few weeks ago. It has a minimalist design that is typical of Xiaomi products and makes you think it has taken on Apple’s design ethos.
The Xiaomi Mijia Pulse Water Gun has some cool features, like auto refill, lighting effect, and three shooting modes. You can refill the water tank by dipping the nozzle in water and pulling the trigger. It takes 10-15 seconds to fill up and you’re ready to be right in the thick of a major water fight.

The charged mode shoots a bigger blob of water, but it uses more water than the other modes. You can get about 25 shots in single or continuous mode, and about 12 shots in charged mode.
This water gun can shoot up to 30 feet and has a digital screen that shows the mode, battery, and water level. It comes with an 1,800 mAh battery that can be charged with a Type-C cable. The charging port has a cover to protect it from water and dirt. The battery life and the water capacity are unknown.
