Five Stars Review by Zen_zero
Very healthy/must have in a car, especially in air-polluted LA area.
If you had problems with breathing or irregular hearth-rate after driving in dense traffic,
turning this on really helps. (Posted on 7/8/15)
Not worth the money Review by Cece
I bought this unit to use during my commute. The only way it helps is if I hold it up to my face while I drive, tricky but doable. Not really safe. I would have returned it but Lifekind wouldn't allow a return on this machine. Just know if you buy it, there is no returning it for not doing it's job. It just doesn't have enough power to exchange the air fast enough. I will be selling it at my garage sale for a few bucks. I will say Lifekind has treated me very well on other returns or exchanges. I am a big fan.

What are the dimensions of this air filter? I need one for a car, but this looks a bit big for a car.
The unit is 7.5" high by 8.5" wide.
Are there lights that shine when the filter is in use (I need to keep my bedroom really dark)? Also, how far from the wall does the filter need to sit?
I believe there a small power light that turns on when the unit is in use. If you place it in a central location that is the best way to ensure proper air circulation.
