The pandemic has taken a huge toll on all of us in so many ways that we have to adapt to live in this new normal – and now masks are crucial to our livelihoods as soon as we step out of our home. Masks are disposable, and it does create a lot of waste but fabric masks on the other hand aren’t as effective as a proper mask. So, LG came up with a solution, making a personal air purifier that you can wear, and the second generation is here’ in Malaysia – it’s the LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier, now available for pre-order.
LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier
LG is genuinely known to take things a step further in terms of innovation – one of the good examples will be the LG Wing (By the way, we have one – make sure to like our Facebook so that you don’t miss the content on that) – the LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier is no different as it’s a pretty innovative product from the get go. As I mentioned earlier, this is the second generation whereas the first generation wasn’t released in Malaysia.
That said, the upgraded LG PuriCare is now equipped with a fully automatic fan airflow control system that increases the breathing comfort. You might wonder as to why the mask looks big – that’s because it also incorporates 2x HEPA H13 filters which are found in premium air purifiers we use at home. This wearable Air Purifier has the potential to remove dust, virus, bacteria, and allergen up to 99.95% all possible to the HEPA H13 filters.
Speaking about making breathing easier – the Air Purifier comes equipped with a respiratory sensor that senses users breathing and the dual fans with an ultra-small and lightweight motor automatically adjusts to the breathing cycle to allow users to breathe filtered air effortlessly in any kind of environment. Oh, another value-added benefit is that you don’t have to worry about fogging up your glasses when exhaling. Definitely a deal breaker for people who wear specs.
Another issue these LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier tackles is the size and the ability to talk well. It comes in a new Creamy White finish, there is a Black one too but unfortunately there’s no information if it would be available in Malaysia. But regardless of the color, these devices will be offered in large sizes of face guard and medium sizing available on separate purchase for consumers who want better fit. It weighs about 94 grams, and according to LG, it’s 25% lighter than the previous model.
About the ability to talk well: it comes with a VoiceON Feature – which is a built-in microphone and speaker that recognizes when you are speaking and projects your voice out, to make sure everyone can here you loud and clear. It does charge via a case, so the 1000mAh battery can last about 8 hours. There will be an app available in Q4 2021, where users can monitor their breathing via their smartphone.
