Xiaomi Mi Air Purifier 2C: Key Features
Xiaomi is the market leader in India’s smartphone business but it aspires to be more than a smartphone brand. The company describes itself as an IoT brand and even calls itself an internet company. The Mi Air Purifier 2C is part of that product strategy where it aims to strengthen its presence in the IoT product segment. With India preparing to wake up to air pollution in the coming weeks, the Mi Air Purifier 2C sounds like a compelling product for home users.
In terms of features, the Mi Air Purifier 2C is capable of cleaning indoor air pollution in less than 10 minutes. It also relies on dual filtration technology like other Mi Air Purifier models. Xiaomi claims that the HEPA filter used on the device can kill 99.97 percent particles up to 0.3 microns. There is also a 360-degree suction for maximum purification and clean air delivery rate of 350 square meter per hour. It also shows real-time air quality indicator and consumers can easily change the filter.
