The Molekule Air Mini+ is designed for spaces of up to 250 square feet, and regulates pollutants in the air with its patented PECO Filter. The device filters and breaks down VOCs, bacteria, mold, viruses, allergens, and other pollutants.

Molekule said that the addition of Siri and ‌HomeKit‌ support enables users to accomplish quick and easy device setup, as well as control the air purifier from afar. The Air Mini+ can also be added into Apple's Home app, and set to automate alongside other ‌HomeKit‌ lights and accessories.

https://www.nytimes.com/wirecutter/reviews/best-air-purifier/#molekule-air-and-air-mini-the-worst-air-purifiers-weve-ever-tested "The Molekule Air turned in the worst performance on particulates of any purifier, of any size, of any price, that we have tested in the seven years that we have been producing this guide. The Air Mini outperformed it, but that’s not saying much: It still gave the second-worst performance we’ve ever seen."

Reminder that in June, Molekule had to retract nearly all of its advertising claims ('https://www.nytimes.com/wirecutter/blog/molekule-retracts-most-of-its-advertising-claims/') after an investigation, and is the worst-performing air purifier ever tested by The Wirecutter.

That's a nice minimalist painting... how does one go about painting something like that? Hmm.. ?
Step 1: cut a chunk of drywall out that sustained water damage.
Step 2: there is no step 2.

"Perhaps most notably, in its final recommendation in the appeal report, NARB wrote that Molekule’s long-standing claim to be “‘Finally, an air purifier that actually works,’ is not supported and should be discontinued.”

Molekule agreed."

That should say everything anyone ever needs to know about this air purifier. I'm actually ashamed Apple is selling it in their store.

I would recommend reading Molekule's response to this article. The gist of it is that Molekule's approach is different in that it's main function is to destroy, rather than trap particles, which the NY Times did not test for. I am not agreeing or disagreeing with either argument, I am just saying that it's not black and white.
They had every opportunity to prove it works. They appealed, had more chances and still couldn't prove it works. The guy that sells Snake Oil also says you can't test it the way you test other things... you need another device that he also sells to test it.

isn't there a whole controversy with Molekule's air purification claims and it's not recommended?
