I ordered myself one because my grandfather smokes a lot of cigars, and when I went to pick it up about 2 days ago, it looked new, until I opened the box and it was disgusting inside as if someone has been using it for YEARS plus it doesn't even work! I'm waiting for my other purchases to be ready for pickup before I return it but don't waste your time going it online, if your going to get it go in stores smh.
Don't waste your money
These gadgets just do not do a serious enough job to be worth a buck. I unpacked the one I just bought and put it together using the instructions, to then find out (surprise) it takes C batteries. Not a word about the batteries required anywhere on the box, but the picture shows what definitely looks like an AA. Very deceptive. So when I saw it takes (4) C batteries I was annoyed at having to make yet another trip to the store for the proper batteries. I keep AAs and AAAs around, but who keeps C batteries lying around? So my trip back to the store will be to return this toy. I will use my regular HEPA room filter when my smoker friends come visit so they don't have to go out into the bitter cold. I have asthma but my room size HEPA more than cleans the air without my guests having to hold their cigarettes inside a little box that doesn't do anything effective.
WORKED FOR 3 WEEKS
Worked well for 3 weeks. Smoke was drawn into the filter and I blew the smoke into the ashtray. Kept the area pretty much smoke free. Was pleased at first. Then the batteries died. Bought two sets of "D" batteries. One set to use later. Replaced the batteries and the dern thing wouldn't turn on. I always kept the lid down when not in use. So disappointed! Now I have to try and find another one. I won't be buying this one again!
Holmes portable is one of the best for price.
PROS - Inexpensive and it works. filters are relatively cheap and easy to change. Actually filters out the smoke, tar and odor. Comes in battery style and 110 volt style. CONS - Filters MUST be changed out often. Can not find the 110 version that is advertised. Entire unit must be replaced because of cigarette residue. This is a pretty good unit. Some things you can do to make it better are - Double up the filter. Dish washer will clean it, but it must dry for a long time and be lubed with WD-40. It's easier just to replace the unit. Just remember, it does do the job.
Worked well 4/5
When I was living with my Mom & stepdad he would chain smoke the cheapest cigarettes possible. It was unbearable in my bedroom and I couldn't sleep. I couldn't even walk in the living room where he hung out after work because of the stench. This doesn't eliminate all of the smoke but it at least sucks it up without you having to inhale the smoke. It made it bearable to breathe. Uses up losts of batteries so you might as well by the rechargeable kind and cycle them out.
