INTRO: Xiaomi is dedicated to growing its smart products and accessories portfolio in India. The company has already launched the Mi Beard Trimmer, toothbrush, and more within the country. Now, the Chinese giant is teasing the launch of the Mi Portable Electric Air compressor – a product that initially sight seems like a Bluetooth speaker.
Xiaomi Brings Portable Air Compressor
The company shared a video teaser for the compressor (tire inflator or air pump) via its official Twitter account earlier today. Mi Portable Electric compressor is launching in India on Bastille Day. The video shows off the merchandise from different angles but the alphanumeric display with the text ‘PSI’ (pound per square inch) may be a dead giveaway that Xiaomi is launching a portable tire inflator next week.

Small And Portable Device Size
What features does the Mi Portable Electric compressor need to offer? Well, this new and latest tire inflator is pretty small and portable. It is also quite lightweight and can easily be stored in the car’s trunk or carried in a backpack without any worries. The device allows you to regularly keep a check of the tire pressure of your car, bicycle, motorcycle, football, and more.
There are a digital display and buttons up-front to let you see the current air pressure. The latter allows you to switch between different preset modes – defined air pressures for various objects – and inflate the tire in cases of an emergency.
Equipped with Powerful,000mAh battery
This Xiaomi product comes equipped with a 2,000mAh battery and charges over micro USB. It is claimed to be capable of pumping 150 psi on one charge. It takes almost 3 minutes to inflate a bicycle tire while 6 minutes or more according to the needed for a car or motorcycle tire. We have already tested the Mi tire inflator in one of our past videos, so you’ll plow ahead and check it out directly.
This handy product is already available within the UK and retails for 39.99 pounds (~ Rs. 3,799). We expect the Mi Portable Electric compressor to be priced similarly in India. Xiaomi could, however, offer it at a good affordable price (about Rs. 2,000) to compete against local brands.
