If you don't believe any of the other review stating how wonderful this product is, you surely should listen to me! This house i live in is very dusty. I mean dusty to the point where in just a few days time, I would see dust bunnies everywhere. But from the moment that I plug the ion box in, the dust subsided, I don't feel dirty anymore, I'm sleeping a little better, and the air smells and feels VERY fres!!!
I mean it's just simply amazing! If you suffer from asthma or know anyone that does, or you just really want to get bad odors out of your house like mold and dust and mildew smells, get 2 of these! they work!!!
12/9/2016 just wanted to update and say that when they get noisy, that means you need to remove most of the cotton on both ends of a qtip and gently push it inside of the small openings between the plastic fan blades to clean out the black stuff that has accumulated in there. i have to do this at least twice a week with how dusty this room gets
I was a little skeptical at first because I had bought a few of these ionizers from Aliexpress and Ebay for a few dollars. I decided to give the Ionbox a shot and I was blown away! I plugged it in and the little fan started spinning. The blue light turned on as well but after a minute the blue light was gone. The led might be faulty but it's actually better without the light. The device has been running non-stop for two days now. Our apartment is 53m3 (570 sq.m) and it has cleared the air in the whole apartment. The air smells clean and I can't detect any smell that was there before. It's been two days so I can't say much about it's energizing effect. I decided to do a little experiment with the device. I usually use my e-cig on the balcony and sometimes I've taken a couple of puffs inside the apartment and the vapor clears very slowly even with the windows open. While the Ionbox was running I took several puffs inside the apartment with the windows closed. The air was clear within a minute.
I'm very happy with the product! I contacted the Ionpacific customer service regarding the broken led light and I got a reply promptly. They would've replaced the unit if I wanted so but I said I'm happy even if the led is broken, even better. Great job Ionpacific!
Measured with my negative ion counter and output is actually a little more than 20 million ions. The ionbox 20m definitely delivers on it's claim. Another thing I like about it compared to other ionizers is that the ionbox doesn't emit any ozone. Will be purchasing a few more for friends/family.
This thing has changed my entire life at work. I used to drag all day and get really fatigued by all of the positive ions at work. I only figured this out after I got this thing, plugged it in, and stopped getting 3pm fatigue at my desk. It seriously has changed my days and it's remarkable.
I ordered two of these, but had to get them delivered to my parents house in Texas (luckily I was visiting soon) because they do not ship to California. That is an inconvenience so the stars do reflect. I stayed at my parents house with my husband on a mini vacation for a week and gave them a test run there.
1. Definitely helped with the smell of smoke in the house. My parents are heavy cigarette smokers and chain smoke inside and after a couple days of having both ionizers running I could smell the difference when I walked into the house. It did no smell like an ashtray like before. I also noticed a lot of black residue covered both ionizer after having them on for a couple days. I guess that is a good thing and shows it is actually doing something...
I put one of the ionizers right next to the bed when I slept and I got a noticeably better sleep. It was literally about 8-12 inches away. Since coming back to California I do not have somewhere to place it as close while sleeping so I am not using it and I can feel the difference in my sleep quality.
Since being back home I have not noticed much change in the clarity of my air. It was much more noticeable at my parents house maybe because of the smoke...it could be that the air in my home was already pretty clean...also no more black residue.
One of the machines is located in the same room as my cats litter box (hoping it would assist in the smell) however, It has not made much difference in the litter box/kitty poop. It isn't terrible but I can still notice the smell the same way I had before the box. Overall, I think the box is very good to have close while sleeping and for cleaner air in a home with smokers.
I live in a house built in 1896 and heat the place in winter with a wood stove. Suffice to say that the place can get dusty and unfortunately sometimes more than a little smoky. Prior to my purchase of the ION BOX if I experienced the wood stove backpuffing (smoke comes in the house rather than up the chimney), my only recourse was to open all the window, which can be uncomfortable in the middle of winter. The ION BOX saved me from that predicament. It cleared my bedroom of any smell of smoke and let me keep the house warm. Not only that but the device's fan creates a soothing white noise whir that I found efficacious to sleep. After 7 months of nightly use the fan became noisy. An email to ION PACIFIC was answered by Ryan the same day and I had a new ION BOX at NO CHARGE within a week. I can't recommend this product and ION PACIFIC enough!
Instead of this thing, you'd be better off buying magical crystals and a shaman to get rid of odors (sorry, I didn't mean to insult magical crystals and shamans that harshly). My guess is this thing cost around $2.00 to make, and that would be overpriced for retail. It moves air around like it's not even there, and in terms of removing particles and odors from rooms, not happening. Piece of junk, getting returned.
I don't think this thing is worth $5.00 in parts. It may as well advertise it produces magical invisible dragons. What a waste. Every time I look at this thing I feel violated, like I've been robbed. Not robbed like at gun point but robbed by a con man or woman. The effort involved in the attractive packaging and the design of the plastic case that the cheap electrical components are housed demonstrate a level of deception that had to have been orchestrated by a group of sinister individuals who's job is perpetrating fraud for financial gain. I've investigated the process of generating negative ions and yes this is a real thing and used in manufacturing electronics and the like. It's generally used to help eliminate static electricity. The components to build a device to generate negative ions are very very cheap. Investigate this for yourself. For $79 dollars you could build a device that you could watch clear smoke from a large enclosed area. Please donate your money to feed hungry people or provide shelter for the homeless or give your money to an animal shelter. Or just save your money. In short, don't buy into this elaborate con.
I have only had this product for a couple of weeks but I have seen immediate results in my sinuses. I am no longer waking up unable to breath through my nose and with a sinus headache. Not completely cleared up but enough better that I know the products works. My problem is with the bright blue light that you can't turn off. Sleep experts all say you should sleep in a dark room. This product has an intense little blue light that is so bright it actually casts shadows on the wall. What a stupid feature. I put some painters tape over it but that is not enough to dim its intensity. I'm going to try duct tape tonight. My expectation is that the manufacturers would be aware of such things and market a better product. I will probably be purchasing another negative ion generator, but not this one, because of that light.
I have used this less than 2 months and it is failing. There was a loud wheezing sound. I unplugged it and used the brush to try to remove dust. It is not small enough to clean it thoroughly. I plugged it back in and it again is making that noise after one day!
