WEARABLE AIR PURIFIER
With the new Coronavirus strain popping up around the world, don’t you wish you can wear your air purifier like a mask? You’re in luck! LG’s latest PuriCare expansion is a wearable, face mask air purifier. Designed after extensive ergonomic facial analysis to fit snugly on most adult faces, LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier uses two filters similar to its residential air purifiers to prevent up to 99.95 per cent of harmful airborne matter from entering the respiratory system. It features a sensor that detects the wearer’s
breathing and automatically adjusts the three-speed DUAL Fans accordingly, speeding up when inhaling and slowing down to reduce resistance when exhaling. The built-in rechargeable battery delivers up to eight hours of operation at low speed and two hours on the highest setting.
LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier retails online for $229 from LG’s official Lazada and Shopee stores. Receive 30 pieces of complimentary inner cover worth $20 with purchase till 31 March 2021.
