Xiaomi has launched its digital tire inflator, the Mi Portable Electric Air Compressor, in India.
With a light and compact design, the device features a built-in lithium-ion battery which allows it to work without an external power source and can be easily charged with any regular power bank.
According to reports, the Mi Portable Electric Air Compressor can fill a car tire in six minutes and a bicycle tire in three minutes.
It also comes with a digital display to check tire pressure and an LED light to facilitate working in the dark.
Available on Xiaomi’s crowdfunding platform, the device currently carries a discounted price tag of Rs. 2,299.
While shipping begins from August 10, the device is expected to be priced at Rs. 3,499 after the crowdfunding campaign is over.
The device comes in a standard black colour option.
When fully charged, the Mi Portable Electric Air Compressor carries enough power to inflate five car tires or eight bicycle tires.
The device can be pressurized up to 145 PSI – enough for any regular car or bicycle tires.
It doesn’t need a dedicated external power source to work and can be charged with any typical power bank through its Micro-USB port.
The device also comes with a preset pressure control system that allows it to stop at any given PSI.
This feature particularly comes in handy when inflating any sports-related equipment, like a football or a basketball, where the right pressure is invaluable.
