LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier resolves the dilemma of homemade masks being of inconsistent quality and disposal masks being in short supply. The PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier employs two H13 HEPA portable filters, similar to the bigger filters used in the company’s air purifier products.
The announcement ahead of IFA 2020 doesn’t explicitly mention the COVID-19 pandemic, but it heavily implies that the mask was just developed in response to it.
The high-performance replaceable filters enable PuriCare Wearable to supply fresh, clean air indoor and out. With its Dual Fans and patented Respiratory Sensor, LG’s wearable air purifier allows users to take in clean, filtered air while the Respiratory Sensor detects the cycle and volume of the wearer’s breath and adjusts the dual three-speed fans accordingly. The fans automatically speed up to assist air intake and slow down to reduce resistance when exhaling to make breathing effortless.
The efficient and lightweight 820mAh battery offers up to eight hours of operation, more than enough for a full day’s work. One of a kind, the smart cover can even charge the mask and when the filters need to be replaced can send a notification to the LG ThinQ mobile app for iOS and Adroid devices. Moreover, the case helps maintain hygiene between uses thanks a UV-LED lights system that kills harmful germs.
