We check out this air purifier made for cars.
Air quality has somehow diminished over the years thanks to multiple factors. In places where the concentration of such particles is high, it’s always advisable to get an air purifier so you can know that you’re breathing clean air. But what about in your vehicle? Recent research suggests that air quality inside your car have more pollutants since it’s a closed cabin – and this is where the Cabin Air P2i comes in.
The Cabin Air P2i from Blueair is an air purifier made specifically for cars. Made with HEPASilent Technology, it can filter various particles like bacteria, viruses, and other allergens as small as 0.1 microns. The box comes with a power adapter that you attach through the cigarette lighter along with an air filter. There’s also a velcro strap to help you attach the unit behind the seat’s headrest.
It was stated that the Cabin Air P2i is able to clean the air inside your car in about 5 minutes for small sedans and around 8 to 11 minutes for bigger SUVs. After you’ve set up the Cabin Air P2i that includes placing the air filter inside, you can then download the accompanying free Blueair Friend app available for Android and iOS devices to monitor the air quality. The app pairs with the Cabin Air P2i and will give you an overview of the air quality.
The app regularly shows the air quality inside the vehicle (giving you a measurement based on PM2.5) with a note telling you if the air around the area is polluted or clean. I tried it on a dusty day driving around with the windows open and then closing it to see what the air quality is like – just what I had expected, I got a ‘polluted’ reading from the app. I then turned on the Cabin Air P2i and after about 5 minutes, the air quality has improved with a ‘good’ rating.
Blueair’s Cabin Air P2i doesn’t come cheap though – it comes with a starting price of 899 AED. But if you at it, it’s a small price to pay if you want to clean air surrounding you not just in your home but also in your car.
