A small and lightweight air purifier house in a sleek, cylinder shape size. JINPUS GL-2103 comes in at only 4.9 x 7.6 x 4.9 inches and 1.2 pounds weight. The portable size is perfect for tabletop, kitchen, caravan, trailer, washroom, and litterbox placement as it takes up very little space. You can bring it along for travel considering how dirty the room air quality can be in a hotel. Build quality is OK with a heavy reliance on cheap plasticky materials. The good thing is you can easily remove the bottom panel for filter change and it will snap back tightly with no chance of leakage.

With a familiar bottom-to-top airflow system, JINPUS GL-2103 is very easy to operate. Powered by a single button, press once to turn on the machine with a delicate blue light, double press will enter into sleep mode with dimmed down light and 8 hours shutoff timer. Triple press with turn-off JINPUS air purifier. The nightlight function adds soft blue light that decorates your room with added security for children sleeping alone. There is also a 5 feet long USB power cord that you can plug into a laptop or wall plug for 24×7 operation.

What’s inside count

JINPUS GL-2103 air cleaner runs solely on mechanical filtration to clean the air from harmful pollutants. You have a fine preliminary filter that blocks dust, hair, and other large particles from moving forward. The true HEPA filter traps 99.97% of microscopic particles like pet dander, mold, mildew, pollen, and germs. Lastly, the activated carbon filter absorbs light smoke and odors from food, cooking, toilet, and cigarette. There's even a negative ion generator that helps pull down positive ions contaminants in the air.

For less than 40 dollars after discount, there is no sweeter deal than JINPUS GL-2103 Air Purifier. You'll get all the features you need from mechanical filtration with complicated maintenance. The 6 months life filter set cost is slightly high but still accessible for most people. If you can't bear the recurring filter replacement of JINPUS, you're better off with a filterless air purifier instead.
There are very limited places you can get your hands on the JINPUS GL-2103 air purifier as it is not a household brand. The best place to go is no doubt Amazon as it offers exceptional discounts, free shipping (with prime), bundled purchase deals, and a 30-days return policy if you're not happy with the purchase. Stock availability might be limited when closer to the holiday season so do keep that in mind.

Pros

  • One of the cheapest HEPA air purifiers in the market for less than 40 dollars.
  • Extremely compact and lightweight at only 1.2 pounds.
  • 4-stage filtration including True-HEPA filter, activated carbon filter, and negative ion generator.
  • Low-power and whisper-quiet operation even when placed next to you.
  • Can be powered by USB. Perfect for travel and office use.
  • Built-in night light mode.

Cons

  • Mediocre filtration and airflow circulation that only serves a specific purpose.
  • Sleep mode comes with an annoying 8 hours countdown timer.
  • The all-in-one filter set needs replacing twice a year.
