To begin, China’s home appliance industry is relatively mature, and in recent years, many Internet manufacturers have entered the home appliance field to develop innovations. In 2015, one of the well-known Internet companies, Xiaomi, released a socket product called “Xiaomi plug-in board,” which set off a fishy storm in the socket market. As a “bull” has been producing sockets since its establishment in 1995, in the face of this round of Xiaomi’s offensive, took out years of solid foundation in relevant research and development, production, and other aspects, launched the bull white USB socket.
Appearance: Is this the old brother? I have to say, these two sockets look too similar to take to the office girl to see, and the girl said she simply can’t tell the brand apart. Both the white color is used as the main color, and the appearance of the design part of the design logic for the minimalist home style, you can see that the aesthetics of the two for the socket is relatively similar. When comparing the two, the BULL White USB socket is a lap larger than the Xiaomi USB socket, and the front part of the Xiaomi does not have any extra design, even the logo has been eliminated, whereas the BULL White USB socket has its own logo “hidden”.
Instead of combining the switch and the indicator light, the Bull White USB socket employs a split structure layout design that separates the push switch from the indicator light. The advantage of this design is that once the switch or indicator function is in use, it does not directly lead to problems with the entire integrated module, maximizing the user’s safety. From the side view, the Xiaowei USB socket is more curved than the Xiaomi USB socket at the bottom, which looks more design, while the Xiaomi USB socket still maintains the “no design is the best design” style, which do you prefer? The Xiaomi USB socket uses a silicone sleeve at the end of the power cord, and the power cord sticks out from the silicone sleeve, but due to workmans fault,
Xiaomi sockets are primarily done by OEM companies, and OEM companies’ offers and production capacity are limited by their own capabilities. Although the products listed are qualified, striving for excellence is difficult. On the contrary, the bull, in addition to having its own manufacturing plant, is also laying out automated production workshops, and the manufacturing level is among the top in China.Xiaobai USB socketXiaomi USB socket The design of the plug, I have to praise the bull again, the bull small white USB socket plug part of the design of two concave cut, so the design is easier to plug and unplug, while the millet USB socket or the traditional “no design” style.
The power cord is basically the same in feel, as measured by calipers, the bull white USB socket is 0.07mm thicker than the millet USB socket, and the reason for this difference is that the insulation layer of the bull white USB socket power cord is thicker to avoid accidental heavy objects touching the power cord insulation layer to prevent electrocution and accidents. According to the power cord specifications, the internal copper wire of both sockets is 1mm2, which meets the safety standards of the third edition of the new national standard for sockets, and both are 300V/500V voltage load standards.
The power cord is also made of 3×1.0mm2 thicker gaugeThe outer shell is made of flame retardant material Disassembly: disassembly to see the real chapter I can’t control myself, take out a screwdriver to open the demolition! It should be noted that, because the two sockets are too good integration, had to violently disassemble……
The bottom of the anti-slip pad buckles down, four screws in front of us, it’s interesting that the bull and millet use “special” screws, the bull is “H” type screws, millet is “triangle “type screws. After disassembling, both sockets basically use the integrated design layout of copper strip electrode shrapnel, which looks very neat.The internal copper strip of the Xiaowei USB socketXiaomi USB socket internal copper stripThe internal copper strip of the Xiaobai USB socket is 0.67mm.
After the actual test, the internal copper strip of the Xiaowei USB socket is 0.67mm thick, which is 0.58mm thicker than the internal copper strip of the Xiaomi USB socket, that’s the cost!Xiaomi USB socket internal copper bar at the snap
Xiaomi USB socket security door is required to combine with the shell, and if the single disassembly, there will be a loose frame, and compared to the bull, Xiaomi’s security door workmanship is really general. As mentioned above, the volume of the USB socket is slightly larger than that of the Xiaomi USB socket, and we discovered through disassembly that the interior of the USB socket has some space reserved for the copper section, which is more helpful for heat dissipation.
From the standpoint of the two sockets’ quality, the quality of the bull has a reputation, the quality of the improvement cannot be produced out of thin air, the corresponding product cost is naturally higher, while Xiaomi has always stressed the “cost performance” supremacy, but the control of the product materials and quality control is very far from the bull. Today, the bull has a professional testing center, each of its socket products must pass ATE testing, aging box testing, and other 29 testing processes before leaving the factory, strict control of details, these are in fact the cost, in this comparison review, we can also find that the bull white USB socket is better than the millet USB socket,
