Does the job, if any can?
Small quite unit in a small office… Left on permanently. Extra filter pack bought for a years time. Easy to operate. One of those stuffy office items that does help. The unit is four stars out of five.
Bought it brand new from their website and decided to try it out if it works.
Smoked a cigarette in a car with windows all shut turn on ionmax ion330.
Came back in 30mins, car was literally still in the same state, smelly and foggy. 1hr later, still the same. 2 hrs later, same smell.
6 HOURS later, not foggy anymore but still THE EXACT SAME SMELL. It wasn't visibly foggy anymore most likely because smokes particles has fallen and settled. As far as odors, it has DEFINITELY NOT IMPROVED!
Comes with car plug
I bought the “Ionmax Ion330 Mini Hepa Air Purifier and Ioniser” a few months ago from “ecolife Australia” for $127 free shipping.
I bought the unit to use in my car while on the way to my specialist as we have to travel through a long underground tunnel (Burnley tunnel in VIC), even with the windows and air vents closed the traffic fumes still come into the cabin and you can smell and taste them, which forces me to wear a respirator in the car. I was a little sceptical that it was up to the job but my health forced me to try it.
I bought this model over others as it has a multiple step filter system but most importantly it has a carbon filter that is replaceable. I found replacement filters on ebay for $25 free delivery.
We have used it twice through the tunnel so far and didn’t realise until we were well out of the tunnel that we didn’t smell or taste any fumes. The traffic was not a standstill, it was flowing pretty well, it would be interesting to see if the machine works as well in a standstill situation with fumes piling up in the tunnel, but normal conditions it works extremely well and I am marking “Ionmax Ion330 Mini Hepa Air Purifier and Ioniser” for my use as a success.
I think it would be advantageous for people with asthma or who are sensitive to chemicals to try an air purifier with a carbon filter such as one like this.
It comes with an Australian car plug (for the cigarette lighter) and a plug for the house if you want to use it in a room. It comes with Velcro strips to secure it to the dash board so it does not slip off. It is a nice design so does not look horrible in the car. It works very well. You can buy replacement filters for it.
