What is a new gadget that almost every car comes with today? Is it the head-up display or is it a digital instrument panel? Instead, the only device cars come with is an air purifier. Some are built-in, while others, in many cases, are provided as a no-cost accessory.
The importance given to the device is profound, with the pandemic being prolonged and pollution in big cities remaining high. However, what can car owners, new or old, that do not have an air purifier do? The simple option is to buy one.
5 car air fresheners for indian conditions
1. Sharp FP-JC2M-B
The air purifier is designed to fit in the armrest of a large car as it is quite a large unit and has a coverage area of 25 square feet. Sharp says the FP-JC2M-B comes with its patented Plasmacluster technology, a HEPA filter, an ionizer and is said to offer a clean air delivery rate (CADR) or 0.54 cubic meters.
2. Atlanta Healthcare MotoPure Ultra
Atlanta Healthcare’s MotoPure Ultra air purifier is an affordable option that comes with a very stylish design. Can be placed on the dashboard or on the back shelf. This filter, it must be said, uses a 4-stage I-cluster filtration technology that comprises an antibacterial protection, HEPA-13 filter, activated carbon shield and an ionizer. It also has dual fan technology and is claimed to purify the air in 10 minutes.
3. Nebelr car air purifier ionizer
This air purifying ionizer, which can be powered using a USB port, can reduce PM2.4 particles, smoke, benzene and formaldehyde. Interestingly, it does not use HEPA filters and instead makes use of an ‘advanced’ air ionization technology. When it comes to power consumption, it consumes 5W, which is decent at best.
4. Philips GoPure Compact 110
The GoPure Compact 110 car air purifier is said to clean the air inside the car in 15 minutes, eliminating ultrafine particles <0.3µm. It will automatically turn on and neutralize toxic gases as well (the claim is up to 99 percent).
5. Sharp IG-GC2E
The Sharp IG-GC2E is designed to fit in a car’s cup holder, which is a boon as unlike the aforementioned model, this one doesn’t take up additional space and is also quite small, comparatively speaking. It also comes with a washable PM10 filter and supposedly collects 80% of dust and pollen, as well as removing microbes. This purifier comes with a two-port USB car adapter.
