TL;DR: The LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier now out in stores in the Philippines.
LG Philippines finally launched the LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier in the country. The self-purifying mask, which was introduced and went viral a year ago, is one of the most interesting tech-wear right now.
The company also introduced UVnano, their latest innovation in personal protection. The technology uses ultraviolet light to eliminate up to 99.9-percent of bacteria. The PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier’s charging case uses UVnano to clean the mask while it’s charging. Moreover, LG’s new air conditioners use ultraviolet light to sterilize the fan to prevent germs from adhering to its surface. This process makes the air blown through the unit safer and fresher.
The LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier provides thorough air protection with HEPA filters that filter out harmful particles for clean, fresh air. It has a Safety Certificate from the Korean Institute of Public Safety (KIPS), while virus removal, bacteria filtration, and pollen allergen removal performance was verified through an internal test conducted under the observation of TUV Rheinland Korea.
The wearable air purifier has also been certified by the Korean Asthma Allergy Foundation (KAF) for the effective removal of allergens, and the National Radio Research Agency (EMF) for electromagnetic compatibility.
The Respiratory Sensor detects the cycle and volume of the wearer’s breathing, whereas DUAL Inverter Fans adjust the dual three-speed fans accordingly. Its seamless, organic design fits and seals to your face to minimize air leakage around the nose and chin, comfortable for everyday wear while minimizing air leakage. The material is made of medical-grade silicone, which also makes it possible to wear the unit comfortably for long hours.
A separate charging case is also available. It uses UVnano technology to remove up to 99.99-percent of bacteria in 30 minutes, including Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Staphylococcus epidermidis and Staphylococcus aureus.
It also supports the use of the LG ThinQ app. With a smartphone, users can check usage history and the status of UVnano mode, Drying mode, and filter life.
Apart from the wearable air purifier, LG Philippines also launched its new air conditioners that utilize the new Aircare Complete system, which is a multi-step filtration process with UVnano to reduce allergens and harmful bacteria to ensure cleanliness of the air.
The first step of the process is the Safe Plus Pre-Filter, which traps big dust particles and removes 99.9-percent bacteria from the start. Next is the Ultra-Fine Dust (HAF) filter that collects Particulate Matter (PM) 1.0 ultra-fine dust that is combined with (-) ion from Ion diffuser. After that is the Allergy Filter that reduces allergens with a filter for healthier air followed by the UVnano technology to keep your fan 99.99% bacteria-free for a cleaner breeze. The end result is clean, pure air in your home all day every day.
