What to buy in China

China produces huge amount of electronics, and if you happen to be in China it's reasonable to buy some items. Here is list of my items, which I purchased during my Chinese holiday.

1. Xiaomi Bluetooth earphones

Once I tried Bluetooth earphones I can't imagine myself going back to the wired version. It feels so uncomfortable to have a device connected to your head with a wire. Xiaomi Bluetooth earphones provide excellent experience for just about ¥150 or $22. The audio quality is not the best, but the battery life is sufficient to go through entire day, and the build quality is on the level.

Colors available: Black, White
Weight: 17.8 grams
Standby time: 280 hours
Call time: 7 hours
Communication distance: 10 meters
Bluetooth version: V4.1
Bluetooth protocols: HFP / A2DP / HSP / AVRCP

2. Razer DeathAdder Elite

Razer DeathAdder Elite does not require any special introduction, it's a well known gaming mouse with a price tag somewhere in between $55 to $90 depending on the region you live. In China you can get this mouse for about ¥300 or $45, which makes it a 50% saving for the regions where it costs $90.

There are fake versions of Razer products in China, so be careful when purchasing one.

3. Razer mouse pad

I always feel greedy to pay up to $30 for a 35*30cm mouse pad. In China you can get a Razer branded mouse pad for just ¥30 or $5, there are even cheaper options, but I prefer to buy quality products, and mine is exactly the same as original Razer mouse pad.

4. All sort of cables and adapters

Another subject for extremely overpriced items in local stores are cell phone charging cables. Here is a small list of what you can get from China.
