Possibly better question: Is this company real, or just a label stuck on the outside of a box from a manufacturer of goods that you are free to rebrand at your discretion? There’s way too much of that going around, these days.
@airjer@werehatrack Also adding to that theory, the filter systems seem completely different in style and technology. The small is a typical round canister like shop-vacs use, and for some reason only available from a 3rd party on Walmart, and eBay for a price higher than the unit with filter here. The medium is a ´pancake’ disc. And the large is a more conventional sheet system, probably the easiest to kludge if you had to hack your own once these become unavailable.
Gotta like how two of the key ´features’ are that it does NOT have a UV source or ion generator. Both are often in more expensive units, and are almost always switchable on and off if you don’t want to use them. So this is saying ´Hey, I’m 45 bucks, and what’s more, NONE of those scary features to worry about’
And the UV source is generally only good for producing a decorative purple light around the edge of something. It’s almost never at a frequency that will actually do anything aside from make an old '60s pop art poster glow. Not having to pay extra for crap that does nothing useful, and sometimes does something you really don’t want, is most certainly a feature.
You won’t get any ionization of the air flowing through one of these filters from the level of UV that can be produced by the LEDs that they use, and if they were using a UV source that could ionize the air, the result would be ozone. And you do not want ozone. UV-C is useful for disinfection, but the majority of these manufacturers don’t use UV-C LEDs. They use the 395 nm ones instead, which produce the entertaining purple glow.
