General

Blueair Cabin P2i car air purifier
The car air purifier is designed for use in cars and purifies the air while the car is in use.
Blueair´s HEPASilent™ advanced filtration technology enables the car air purifier to remove harmful pollutants (i.e. VOCs such as
Formaldehyde), particles and odors.
The car air purifier monitors the particle level in your car, displays the current air quality on your smartphone, and provides app control.
When Auto mode is active, the fan is automatically adjusted based on the readings from the built-in laser particle sensor, thus achieving optimal air purification.Blueair Cabin P2i Car Air Purifier -

A control knob (also 12V power) enables the driver to either change the fan speeds (3-speed options) or activate the Clean Cycle program. A USB charging port on the control knob is available for use by the driver or front seat passenger.
A 4,5 m cable connects the control knob to the main unit so that it can be installed behind a backseat headrest.
This product is equipped with an easily accessible USB charging port so that back seat passengers can charge another device while the cabin air is cleaned.
