I really hoping the Air Oasis Air Purifier Models had something unique and effective (I had my fingers crossed) because they are one of the only Made-in-the-USA products (as they claim). It does have something unique, but effectiveness will be challenged in this review.
I was excited by the idea of buying American. However on further review the claim reads: “it’s assembled in the US”. I’m not really sure it’s “made in the US” after some research on it. [Please correct me if you know for sure]
While there are several models available this review will focus on the technology (which is used across their models) in the Air Oasis 3000 G3 Residential Air Sanifier Purifier. The Air Oasis Air Purifier weighs in a mere 6 pounds, has no fan, yet claims that it can be more effective at time (emphasis on “at times”) than a HEPA filter. The two primary technologies it uses are reviewed in more detail below.
[Note: I am still in the process of doing a video review and receiving more info on whether the nickel nano technology has superior effects on viruses, germs, etc.]

Stages of Purification
Now let’s take a look at the technology for cleaning the air. The air oasis air purifier has 2 stages
Stage 1 Nano nickel HCT PCO technology. Works to enhance UV, similar to nano titanium Dioxide. only works with UV-C. Enhances the UV effect on the air.
Stage 2 UV – C light. According to them a special treatment on the lamps enhances the life and function of the UV over regular UV light in other air purifiers.
Pro’s & Con’s
1 – Includes an advanced Nano Nickel process to enhance UV
2 – Includes UV-C for killing germs, viruses, mold, etc.
3 – Covers a large area
4 – No fan (which is a pro and a con) which saves electricity and makes it silent
1 – A bit expensive
2 – I don’t recommend it for dust or pollen because it lacks HEPA
3 – Expensive replacement parts
4 – Not a good allergy air purifier in most cases
5 – No Fan – while it saves electricity and runs quiet it also moves no air which relates to it’s lack of pollen and dust removal.

If you were looking to sanitize the air this air purifier might work for you. If you want to remove dust, pollen, and allergens then this air purifier will let you down. The claims of being silent and efficient in it’s low power consumption are true – simply because it doesn’t have a fan. However the fact that it doesn’t move air speaks to the fact that it doesn’t remove dust or pollen.
I have no doubt that it is better than an ionic breeze air purifier, which similarly had no fan and used pennies a day. However I prefer a unit with a HEPA filter for the reason that it cleans the air.
