It is new year and Levoit doesn’t take too long to release a new air purifier. The Levoit Core P350 is the first to be seen, and it acts much like a silver version of the most popular Levoit Core 300. Whatever the air purifier is, we’re happy to deliver the first and most thorough Levoit Core P350 Review for Breathe Quality’s readers.
Updated: The new Levoit Core 600S is out, which is the current flagship of Levoit.

- High-quality air filter customization

Levoit doesn’t let their loyal customers wait much, with the quick release of the new Levoit Core P350 right in January. Well, the most popular air purifier brand learns much from the behavior of their customers, and this air purifier is supposed to be the Levoit Core 300 with its own Pet Allergy air filter. Are you ready to love the new air purifier like the current best air purifier? Let’s find out in our today Levoit Core P350 Review.
Levoit Core P350 Price
The Levoit Core P350 isn’t the Levoit new ‘everything air purifier’ for the moment, as it is very much the same as the original Levoit Core 300, despite of the new silver color option.
Well, it couldn’t be a new taste for your room decor, but this air purifier is designed specially for every pet problem. If you are a pet owner (like me), and you don’t want to go through the process to find and use the proper air filter for your Core 300, the Levoit Core P350 is simply for you.
There is no hidden perk from the previous model, but just know Levoit is asking for a little more money. The Levoit Core P350 is officially $129 on Levoit website, and we need to wait longer to see a decent reduction in price. Right now, you can look for the Levoit Vital 100 as an alternative, but with a different design.
With the new high-end air filter for pets, the Levoit Core P350 is the worthy challenger of the Blue Pure 411 and GermGuardian AC5250PT, which are meant for any pet owners. If you can pay for just $20 more, you can choose between the Airthereal APH260 or Medify MA-14, too, with much higher fan power than our today unit.
But if you are loyal fan of Levoit, don’t hold back. The Levoit Core P350 is an interesting edition based on the old Core 300, and we should look for more models using the same idea as this device.

Levoit Core P350 Design and Size
If you want the latest Levoit air purifier to be significantly different, you will be disappointed for sure. The Levoit Core P350 may have new brushed silver color option, but for the design and size, it is technically the Levoit Core 300. For anyone who want the next level of the Core 300, check the new Levoit Core 400S.
Updated: Like I said, it is technically the Core 300, and you can even buy a Core P300 at higher price. We haven’t tested this new device, but we believe it is the Core 300 with a word “Pet” on it.
I was immediately drawn to the Levoit Core P350 as the better looking version. It has the same color tone as the new Vital 100, instead of using the traditional white color since Levoit LV-H132. Other dimensions remain the same, with just 14 inches in height and 8.7 inches in width.
This air purifier comes with the cylindrical design concept, together with the same smooth flowing curves, and same 360° air intake grill like the Core 300 model. It’s Levoit’s marginally better answer to any other low-end air purifiers, and they’re proud to keep that on Levoit Core P350.
Sold? You will have the bottom-to-top air flow system concept, to help pull out the clean air directly toward the user. This air purifier is designed for bedroom, so you can sleep better with your cats and dogs. Hooray!
Change happens on the top control panel, but only Levoit purists can find. You will have new icon for the Pet Proof, which is basically the original Child Lock function.

Levoit Core P350 remains the weight of 7.5 lbs, and it is a truly compact air purifier to bring anywhere in your home.

Levoit Core P350 Filters
I have many expectations for the Levoit Core P350, in terms of air filtration system, as it is the main different thing from the old Core 300. Still, this air purifier runs the signature 3-stage air cleaning system, without any ionizer or UV-C light filter to be completely ozone-free.
- Pre-filter – This new non-woven nylon pre-filter is able to capture more large particles such as dust, pet hair, and loose fur. You need to clean by vacuum this filter regularly because it is only effective for a short time.
- True HEPA filter – Levoit Core P350 uses a True HEPA Filter to reduce 99.97% of as small as 0.3 microns allergens, pet dander, virus particles, pollen, and bacteria particles.
- Activated Carbon Filter – This Activated Carbon filter tackles smoke and unpleasant odors from the kitchen, your pets, or even the outdoors.
The special and advanced Activated Carbon filter is what we’re expecting for. Levoit Core P350 upgrades the ARC Formula from the basic Pet Allergy air filter of previous model, and turns any air pollutants into harmless molecules, to avoid second-hand pollution.
You can think of this formula as an extra layer of protection, which is the anti-microbial treatment using in other high-end air purifiers. Finally, we can’t forget the high-quality H13 True HEPA filter of Levoit, which can reduce up to 99.97% of any particles down to 0.3 microns.
However, new air filter is only made for special treatment against pet odors and dander. Basically the Levoit Core P350 is just the last year’s model, so it has the same efficiency of trapping airborne pollutants. Quick result, the Levoit Core P350 can trap 99.9% of any particles as small as 0.3 microns, in a room of 150 square feet for 1 hour.
The filter’s name of this air purifier was once named Core P350-RF. However, it would be a hassle to keep checking the product pages of different air filters that Levoit decided to lump it together with the air filter of the Core 300. It is still recommended to change after 6-8 months, for optimal performance.

Levoit Core P350 Room Coverage
Levoit Core P350 introduces the new Vortexair technology, but it is perhaps the same as the Advanced cyclone technology in Levoit Core 300. It can increase the fan power in a compact air purifier, and the manufacturer suggests to use Levoit Core P350 in room of 215 square feet.
The ACH of Levoit Core P350 is 5X. Employs the high fan power of the previous model, this air purifier can exchange the air every 12 minutes.
The CADR of Levoit Core P350 is 140 Dust/ 141 Smoke/ 145 Pollen (cfm). I believe this is the best fan power result for an air purifier in around $100 budget you can get.

Levoit Core P350 Sound
Like any Levoit air purifiers, the Levoit Core P350 follows the same rule to be exceptionally silent, so you can sleep peacefully with it. According to Levoit, they use the AC capacitor motor to keep noise level as low as possible. On lowest speed, the Levoit Core P350 is only 24 decibels (db), which is even quieter than whisper.
Levoit even trademarks this quiet operation as the QuietKEAP technology, and the highest noise level is just only 50 decibels, which is audible, but won’t disturb you.

Levoit Core P350 Power Consumption
An air purifier is designed to run for a long time to be more efficient, making the high-priority question in Breathe Quality is: “Do air purifiers use a lot of energy?” To know the answer, we will need to check the power consumption of this air purifier.
Levoit Core P350 has a rated power of 45 watts, with the standby power less than 0.8 watts. Because the original Core 300 is an Energy Star air purifier, we can believe in the new Core P350.
If you run this air purifier 8 hours each day, you only need to pay $16 per year.

Levoit Core P350 Additional Features
Levoit may call their Child Lock function as the Pet Lock function, but this is basically the same feature. Well, I guess they really want this air purifier to be the best air purifier for pets, right?
Again, we have a Sleep Mode to keep the fan power on lowest setting, and dim all display lights. To make the Levoit Core P350 more useful, you can use the Timer setting, which is now increasing from maximum of 8 hours to 12 hours.
There is still one LED indicator for filter replacement, so you can keep track of when to change the air filter. However, if you want more smart features, take a look on the Levoit LV-PUR131S instead.
Levoit Core P350 Customer Service
Levoit is a brand that strongly focuses on their customers and community. If you purchase one product from them, they will give all you need to set up and operate it. The negative reviews of bad customer service are nearly non-existent.
There is only one thing, they give an only basic 1-year warranty. To get one another warranty, you need to have some free register.

With new silver color option and a high-quality pet air filter, the Levoit Core P350 is an interesting update for the #1 popular Levoit Core 300. Its starting price point may be $20 higher, but I believe we will soon get a discount for the new air purifier.
