Departing from the usual Hepa filter technology, this elegant Lightair Evolution uses an ioniser to charge air molecules electromagnetically, then attracts pollutants – dust, smoke, pollen, etc – onto a metal particle collector. When you see that a fair amount of dust has settled on the cylindrical collector, just remove the collector and rinse it with water to clean – no need to worry about expensive filter replacements over the years. 

Will it work during haze season? Well, Lightair claims that the Evolution is able to remove particles as small as 0.01 micron, so consider those harmful PM2.5 compounds taken care of.
