Although this excellent model only features a single type of filtration as it uses a UV-C light, its performance is hard to top. This is due to the fact that the UV-C light is actually incredibly effective at eliminating airborne particles, bacteria, and germs, boasting the capability of purifying the air of up to 99.9% of impurities. If you did not know this, there are many hospitals worldwide that use UV-C lights to sanitize rooms and tools, so it’s easy to understand how effective this technology actually is. In addition to eliminating the impurities and particles that it finds, it can actually inhibit the growth of fungi, bacteria, and other microbiological organisms. Best of all, it is capable of removing unpleasant odors as well, doing great when it comes to eliminating pet, cooking, mildew, and smoke odors.

Unfortunately, there isn’t much to say when it comes to this model’s features as it doesn’t actually have any. It features a single fan speed, so you won’t be able to choose lower or higher purifying speeds. Also, it doesn’t feature a timer, an automatic shut-off or a restart mode, nor does it come with air quality sensors. But this shouldn’t affect your opinion about it as this is common for plug-in models due to the fact that they are intended for purifying the air in smaller spaces, having compact designs that don’t really allow the addition of intricate features. For a product of its type, this model is actually of a high quality, and this is all that matters.

What makes it such a raging success is the fact that this plug-in unit is compact and ideal to take with you wherever you go in order to ensure that the air you breathe is clean. It measures 3″ x 3.2″ x 7.5″ and it weighs only 1 pound, being easy to understand why it’s the ideal option for those who want a portable air purifier. It’s made with durable materials, and the white housing makes it a discrete addition to any room that it’s placed in. Obviously, due to the fact that it has such a small body and because it’s a plug-in model, it doesn’t come with intricate buttons that would have allowed you to change settings or a display that would have shown valuable information about the quality of the air in the room. Nonetheless, the lack of these features doesn’t really affect its performance, so you shouldn’t mind the fact that they’re missing. What you should do is to appreciate the easy operation that it boasts, all that it requires being to be plugged in for it to start operating.
