Partu BS-03 Price
Naming products may not be the strength of this air purifier brand. The Partu BS-03 and Partu BS-08 are the most affordable air purifiers from this company, while the Partu BS-07 is a bit more expensive.
The entry into the Partu budget series begins with the Partu BS-03, which currently can be found from only $49 in the most well-known retailers. The Partu BS-03 has a surprisingly current design for a budget air purifier, which is quite unique for the company.

Partu BS-03 Design and Size
The Partu BS-03 looks chic and robust for its price, at least initially. Partu has opted for a plastic case that comes in black color. It appears to use a cylindrical design, with the top air outlet leaning on front for more direct air flow to users.
This air purifier is compact with the height of only 11.4 inches, and the width of 6.3 inches, which is a bit smaller than the Partu BS-08. At just 3.4 lbs, this is one of the lightest air purifier you can get for your bedroom. If you prefer a more solid option, you should look for the Partu BS-07 or Partu BS-10.
Partu BS-03 sports a simple bottom-to-top air flow system concept, and underneath the top air outlet is a space for adding essential oils. As a result, the device can both purify the air and release fragrance to create wellness.
We will have a simple control panel on front of this air purifier, together with LED indicators for buttons and current fan speed.

Partu BS-03 Filters
Partu BS-03 uses a simple-yet-reliable 3-stage air cleaning system, which is a plus for an air purifier that is under $50.
- 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 – Traps 99.9% of any particles as small as 0.3 microns, like pollen, mold spores, pet dander, dust or dust mites.
- Activated Carbon filter – Removes cigarette smoke, odors and cooking smells.
Partu BS-03 is certified by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to meet the safety of ozone emission, as the ozone emission concentration limit is only 0.05 parts per million (ppm). It is reasonable as the air purifier only uses mechanical filters, so it could be completely 100% ozone-free.
I used the same test for all Partu devices, in a room of 100 square feet and the duration of 1 hour. The Partu BS-03, with the smallest size, had the lowest score of only 99.9% efficiency for trapping any particles down to 0.3 microns.
You should replace the filter every 3-6 months, depending on use. The air filter is easy and cheap to change, and you can easily find other alternatives for the Partu BS-03’s filter. Here is the genuine filter of Partu BS-03, which is only $25.

For example, you will have a Child lock to prevent any accidental changes of settings.
Partu BS-03 is also the only unit in the family to have a fragrance sponge, so you can easily add a few drops of essential oils for aromatherapy. You can choose between citrus, honeydew melon, musk, vanilla, orris and vetiver for difference fragrance.
If you want to sleep in a complete darkness, you will want to turn off the light of this air purifier via control panel. And finally, we still have a LED indicator for filter replacement, as well as a basic filter reset button.
Partu BS-03 Customer Service
Partu doesn’t have a website for their products, so it is quite difficult to learn about their customer service. We don’t know where to contact this manufacturer for support, either via phone or email.
It seems Partu will provide a 2-year warranty for all their products, but if you need full refund, you must refer to return policy of the retailer that you’ve purchased from.
The Partu BS-03 is a good-to-go low-range air purifier, as you can get it for under $50. It is portable to be installed anywhere, and it doesn’t produce ozone.
