...even on the lowest setting. I plugged mine into an electrical outlet timer set to run about three hours a day, and it does a fine job freshening up a musty 30' basement hallway.
In terms of quality, it definitely works for me out of the box, so no complaints there. However, considering it's a Chinese-made product, I don't expect it to last more than a couple years. $40 for a set of two seems like a decent price if they last that long.
People should keep in mind that ozone irritates (i.e. damages) your lung tissues, albeit on a miniscule level. For this reason, you should not generate ozone in your bedroom or anywhere else you spend a lot of time. Also, you should only use the minimum amount of ozone needed to get the desired effect.
So I use these for two purposes. The first one I use it to clean my sleep apnea machine. I simply place it in a plastic container with my CPAP equipment and I ran it for about an hour. Works awesome!
I also use it in my rooms. I will put it with an extension cord in an area in which I’m trying to treat the smell. I take the extension cord and run it out into the other room. Under the door. Are usually run it for about five hours. I close the vent and I put a towel along the bottom of the door. When I’m done I simply unplug the extension cord in the other room and I leave my room alone for an out for the O3 to break down to O2. Works amazing!
These are bigger than I expected, about the size of your open hand. They work very well and are perfect to deodorize one space at a time (while no one is in it), and you can let it run (no timer) as long as you like, no auto shut off after set time. So I like that. I can place it under my sink and run it while I'm away in town and come back and turn it off and air out the room while I water my plants. I can run it in individual rooms with the door shut, while I'm home when I don't have the central air running or the furnace blowing. I can do the bathroom with the door closed, closets or anything else I like. I'm doing the crawl space next and letting it run a few days - a no one will be exposed, but it is a large space and will take time to build up enough ozone to do any good. Hope these units last.
I have only been using the 2 purchased in a large room for about a week. This room has 3 litter boxes which while I clean them there is still an odor due to our Male cat. I first removed the Glade plugins that I had and then installed these. In a short amount of time I could smell the ozone and no litter smell. I hope they continue to work and will purchase more for my entire home if they prove long term.
Very well made. Put it to work and could tell a difference right away love how you can adjust it with nob and you recieve 2 so works well in closets rooms get rid of smoke smell and any othey mildey smell i give it 5 stars for afordable and well made. Ive been using for 2 weeks now
I am astonished at how throughly these little plug ins work. I opted to get the second for a small additional charge. So far I've let 2 friends try them out. Just like myself, they too were really surprised something so small made such a dramatic difference. I should also say I am a cat rescue. So for it to clean the air enough to shock me means that plug in is amazing. One thing I would suggest. Site says do not use with people or animals in the room. On the package insert or packaging there is nothing addressing this important information.
My brother is a smoker and it makes the whole house stink. Got him these for Christmas and it's amazing the difference it makes, you would never guess he smokes at all now. I plan on buying these again and placing them throughout the house.
After cooking, sometimes the food smells linger. I ordered the Vivosun Air Purifier -- just plugged one in; turned it on and in no time, walking back into my kitchen, there's no food smell. I can turn it on/off as needed. Glad I purchased this!
UPDATE: Customer support did provide a refund for the failed items even though we were outside the 30 day window. Support like that would convince me to buy again.
ORIGINAL REVIEW: Well, they produce ozone and kill odors. I bought a total of eight of these (4x2-packs). 2 failed in the return window, and 2 more failed just outside the return window. So now I have 4 still running, which means if you buy a 2-pack, you’re really buying a 1-Pack. Ironically, the one I needed the most by the litter box has been the longest and strongest running unit, over 60 days now. Still, I expect more for my money. It’s a solid idea, but poor QA/QC. I’d steer clear of this one.
I bought one of these a few year ago for my office space, and it has worked great. So, I bought two more for other larger open rooms in the townhouse especially at the urging of the spouse who immediately notices the difference in my office space vs. the rest of the townhome.
