The first impression that the thermal cup gives to people is its huge body and small capacity, which can only be used at home, but it is inconvenient to carry around. With the development and progress of science and technology, the size of the thermal cup is getting smaller and smaller. When talking about a good quality thermal cup, a lot of people may think of a brand Thermos, but an ordinary Thermos cup costing you a few hundreds, while the average domestic brand thermal cup is either poor insulation or bad design and inconvenient to carry around. Now, let’s welcome the joining of new members in Mijia products portfolio – Mi Cup.
