Updated: May 08, 2020

Dyson Pure Cool DP04

The Dyson Pure Cool DP04 is essentially a more compact version of the Dyson Pure Cool TP04. It is a cooling fan and air purifier in one and is designed to intelligently detect indoor air quality and self-adjust purification settings as needed.

It is relatively small but not too small, ideal for family use.

The machine has a bladeless design and is safe for everyone including kids and pets.

The DP04 has a display that shows current air quality and cleaning mode.

Main Features:

  • Ait tracking in real-time
  • Fan speed adjustment
  • Connection to the app
  • Can be controlled by voice (with Amazon Alexa)
  • Shows air quality report
  • Oscillates at 350 degrees
  • Works as a purifier and also as a fan


The Dyson DP04 comes with two filters, but they are sold in a pack for convenience and have the same replacement frequency.

The two filters used by the Dyson Pure Cool DP04 includes:

1. HEPA filter

Designed to capture particles as small as 0.3 microns.

2. Carbon filter

Designed to neutralize odors like smoke, food, etc.

Main modes and control

There are three modes:

Auto mode 

In auto mode, the DP04 will automatically assess the indoor air quality and adjust fan speed and other settings as necessary in order to improve the air quality.

Custom mode

When in custom mode, you can manually adjust the features. You can change the fan speed, airflow direction, or angle of oscillation (ranging from 0-350°). All depending on your needs.

Night mode

In night mode, the DP04 runs at its quietest decibel level and also dims all displays, so it won’t disturb your sleep. The DP04 also has a sleep timer that ranges from 1-8 hours to keep the modified settings for as long as you’d like.

Aside from these three modes, the Dyson has 10 fan speeds.

The Dyson comes with a magnetic remote control which can be stored directly on the machine.

The Dyson Pure Cool DP04 can be controlled with:

  • remote control;
  • voice control (via Amazon Alexa);
  • smartphone-based App Control (via Dyson Link app).

Remote Control

The physical remote control is a nice feature included on the Dyson DP04 air purifier.

Using the remote control, you can:
- power on / off
- check filter status
- adjust fan speed
- reverse air flow
- oscillate
- set the machine into auto mode
-  turn on night mode

Smart Control

With the app, you can see additional details about the indoor air quality of your home as well as outdoor air quality.

Setting up the DP04 on the app is quick and easy to do. Once it’s all set up, your smartphone can essentially function as if it were the remote control.

Molekule Mini+ Air Purifier

The Molekule Air Mini+ is a smaller version of the original, Molekule Air.  Air Mini uses the same proprietary technology, Photo Electrochemical Oxidation (PECO), as the original Molekule Air to destroy pollutants.

What you know about PECO

PECO is an innovative technology that uses a catalyst and light to break down pollutants at a molecular level, including VOCs, bacteria, mold, viruses, and allergens.

While HEPA filters trap the particles, PECO destroys them

Designed for

Molekule Air Mini is designed for rooms up to 250 square feet and is ideal for smaller spaces like studio apartments, kids’ bedrooms, and home offices.

Ideal for personal use.


The original Molekule Air has two filters: a Pre-Filter and a PECO Filter. And the Air Mini has one integrated filter that combines the benefits of both into one filter.

What is Auto Protect Mode?

Air Mini+’s exclusive mode delivers particle protection by auto-adjusting fan speed based on the sensor.


The Mini+ has particle sensor and also particle level indicator which both work in tandem to help the auto protect mode to adjust fan speed depending on the inside air quality.
