  • Are there any smells which the devices emit?
    They do emit a mild odor which tapers off some. The natural smell of the ion production has a unique odor, yet not considered strong to most individuals. The smell is like that of a thunderstorm shortly after lightning has struck nearby. You do not need to place the unit's right next to you, as well they distribute the ion's optimally at an elevated placement. The unit's can be placed at the opposite end of the room.
  • How often does the unit need to run?
    The unit can run as long as needed or desired. In a small space such as an automobile, the unit can always be on. If you choose, run until odors are gone. In an open area, such as a restaurant, fitness center or office space, the unit can run all day. Since CarryiOn never requires a filter change, it’s capable of running continuously for up to three years. CarryiOn can be taken with you wherever you go; even airplanes, hotel rooms, classrooms and more.
  • Does the Bi-Polar Ion Technology help with odors such as tobacco smoke or animal urine?
    Yes! Our MCI Bi-Polar ionization technology will remove tobacco smoke, odors such as cat urine and gassing off of voc's in construction builds as well as most other smells. Of course extremely high volumes of continuous smoke or strong odors can over power the units effectiveness.
  • Do you ship internationally?
    Yes we do, please email us at
  • How is the Weston Scientific CarryiOn different from other ionizers?
    Our CarryiOn is a first-of-its-kind USB-powered compact air purifier and surface sanitizer. The CarryiOn harnesses industrial-grade air-cleaning technology typically found only in commercial buildings across the globe and makes it available for personal use. The same technology utilized in our larger units. It’s lightweight, quiet and cupholder-size for on-the-go portability. Unlike other ionizing air purifiers that rely on single-charge ions (not bi-polar), a lower concentration of ions or even HEPA filters, the multi-cluster ionization (MCI™) used by all of our Weston Scientific products generate an abundance of BOTH positive (hydrogen) and negative (oxygen) ions simultaneously. These bi-polar ion clusters react with the surfaces of viruses including SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, and bacteria to neutralize contaminants on contact. This creates a sphere of protection wherever you go.
  • What are VOC's and why should I be concerned about them?
    VOC stands for volatile organic compounds. Concentrations of many VOC's are consistently higher indoors (up to ten times higher) verses the outdoors. They are emitted by a wide array of products like paint, varnishes, recently dry-cleaned items, common household cleaning products, etc. Effects from exposure to VOCs vary widely. Some VOCs are known carcinogens while others cause no known health effects. You can read what the EPA says about VOCs here:
  • Is the CarryiOn easy to use?
    Absolutely. Just plug it into a USB port or outlet using the USB cord or AC adaptor included with every CarryiOn. It’s easy to take it with you everywhere you go.
  • How do the Bi-Polar Ion's reduce allergens?
    Pollen, dust and pet dander continually float through the air where they can be easily inhaled. Instead of passively waiting for these allergens to get trapped by a filter, bi-polar ion clusters actively seek out and act on these airborne particulates. The ion's and allergens then congeal into microscopic beads that drop to the ground.
  • How is your technology different in comparison to other air purifiers.
    This is not a single ionic output as in other manufacturers products. We’ve developed advanced BIPOLAR ION CLUSTER / MULTI CLUSTER ION technologies. Our technology produces Positive Hydrogen Ion’s and Negative Oxygen Ion’s in a cluster formation. We mimic nature’s production of both positive along with negative ion’s via photoelectric and photocatalytic means. This generates a "mechanical kill" eliminating Virus’, Pathogen’s, Bacteria, Pollen, Allergens, Mold, Mildew and VOC’s (volatile organic compounds). Nature utilizes these processes in various ways such as the sunlight’s electro-magnetic / light spectrum, natural & artificial corona discharge including thunder along with lightning, plant-based sources of energy and the shearing forces of water (the Lenard effect).
  • Is ion technology safe?
    Yes. Ion's are simply positive or negatively charged atoms. Nature produces ion's daily (such as ocean waves, thunderstorms, waterfalls, etc.). The ion levels our technologies and that of nature produce are not harmful to humans, plants or animals. If you’ve experienced the crisp, clean air after a thunderstorm, you’ve already experienced the ionization process. It’s what makes this air purifier and surface sanitizer ideal for helping to protect everyone, including infants, the elderly and the immunocompromised.
  • Does the Bi-Polar technology neutralize the COVID-19 virus?
    Yes, the clustered bi-polar ions are proven to neutralize SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. To learn more, read the official research results: Virucidal Activity Test Report.
  • Are the unit's fragile if dropped?
    Yes! Our unit's can be adversely affected if dropped. Excessive moisture will also damage electrical components.
