What the OkaySou AirMic4S filter cleans
- Pet dander
- Pet hair
- Gases: formaldehyde, ammonia, VOCs
When you need to replace your filter, they have four different kinds you can choose from, depending on what you need. It comes with the pet filter as the default but then you can also choose between filters that focus on germs, toxins, or odors. The ultra pre-filter is washable and can capture pet hair, which so far I have found ideal for the two dogs in my apartment. This filter can clean air up to 2x per hour in a room size of 580 sq.ft / 3x per hour in 300 sq.ft / 5x per hour in 150 sq.ft. – so that should be a good estimate for how long you need to run it, if you choose to turn it on and off as needed.
Overall use of the Okaysou AirMic4S
There are a few things I wish this purifier had in comparison to some other purifiers I’ve tested. For one, I wish there was an air quality sensor on it when I know the air is clean so I can turn it off for a bit. I didn’t notice too much of a drop in noise when I switched it to “night mode” outside of all the colors going off. If you have a bigger space, you’ll most likely need to look into a bigger unit since this only cleans so much air at a given time, even with the high setting. The buttons aren’t raised so you can’t operate it in the complete dark, but that’s not too much of a big deal.
Outside of those things, I tested it out thoroughly for air cleaning (I have a few handheld air quality sensors) and it did clean my air in the time frame it said. I have noticed better breathing and less itchy eyes from using it, which has been essential with the smoke from the western fires currently flying through my city over the past month. However, I wouldn’t say it’s a strong air purifier. Even after running it for a bit on it’s own, the room doesn’t get as fully clean as I would like the air to be.
The design is sleek and it blends in well for most spaces. It won’t look like an eye sore, which is nice depending on your space. It’s just over a foot or so high, so it’s pretty compact.
