Mi Air Purifier 2C: Specs and Features

Mi Air Purifier 2 lineup has been quite popular in India over the past couple of years. It helped users tackle the growing air pollution woes in the country but it was priced at a slightly retail tag – around Rs 10,000. Well, Xiaomi now aims to make its Mi Air Purifier accessible to more users with the Mi Air Purifier 2C.

Just like the Mi Water Purifier, the new air purifier has been designed for India – in India. This is an India-specific product that’s been stripped off the display on the front and the plastic body, as well as the minimalistic design, has been retained. It features the dual-filtration technology backed by a true HEPA filter that’s easily replaceable.
