Afloia Mage Air Purifier – A Good Option for Large Rooms?

The Afloia Mage is a huge air purifier equiped with a four-stage filtration technology that covers rooms of 538 sq. ft.

Our Verdict





Operating cost


Value for money


Ease of use




The air purifier market is flooded with new devices being released almost daily. The Afloia Mage is an air purifier from a relatively new manufacturer in this field, and I first tried it more than three years ago.

This large air purifier can clean the air 4.8 times in one hour in a 538 sq. ft. (50 m²) room, aligning it with some of the most powerful air purifiers on the market.

I have tested several air purifiers from Afloia, including the innovative Afloia Q10, an air purifier and dehumidifier combo. Afloia is an innovative brand that focuses primarily on air purifiers, but it also offers some 2-in-1 combinations, such as the previously mentioned model.

Overall, the Afloia Mage is an interesting air purifier worth considering. However, its lack of advanced features, having only two fan speeds, and a filter that doesn’t last as long as those in some competing air purifiers are drawbacks that may deter some buyers from purchasing it.

What we really like?

  • Even though I said that the Afloia Mage lacks advanced features, it is equipped with an air quality sensor, air quality indicator, and auto mode features, allowing you to automate your device easily.

  • It covers large rooms of 538 sq. ft. (50 m²) and cleans the air 4.8 times in one hour in such spaces.

  • The Afloia Mage made okay results in performance tests, especially in rooms smaller than the recommended dimensions.

  • It operates very quietly in sleep mode, making it an excellent choice for master bedrooms.

  • The Afloia Mage’s four-stage filtration technology is its primary defense against airborne pollutants. This system includes a pre-filter, HEPA filter, activated carbon filter, and UV-C light.

What could be better?

  • Lack of good support, a low-quality user manual, and lack of information on the Afloia website.

  • Replacing the filter can be complicated, requiring significant effort to remove it.

  • The Afloia Mage has only two fan speeds: sleep and max speed. Although it also has an auto mode, I would prefer having more manual fan speed.

  • The UV-C light isn’t powerful enough to make any significant changes in the air quality.

Full Review

Afloia Mage is a new air purifying model that was recently released. Afloia claims that this is their best model and predicts a bright future.

Afloia Mage is designed for rooms up to 538 sq. ft. The device has an unusual design and construction, which is a bit different from the models I used to test. It uses 4-stage filtration, which includes filtration with UV-C light.

I have tested the Afloia Mage for several weeks in my home conditions, and I have also performed the standard tests I do with all air purifiers I have tested.

The Afloia Mage is suitable for large rooms such as bedrooms, living rooms, or offices. Thanks to air quality detection, you will always know how good the air in the room is.

Design and Size

The build quality is good, and the plastic is high-grade, entirely satisfactory for this type of device. The only complaint I have about the plastic is the grille on the top of the device, which seems a little too flexible and fragile to me. 

Afloia Mage Air Purifier - Design
This is how the Afloia Mage looks from the side. Photo: / Milan Antonic

The Afloia Mage design is tower-shaped. The air inlet is located on the underside and occupies one-half of the device. Afloia Mage is white, except for the control panel, which is black, and the grilles on the top of the device are gray.

There is a hole on the back for easier transfer, which is very practically placed, and I really like what the designers imagined regarding this detail as well. The design is modern and innovative, so Afloia Mage will easily fit into any environment. Especially if you are a fan of a slightly ‘livelier’ design because Afloia Mage uses an air quality indicator. The LED lights on the top of the device glow in different colors.

Display and Touch Panel to control the device 

The touch button display is the only tool to control Afloia Mage. The display consists of two parts; the bottom is a bar with touch buttons. There are buttons for power, fan speed, UV-C button, and timer button. Above the bar of touch, buttons are indicators for fan speeds, UV-C, filter reset indicator, timer, and PM 2.5 indicator. 

Afloia Mage Display and Touch Buttons Bar

I think the display and buttons’ position could be better because it is sometimes challenging to press the desired button. For this type of device, the best position for the control buttons is somewhere on the top, on the top of the device, which many other brands practice. 

Above all, the buttons are precise, intuitive, and easy to use. Each time you press the button, you will hear a beep sound. 

Afloia Mage will remember the last mode, so the next ignition will start working at the same speed. However, if you start the device for the first time, it will start in auto mode.


The air inlet occupies half the device. Afloia Mage draws air from three sides on the underside of the device. The air is then filtered through a pre-filter, HEPA filter, and carbon filter. If UV light is on, the air is additionally filtered. The clean, filtered air exits through the grilles on the device’s upper side, moving vertically upwards. 

Size and Dimensions 

The Afloia Mage Air purifier weighs 10.5 lb, which is not that heavy given its size. The carrying handle is practical, so you can easily move the device from room to room if necessary. The dimensions of the device are 10.6 x 12 x 22.1 inches. 

What’s in the box? 

When you buy the device, you get 1x Afloia Mage, 1x 3-in-1 Filter, and 1x User Manual.

Features Overview

Air Quality Sensor

Afloia Mage uses an air quality sensor to read the amount of PM 2.5 particles in the room. The smart sensor is located on the back of the device. It does not need to be cleaned like you need to clean it on Levoit LV-PUR131 or Airdog X3 air purifiers.

The air quality sensor works in combination with other features that Afloia Mage offers, such as an air quality indicator and auto mode. Besides, there is a screen located within the touch control panel. The current concentration of PM 2.5 particles is displayed on the screen. I like that everything is in real-time and that you can check the current air quality at any time on the display.

Based on PM 2.5 particles, you will know the air quality in your room exactly. According to the instructions I received from Afolia, the parameters for air quality are: from 0-75 air is excellent, from 75-150 moderate air pollution and over 150 high pollutions.

Air Quality Indicator

The Air Quality Indicator is located on the top of the device. It works following the air quality sensor, from which it receives data in real-time. The air quality indicator processes the data it receives and lights up different colors based on that.

If the air quality indicator lights up blue, it signifies that the air in the room is good. The yellow color indicates that the air in the room is normal. And if you see red color, then that means that the room’s air quality is unfortunately bad.

UV Light

Afloia Mage uses UV-C light as the fourth stage of filtration. UV-C is hidden inside the device, and it is not possible to access the light. It is located approximately in the middle of the device, on the back.

UV-C is an exciting technology that raises the Afloia Mage air purifier’s complete filtration to a whole new level. I will write more about this technology in the filtration section.

Timer Button

A timer is an option that I think is necessary for all devices that do not have advanced ECO mode or advanced auto mode. The timer will significantly facilitate the use of the device. It can be set to three states: 2h, 4h, and 8h. The timer works by selecting the time, and the device will automatically shut down when the time is up. For example, if you set the timer to 2h, Afloia Mage will turn off after 2h.

Filter Reset Indicator

This is an option that is standard in almost all air purifiers that I have had the opportunity to test so far. The filter reset indicator is an irreplaceable feature, which I like a lot. It makes it much easier for me to use an air purifier. Especially since I don’t have to be so careful and always have on my mind when it’s time to replace the filter.

The filter reset indicator is located on display in the upper left corner if we look directly at the device.

Certified Device Safe to Use

Afloia air purifiers are CARB-certified. This means agreement with California’s rigorous criteria for indoor cleaning devices, CE/FCC/RoHS/ ETL/GS certified, and ETL listed.

Room Coverage and CADR Rating

Aphloia Mage is designed for rooms up to 538 sq. ft. The device has powerful airflow. It is ideal for open rooms and larger spaces. CADR for Afloia Mage is about 236 CFM.

Filtration Technology

Afloia Mage uses 4-in-1 filtration. This includes a 3-in-1 Filter + UV-C light that turns on optionally. The first stage of filtration is pre-filter. The second stage of filtration is the HEPA filter. The third stage of filtration is the activated carbon filter.

Afloia Mage filters are not washable and should never be washed. Filters are located on the device’s underside and occupy almost 50% of the surface of the complete device.

Afloia Mage filters are large, which means that even if you put this air purifier in a large room, it will do a magnificent job.

Check Filter Price On Amazon


The pre-filter is the first stage of filtration—the first defense line against the largest airborne particles. The pre-filter stops large particles from reaching the HEPA filter, thus extending its service life.

Pre-filter is necessary as a filtration stage because other filters’ duration would be significantly reduced without it. Stops hair, fiber, dust, and similar particles. The pre-filter should not be washed, but it would be good to clean it from time to time with a dry cloth, especially if a lot of dust accumulates.

HEPA Filter

The HEPA filter is the primary stage of filtration. HEPA filters remove at least 99.97% of airborne particles 0.3 microns or larger—ideal for removing pollen, small pet dander particles, and dust from the air. HEPA will also trap fine dust, dust particles, mold, and cigarette fumes.

Carbon filter

The activated carbon filter is the third stage of filtration. Activated carbon filters remove odors like cigarette smoke, fireplace fumes, VOCs, pet odors, and kitchen odors. The carbon filter is not made of carbon pellets.

The carbon filter at Afloia Mage is a fibrous filter coated with carbon.

We have seen a similar carbon filtration in the Winix C535 air purifier and the Blueair 411 air purifier.

UV-C Light

UV-C light is turned on optionally. If you want to turn on UV-C, you need to keep your finger for 3 seconds on the UV/Light button. If we place the product in front of us and look at the buttons, it is the third button on the left.

UV-C light does not produce ozone. This light is quite different from, for example, the UV-C light in the GermGuardian AC4825 air purifier. The UV-C light type is different, and with Afloia Mage, the UV light bulb is not replaceable.

Info from the Afloia company: UV-C light assists in germ elimination and, together with Titanium dioxide, reduces volatile organic compounds.

How to replace the Afloia Mage filter?

Afloia Mage filters should be changed when you see the filter reset indicator signal. The filter reset indicator will light up for an average every 3-6 months. Depending on how often and how you use the device, the indicator may light up sooner or later.

Besides, my suggestion is to check the filters’ condition every now and then. Occasionally it would be good to vacuum or clean the inside of the device—especially the filter cover on the inside, which I noticed kept the most dust.

Total time: 10 minutes.

Step 1

Shutdown the device and pull the plug from the wall. Then press the switch and open the back cover.

Does Afloia Mage produce ozone?

To confirm that Afloia Mage does not produce ozone, I directly contacted the Afloia company. They sent me a document with a test done for UV-C light. According to that test, Afloia Mage does not produce ozone.

Afloia Mage uses UVC3535 light, which works at 270nm. Another guarantee that Afloia Mage is safe to use is the CARB certificate, which confirms that the device does not produce harmful ozone.

Noise Test

Honestly, I’m not a fan of devices that use less than 3 speeds. Afloia Mage is such a device. It basically uses two speeds, namely Speed ​​H and sleep mode. There is also an auto mode that will switch the speed between the two mentioned based on the room’s air quality. I think it would be great to have two more speeds on this model.

Afloia Mage Noise Test

In sleep mode, Afloia Mage produces a sound of 41.7 dBA, while in Speed H, it makes a sound of 64.7 dBA.

The motor is high quality, and no rattling or unpleasant sound is heard at any speed.

Below, you can see a table with all the measurements. My measurements may differ from the manufacturer’s measurements because I perform measurements at home, not in the laboratory.

Speed Value (dBA)
Sleep Mode 41.7 dBA
Speed H 64.7 dBA

Performance Tests

I tested Afloia Mage in various rooms and in multiple conditions. I tried the device in rooms of different sizes to confirm performance.

The biggest complaint I generally have with this device is that it only has two speeds. In my opinion, there was an opportunity to get at least two more speeds here.

In my opinion, the smart sensor could be a little more accurate. I have compared it to several other air quality measuring tools. The problem is that it doesn’t show values similar ​​to those of the tools I use to read air quality. Also, I think a smart sensor sensitivity adjustment option would come in handy, something identical to the Coway AP-1512HH air purifier.

Although balancing between only two speeds, the auto mode has proven to be a handy feature. Below, I will show the tests that I think are the most interesting. I didn’t use a UV-C bulb in the tests, which I will show below.

Afloia Mage will start in an auto mode right at the first start. My advice is to use the device at Speed ​​H at the beginning for a while and only then switch to Sleep Mode. This way, you will quickly clean the air and maintain the air quality at a reasonable level.

560 sq. ft. Room Test

I tested Afloia Mage in a room of 560 sq. ft., the test lasted 60 min. The device made good results and significantly improved air quality. The device was on Speed ​​H all the time.

After 60 minutes, Afloia Mage lowered the AQI from 129 to 20, thus improving the room’s air quality by about 85%. The slightly larger room seems to be a problem for Afloia Mage after all. However, I left the device to work for some time, and it continued to further improve the air quality in the room, which means that it can fight with larger rooms, but it needs more time. Below is a table with a detailed view of all values.

# Starting Baseline After 60min
PM 2.5 98.4 15.2
PM 10 137.8 21.3
Particles 142756 22155
AQI 129 20

320 sq. ft. Room Test

I tested Afloia Mage also in a room of 320 sq. ft. The device improved air quality by about 92% in 60 minutes. As you can see, this is a far better result than in a room of 560 sq. M. ft.

Afloia Mage lowered the Air Quality Index from 135 to 11.

# Starting Baseline After 60min
PM 2.5 103.2 8.3
PM 10 144.5 11.6
Particles 149761 12103
AQI 135 11

As you can see, Afloia Mage works great in smaller rooms, so you don’t have to limit yourself to rooms larger than 500 sq. ft.

320 sq. ft. Room Test – Auto mode

I tested Afloia Mage in the same room, in identical conditions, but this time with the auto mode on. As I already mentioned in the review, auto mode works following the air quality sensor, which sometimes does not give completely accurate air quality data in the room. 

Therefore, I would stick to manual mode, or I would recommend combining Speed ​​H with auto mode.

The device improved air quality by about 81% in 60 minutes. Afloia Mage lowered the Air Quality Index from 126 to 24.

# Starting Baseline After 60min
PM 2.5 96.3 18.6
PM 10 134.9 26.1
Particles 139721 27079
AQI 126 24

Operating Costs

Afloia Mage uses a 50W motor. I was a little surprised that a device of this strength has such a strong airflow. It’s just a sign that the engineers knew what they were doing and that the Mage motor’s quality is top-notch.

Afloia Mage Operating Costs

Afloia Mage actually has only two speeds. If you leave the device running at peak speed (Speed ​​H) 24 hours a day for a month, your electricity bill will increase by about $ 3.8. However, if you prefer auto mode, the device will save energy. Your electricity bill will be much lower.

Speed Power Usage (W)
Stand-by 0.8W
Sleep Mode 3.0W
Speed H 43.1W
Keep in mind that the light indicator will use 1.4W additional power when turned on, and the UV-C light will use 0.6W.

In addition to electricity bills, there is also the cost of replacing filters that need to be changed 2-3 times a year. The filter replacement price is slightly higher, combined with a slightly more frequent filter replacement. With the cost of electricity, Afloia Mage is not a small consumer on an annual basis.

Afloia Warranty and Customer Service

Support is accommodating, fast, and efficient. You can contact them via Facebook or Email.

The email to contact Afloia Support is

I tested how fast Afloia customer support is. I can say that I am delighted with the speed of support. The only complaint I have is the lack of phone support, but I hope that option will soon be available. In addition to the speedy support, I would also praise the quality of the response I received.

Namely, the Afloia company team did their best and answered all the messages that I sent very extensively and with quality. I received answers to all the questions I asked.
