Gone are the days when we could say rather cheesy dialogues such as, “love is in the air” while breathing in relatively clean, fresh air. Now, the only that we seem to care about being in the air are harmful pollutants: SPM, Carbon Dioxide, Carbon Monoxide and dust.When it comes to catering the needs of people at large Xiaomi has a tendency to grab the spotlight and it has done so, yet again, by launching the Cloth Pear Fresh Mi Air Mask.
Cloth Pear Fresh Air Mask comes with a built in filter which promises to filter up to 99% of impurities giving you a safer breath. The mask is made of high-fibre textile and the inner housing is made of high-quality polyester making the mask as light as nearly 50.5 grams. What makes this device truly special is the air filter present at the right side of the mask which consists of a thin fan and a N95 filter. The speed of the fan can be controlled by the wearer. The N95 comprising of four composite layers of nanoparticles is present below the fan. After prolonged use, one can replace the carbon filters.
How is it better?
All in all, it is more cost effective. Let’s take India for an example. One normal face mask costs nearly 20 rupees there and this device is expected to be launched at 900 INR in the country. This means that one can buy somewhere around 45 air protection masks by the same money but the average effective period of a common face mask is 5-6 hours. That means if one has a 9-to-5 job and is spending over an hour in commutation then ideally he has to use at least two masks per day whereas the Mi Mask lasts up to 6 hours on an average. The Mi Air Mask is powered by a Lithium-ion battery which can be recharged over a micro USB connection and lasts 6 hours on an average on a single charge.
Therefore taking into consideration the reusability of the Mi Mask, it is clearly more economically feasible than other products of its kind available right now. Au Contraire to popular belief, there is a difference between air purification and air filtration. Thereby, another differentiating factor of the Mi Air Mask is its ability to purify air along with filtering it.
For the ones who care more about how they look, the Mi Air Mask comes in space gray giving it a class of its own. Therefore, it allows one to breath cleaner air in an aesthetically pleasing way.
The 9/10 user ratings speak for themselves and for the tech.
Suffice it to say, with a threefold increase being seen in the sales of air protection masks especially in India, right now would be a pretty good time for Xiaomi to launch the Mi Air Mask in India.
