Xiaomi has finally launched its smart home appliance- the Xiaomi Mi Air Purifier 2 in the Indian market. The Air Purifier 2 is said to be smaller, lighter and more efficient compared to the predecessor that was launched in China in 2014.
The device is equipped with a single motor and dual mixed booster fans. It is claimed to be capable of removing up to 99.7 percent of the PM2.5 particulates in less than an hour. The purifier has three layer of filters Pre Filter, HEPA Filter and Carbon Filter to purify the air. It has a Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) of 388m3/h.
The Air Purifier 2 is said to be 58 percent more power efficient and 11 percent quieter compared to the predecessor. The Air purifier 2 weighs 4.8 kgs (with filters), has dimensions of 520x240mm and is much smaller compared to 735x260mm of the previous generation purifier.
It supports Wi-Fi connectivity and also comes with air quality sensor, temperature sensor and a humidity sensor.

There is a cylindrical filter towards the bottom of the purifier with vents on three sides for better air intake. Depending on the usage, one can survive for around three to six months. Once the filter lasts, it can be changed easily.
