Mooka EPI810 Price
How is this air purifier so cheap? And could we consider it an incredible value for an affordable air purifier that does so much right?
The asking price of Mooka EPI810 is now down to only $49, making it worth your cash more than the KOIOS EPI810. And if you finish our today review, you will see clearly the reason to buy the Mooka EPI810.
It’s getting harder and harder to find a bad air purifier nowadays. Air purifiers like Partu BS-08 and Airthereal ADH50B show that you don’t need to empty your coffers to improve your indoor air quality. Plus, air purifiers like the Airthereal ADH80 or AeraMax 100 show that you can get a fully-featured smart air purifier with little compromise for around $100.
But what if you venture even lower than $50? For that price, you had expected a potato of an air purifier, but Mooka managed to bring us with two budget air purifiers with decent performance to spend money for. The Mooka EPI810, with lower price than even the Mooka PM1220, is a great budget air purifier, but you’re probably not going to buy it. Here’s why.

Mooka EPI810 Design and Size
I don’t really know the relationship between these two Chinese air purifier brands, but unlike the case of Mooka PM1220 and KOIOS PM1220, there is no difference between the Mooka EPI810 and the KOIOS counterpart. Of course, except for the obvious difference in logo and name.
Here you go with an exact clone of the KOIOS EPI810, because I can’t track the origin of these products. The Mooka EPI810 comes with 7.5 inches in height and 7 inches in width. It is also compact to bring anywhere in your home, because it weighs only 3 lbs.
Around the bottom of this air purifier, we can see the air inlet. It uses a similar bottom-to-top air flow system concept, with 360° air intake grill. When you need to replace the filter, just flip Mooka EPI810 upside down, rotate the knob and remove the base, then you can take out the old filter.
It has only one button on top, exactly like the KOIOS EPI810, right?

Mooka EPI810 Filters
The Mooka EPI810 doesn’t only bear the resemblance to the KOIOS EPI810 from the outside, but it is running the same internal parts. We are breaking down the 3-stage air filtration system of this Mooka EPI810.
- Pre-filter – The fine preliminary filter can remove any large objects with size bigger than 100 microns, like pet, lint and fur.
- True HEPA filter – Eliminates 99.97% of any particles as small as 0.3 microns, like pollen, mold spores, pet dander, dust or dust mites.
- Activated Carbon filter – Captures and neutralizes various household odors.
I made a simple test for all the air purifiers under $50 from both Mooka and KOIOS, including of our today unit, in a room of 100 square feet. The Mooka EPI810, surprisingly, has a slightly better performance than the KOIOS counterpart, with efficiency of trapping 92% any particles down to 0.3 microns.
Just like the KOIOS EPI810, the Mooka EPI810 is certified by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to meet the ozone emission safety of below 0.05 parts per million (ppm). This certification allows the device to be shipped to California.
The genuine Mooka filter is also available for this air purifier, and you should replace it every 3-6 months, depending on use.

Mooka EPI810 Room Coverage
Mooka EPI810 raises the room coverage to 200 square feet, despite of similar fan power as the KOIOS EPI810. However, I believe it should be used for a much smaller space.
The ACH of Mooka EPI810 is 2X.
The CADR of Mooka EPI810 is only 30 cfm in general.

Mooka EPI810 Sound
The Mooka EPI810 is a compact air purifier, so it only generates average noise level, up to 35 decibels (db). It is even lower than the noise at library, so you won’t be disturbed while sleeping.
Together with the Night Light function, the Mooka EPI810 is a perfect selection for bedroom.

Mooka EPI810 Power Consumption
One of our most FAQs is “Do air purifiers use a lot of energy?” In fact, air purifier must be used for a long time to be efficient. And power consumption is one important criteria to review if this air purifier is good or not.
I have measured the power consumption of this Mooka EPI810, which is just below 8 watts. It is truly an air purifier designed to run 24/7.
For anyone who will use the Mooka EPI810 8 hours per day, you only need to spend just $3 each year.

Mooka EPI810 Additional Features
Mooka uses the same Night Light feature for the Mooka EPI810, exactly like what KOIOS did with their KOIOS EPI810. You will have a blue light from the ring around the device and the top control panel, which is great for a nightstand or a side table.
Other than that, the Mooka EPI810 is marketed to be easy to operate, so there is no complicated additional feature.
Mooka EPI810 Customer Service
The website of Mooka is truly identical to KOIOS, and looking at the appearances of their air purifiers and other products, we can easily conclude these two brands as one. The truth, however, remains unknown to tell.
As if you want to contact Mooka, you need to select the different line from KOIOS. For any trouble you have with their products, you can choose either email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone call at 855-558-8999. You can also follow their facebook page for more information.
Mooka also requires you to activate your product warranty online, so your air purifiers will be covered by an 1-year warranty and 90-day refund. The 1-year technical support for free is also applied for anyone who has registered.
The Mooka EPI810 is definitely for anyone who want a personal air purifier to improve health, but don’t really believe in the effect of the air purifiers, or don’t have a lot of money to spend. Let’s be honest, you’re probably not going to switch from your current device just to buy this $50 air purifier. If you are new for air purifier, the Mooka EPI810 is okay to grab, but you shouldn’t expect impressive performance for large rooms.
It has better price than the KOIOS EPI810, but well, it is still a budget air purifier with not much to give.
