Portable air purifiers always catch my attention since manufacturers manage to pack a variety of features into a small and fairly priced appliance. I decided to review the Jinpus GL-2103 Air Purifier for its small size, 360° purification ability, quiet operation, and a low price.
At first glance, this air purifier has everything you need to enjoy clean air in your bedroom, cubicle, kitchen, or any other area. Personally, I enjoy a powerful purification action. Even though small purifiers don’t have a lot of power, they work perfectly when combined with their bigger brothers.
Let’s take a closer look at what this air purifier has to offer.
Even though this purifier is rather small, it has a solid filtration system. A standard three-stage filtration option, which includes a HEPA filter, can make this model a perfect choice for any room in your house.
Fine preliminary filter – this filter is designed to catch large contaminants before they go into the air purifier. Besides holding on to big particles and making the air cleaner, this filter increases the life expectancy of other filters in the purifier. You can clean the pre-filter manually once every three months.
True HEPA filter – the most important part of any air purification system is the HEPA filter. It takes care of 99.97% particles 0.3 microns in diameter, which means it can fight allergens, mold spores, pet dander, bacteria, and some viruses.v
The manufacturer recommends replacing the HEPA filter once every six months. However, if you plan to use this appliance daily and round-the-clock, shoot for once every 4 months. The replacement filter costs about $12.
Activated Carbon filter – this filter takes care of smoke and all types of odors. If you place the air purifier on your kitchen table, it can do wonders keeping the air smelling clean and fresh. The activated carbon filter comes in a package with the HEPA filter so you replace both simultaneously.
The filter is very easy to replace. The air purifier will cost you about $24 to $36 to maintain annually.
Design & Features
I’m a big fan of this portable air purifier’s design. It’s small 4.92 * 7.64 inches and weighs a little over one pound. The purifier is easy to move around. You can take it with you to the office or a on a business trip.
While it doesn’t pack a huge variety of smart options, the air purifier has a sleep mode, during which the LED light dims. The sleep mode turns off automatically after 8 hours.
Additionally, I love how this purifier works through a USB cable so you can hook it up to the laptop.
Overall, JINPUS did an excellent job designing an appealing air purifier, which looks perfect anywhere you decide to install it.
Since this is a small portable air purifier, I didn’t have any excessive expectations about the coverage area. The manufacturer claims it to clean rooms up to 161 square feet. As usual, I look at the CADR numbers to extrapolate the actual coverage area.
- Smoke – 51
- Dust -51
- Pollen – 51
This means that by using a simple formula (CADR x 1.5), we can see that the purifier can service rooms up to 77 square feet.
This didn’t come as a surprise, considering the small size of this model. By placing it next to your bed or computer, you can ensure the high quality of the air in your vicinity. However, don’t expect it to clean larger rooms.
Since I’m a light sleeper, noise levels are important to me. This air purifier is extremely quiet – under 30dB. That’s a tad louder than the sound of rustling leaves.
This makes this model an excellent choice for bedrooms. You can also place it on your desk and not worry about any sound interfering with your work.
The air purifier comes with a 1-year warranty, which is less than I usually prefer. However, considering the low price of the unit, it seems sufficient.Pros:
- Small size & excellent design
- USB cable
- 3-stage filtration
- Easy operation
- Low price
- Simple maintenance
- Only services small spaces
- Only 1-year warranty
- No smart options

Jinpus GL-2103 Air Purifier
- Final Rating: - 91%91%
We really like this little unit from Jinpus. The GL-2103 air purifier is one of the cheapest we’ve ever reviewed.
Naturally, the cheap price means it’s only very small and not capable of cleaning large rooms, but for personal space air purifying, it’s perfect.
The machine looks very well built for the pricetag, so we have no problems fully recommending this little air cleaner.
