Product Description

Pollution gets everywhere - even in the home. Tobacco smoke, pet fur and house dust mites pollute the air we breathe. There is no escape by opening the windows as the fresh air we breathe can contain the same irritants as well as traffic fumes and tree and flower pollen. This Ionising Air Purifier is designed to improve air quality by reducing pollutants and allergy triggers that can cause asthma and allergy attacks. It has an air filter which helps to remove impurities. This is backed up by ionisers, which help to reduce the irritants in the air. What is an Ioniser? An ioniser (negative ion generator) uses high voltage to ionise (electrically charge) the molecules in the air. Negative ions (anions) are particles with one or more extra electrons, conferring an overall negative charge to the particle. Cations are the opposite to ions - positive ions missing one or more electrons, resulting in an overall positive charge. Ionisation removes pollutants from the air using this molecular attraction including dust, fumes, fungus, pollen, odours, fibres, smoke, soot and other microscopic airborne particles.

This product is one of the best I have had. I ordered a more expensive plug in one which was 5 x the price and it didn't do half the job this one does. Although a bit noisier than the more expensive products it is extremely effective for clearing the air of dust, smoke and pet dust. I would strongly recommend this product, however you must clean the filter everyday to stop a build up which will affect the working of the product. You can buy these cheaper from some stores but I am disabled and don't get out much so ordered this and it was delivered within 2 days.

The low price of this item belies the quality of the product and I imagine people choosing more expensive products because we are brainwashed in that way.
The very simple design of the Lloyds machine is outlined by another reviewer and it would be useful if some reviewers re-visited the Amazon site to report on long term use.
I am on my second one and can testify that ionisation and filtration is sufficient for an average urban living room. The manufacturers could improve the ionising power by using two strips and this would act as a fail-safe -- much as Rio's models still work quite well with 4 of the 6 'needles' out of action.
Whereas Rio and other needle ionisers are passive, the strength of the Lloyds is in throughput so that heavy irritants are caught in the washable filter so the air passing back into the room is cleaner air to be ionised. Needle types are easier to 'see' in action from the dust around the bases but if one cleans the Lloyds filter every few days that is where most dust is found.
Under the fan side of the Lloyds unit one sees finer dust, demonstrating the dual action of the device.
Tobacco and pet smells do not disappear but the air is significantly fresher under test conditions and the design of the unit allows placement where there are smokers and pets with demonstrable results.
The fan can be mildly noisy when bedding-in but soon it is much quieter than such as computer fans.
As long as the filter is cleaned regularly the Lloyds ioniser will give long service.

The Lloyds Air purifier certainly seem to have helped clear our sitting room of dusty particles and general impurities. However the fan is a trifle intrusive so we have the Ioniser on a timer overnight to clear the atmosphere. Modestly priced and moderately effective.

I was somewhat sceptical when I saw how cheap this ioniser is compared to other models - but thought at that price it was certainly worth a try! Well what a pleasant surprise... not only does it seem to work really well, but it's also pretty quiet! The air in my room definitely feels 'fresher' - and for the last couple of mornings I haven't woken up with my normal stuffy head, and I think I've even slept better too. I suffer from multiple allergies - and having two cats and two dogs certainly doesn't help - but this certainly does seem to help keep my bedroom feeling a little more comfortable for me!

A couple of other views: my daughter noticed the difference as soon as she came into my room, saying that it felt cooler and fresher (hmmm - this makes it sound as if it usually stinks in there - which it doesn't! lol!) - compared to the rest of the house. She also thought the noise of the fan wasn't intrusive, and soon stopped noticing it. However my flat-mate said he couldn't tell any difference and that the noise was irritating - but then he is a die-hard cynic, and would find the noise a fly breaking wind to be irritating! I honestly don't have a problem with it though - and actually find the quiet 'white noise' fine at night.

I think it's doing a good job, and am very pleased with it - certainly for the price, I don't think you can go wrong! I'm not sure if it would be powerful enough in a larger room (my bedroom is about 12 x 10ft, at a rough guess) - but maybe other reviewers can correct me on this?

This is a very basic ioniser of indifferent design, at an affordable price. It works, wow.

To be honest, at first I wasn't very impressed by the device. It looks like it was assembled from the simplest parts available, and it is. But it works: after a few minutes of listening to the modest buzz of the fan you start getting static discharges from your house plants, items and surfaces nearby. After a while, plant leaves even metres away from the device seem charged. You can't say it doesn't work: it clearly ionises the air in a small space, and thus grants the proposed benefits of ionisers. With it, airborne particles quickly settle onto surfaces, and are thus less likely to end up irritating your eyes, nose and lungs.

The device itself sports a simple 80mm fan (the same type you find in computers), the ioniser string and a detachable "filter", all in a massive gloss-white plastic casing with an on/off switch. The filter is a loose polyester mesh, through which even small flies could fly. To get any actual filtration, you can, and should, add your own screen - I personally used an active carbon filter sheet designed for vacuum cleaner bags. It fits perfectly under the original mesh. There's no saying will this do you any real good.

This machine would probably work best in a small space, where its fan is sufficient to ionise the air. Rid you of a particular, especially pertinent smell, this device will most likely not. For this price it's surely worth the try, since the next real step in air purification would be an ioniser/ozonator.

One of the only cheap ionisers you can actually get shipped into EU Zone 3, at a decent price. UK mains, of course.
