INTRO: Since the COVID-19 cases in India are still on a steep rise, Xiaomi has decided to offer a new product to further the safety of the citizens. The company has launched the Mi KN95 protective mask in India. It joins the Mi AirPOP mask, which launched back in January last year.
The Mi KN95 mask arrives with four layers of protection. You have an inner layer and an outer layer of non-woven material that helps filter bigger particles. The two middle layers are made from melt-blown fabric for bacteria and little particle filtration.
The company boasts that the mask offers over 95% Bacterial Filter Efficiency (BFE) and 95% particle filtration efficiency. Do not get scared of these big words. It simply means the mask is capable of keeping out dust, smog, and bacteria as small as 3 microns. The four-layer filtration system also ensures easy breathability, which is basically important if you’re getting to wear the mask for prolonged hours.
Xiaomi further talks about the snug fit of the Mi KN95 mask. It provides a secure 360-degree fit and weighs just around 5 grams, because of the non-woven fabric material within the mask. You will also find a nose conforming pin which will take the form of the nose to stop air leakage and fogging from glasses at an equivalent time. The mask also has softer ear loops to permit users to wear it for extended durations with none strain or pain in or around the ears.
If you’re getting to buy new face masks, then a pair of Mi KN95 masks has been priced at Rs. 250 in India. You can also get the 5-pack for Rs. 600 from Xiaomi’s website right here.
