LG PuriCare series now has a new addition to their lineup; an Air Purifier Face Mask! Specifically it’s called the LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier.
For those unaware, LG is known for their PuriCare series that helps keeps your air and water safe and clean. It looks like LG is taking their series to the next level, especially in this current pandemic, by introducing a face mask tech that filters the air you breathe in.
Here’s a writeup on what the mask has to offer thanks to Gadget 360:
The LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier uses two H13 HEPA filters to purify the air you breathe in. It also uses the built-in Dual Fans with three speed levels that speed up automatically to assist air intake and slow down to reduce resistance while exhaling. LG has also provided a Respiratory Sensor that it claimed can detect the cycle and volume of the wearer’s breath, and adjust the available fans.
In order to limit air leakage around the nose and chin, the LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier uses its ergonomic design that is touted to be based on facial shape research conducted internally by the company. The mask also has an 820mAh battery that is rated to deliver up to eight hours of operation in low mode and two hours on high mode.
The face mask comes bundled with a case that is equipped with ultraviolet (UV) LED lights and can charge the mask. It can also send a notification to users through the LG ThinQ mobile app when the filters require a replacement. Moreover, the face mask has replaceable ear straps and is recyclable as well.
LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier is set to be showcased at IFA 2020 in September. No word yet on when it will be made available, and whether or not this will hit our side of the world. Details about its pricing would be revealed later.
