Review and a Couple of Life Hacks of Use automatic soap dispenser Xiaomi Mijia MJXSJ01XW. I greet everyone who looked at the light. The review will focus, as you probably already guessed, about a rather interesting , equipped with a foam micro pump and an IR sensor, which reacts in a quarter of a second and produces a certain dose of already foamed “air” soap. There is also information on refilling the soap container. Who cares, you are welcome …

The Xiaomi Mijia MJXSJ01XW Automatic Dispenser comes in a double cardboard box, one of which is shipping:
The inner box is made in light colors, which is typical for most Xiaomi devices:
At the end there are brief specifications, including the model name:
The instruction is short, and even that is all in Chinese:
Let me remind you that the review is a “lightweight” version without liquid soap and four ZMI AA batteries.
The automatic dispenser Xiaomi Mijia MJXSJ01XW is made in the traditional minimalist design for the company, but despite this, it looks very stylish and will decorate any bathroom. In fact, this is the second version of the Xiaomi dispenser:
The dispenser itself consists of two main parts: the dispenser itself and the container for liquid soap. Since the review shows an option without liquid soap and batteries, the container is empty:
Although I’ll be honest, the kit soap smells great. It is worth noting that the “complete” set costs a little more, but is prohibited for transportation by some transport companies, so the Chinese simply drain the soap and take out the batteries so that there are no problems.
There is also a special 2019 version of the Dove Men Care Edition with Dove branded soap, but costs a little more:
The dispenser body is made of white matte plastic, so it easily fits into any interior:
On the top panel there is a touch control button, which is highlighted when the device is operating:
The controls are very simple — a single press turns the device on or off. The main “highlight” is the automatic operation of the dispenser, and all thanks to the infrared sensor hidden under the “nose”:
It is enough just to bring your hand to the “spout”, and the dispenser will immediately dispense a portion of foamed soap in a quarter of a second:
The foam base is produced by a patented pump that produces foam with a gas to liquid ratio of 12: 1.
As for the design, it should be noted that an electric motor is integrated into the dispenser, which is used in many cosmetic devices. At 7000 rpm, the motor works almost silently (noise level within 40 dB), so the device will not distract households:
In addition, this dispenser model is very energy efficient. Power is supplied from four AA elements (fingers). Both 1.2V NiMH batteries and 1.5V saline / alkaline batteries are suitable:
The batteries are located under a special bar that opens by turning a little around its axis:
Four AA batteries will last for approximately 9 months of use.
The second structural element is a container for liquid soap. In my case, it is empty, but closed with a lid just in case:
There is a certain valve-cover under the main cover:
It includes a soap tube, pressure equalization hole (sopun) and a special notch:
On my own I will add that thanks to the tight stops, the valve-cover sits very tightly, which is why there are problems with refilling the container. According to the manufacturer’s intention, users should discard used containers and install new ones. This is exactly what the Chinese do, but the Russian ingenuity considered it wasteful, so see a little life hack for refueling below.
The container is inserted into the dispenser and locked with a slight twist. Then you can use the dispenser:
Dispenser dimensions are 190mm * 98mm:
Quite compact in appearance:
During the existence of this model, many ways have been invented for filling the soap container. There are generally banal ones, for example, drilling a small hole with subsequent processing of the edges from burrs, and after refueling — gluing the hole with tape or electrical tape. The method is simple and working.
Slightly more difficult is drilling a large hole and blocking it with a rubberized flat cover or cuff. Compared to the previous one, it allows you to pour soap through a funnel.
I didn’t reinvent the wheel, since the valve-cover, although it sits tightly enough, is still removable. It can be removed badly because of these stops and two protrusions that prevent it from turning around its axis:
If you received a dispenser with a valve-cap installed, as in my case, then arm yourself with a flat hour screwdriver, plastic spatulas and a regular hair dryer (or hot air gun) to remove it.
Next, you need to warm it up a little and pick it up with a screwdriver. This will help 4 grooves around the perimeter of the valve cover:
The stops are easily squeezed out with plastic spatulas or the same screwdriver:
If you heat this part a little with a hairdryer (at the neck), then it is removed very simply.
After that we buy liquid foam soap or foam soap and simply pour it into a container. It is important to remember that this dispenser is designed to work specifically with foam soap. Of course, you can use regular liquid soap, but then the exit will just be a trickle, not foam.
I use Grass Milana soap in a 5L canister:
This displacement is cost effective compared to liter bottles and there is no overpayment for a manual dispenser. Fill it, you can dilute it with water in a ratio of 4 to 1, install it and enjoy the result:
