There are a lot of offerings in the market when it comes to an Air Purifier, however, the latest one from Xiaomi i.e. the Xiaomi Mi Air Purifiers 2 is one of the most affordable options out there. Now first up, lets start with the price and availability. This air purifier cost 9999 INR, but they are not readily available. In typical Xiaomi fashion, you have to go through the flash sale kind of thing, and well, we all know that it is not the most easiest route to take. With that said, the price is really good for all the features it has. So if you are in need for one, then the Xiaomi Mi Air Purifier 2 is your best bet. Now let’s talk about the build quality and design. It is fairly well built. It is completely plastic, but it feels premium. So if you do touch it, you will not feel like it is a cheaply built air purifier. In terms of design, though, you may have mixed opinion about this. I personally feel that between a range of air purifiers available in the market, it is definitely not the prettiest. But that doesn’t mean it is the ugliest thing either. It is fair to the eyes; the color is great, and above all, it fairly blends in the surrounding. In fact, it will attract some attention and people will ask you about it.
Xiaomi Mi Air Purifier 2 also has a bunch of smart features built in. It features a Wi-Fi module, and hence it connects to your network with the help of that. And it helps you control it via an App. It also has an air quality sensor which constantly measures the air quality of your room and then adjusts the setting of your air purifier accordingly. You also get a temperature and humidity sensor, and it will tell you how much power consumption is happening as well. This air purifier works across voltages and it can work with 110V and also 220V here in India. The filter is a HEPA based cylindrical air filter which works for particulate matter 2.5 and also for pollen, bacteria, etc. It is one of the most efficient HEPA based Air filter that we have found and it will also filter out odor from your room as well. The filter needs to be changed ever so often, and they are available for the price of 2999 INR again from the Xiaomi website. This air purifier will deliver upto 210 Cubic meters of per hour. This is not just any air, but this is clean air. This is called the CADR or clean air delivery rate. It will also work for area upto 200 feet which are quite great. The good thing about this is the cylindrical air filter; that means that it will pull in air fro all sides and throws clean air out from the top.
This design is really good and also the top doesn’t get dirty at all. Also, the plastic outside is really easy to clean, and they don’t get the patchy yellow stain as you would think it would. You also get a 1.8m long cord with it, and one of the features of the app includes remotely turning it on and off. You can also set it to an auto-mode where it can automatically detect the particulate matter and start cleaning the air. There is also a LED light which changes from green to yellow to red depending on the quality of the air. On your app, you will also get constant pm 2.5 levels. Typically a filter should last from 3 months to 6 months, so the price of 2999 INR is fair. So if you are in the market for an Air purifier, then the Xiaomi Mi Air Purifier 2 is a really great option which i will recommend, not just because of the air filter efficiency but also because of all the smart features.
