Xiaomi Air Purifier 3 Review: Performance

In terms of performance, the Xiaomi Mijia air purifier 3 has made a lot of improvements over the previous generation of air purifier 2S, for example, the CARD value of particulate matter has been increased from 310 cubic meters/h to 400 cubic meters/h, an increase of 29%.

The lower touch keys in turn can achieve automatic shift, sleep mode, low speed, medium speed, high speed, favorite file switch, the peripheral light color will be red, orange and green with the size of the PM2.5 value.

Note: When the indoor PM2.5 value is greater than 150, it is displayed in red, indicating that the air quality is poor at this time; when the PM2.5 is 75-150, the indicator light is orange, indicating that the air quality is general; when less than 75, it is green, indicating that the air quality is excellent.


Both sides of the Xiaomi Mijia air purifier 3 fuselage and front of the fuselage are designed with dense small hole air inlets to ensure that the surrounding air enters the purifier interior with a large flow rate from three sides to filter.

The air outlet is designed as a large area of grid installation, which is conducive to the rapid and uniform transportation of air flow. Simply put, the purifier is the process of pumping air into the interior through the following three air ducts, filtering the filter element and then flowing out from above to form a 360-degree air eddy current to gradually purify the indoor air. Mijia air purifier 3 can transport up to 6660L of clean air per minute, the purification efficiency is still relatively fast.


The Xiaomi Mijia air purifier 3 fuselage is equipped with a high-precision laser sensor to monitor the tuyere, which can detect tiny particles and dust, and feed back the PM2.5 value in real time.


On the left is a temperature and humidity sensor that monitors temperature and humidity in the air. Unfortunately, the device does not have formaldehyde-related sensors, such as formaldehyde values, which are critical for newly decorated or baby families. In addition, there is a screen switch button at the top to adjust the display brightness of the screen.

The cover plate on the back of the Mijia air purifier 3 can be easily removed through the upper hand buckle, and a contact switch is designed at the connecting part of the cover plate, that is to say, even when the purifier is working, once you open the cover plate, it will immediately cut off the power supply to ensure safety.


After opening the cover plate, you can see the barrel-shaped filter element, under the filter element is a spring base, a little downward pressure can pull out the filter element.

Then the quality of the filter element will directly affect the air purification effect, Mijia air purifier 3 is still an integrated design, the advantage is that the cost is relatively cheap, the disadvantage is that once the end of the service life must be replaced as a whole.
