While you\u2019re on the lookout for the best air purifier, you might want to consider checking out the best personal air purifier. And while you\u2019re checking out the personal air purifiers, you may want to put the Wein Mini-Mate AS1080i on your watchlist. It\u2019s one of the most portable devices we\u2019ve seen, and you won\u2019t incur any additional costs ny having to replace expensive HEPA filters.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Wein Mini-Mate AS180i\r\nThe Wein Mini-Mate AS180i Air Purifiers are a little guy in a big gutsy world, but they are still able to hold their own just fine. Although it can\u2019t destroy airborne contaminants, it can remove them from your personal breathing zone with remarkable efficiency and power.\r\n\r\nSpeed\/Power\r\nThe AS1080i Wearable Air Purifier emits an absolutely astounding 120 trillion ions per second for cleaner fresher personal air purification in and around your breathing zone. Unfortunately, the battery life isn\u2019t as stellar, with most customer reviews placing it around seven to eight hours. Consider the AirTamer A310 for something much longer lasting.\r\nEfficiency\r\nIt\u2019s hard to establish the range of effect that a personal air purification device is capable of considering it just propels air into your personal breathing zone. And as long as you\u2019re wearing it, it should do its job just fine.While there are no direct specs given, 15 square feet is usually the normal range, but this would just be a guess.. If you would like something a little wider, check out the Dyson Cool Me.\r\nVersatility\r\nThe great thing about personal air purifiers, most of them, is that they\u2019re filterless, so you\u2019ll be saving on that cost. The 1080i is no different. Further, the solid platinum plasma emitter clears the air of allergens, smoke, germs, and dust for allergen-free breathing. If you\u2019re looking for a device specifically designed for smoke, the Smoke Buddy Air Filter should do the trick.\r\nDurability\r\nThe AS1080i weighs only about 1.5 ounces, so it should be no problem to wear around your neck while you\u2019re on the go. In fact, it\u2019s one of the lightest and most portable devices we\u2019ve seen so far. It also comes with a strap to hang around your neck and a USB charging cable. If you\u2019d like to not set it near you and just close to you that\u2019s fine too, although it\u2019s effectiveness may decrease just a little.\r\nValue\r\nThe AS1080i has an option of a gold-plated stainless steel collector\u2019s edition. It\u2019s pretty much the same as the standard edition, but it\u2019s always nice to have the option for variety's sake. Further, the unit also comes with a one-year warranty. It\u2019s not that long, I\u2019ll admit, but it\u2019s still one-year longer than most other personal air purifiers offer.\r\nWein Mini-Mate AS180i Wrap Up\r\nIt\u2019s a shame that the battery life is so bad, and it\u2019s a baffling decision that the range of effect isn\u2019t given, but the Wein Mini-Mate AS1080i still has a lot going for it that warrants your consideration. The one-year warranty alone is enough to at least get you to test the waters if you\u2019ve been considering a personal air purifier.
