    As I understand it that is how most pollen removey things work, how good it will be, who knows. The line "4. Experience forest shower while driving" cracked me up, what does it mean?

    Its only £4 so you cant really loose out by giving it a go. If you do, let us know how you find it / if it actually does anything.

    The picture I thoguth somone had stuck it in their exhaust, it would make a good cat replacement come mot time if you can keep it hidden up there (assuming a few hydrocarbons might reduce breakdown voltage of air, but i guess its more likely to go up). Doing this would be very stupid with this product, but I have always wondered why cats need to have expensive metals when you could just waste a tiny bit of power making sparks - maybe explosive if you get a lot of unburnt fuel coming out?



    anyway they work by negaticly charging the air and anything in it, which makes it move to positivly charged surfaces. any crap i the air (like pollen/dust/pollutants) gets deposited on the surface.

    That said I wouldnt trust a £4 product to generate the required voltages safely, so it either doesnt work (i.e fake) or your car is going to catch fire if you leave it on without watching it)

    Cats do more than just burning off excess fuel in the exhaust is why.

    I think the point was the sparks were for the ioniser, which would aid the cat.
