Xiaomi has already launched a bunch of products via crowdfunding
Back in April 2018, Xiaomi introduced the Mi Crowdfunding project in India with the Mi Bluetooth Audio Receiver and Mi Selfie Stick Tripod.
Later in December, the Chinese tech giant launched the Mi Sunglasses via the same platform.
And, as recently as February this year, the company introduced its Mi Sports Shoes 2 in India via the crowdfunding platform itself.
You might need a E27 to B22 base converter
The Mi LED smart bulb comes with an E27 base. Hence, if you are using B22 holders in your home, you will need to separately buy an E27 to B22 converter to be able to use the bulb.
