realme recently launched the realme TechLife Air Purifier, its the newest addition to its line of smart AIoT appliances. Equipped with a 3-stage filtration system, a modern design, and five wind mode settings, is this a good buy for you? Let’s dive in.
Price and Availability
Replacement HEPA filters will be available later this year in online and offline stores.
The realme TechLife Air Purifier has a modern tower design with a sturdy plastic build. It’s larger than some of the air purifiers I’ve seen, but I do like the clean aesthetic.
At the top, you have the control panel with the following buttons: power, auto mode, fan speed, night mode, indicator light and button for filter replacement, and the timer. The buttons respond to really soft touches.
The air purifier is equipped with a real-time air quality monitor with a light indicator that shows green for good air quality, orange for moderate air quality, and red for bad air quality.
By the way, one of the prongs of the plug is slightly bigger than the other, so take note of this when plugging it in. It’s not common, but it’s normal. Oh, and don’t forget to remove the plastic cover of the filter before turning it on.
The front panel can be detached by pressing at the sides of the top of it. Here, you will have access to the HEPA filter and the pre-filter.
The HEPA H12 filter has 60-plus layers with a pleated design. It is capable of filtering at least 99.5% of airborne particles. A HEPA filter (an acronym for “high-efficiency particulate air”) can capture airborne particles up to the size of 0.3 microns and PM2.5 pollution, including dust, pollen, and other allergens.
It boasts a high-level purification capacity of 330m³/h CADR, which means that it is able to quickly and efficiently provide excellent purification results in a relatively short amount of time. realme says that for a standard indoor area of 1059ft³ (30m³) for example, the air purifier needs only 14.4 minutes to complete a single purification process.
There are five wind mode settings. In Auto, the air purifier adjusts the fan speed depending on the air quality. Then you have the three fan levels: low, normal, and high speed. And lastly, you have Night Mode which lowers fan speed and turns off most indicator lights.

As soon as you turn it on, the air purifier does a quick “scan” and tells you the air quality in a room. I generally just use the Auto Mode, but you can adjust the fan levels to your liking.
According to the United States’ Center for Disease Control (CDC), having an air purifier with a HEPA filter in your home or office can greatly reduce the risk of COVID-19 exposure, especially when combined with a mask. It offers added protection for your peace of mind.
If you’re in the market for one, the realme TechLife Air Purifier is a good option. For Php 5,990, the device has a modern design, a powerful filtration system, and a host of useful features such as Auto Mode and air quality indicator.
