Most of the humidifiers available in the market generally use ultrasound or a heater to break down the water, which obviously uses more energy. However, on the other hand, Xiaomi Smartmi Humidifier 2 uses a natural way of humidification to break down the water. The water slowly by parts get stuck on the discs and pushed up by the air flow, without any use of ultrasound or a heater. While using the Xiaomi Humidifier 2, we don’t see any steam or mist around the device. We have used ultrasonic humidifier before and they tend to generate a feeling of the steam bath if a door closes the room. However, with the Xiaomi humidifiers, there’s no such feeling oppositely it feels delightful. Moreover, the humidifier let us set different settings for a comfortable environment. It is said, the humidifier will keep the humidity level we need.
The Xiaomi Humidifier 2 comes with built-in humidity sensors which can also connect via Bluetooth to your smartphone. If you want to have a close eye on the humidity of your room, you can also get an external humidity sensor an place it in another part of your room. It will help you get more efficient moistening of the whole space of the room.
That’s the exact thing we did with our Xiaomi Smartmi Humidifier 2. We place it in our office space that is around 75 sq.m. Even being an ample space, the Xiaomi Humidifier works excellent. Only in the end part of the room, the effectiveness was low otherwise it was all right. Maybe the reason behind it because the office room is not limited to doors, from it there is an arch into a sizable 40m hall and another small room of 15m.
One of the best parts of the device is that you don’t need to disassemble the Xiaomi Smartmi Humidifier 2 for adding the water. The method is straightforward, just pour water from the top. The water level also can be seen from the above without taking any parts out. Now the best part of the Xiaomi humidifier includes its ability to turn on a siren when the water level reaches the top. So you can easily watch your favorite show without any worry from leaking water from the humidifier. You can easily control the Xiaomi humidifier via your smartphone or the physical buttons present on the top of the device. The buttons allow you to select the mode or turn on/off the device. If you want something more advanced, you can also use the Mi HOME app.
We have also calculated the water intake from 0% to 100%. For getting the result, we emptied the humidifier at first then let it fill up until the sirens start beeping, about 4.5 liters of water come in. The Xiaomi Smartmi Humidifier 2 takes around 18 hours to completely blow it out at maximum rate and 28 hours in the auto mode. The result was excellent, and you only need to fill up it once a day.
If you don’t clean the Humidifier for a long time you will get result like the picture below. The water turns yellow with the dust. This is the same air we breathe normally. It is generally required to wash the tray better if once a week. It is really very convenient to clean the humidifier and we also consider it a huge plus over other usual humidifiers available in the market. This picture clearly shows we all need to have a humidifier like this for our home and family. After all, clean air is one of the conditions of longevity, like water.
