Xiaomi has officially launched a new water purifier that is nicknamed “Lentils”. It is priced at 999 yuan ($141) and is currently on pre-sale on Xiaomi Mall. Those who avail themselves of the product during the presale gets a 50 yuan discount.
The Mi Water Purifier “Lentils” derives its alias from the lentils plant as the gadget is kind of designed like the Lentils pod with the three purification chambers arranged like seeds inside the pod. The water purifier is quite portable, and can easily fit under the kitchen sink. It comes with a dimension of 471x452x170mm. There is also a mini-water tank that is just 3L in volume.
The Xiaomi Mi Lentils Water Purifier uses reverse osmosis (RO) filtration technology with four different purification chambers. The water travels through high-density folding PP cotton in the first chamber and moves to the second chamber containing activated carbon rod. The third chamber contains a reverse osmosis filter and then another activated carbon rod chamber. The water that comes out is of packaging-grade drinking water standards.
The water production efficiency to wastewater ratio is 1:1 meaning none of the water is wasted. The water output rate is 1.3L/minute and so with a 3L tank, the gadget can release drinking water. The total daily water production is about 47 cans which can meet the daily needs of a home of around 3 to 5 persons.
In addition, the Xiaomi Mi Water Purifier Lentils supports the kitchen-type installation and comes with a separate faucet which can be installed free of charge. Of course, this is exclusive to China.
