Lemma 13.31.5. Let $\mathcal{A}$ be an abelian category. Let $T$ be a set and for each $t \in T$ let $I_ t^\bullet $ be a K-injective complex. If $I^ n = \prod _ t I_ t^ n$ exists for all $n$, then $I^\bullet $ is a K-injective complex. Moreover, $I^\bullet $ represents the product of the objects $I_ t^\bullet $ in $D(\mathcal{A})$.

**Proof.**
Let $K^\bullet $ be an complex. Observe that the complex

has cohomology $\mathop{\mathrm{Hom}}\nolimits _{K(\mathcal{A})}(K^\bullet , I^\bullet )$ in the middle. Similarly, the complex

computes $\mathop{\mathrm{Hom}}\nolimits _{K(\mathcal{A})}(K^\bullet , I_ t^\bullet )$. Next, observe that we have

as complexes of abelian groups by our choice of $I$. Taking products is an exact functor on the category of abelian groups. Hence if $K^\bullet $ is acyclic, then $\mathop{\mathrm{Hom}}\nolimits _{K(\mathcal{A})}(K^\bullet , I_ t^\bullet ) = 0$, hence $C_ t$ is acyclic, hence $C$ is acyclic, hence we get $\mathop{\mathrm{Hom}}\nolimits _{K(\mathcal{A})}(K^\bullet , I^\bullet ) = 0$. Thus we find that $I^\bullet $ is K-injective. Having said this, we can use Lemma 13.31.2 to conclude that

and indeed $I^\bullet $ represents the product in the derived category. $\square$
