South Korean electronics maker LG has now unveiled its new portable air purifier, Puricare Weable Air Purifier, in connection with the IFA trade fair 2020.
The idea with the portable air purifier is, according to LG, to replace homemade masks, which can be of varying quality, and disposable masks, which may be lacking.
Puricare Wearable Air Purifier uses two H13 HEPA filters, similar to those seen in the company’s stationary air purifiers, together with two fans and promises clean and fresh air indoors and outdoors. The filters in the mask are then replaced after a period of use.
A sensor in the mask reads the wearer’s breathing rhythm and adjusts the fan speed accordingly to make breathing as comfortable as possible. The mask is also designed for comfort as well as minimal leakage and uses an 820mAh battery that should last for eight hours in low mode and two hours in high mode.
Puricare Wearable Air Purifier also comes with a storage bag equipped with UV-LED light that kills harmful bacteria and viruses while charging the mask.
The brand new product line from LG will be available in selected markets during the fourth quarter of 2020. Price is currently unknown.
