Is your air around your room stale? Does it always seem dusty?
A lot of people don’t believe in air purifiers. But what air purifiers can do is clean up your air even though the city you live in is polluted. Looking at this trend, Xiaomi has come up with the Xiaomi Air Purifier.
We did an unboxing and a review and here are our thoughts!
This Air Purifier helps clean out the fine particles and pollutants that get lodged in our lungs and make it difficult to breathe.
Xiaomi Air Purifier Review
Inside the Box
Inside the box are the instruction manual, the purifier and a plug point.
The design of the Air Purifier is nothing short of beautiful. This looks like a product that comes out of Braun. It’s long and shaped like a rectangular cube. This is also a very light device and isn’t that heavy.
It’s designed in such a way to attract bad air from all sides of the device and the top air diffuses the cleaner air.
If you are thinking, if this will suit your decor or not, the answer is absolute yes. It’s a non-obtrusive piece that will blend well in any setting.
Function and Use
Basically, this is not only a pollutant remover but also removes any bad smells in the environment.
When you turn it on, there are two modes – Auto and Manual.
For normal situations, the Auto mode is suggested. It basically absorbs the bad air from the three sides. This is slightly different from the normal air purifiers that absorb air only from one side.
Now, this makes it pretty special, because if you keep it next to where your sitting, you will have 360-degrees of protection and clean air.
Inside the purifier are three layers of absorbents. The first absorbent sucks out all the small particles in the air, that goes straight to your lungs.
The second absorbent removes and bad smells in the vicinity and the third absorbent removes any formaldehyde from the air around you.
The best part? If you are allergic to stuff like pollen, pet fur or other irritants, this Air Purifier will clear it out.
Filters and other features
As the filters inside get mucky due to the pollutants sticking to them, they need to be replaced, they ideally should be replaced once in 6 months. They can be bought easily, but are a tad expensive.
It also is one of the quietest air purifiers out there. Why is this important? Try sucking in air through your nose. That sound of suction is pretty loud. It’s, even more, louder for devices which are absorbing a lot of air.
For that reason, the Mi Air Purifier is top class!
How do you measure air quality?
Now, this is a common question when it comes to air purifiers. How do you measure it?
There are pollution levels and the device itself can read it. You can use the smartphone to check the pollution level in your room. If you run this device for about 15 to 20 minutes, the air quality dramatically improves and gets better by 50%
Like most Xiaomi devices, this is a smart device. Which means you can pair it with a phone and measure the pollution levels in your home or office. This is an important tool to help you decide whether to turn your purifier or not.
The app also lets you schedule the times.
The Mi Air Purifier not only does its job but quantifies it. It shows you the pollution levels in the area around you. The smart app feature lets you control the timings of the device. It’s 3-way absorption technology ensures that a large area of your home or office is purified and that too within minutes.
It’s very light and looks beautiful and will suit any home anywhere. The filters last about 6 months and the only downside is, they are a bit expensive.
But the device itself is very reasonably priced and in true Xiaomi style, it’s value for money.
