If you’re someone who works from home, you know how important it is to maintain a separate workspace. If you often shuttle from one room to another, you need an air purifier that can do the same. After all, if you’re still slightly on the fence about getting an air purifier, you obviously wouldn’t want to invest in one for each room that you sit in, right? You can use your portable purifier in your home office throughout the day, and then take it to your bedroom to ensure that the air in there is purified properly too. Here are a few portable air purifiers that you should check out:

Additionally, the purifier has an OLED display that can help you know more about the quality of the air in the room. As this purifier comes with a CADR of 380 m3/h, you can expect it to purify a small to a medium-sized room relatively well. In fact, the brand claims that it covers an area of 484 sq. ft.
