Now breathe Pure Air - Xiaomi unveils Mi Air Purifier 2 in India

Design wise Mi Air Purifier 2 got a compact design, weighs under 4.8 kgs and looks elegant in any room setup. It got a 360-degree cylindrical shape for the filter that takes air from every direction and removes dust, hair and other larger floating particles.

The Mi Air Purifier 2 got triple layers of purification, a primary filter, high-density EPA filter and activated carbon filter. The primary filter can filter out large particles like dust, floating particles, floccules and hair. The EPA filter removes reparable particles like the PM2.5 and PM0.3 dust particles, plant pollen, pet hair etc.

Finally, the carbon filter absorbs harmful gases and can effectively absorb harmful chemicals such as formaldehyde, benzene and ammonia.

For circulating the pure air, the Mi Air Purifier 2 comes with a single motor with dual mixed booster fans. Still, it’s highly energy efficient, using only 4.8W in normal mode. Also, the whole unit is ultra-quiet and unobtrusive. With its high Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) of up to 310m3/h, the Mi Air Purifier 2 can quickly circulate purified air in a 21m2 room within 10 minutes.

So how Mi Air Purifier 2 works? The whole wind flow in Mi Air Purifier 2 is aerodynamically optimised. First, the air suction takes places at the base, which passes through the triple layers purification system. Then the purified air is pushed forcefully through the top using a pressurised system.

The Mi Air Purifier 2 can be easily controlled by the Mi Home app (available for both Android and iOS devices). It can turn your phone into a remote to power on, power off, switch modes and adjust speed. It also checks outdoor and indoor air quality in real time and automatically adjusts the speed of the air purifier’s motor.
