@Annie
Thank you.
We are always happy to hear about the Air Halo experience and the valuable feedbacks all our Backers bring to us. The Air Halo can be laid horizontally on the rear flat surface for a more stable position on desk and flat top usage.
In this configuration, the out-vent is designed to subtly divert the airflow at an upwards angle. Regards,
Air Halo Team

Like my air halo however I wish the battery would last longer. My first night of use the battery lasted about 8hrs. Then the next time it only lasted about 6hrs and it has stayed at the 5-6hrs range. I wish the base was a little bit wider as it tends to fall over easily. Other than that, great job team :)

@T. Lee Thank you for contacting us in regards to your Air Halo. When operating a new Air Halo, it takes a measure of time to “burn in”. Any unusual odours will dissipate within 24 hours of usage. If you have any further inquiries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. Regards,

The air coming out of mine smells like plastic. Anyone else with the same issue?

@Benny Ang Thank you for contacting us in regards to you Air Halo. Please be aware that during normal operation, the Plascide reactors will make a low-level "electrical discharge" type of sound. If this is not the source of the "ticking" sound, can you please give us more details? A member of Air Halo support staff has reached out to you.
please check your inbox on Kickstarter and/or corresponding email. Regards,

Is it normal to get a ticking sound when you run it?

Review from Kickstarter
@CL @Lien Shi Air freshers mask odours by overwhelming your sense of smell, however the source of the odour will still persist long after the air fresher runs dry. One of the key advantages of Plascide technology, is the neutralization effect on any airborne organic chemicals and biological contaminants, eliminating the root of the problem. Charging Mode:
You are correct in regards to the LED Flashes during charging, where the LED will stop flashing after a few seconds. This is intentional. To avoid prolong distraction during low light charging the LED will stop flashing after a period of time however the Air Halo will continue to charge the battery until full. We thank you for all feedbacks on the Air Halo, we value all inputs and will continue to make improvements for a better user experience. Regards,
Air Halo Team

Review from Kickstarter
I received Air Halo a few days ago and it is very good when using in my car. I used air fresheners in my car but, when using it longer, there was some strange smell which was hard to get rid of. Air Halo removed this strange smell after a couple of hours. I did not expect Air Halo would remove this type of smell as I thought it is used for germs killing only. Well done, Air Hello Team.
For the description of charging mode condition, the menu is actually not clearly explained. The green light blinking 3 to 5 times but stopping suddenly would lead users considering that it is not in proper function . I also had this feeling initially. I did unplugged and connected the power again but I found it happened the same. I therefore left it to charge with no any indicator light on. I found that the green light turned on when it was fully charged. I guess the function of turning off the continuously blinking of green light is to avoid eye distraction, particularly in the night time. Also, the operation of the power button is not well documented as the power button looks like that it is pushed on the top but it is actually pushed from the side. I think your team should modified the menu.

Review from Kickstarter
@Alex v, Thank you for your feedback! We are incredibly happy that you have received your Air Halos and that it meets and exceeds your expectations. You are correct about “Silent” mode, the time-to-clean of a given volume of air is naturally lower due to the slower speed of the fan.
The aim of the “Silent” mode is to provide a quieter experience without compromise, the Plascide reactors will automatically adjust to maintain the same germicide and VOC efficiency.
On the other hand, “Boost” mode is the opposite, aiming to maximize the time-to-clean of the volume of air.

Review from Kickstarter
Just unpacked my Halo Twins.
I am quite impressed by the quality of the product (and packaging, which is much more professional than the average kickstarter project) and how simple it is to attach and control the devices. They are a bit noisier than I would have expected but that's acceptable in "silent" mode. Also the power button is a bit strange at first, but overall I'm very happy! ^_^ Question: what is the impact of the three modes (normal/boost/silent) on performance? Is the "bubble" of clean air smaller in silent mode, or does it only takes longer to get it clean? Thanks!

@KKY
Thank you for backing us!
The feedback from you the Backers plus the research, development and production of the Air Halo project will be a valuable experience that will make the feasibility of a larger household product with Plascide Reactors a serious consideration.
So once again, thank you for your support!

Review from Kickstarter
@Tom
1m^3 sphere isn't that large, however it is precisely because the coverage is small that it is much more easier to maintain a consistent volume of sanitized air for you to breathe. Like that of an air conditioner, with the fast micro-lightning Plascide Reactor process, Air Halo can introduce a source of clean and sanitized air that dilutes and push the contaminated air away from your breathing space.
KKY
Review from Kickstarter
I have like to see a room sized version in the near future. In the mean time, I have pledged for the family package so I can put a couple of Air Halo around the room. And certainly will place one in my office especially in times when the colleagues next to me are still trying to work in the office while not not feeling well.
Tom
Review from Kickstarter
Just really wondering how you manage to know that this is the air you are actually breathing and that it's not going around you - after all 1 meter is not that large and nobody really knows lite wind currents

@Cin Hit
There is a professional "Standalone" air sanitizer which utilize Plascide reactors, that has a coverage area of 1200 sq/ft.
For more information, please visit www.i-saca.com.
We are aware that professional-grade standards might not be required for normal every day household. But thanks to you our backers and supporters for Air Halo's success, we are optimistic that there is a real demand outside of the professional industries, which has encourage us to explore the possibility of a design in the future, that will bridge the gap between the Air Halo and the professional-grade "Standalone" air sanitizer and truly bring Plascide's clean germ-free air to everyone.

Review from Kickstarter
After this campaign, are there plans to make a room sized air sanitizer? While I see the travel appeal, I don't plan for it to ever leave my room. Which makes me interested in a stronger version of it.

We have added a Family Pack Pledge for 3 x Air Halo Twins (or mix of Twins and Couples) reward for you to share Air Halos…
Some of you asked how to change your pledge from the Twin Pack to Family Pack. Following are the steps from Kickstarter FAQ:
“Visit the project page and click the blue “Manage" button that appears next to your pledge amount. Select "Update your pledge" on the following page. Then choose the new reward tier you'd like to pledge for and your pledge amount will update automatically.”

Thank you for your suggestion. We are happy to announce not just one but two stretch goals.
First, a new "AQUA" colour choice is available now to celebrate achieving the £40,000 pledges.
Second, a stretch goal for reaching £50,000 pledges is a durable braid cord bag, that can hold one or two Air Halos for you to hang or carry about, available to everyone, existing and new backers.
Please spread the word! Let’s give clean germ-free air to people you love and care for!

@J Master
Boost mode will increase the speed of the fan (Volume of air) and power into the Plascide reactor (energy within the micro-lightning field). For each Air Halo modes, optimization will require matching of these two parameters to give the best results.
J Master
Review from Kickstarter
In Boost mode, did it increase the laser intensiveness or the fan speed?
Air Halo
Review from Kickstarter
@Leon Everton
Air Halo's three hours of operation was measured while in Boost mode. For Normal mode operational times, we are still tweaking the mode(s) at this moment, therefore we will give solid numbers once we are satisfied with the optimization. However to give you a rough idea, our paper calculation and data collected so far, we expect at least an additional 20% longer operation while in Normal mode.
Leon Everton
Review from Kickstarter
Does Air Halo work for 3 hours in normal mode or 3 hours in boost mode? If it's the latter then how long does it work in normal mode?

@Shirlene Kwan
The Air Halo is primarily designed to eliminate micro-organisms and VOCs, as such it will deactivate some pollen types.
Any device that is higher than 50dB is considered undesirable. The Air Halo prototype is 45dBA, however the production model will have a sound level lower than 40dB.

Does this address dust and pollen at all? I watched the prototype video and when it's turned on, the fan seems to be very loud. Are there plans to address this in the final product?

We would not comment on other project as there is no product in the market that we can try.
From a technology point of view, ion generator (or anion generator) electrically charges air molecules and airborne particles. The charge helps taking particulate matters (dust, pollens etc.) out of the air temporarily by making them attach to the nearest surface such as wall, table or floor until the charge dissipates.
