If you’ve followed me for a while, you know that I’m a big fan of Okaysou’s air purifiers. We already have four of them, one in our living room, one in the dining room, my bedroom, and one in our family room aka kitty playroom. I was delighted to get to try one of their newer models, the Apollo 718.

Putting the Apollo 718 to the test

I liked the simple, sleep design immediately. Like all of Okaysou’s models, this one is easy to assemble: all you have to do is take the filter out of the plastic wrap, re-insert it, and plug it in.

As with all Okaysou air purifiers, the first thing I noticed how quiet it is at low speed. When set to sleep mode, I found myself having to verify that it was actually on, it was so quiet. I  really love that I can have the benefits of an air purifier without the white noise that some other brands have.

The wheel light on the front of the Apollo 718 subtly changes color from blue to green and back in a circle. It’s unobtrusive, but I wasn’t crazy about that feature, although it takes nothing away from the performance of the air purifier.

I’ve mentioned before that the biggest difference I’ve noticed since I started using Okaysou’s products is that I no longer wake up with a stuffy nose, a common occurrence most mornings prior to using these air purifiers. The difference has been dramatic, and I have to believe that that means that the air quality in my home in general is improved.

I’ve also noticed less dust on my shelves and knickknacks. I don’t have to dust quite as frequently – definitely a bonus as far as I’m concerned, but  more importantly, it means that these air purifiers do what they’re supposed to do.

I kept the Apollo 718 in my living room, which is adjacent to the dining room, so I didn’t test it with litter box odors – not much of an issue with us anyway, since I pretty  much scoop as soon as Allegra uses the box. It did a great job getting rid of cooking odors. If you’ve read my other air purifier reviews, you know that I really dislike having my house smell like dinner for hours after I finish my meal.

Overall, the Apollo 718 performed just as well as all the other Okaysou models. Another winner!

3 Comments on Review: Okaysou Apollo 718 Air Purifier

  1. i am interested in the apollo 818, for larger rooms. i really need one since i have had problems with mold, and live in the country with lots of dust, dirt roads, etc

  2. Since moving to Florida we have “enjoyed” an upswing in allergies. Apparently everyone – both furs and people – are allergic to the mass quantities of pine trees and live oak trees cuddled around our home. We will be putting this air purifier on our To Buy list. Thanks so much!

  3. Being quiet is nice. My neighbor and I were talking about air purifiers and I told her about the ones you use and she said she might be getting one. The only experience she had in them was a noisy one she bought years ago and hated it because it made too much noise. I hope to be able to get one someday too.
