It also feels quite sturdy and professionally built with a 1-year limited warranty for additional peace of mind.

The Setup

To turn on the device you simply hold down the power button for 3-seconds and again to turn it off. The display which is conveniently located at the top is where you can see the battery level, the speed of the fan and more importantly, the quality of your air.

Air Quality

  • Blue = Excellent
  • Green = Good
  • Red = Medium/Poor

Of course read the instructions before you start and best of all, the XCD Portable Air Purifier is very simple to use.

If you have a USB connection in your car, this allows you to charge while you’re on the go or alternatively, a high-speed USB power adapter is needed at home. In order to clean the filter, you simply twist the XCD Portable Air Purifier to get access to it. You then use a damp cloth to clean the filter. It is also super quiet and runs at just 40dB with its highest speed rating that makes it quite unnoticeable.

Final Thoughts?

If you’re looking to improve the air quality in your car (or even a small room), then the XCD Portable Air Purifier might be the right device for you. Best of all, it is a well-designed product that is not only small but super easy to use with a well-thought out display to let you know what the XCD Portable Air Purifier is doing.
