It is written in Chinese, but detailed illustrations allow you to easily deal with the connection of the device.
Bucket can be kept constantly included in the outlet. If this option does not fit you, you can simply periodically charge it. Built-in battery (2000 mA · h) runs about 45 days. To fully fill the charge, it takes 10 hours. During recharging, there is an internal illumination. When the process ends, it turns off.
The model is called Xiaomi Townew T1 Smart Trash. Bucket made of plastic, has a rectangular shape with rounded edges. Dimensions of the device 40.2x28x24 cm. It should be noted that the bucket should remain free space for at least 70 cm. Otherwise, the lid will not be able to fully open. So if you plan to put a bucket under the sink, make sure the places are enough.
The container is hermetically closed. Its volume is 15.5 liters. Size can be called average, but it is quite enough for domestic use.
Bucket performed in minimalistic modern design. The manufacturer offers models in two colors: white and black. Both versions of matte.
And there are two specifications. The first has rubberized legs, pallet (in case of garbage flow) and 3 LEDs on the inner surface of the cover. The second option is cheaper. The pallet and legs are not here, but there are 6 LEDs.
Principle of operation
When a person comes to the bucket and makes a hand to him, the motion sensor works. The lid opens. This allows you to quit trash inside. When the hand is cleaned, the sensor tracks it. The device is closed.
The automation works only when moving above the lid (sensitivity of the sensor – 30-35 cm). And if you, for example, are used to throwing a crumpled paper from afar, here this number will not pass. We will have to approach the device.
In the process of opening / closing the lid there is a small noise. According to users, he is a quiet and completely unprofitable. It is worth noting that If there is something that interferes with the lid movement in the trajectory of the lid, the process will automatically stop the process. Therefore, put the tank in a small locker and throwing the garbage into a half-open container will not work.
When filling in the bucket, activate the automatic package. To do this, click on the button. The upper part of the device leans. There is a beep. Hermetically packaged package can be taken. Then the container is automatically closed. Bag change occurs.
After removing the bag, the fan is activated. With it, a new package blows. Due to vacuum, polyethylene is evenly distributed over the walls of the container.
Management bucket TowNew T1 is carried out using two buttons. That is located on the back wall, includes a device. The one is on the front of the container, is programmed into several options for action:
- One press – opening the lid and disable automation, including the motion sensor (this mode allows you to change the cartridge)+
- Repeated pressing – closing the lid and switching on the sensor+
- Long retention (4 seconds) – shift of the garbage bag.
Cartridge with replaceable bags is installed on the cover from the inside. Garbage packaging can occur in two methods.
- In the usual situation, the package seats occurs inside the tank. After the procedure, the cover opens, a beep sounds.
- If the package is full, the upper part is raised and captures all the garbage. Only after that the packaging is carried out in open mode.
Advantages of bucket TowNew T1 is obvious:
- The device is characterized by ease of use (to deal with the connection and the principle of work can each)+
- Contact contact with garbage, disappears the need to manually tie a package, change it to a new one (everything happens in automatic mode)+

The disadvantages include only the high cost of a “smart” bucket. But numerous advantages fully justify the pricing policy of the company.
Many buyers the device seemed interesting and helpful. Users note that bucket exploitation is simple and quite pleasant. And inclusion and installation of cartridges does not cause any difficulties. At the same time, the person remains only to take out the garbage, the rest of the aggregate does himself.
