Xiaomi YI Camera Power User Accessories Pack Review: CONTENTS and FEATURES
Mounting the camera inside the waterproof case is easy. The case lock is made of plastic but it does look like it’s going to break any time soon.
The last items that are included are a few mounting brackets and they are pretty much self-explanatory.
Xiaomi YI Camera Power User Accessories Pack Review: CONCLUSIONS
So there you have it, the power user accessories pack for the Xioami YI camera. For under $40 you are getting two essential upgrades – the display and a generous external battery. They are both easy to install and remove it and so far everything works very well.
Also, there is another essential piece – the waterproof housing, which allows you to use the camera underwater. You can do it either without any accessories attached to the camera or with the LCD display, or with the external battery. I’ve tested it several times underwater already and I have no complaints about it.
All in all, this accessory pack is an ideal upgrade to your Xiaomi YI camera and since everything has worked fine during my testing time, I believe it is worth the price of $40. [source]
