Molekule's line of air purifiers is known for their stunning designs and unique PECO technology that destroys pollutants at a molecular level. In our Mini+ review, iMore's Managing Editor, Lory Gil, described it as "pretty darn close" to being perfect with the addition of app connectivity in this smaller model. The Molekule app reports air quality and allows for speed adjustments on the go, plus it will even show you filter life for both the PECO-Filter and Pre-Filter.
Despite its low price, we found the Elechomes Smart Wi-Fi Air Purifier to offer an impressive amount of features in our recent review. This purifier includes air quality monitoring, adjustable speeds, automatic mode, and quiet operation with a thoughtful night mode. If that weren't enough, it works with Alexa, Google, and even Apple's Siri through Shortcuts.

Dyson's futuristic HP04 goes above and beyond air purification with a cooling fan and heating modes.
