Rabbit Air BioGS 2.0 Review

Retailing for approximately $369.95 (with a more effective version available for $399.95), this is by no means an inexpensive unit. However, considering the quality of the Rabbit Air BioGS 2.0’s performance, we at Air Conditioners Rated believe this figure to certainly be appropriate. With a high estimated area of coverage, and a 4-stage air filtration system, high quality units such as this will always cost a bit more than your average air purifier. Read our full review below for more information.

 

Cleaning Capabilities

The Rabbit Air BioGS 2.0 services an estimated area of up to 550 square feet, providing two complete air exchanges per hour on the highest setting. Thus, we would class this unit as suitable for a relatively large area of a typical family home. Enjoying moderate CADR (Clean Air Delivery Rating) scores, we would certainly recommend this unit for installation for areas up to the estimated range.

Here are the specific CADR scorings across a range of specific criteria:

  • Smoke: 193
  • Dust: 200
  • Pollen: 208

The Rabbit Air BioGS 2.0 benefits from a 4-stage system that functions as follows; A pre-filter will first collect all large airborne particulates that pass through the device, including hair, dust, etc. The air will then pass through an activated carbon filter, which will remove odours from the air. The star of this 4-stage filtration system is undoubtedly the BioGS HEPA filter, which will not only trap small airborne particulates down to 0.3 microns, but it will actually reduce them, when caught in the filter. This prolongs efficiency, and ultimately has a dramatically positive effect on the air you breathe. Finally there is an optional Ionizer, that can be turned on or off. The Ionizer will essentially remove particles from the air, which will be attracted to the electrode. Rabbit Air must be commended once again for providing an ON/OFF function for this particular filter, as such filter types usually produce small amounts of Ozone. If allowed to reach a certain level, traces of Ozone in the air can lead to certain lung diseases. However, this product is CARB compliant, so there is likely nothing to worry about, nonetheless we recommend users with respiratory conditioners refrain from using the Ionizer function.

 

Efficiency & Certifications

With four fan speeds, this unit encourages efficient operation. By selecting the fan speed suitable for your current needs, you won’t have to run your unit on full power constantly, which is incredibly useful for saving energy. A programmable timer allows the user to program when they would prefer their unit to function. We strongly encourage use of this feature, as once a schedule has been input into the device, the Rabbit Air BioGS 2.0 will function independently, regardless of  whether or not the user is home. This is an efficient way to ensure that you get the most out of your unit, without having to spend a lot of money. Furthermore, this unit comes Energy Star certified, which implies that it has been assessed, and the results have concluded that this unit adheres to a set of rules and regulations regarding energy consumption set out by the Environmental Protection Agency. The Rabbit Air BioGS 2.0 is also child friendly as an added benefit, with an auto-shut off feature that will kick in when the front panel of the device is removed.

 

Convenience

Considering convenience, this unit comes with an electronic wireless remote control, which is exceptionally useful, as it enables the user to issue commands to their unit from anywhere in the room. With a size of 22.2″ x 16.6″ x 9.8″ (HxWxD), and a weight of only 16.8lbs, this unit will fit neatly into any modern living space, without consuming too much space. With the Rabbit Air BioGS 2.0, gone are the days of struggling to find space for your air purifier. As one of the lightest units we have reviewed, this unit is easily transportable to where it’s needed most.

Also built-in to the Rabbit Air BioGS are particle and odour sensors, which will detect increases of pollutants in the air. If Auto Mode is enabled, the unit’s fan will adjust its performance accordingly, in order to combat the raised pollutant levels.

 

Design

The Rabbit Air BioGS 2.0 carries on the established Rabbit Air tradition of looking beautiful in any setting. With a smooth, minimalist design that allows optimised airflow, you won’t have to worry about concealing this unit, as it will sit comfortably into any contemporary living space, in fact, we would wager that you would soon find yourself looking for the most exposed areas of your room, to show off this visually stunning product. If you don’t want to take our word for it, this unit has won several design awards, including the Reddot Award 2014, and the Good Design Award 2014.

As we’ve previously stated, this unit is lightweight and compact in design, for aided portability, and space enhancement. However, possibly the most striking design feature of this unit is its intelligent touch display on the front-face of the device. When idle, the lights will dim on this display to avoid unnecessary light pollution. This interface will inform you of the current level of pollutants in the air, and the extent to which the unit is performing in order to remove such pollutants. This design is sleek and user-friendly, and a definite favourite of ours.

Finally, at lowest speed, this unit will function at slightly over 20 dBA. For reference, this is quieter than a whisper, and only barely louder than the ticking of a clock. This is yet another factor of the Rabbit Air BioGS 2.0 that showcases Rabbit Air’s dedication to providing us with top-quality products that are as non-invasive as possible.
