Moonbow car air purifier: Makes a difference?

Written by Parichay Malvankar

In a plethora of accessories, here is another one which presents itself as more useful than others. The Moonbow car air purifier is a small car accessory to make your cabin air that little extra cleaner, so you breath fresher air. Of course, you have your car’s air conditioner doing the job with its internal filter cleaning the air thrown inside the cabin, but Moonbow with this new device tries to clean it further.

How it works:
It is a simple plug & play model. Just insert the air purifiers plug in the power socket / charging point of your vehicle, and the device comes to life. It gives you an audible beep when it turns on. The XL sized power button with LED backlit also makes its presence felt.

Green indicates that the cabin air is at its cleanest. There are two other indication lights – blue & red.

What it does: (Moonbow Claim)

  • Pre-Filter + True HEPA Filter + Activated Carbon Filter + Refreshing Energizers
  • Auto Odor Sensor
  • Air Quality Indicator
  • Filter Replacement Indicator
  • Aroma Diffuser
  • Area Coverage: Upto 20 sq ft
  • CADR: 15 m3/hr

Now, does it make a difference? The air purifier does show you when the air is clean, and when not. Also, if the purifier has been on for a while and it is now indicating green (clean air), if you drive with the windows rolled down, it does notify you with the LED colour changing that the air quality is not at its optimum. So when you roll up the windows, the device cleans up the cabin impurities.

You can also hear the small fan inside the device in motion, when there’s no music or no talking inside the cabin.

You can mount the Moonbow purifier behind the front seats, or stick it on the dashboard. It is advisable not to place it under the seats or keep it hidden, as you wouldn’t know what’s the quality of air you’re breathing.

But if you ask if you can very clearly feel fresher air, not really. But at least the device showing you that its operating as it should is comforting.

You can buy the Moonbow car air purifier from Amazon & Flipkart. Both vendors though are selling it at a massive discount, and at different pricing.
