Xiaomi entered the Indian tech market in 2015 and in no time the brand became the lead face in the affordable smartphone list. With the increasing demand and growing popularity, Xiaomi began expanding its wings to other ventures- water purifiers, sportswear, fitness bands, etc. Adding a new product to its catalog, Xiaomi launched the Mi Electric Toothbrush in February.
Xiaomi brought the Mi Electric Toothbrush T300 as a part of its crowdfunding campaign for a price of INR 1,299. The official Mi e-store page currently shows 2723 funded units and 2465 supporters. While the shipment of the electric brush began on March 10, Xiaomi has taken to social media to drop a new hint about the Mi T300 toothbrush.
We are discovering new things about our products every day during the quarantine.
For example, the number of bristles on #MiElectricToothbrush.

“We are discovering new things about our products every day during the quarantine. For example, the number of bristles on #MiElectricToothbrush. It took us a while, but we know the exact count. Do you, Mi fans?” the tweet reads.
Although the tweet doesn’t provide any concrete information, the Mi Electric Toothbrush image shows some mysterious numbers (said to be bristle counts but hard to believe). The tweet could perhaps indicate the product will go live on Mi India e-portal in the coming days or new price of the brush head which is replaceable.
But we will have to wait (for a day or two) until Xiaomi makes some official announcement. Presumptions aside, the new Mi Electric Toothbrush T300 includes a bunch of features like other electric toothbrushes.
Touted to feature Xiaomi’s classic minimalist design, the toothbrush uses DuPont TyneX StaClean bristles that are claimed to clear debris and plaque between the teeth. Available in a single white tone, the brush is IPX7-rated water resistant which means you can dip the electric brush in water.

Xiaomi also notes that the brush uses magnetic levitation sonic motor that produces up to 31,000 vibrations in a minute for effective cleansing. Unlike the global version, the Indian variant doesn’t bundle the smart features like app connectivity that allow adjusting brush strength or provide oral hygiene data on your device.
However, it has two brushing modes- a Dual-Pro brush mode to match your preference and an EquiClean Auto Timer that pauses for 30 seconds after every 2 minutes to remind you to switch sides.
The battery on the Xiaomi Mi Electric Toothbrush is rated to deliver up to 25 days of usage. The brush head is claimed to last for up to four months. The charging base of the toothbrush has a USB port that can be connected to the compatible charging device. The Mi Electric Toothbrush is not listed on the Mi store page but perhaps it might come on the list soon given the crowdfunding project has surpassed the progress bar (100%) to 272 percent.
