Credit to the Airgle team from New York, this well-planned air cleaner is the prime example of a good balance between a modern design exterior fitted with an extraordinary performance. With all of its large filters attached, the Airgle AG850 is well-fitted in an aluminum housing.
The downside, Airgle AG850 is also extremely heavy at 25.9 kg; heavier than a 60-inch flat screen LCD TV. Fortunately, there are 4 high-quality casters supporting the weight for easy sliding. On the exterior, the dual cleanable air vent is located at the back (intake) and front (outtake) of the air purifier; while advanced control panel with multi-information LCD screen located at the top. Overall the unit is solidly built with no air bypass (pressure sealed system), easy to use with many intuitive controls that can control most functions at a press of a button. Auto safety shut-off, Ozone-free technology certified by CARB, Electrical Safety Listings (ETL) listed, Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) verified and 5 years warranty all comes standard.

Applicable area, airflow, noise level and power input

Rather similar to AG800, Airgle AG850 air purifier can cover a range of 63 m2/ 679 sq. ft. with 5 air changes per hour (1669 sq. ft. in range if only 2 air charges of air). Airgle AG850 guaranteed performance that can deliver a massive 135 m³/h of air minimum, to 197 m³/h, 265 m³/h, 325 m³/h, and maximum 742 m³/h. Noise level is manageable due to its ultra-quiet motor technology; at 33 dB minimum, 36 dB, 42 dB, 47 dB and 68 dB maximum. Power input is slightly higher if compared with AG800, at 48 watts minimum, 65 watts, 83 watts, 102 watts and 194 watts maximum.

Final thoughts on Airgle AG850

Not may air purifiers would get full approval from our panel, Airgle AG850 did without a shadow of a doubt. A well-thought-out air purifier that comes with premium housing, reliable filtration, intuitive controls, and 5 years warranty. A perfect balance between aesthetics and functionality that most air purifier manufacturer fails to deliver. If you do not mind the premium pricing, this is definitely the arsenal you would want to have in dealing with constant airborne pollutants and chemicals invasion.

^ Replacement filters/ estimated cost
Park just below Airgle AG900, Airgle AG850 is cheaper but still way beyond the reach of most people. The biggest setback would probably be the annual filter replacement, as the maintenance cost is very high like all Airgle air purifier. For people that are currently hunting for a reliable and powerful air purifier, always study through the annual filter cost first as an air purifier will be in for a long run.

Airgle AG850 VS the challengers

Airgle AG900

The more expensive version with added Titanium Pro system. Features and design remains the same.
Blueair Classic 605

Blueair 605

Other than the standard plastic exterior, Blueair 605 is a cheaper, high-performance alternative option that does not fall short in firepower.
