The Westinghouse 1804 is a portable battery-powered air purifier that removes bacteria, viruses, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), odors, and allergens from the air.
I’ve done my best to follow CDC-recommended guidelines to keep myself and those around me safe from the coronavirus. I frequently wash my hands, wear a mask indoors, and keep my distance in public places.
The CDC says increasing ventilation and using an air purifier are additional steps you can take to help reduce indoor airborne contaminants. So, I recently added the Westinghouse 1804 to my PPE arsenal (next to my disinfectant wipe dispenser, of course) to use during a recent road trip.
This portable air purifier is rechargeable and uses a three-stage system to clean the air surrounding small spaces. It’s about the size of a metal lunchbox and weighs only 2 pounds. It comes with a leather strap for easy transport, lasts for up to 8 hours on a single charge, and has two fan speeds.
Although I haven’t taken the Westinghouse 1804 on an airplane just yet, it came in handy to purify the air during a recent hotel stay. As soon as I finished disinfecting commonly touched surfaces, I set the purifier on a table in my hotel room and fired it up. I appreciate how quiet it sounds and had no issues falling asleep while it ran.
