RabbitAir Minus A2 SPA-780A – cutting-edge tech & classy aesthetics
As we’ve hinted, the major talking point about the RabbitAir Minus A2 SPA-780A is its elegant, sophisticated appearance. The other point that should be mentioned at the outset, and a useful way into the buyers guide and review post is the price tag. Retailing for the hefty sum of $599.95, many prospective customers might baulk. However, if you are a frequent user of air purifiers, this may well be the appliance that you need.
The Rabbit Air Minus A2 SPA-780A is perfect for cleaning the air in rooms up to 300 square feet. The unit enjoys moderate Clean Air Delivery Rating (CADR) scores, so we would recommend this product as ideal for a small to medium-size room in a typical family home or a small office.
Here are the specific CADR scores across a number of specific criteria:
- Smoke: 193
- Dust: 200
- Pollen: 208
This product features an impressive six-filter system: a pre-filter and medium filter, which both capture large particulates; a HEPA filter, which specialises in catching the smallest particles; a fourth, customisable Rabbit Air filter (for Germ Defence, Pet Allergy, Toxin Absorber, and Odour Remover); a carbon filter to combat potent odours; and finally, an optional ionizer, which charges air passing through the device, making it easier to recapture air on the next pass through the purifier. If you are concerned about traces of ozone left by the ionizer, this sixth filter can be disabled.
Efficiency & Certifications
This purifier has an air-quality sensor that indicates level of air pollution in the room, enabling the user to decide for themselves when they need to use the purifier. The device has an auto mode, allowing for the automatic purification of the air when sensed by the appliance.
The RabbitAir Minus A2 SPA-780A also has a filter monitor that notifies the user when filters require replacement, while its sleep mode ensures that the machine will operate at such a level as to ensure your sleep will be undisturbed.
The device uses approximately 93-96 watts on highest settings, which is slightly above average for purifier energy consumption. However, the device is Energy Star-verified, which places it among machines with lower energy consumption levels.
The RabbitAir Minus A2 SPA-780A is also certified by The California Air Research Board for its production of little to no emissions while in operation. However, the Minus A2 SPA-780A is not verified by AHAM.
Weighing 19.4lbs, the RabbitAir Minus A2 SPA-780A is relatively heavy by purifier standards. However, it is not particularly large, and can be mounted on a wall.
The auto mode of this device is invaluable, enabling the device to automatically filter the air based on readings from its own sensors, rather than the user having to program the unit to turn on when they believe it to be necessary. However it is jus as easy, via the manual timer, to override this auto mode and follow a user-defined schedule.
The RabbitAir Minus A2 SPA-780A is probably the best designed purifier that we have reviewed, at least from an aesthetics standpoint. Its ultra-modernist design will look good anywhere, adding class to any setting, rather than detracting from it.
The MinusA2 is one of those rare appliances that you will show to guests, rather than attempt to conceal it, or make it blend in. Before you know it, you’ll be moving your other belongings to compliment the Rabbit Air Minus A2 SPA-780A, and not the other way around.
The appliance’s front face is customisable, enabling special covers to be placed over the product. Anything from Van Gogh’s Starry Night to an illustration of Snoopy the Dog can be used as a covering, to add a touch of cultural personality to any living or working space.
The fact that the unit can be mounted it on a wall means that it can either blend seamlessly with the background, or, in conjunction with the customisable front face covers, stand out as a piece of art.
Help & Support
RabbitAir provides all that a customer could require in terms of support. The company’s website contains detailed FAQs and downloadable user manual. It is easy to contact representatives of the company via phone, email or an online chat function on the website. If this wasn’t enough, the Rabbit Air Minus A2 SPA-780A also avails of a whopping five-year warranty.
The RabbitAir MinusA2 SPA-780A is a particular favourite of our reviews team. It’s the perfect blend of style and function. While the price may be too steep for some, one might argue that it is entirely justified.
An elegant design, interwoven with an inspired utilisation of enhanced technology results in a product that is both visually stunning, and extremely effective in a smaller environment.
If you are looking for a higher end air purifier with a touch of class, look no further.
