I bought my Swedish blueair 203 air purifier when I was working in Beijing in March 2013. I would switch it on during the night at home (about 7 to 8 hours per day on average).

I will be abroad quite often from now on, and therefore cannot really use the purifier anymore, I would like to sell it. The air purifier is in perfect state, the filter does not need to be replaced for now. The…Continue
