I purchased this little negative ion air purifier because I respond very positively to negative ions, they lift my mood and keep me alert. Plus I have asthma and allergies and thought maybe it would help with that too and it does seem to.
The rechargeable battery holds a charge for quite a long time and the charger doesn't take up a lot of space. The blue light that tells you it's on and working is nice, but can be quite bright in a dark room even when wearing it backwards The blue light makes it very easy to tell when it's turned off or when the charge has run down. As far as the positive effects of the negative ions it is not quite as effective for me as a larger negative ion filter, but it DOES help and you can't wear a tower filter :) The size and weight are great. My only complaint is that the strap is not adjustable for people with larger necks. If you struggle with depression and find you feel better after it rains or snows, try one of these negative ion filters!

I bought two of these recently; one for me and one for my wife for a recent trip to Europe. We both wore them on the flight over (from Chicago to Frankfort) and both of us arrived in tip top shape. After a week of traveling about the Continent, mine had somehow been shoved in a bag with the power switch on (and we did not bring the chargers which will work on 220 with an adapter plug - which is not supplied). My wife's unit did work for the trip back (from Zurich to Washington, D.C.). The bottom line is that I had a miserable cold for the week following the trip and my wife came back with no symptoms at all.

So for $30, it appears to be a good investment.

I originally got 2 of these personal air purifiers several years ago at a clearance sale at a travel store going out of business. It has proven to be a wise investment. My wife and I do a lot of foreign travel by air. Often fellow travelers are sick and coughing/sneezing. Since getting these air purifiers, we haven't gotten sick at all from airline travel. We have also found it to be useful on trains and buses...or any transportation where you are mixing with the local population.
The PAP hangs by a lanyard and gently blows ionized air over the front of your face. The ionization provides the purification.
The one complaint I have had is the difficulty in finding replacement batteries. Even though the batteries are rechargable, they do not last long enough for really long travel, so a pre-charged battery is useful.
I don't leave home without it.

since I started using personal air purifiers on airplanes, I went from always getting sick at the start of my vacation to now staying healthy the whole time! I even wear it at work at times, when there are lots of colds and the flu are circulating through the office, and I rarely get sick. I love the rechargeable batteries as well.

I actually hung this over the handle of my infant daughters car seat when we traveled on an airplane. She didn't get sick on the numerous trans-america flights we took which is a good thing. I did attempt to reach the manufacturer of this product twice, leaving detailed messages both times to make sure it was safe to use this product around an infant but they never got back to me which I found extremely rude and annoying, thus only 3 stars. I went ahead and hung it up anyway though my husband teased me mercilessly and told me I'd probably spent $30 on a blue light. (it makes no noise, but a blue light turns on) I didn't care, planes are nasty.

I have allergies and asthma with a compromised immune system.
Every time I fly I would get very sick, bronchitis, pneumonia etc.
I bought this and wear it when flying and have not gotten sick at all.
My work installed a new rug and I could not stand the smell, again it made me sick.
I wore this every day for 3 months until the smell disapated.
And I was not sick when wearing this device.

Update on July 13, 2011:
After e-mailing the manufacturer and finding that the product was not defective, I decided to give it another try. While I didn't notice any dramatic or immediate improvement, after a few days I did notice that I was having less allergy symptoms, especially if I left it by my bed at night. I later purchased another small air purifier that is also sold on Amazon and I am much more pleased with that product. However, this one is much quieter. I now carry it in the outside pocket of my purse so that it can be pointed in my general direction but I no longer receive comments about its appearance.

Original review:
I believe I may have received a defective item so I can't comment on the effectiveness of this personal air purifier. However, I have requested a refund instead of an exchange because this is not something I want to wear in public. The item picture is accurate, however I felt it looked very cheap in person and the blue light on front is extremely noticeable. During the time I've been testing it out I've been asked numerous times if it has something to do with Iron Man!

On the other hand, it's light weight and truly is whisper-quiet. If people didn't comment on it's appearance so frequently it would be easy to forget I was wearing it!
