Want a portable air purifier that’s even cheaper than the most popular devices in the market? Partu hooks it up with the new Partu BS-08 – a colorful air purifier with the high-quality air filtration system. So, today we will have an in-depth Partu BS-08 Review, which is also the final air purifier review for the Chinese company at the moment.
Update: As the Partu BS-08 appears to be fully sold out, I recommend properly checking our deal before reading this review, as the review itself is pretty lengthy.

Though Partu isn’t a good air purifier company to start with, well they don’t even have a proper website, this brand is still popular for their crazily low-budget air purifiers, especially with the new Partu BS-08 – the ace with more than 1000 reviews on Amazon and mostly positive. To be honest, an air purifier that is tested and certified by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) is truly a force to be reckoned with. Now, it’s time for Partu BS-08 Review.
Other Partu’s Air Purifier Reviews:
Partu BS-08 Price
Partu BS-08 is the latest Partu portable air purifier challenger, with a colorful design that’s leagues beyond common plain devices. It also rivals flagships of its own family – the Partu BS-07 or new Partu BS-10 in terms of performance.
The Partu BS-08 is the best sign yet of Chinese air purifier manufacturers in low-range segment, as others mostly are the cheap devices without any certification.
Here we have a new air purifier to replace the old Partu BS-03 with all better things that are enough to rival today’s best air purifiers in low-range segment, all for $49. As usual, we have a pretty good deal for the Partu BS-08 right below.
That obviously contrasts with popular portable air purifiers in the market right now that costs $79 to $99 at full retail, like the Airthereal ADH80, Levoit Vista 200 and AeraMax 100. However, I’ve seen a lot of air purifiers that come with the same price tag as the Partu BS-08, holding the same power, like the Airthereal ADH50B, Bissell MyAir, RENPHO RP-AP068 or Levoit LV-H126.

Partu BS-08 Design and Size
Despite of being a minor brand, Partu never disappoint us with their unique design. The Partu BS-08 reduces the price of ultra-affordable, but, thanks to its colorful Night Light option.
The air purifier in encased in cheap plastic with deceiving black paint we saw coating the Airthereal ADH50B. It feels solid, standing as high as 17 inches. Putting it besides the Partu BS-03, you can know that it is much bigger.
For extra flair, Partu made an air quality monitor under the air outlet, which again sits at the bottom of the control panel, takes the form of a dimly lit colorful ring which changes at your will.
Partu BS-08 runs a similar bottom-to-top air flow system concept, and the air intake is around the base of the air purifier. The air inlet is covered by the top control panel, so Partu BS-08 can disperse the air flow for a nearly 360° output.
The Partu BS-08 weighs 6.5 lbs, which is nearly the same as the console Partu BS-10. It is still easy to grab and move to anywhere.

Partu BS-08 Filters
To decide the performance of one air purifier, normally we will look at the quantity and quality of the air filters, as well as the air filter types. Partu BS-08 uses an only 4-stage air cleaning system in Partu family, with an unique 5-in-1 True HEPA filter.
- 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 99.97% 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.
- Ionizer – Neutralizes the pollutants with the anion. Can be switched on/off.
Partu BS-08 uses a membrane net to avoid carbon leak, and therefore increases the efficiency of the current carbon filter. Moreover, it has a mesh scaffold to fix the position of True HEPA filter, and provides one additional layer of filtration.
The Partu BS-08 is the only unit in this family to have an ion generator. However, it is still a certified air purifier by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to meet the safety of ozone emission concentration limit of 0.05 parts per million. You can use it without any trouble for sure.
Partu BS-10 remains the most simple yet effective air cleaning system in the world, with a preliminary filter, a True HEPA filter that captures any particles down to 0.3 microns and a carbon filter for odor removal. Being completely 100% ozone-free, the Partu BS-10 is certified by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to meet the safety of ozone emission. You can use this air purifier with ease of mind.
With the same fan power as the Partu BS-03, I made a simple test for this Partu BS-08, to run in a room of 100 square feet. After 1 hour, this air purifier had a lot better performance than the predecessor, to meet 99.5% efficiency of trapping any particles down to 0.3 microns.
Partu BS-08 uses a brand new air filter, but I advise you to change the filter every 6 months, because this is still a portable air purifier. You can easily replace the filter by turning the bottom cover counterclockwise, setting the filter on and closing the cover back.

Partu BS-08 Room Coverage
The Partu BS-08 is effective in a small room, at maximum 160 square feet as suggested by the manufacturer.
The ACH of Partu BS-08 is 3X to 4X. If you want the air purifier to exchange the air in your room every 15 minutes, the room coverage is just only 110 square feet.
The CADR of Partu BS-08 is 60 cfm in general. This CADR rating places the Partu BS-08’s fan power in the middle of Partu family.

Partu BS-08 Sound
Being a portable air purifier for bedroom, the Partu BS-08 also inherits the perfect Ultra Quiet operation from other members. In fact, this air purifier is the quietest device to use for good night.
I’ve measured the noise level of this Partu BS-08 to be only 24 decibels (db), which is just like the noise of pouring water or near-silent rustling leaves. You won’t notice any sound from this setting for sure.
The highest noise level of this air purifier is only 48 decibels, and you can enjoy running it on highest while sleeping, as it is just the white noise.

Partu BS-08 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.
Partu BS-08 runs the solid motor construction, which can only be found from the latest products of Partu family. It can not only reduce the risk of fire hazard due to overheating, but also keep the power consumption as low as 35 watts.
If you run the Partu BS-08 for at least 8 hours per day, you only need to pay $12.5 each year.

Partu BS-08 Additional Features
Partu BS-08 is just a budget air purifier, even in a ‘budget’ family like Partu, so it doesn’t have the high-end features like the Partu BS-10. Instead, it is more friendly to use in the bedroom, thanks to low fan speed and an unique Night Light function, with 7 changeable colors. You can turn off the light if you only want the complete darkness.
The Partu BS-08 is the only device in the lineup without a Child lock feature. Luckily, we still have a LED indicator for filter replacement, to remind you when to change the air filter.
Partu BS-08 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.
Partu BS-08 deserves to be the best Partu air purifier at the moment, with reasonable price and good overall performance.
