The Coway AP-1512 is the brainchild of a South Korean company established in 1989. Exterior-wise, one can’t help but admire how beautifully glossy it is. But is it truly “compact in size, mighty in power” as the company claims? In this Coway Ap-1512HH Mighty air purifier review, we’re giving you a consumer report. What do previous buyers have to say about their unit? Read on to find out.
Key Features of the Coway AP-1512HH
Here’s what you can expect from the Coway AP-1512 air purifier.
4 Stage Filtration
The cleaning process involves a BAF-certified (British Allergy Foundation) 4-stage filtration process – pre filter, carbon filter, true HEPA filter, and ionizer. Through these filters, pollutants and allergens are surely eliminated.
How do the filters work?
The washable pre-filter targets large particles such as dust, fur, and hair. The carbon filter neutralizes odors and harmful gases, and captures smaller particles. The true HEPA filter is designed to trap allergens and other particles (pet dander, pollen) whose size can be as small as 0.3 microns. That last filter is called the Vital Ion feature, which freshens the air with negative ions.
Real-Time Air Quality Monitoring
This feature eliminates the guesswork by sensing and displaying the air quality of your room. Be guided by the following colors: blue – clean, purple – medium polluted, and red – highly polluted.
Auto and Eco Modes
When the air quality is detected to be bad, the Coway AP-1512’s auto mode adjusts the airflow speed to cope with the pollutants. If there are no pollutants detected for 30 minutes, this air purifier utilizes the Eco Mode. Meaning, it will automatically stop to save energy.

This mechanism is advantageous because you don’t have to worry about finding where to “properly place” this device, unlike with other brands that push air from one side to the other.

Does it filter out smoke? The general consensus is that it does pick up most of the bad smell, including cigarette smoke and cooking smell.
