Laser Rangefinder Xiaomi Duka LS-P
Xiaomi does not only release phones and smart home devices, recently they have begun to actively promote tools under their own brand. Today we will talk about a compact laser rangefinder Xiaomi Mijia DUKA LS-P with a nice price.
A fair question arises. To whom and in what cases this device can be useful? We will try to answer this question, but first, let’s take a closer look at it.
In the box
The device comes in a small box. Its dimensions are 127 x 66 x 18 mm and its weight is 60 grams. Most inscriptions are in Chinese. About Xiaomi, only the logo of the youpin.com site in the upper left corner resembles. The package includes a rangefinder itself, a cord, a charging cable and instructions (in Chinese).
The device itself is quite miniature, its dimensions are 86 x 22 x 11 mm, and its weight is only 28 grams, the dimensions can be compared with a Cricket lighter.
The body of the device is made of aluminum-magnesium alloy and caps made of ABS plastic. The screen occupies a third of the front panel (its dimensions are 20 x 14 mm). The screen is equipped with a built-in backlight that allows you to use even in low light.
Under the screen is a large round control button. On the right side there is a mode selection button and a place for attaching the lace.
On the opposite side is a micro-usb port for charging.
On the top of the device we see the emitter lens and the receiver lens.

Please note that these are specifications for the LS-P model. There is an even younger LS model on the market, its functionality is worse than the model presented.
There is no moisture protection in the device, so the use of the range finder in the rain, and even more so, to drop it in a puddle, is impossible.
The manufacturer claims a measurement range of up to 40 meters, and a minimum boundary of 30 mm. In tests, this seems to be true, but at high ranges, the device should be stationary (even a slight vibration does not allow it to be measured).
The battery is lithium, with a capacity of 200 mAh. According to the manufacturer, it should be enough for 3500 measurements.
