Here’s what you don’t know about the expensive mask….
The LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier AP300AWFA is a cutting-edge wearable air purifier for daily use. It features dual H13 Grade HEPA filters powered by advanced technology offering up to 99.7% of air filtration.
Made of premium medical-grade materials, the LG PuriCare is an advanced air filtering system for personal use. It’s the first of its kind to feature dual H13-Level HEPA Filters – the same type of filtering technology used in high-end air purifiers from LG’s PuriCare product family.
With dual fans and a 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.
Powered by a rechargeable 820mAh battery, its dual fan filtering system offers up to 8 hours of use in slow speed and 4 hours of fresh air in high speed.
It’s the first air mask that features an auto-sanitizing UV Sterilizing & Charging Case that helps maintain hygiene between uses. The case (sold separately) is equipped with UV-C lights that kills 99.9% of bacteria and harmful germs that may remain on the mask. It also connects to your Wi-Fi network and sends notifications to the LG ThinQ mobile app (Android/iOS) when the filters need to be replaced.
The mask comes with 2 HEPA filters, 10 replaceable inner covers for the internal face guard, a carrying pouch, neck band, and USB cable for charging.
