SEOUL, Nov. 7, 2019 — With clean air a commodity in high demand
today, LG Electronics (LG) announces the world’s first filter-type portable air
purifier designed for use on-the-go. With an innovate PM1.0 Sensor, the compact
and cord-free LG PuriCareTM Mini helps deliver safe, clean air in
the car, a baby’s nursery or even one’s office.
LG’s 4-Step Air Filtration System, LG PuriCare Mini can detect and remove 99 percent
particulates as small as 0.3 μm1. The first step involves the PM1.0
Sensor which quickly and accurately detects the quality of the air before the Dual
Inverter Motor forcibly draws in the air at 5,000rpm in the second step. In
step three, the high-efficiency Total Allergen Removal filter removes particulates
in the air and in the final step, the powerful Twin Tornado Dual Fan disperses
the clean air far and wide. The LG PuriCare Mini is not only highly efficient, it’s
also fast, cleaning 50 percent of the air inside a car in 10 minutes.2
PuriCare Mini can go anywhere the user goes thanks to its small size and light
weight, which make it ideal for use on the go where plug-in models can’t go. Similar
in size and weight as a 500 milliliter bottle of water, the wireless portable
air purifier freshens the air for up to 8hours at low speed or 2 hours
at the highest setting on battery power alone. And its quiet operation – only 30dB
in low setting – allows the LG PuriCare Mini to be used in an enclosed stroller
without waking a peacefully sleeping baby.
Mini utlizes a durable filter which lasts up to 2,000 hours or six months if
used 12 hours a day. The free LG ThinQ app for both Android and iOS devices
allows users to monitor the condition of the filter, check the battery status
and control their LG PuriCare Mini via Bluetooth with a smartphone or tablet.
useful technology in a form factor that goes where our customers go – this is
what LG PuriCare Mini is all about,” said Song Dae-hyun, president of LG
Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “There is nothing more
important than the health of one’s family and LG is committed to using its engineering
know-how to deliver innovative solutions.”
PuriCare Mini will become available in key markets of Asia, North America throughout
the next several weeks into 2019.
