In today’s day and age, it is a struggle to find clean air. Not only for those who suffer from allergens, but also for many who live or work in polluted areas. Philips GoPure Compact 200 air purifier is one of the best solutions in the marketplace to help eliminate odors and allergens using a three-filter stage filtration system.
Pros of Philips GoPure Compact 200
The Unique Filter
Philips GoPure Compact 200 has been shown to be fast and efficient at filtering out 99% of the gasses, smoke, odors, pet scent, and bacteria from your car, as certified by a German independent test house (TUV). It does not produce any ozone, which can cause staining of carpets and the plastic trim of your car. The filters can last between eight to twelve months, depending on car use.
The three-filter stage filtration system works by first capturing the large particles, such as hair, in the pre-filter. The HEPA Filter then removes the dust, allergens, bacteria, and gasses. Finally, the HEPA Filter works on reducing the odors, such as smoke. Many of the people using Philips GoPure Compact say it not only makes the car smell better, but it also helps keep the air clean.
It will automatically switch on when the car is started and has an available blue light to show you when the air is clear. It will also let you know when it is time to change the filter, which is useful to many people, especially those with allergies.
At 2.6 pounds, it only uses 3 Watts, and the cord is a 13 foot, a 12V power cable that allows you to move it easily. This gives the portability for the unit to be placed in your car where it will work the best for you.
It will stay on for one hour after the car is shut off to clean the air before automatically shutting off continually.
The GoPure Compact 200 has three-speed settings which allow you to adjust the power of the system as well as to run quietly.

Cons of the Philips GoPure Compact 200
Many of the complaints regarding the Philips GoPure Compact 200 car air purifier stem from the mounting apparatus. The suction cup has fallen off or not stuck on. Along the same lines, the buckle mount has broken off on occasion. These can be easily fixed by a do-it-yourself approach or by contacting Philips. But these are rare cases. Usually, everything works fine since Philips is a brand for quality.
Turning On and Off
Another issue a few people have had is realizing there is no on and off switch with the Philips GoPure Compact 200. It is made to go on when you start the car and will remain on for an hour after the car is turned off.
The biggest complaint had to do not so much with the product, but with getting customer service to help them with no clear line of communication from Philips. Please be aware it may be hard to get help in this area if there is a problem with your equipment. But fortunately, there are really rare cases when you need customer support because equipment works flawlessly.
In closing, Philips GoPure Compact 200 is a small and convenient way to keep your car smelling fresh and clean. Outside of a minor mounting issue, the unit itself creates a fantastic clean smelling car and fresh air as well as eliminating odors, allergens, and hair.
