Airbubbl In-Car Air Cleaner

Keep your vehicle pollution-free with the Airbubbl In-Car Air Cleaner. This clever device is scientifically proven to remove over 95% of nitrogen dioxide as well as other pollution from your car. Toxic air can easily enter your vehicle through the many air inlets. Incredibly, nitrogen dioxide levels inside your car are 21% higher than on the sidewalk, well over the legal limit. In fact, just an hour in traffic in a polluted car equates to having two cigarette’s worth of nitrogen dioxide. But, the Airbubbl changes that. Attaching it to your headrest, the device draws in the polluted air circulating inside your car. Then its proprietary filtration technology and dual-fan design rid the air of nitrogen dioxide, VOCs, bacteria, and even odors, before releasing clean air back into the car. Great for any car, the Airbubbl is especially useful for protecting kids as well as those with asthma.

They have kept delaying delivery and have now gone incommunicado. Backers should report this to BBC Watchdog

Congratulations!! Super excited to try this out, as a mum on school runs in the city of london this is vital to our good health ... I've actually been wishing you success in your project daily as a wipe the black soot off my car and my kids cough in the back. Well done for making cleaner air a reality, whatever your car wherever you are ( planning to take this abroad too!)
Barbara Sellors
Delighted to hear you are fully funded with this excellent, much needed product. Can't wait to get mine! Congratulations!

Hi Jorren,
Alot is special about the Airbubbl and different from the in-car filters. You are right that the Frecious plus filter does filter NOx and Ozone etc - however there are a few things that make an Airbubbl superior in every way.
1) Fit: The Frecious filters currently come in few sizes and are designed for new premium vehicles as an 'added' extra. They do not fit standard and older cars. 98% of the world drive in cars 2+ years old.
2) Efficiency and Capacity: The Frecious filters use a very fine layer of activated carbon. We have tested them all (and have been asked to so by 3 car manufacturers). The results show that a) they have a much lower removal rate than the Airbubbl on single pass, and b) that their gasncapacity is much less meaning you have to change it much quicker than the Airbubbl filter in order for it to remain effective. In terms of cost, they do cost the same as an Airbubbl filter if bought at cost. However most garages do not carry these as standard and therefore adding mark-up, installation and rate of change - they are actually pretty costly! The other superior quality about the Airbubbl is that it has been designed to remove dirty air that comes in when you open your windows and then deliver clean air directly back to driver and passengers airways so they are not exposed to air pollution that comes in. We are in discussion with car companies at the moment as they to recognise the issue. Hope that helps!

What is so special about this product, when these filters are already on the market for a long time and available for all cars: http://www.frecious-plus.com/en They have the same function, are integrated in cars and filter the same, eg. toxic components, NOx, Ozone, Sulpher Dioxide and many more. There is even prevention against mould and bacteria in using those filters. Plus they cost less than the replacement filters of the Airbubbl.

Hi 110011,
Unfortunately the Airbubbl isn't being manufactured in Denmark so the shipping costs would still occur. In terms of the NOx removal, we have designed a filter that includes a specially treated form of carbon that is re-engineered to use nano technology - giving it greater absorption, density and lifespan. This material is inside all of our solutions including the bench and bus shelters. When the filter is full it will notify you on the Airbubbl to change the filter. It will mainly be the small particle filter that goes first, but there will be some gradual inefficiencies in the NOx filter over time.
At 800 hours the capacity of the NOx filter will be a lot less, between 10-20% remaining capacity on the filter, which is why we recommend to change the whole filter at this point.

I'm residing in Copenhagen, Denmark. Will I be able to pick up the item, without incurring the high cost of shipping from the UK. Also, I have wondered how you are able to remove NOx with a filter. I thought it would take a chemical conversion. So what is the NOx filter mechanism? Can you clarify, when the 800 hours are up and the filter needs replacement, is it the small particles filter that dictates this, or does it reflect growing inefficiency of the NOx filter? And if the NOx filter capacity is increasingly becoming ineffective, what is the estimated % remaining capacity at 800 hours?

Hi Bartlomiej, the Airbubbl does indeed remove odours, and it will remove 2/3rds of the smell/pollution within 2 minutes, and continue to clean after that. It is very quick and effective!
Bartlomiej Oszczak
What if I feel exhaust fumes inside my car is air cleaning fast and effective how long does it take to remove this awful smell ?
Airlabs
The Airbubbl is not a loud device and is about 30-45 decibels when switched on, depending where you are sitting in the car - that's a whisper to the sound of a computer. The BBC video significantly amplified the sound as the presenter had a microphone directly on top of the outlet. In regards to turning on/off the Airbubbl, it will turn on automatically and off automatically when it is plugged in to the 12V socket. If used on its rechargable batteries then it can manually be turned on and off if it is not connected to car power.

Congrats to the Airlabs team, it is a fantastic campaign, and your job is inspirational to me. The entire world should be prided on Airlabs mission. I wish you all the success possible today and forever.

What is the total fan volume inside a car, expressed on db? Is this device loud? Does it turn on and off automatically?

I meant NOx (autocorrect)

Finally an advance filter to protect my entire family from the toxic levels of Nix in London!!!
Good job! Very interesting nano-scale engineering...!
Everyone driving in London for more than 10mins a day needs this.
