Bionaire BAP600-U

Bionaire BAP600-U Quick Review

An "eggciting" new air purifier (sorry for the bad pun), Bionaire BAP600-U is an egg shaped air purifier that look like none other (except for Holmes HAP600-TU which shares a similar platform). Featuring an intuitive touch control panel and its hassle-free permanent HEPA-type filter, Bionaire BAP600-U can cover a wide variant of household pollutants within its purifying zone. At a fraction of average air purifier price, can its performance match its outstanding exterior?

Airflow performance and applicable area

Unfortunately the performance for Bionaire BAP600-U Egg does not live up to most expectation. With a purifying of only 10 m<2up>2 (112 sq. ft.), Bionaire BAP600-U Egg is best suited for small environment such as bedroom, office desk or tabletop. While the permanent HEPA-type filter can handle particles including dust, mold, pollen and pet dander as small as 2 microns, it will have a hard time dealing with persistent particles notoriously VOCs from chemical products.

Final thoughts on Bionaire BAP600-U Egg

Bionaire BAP600-U Egg air purifier might generate the hypes that many consumers are “eggcited” about (again sorry for the bad pun), the relatively poor purifying performance and efficiency just fall short to its beautiful exterior. At such a low price and zero filter replacement cost, Bionaire BAP600-U Egg might still be a great deal if you can tone down your exception.
