Packaging & Design
The new LG PuriCare comes in a sleek packaging. Inside the box, are two PuriCare HEPA filters, a packet consisting of 15 inner covers and a face guard packed in separate packaging.
The PuriCare is pretty lightweight at around 94 grams and entire unit is made of durable hard plastic. In terms of design, the LG PuriCare looks futuristic. There is a power button located on the bottom of the device, which also houses the status LED and the USB Type-C charging port.
Using the mask requires a little bit of assembly. First, you need to open the filter case on the left and right side to place in the PuriCare filters. Then you insert the inner cover and finally the face guard by just sliding it into place and the built-in magnets holds the face guard in place. The magnets are strong enough to hold the face guard in place while we’re wearing it, yet it’s easy enough to pull off when it’s time to clean it.
The LG PuriCare needs to be charged before you can start using it. It takes about two to three hours to fully charge up the device’s 1,000mAh battery. LG says that you can use the PuriCare for eight hours on a single charge, and based on real world usage, we got about six hours of usage before plugging in to recharge.
The design of the face mask is cleaner and more streamlined, and makes it comfortable to wear. The smart, ergonomic design was adopted for the shape of any face. It fits and seals the face, comfortable for everyday wear while minimizing air leakage. It also uses medical-grade silicone that has been checked for safety. However, you’ll start to feel the strain of wearing the mask after an extended period of time
There is also a UNnano dock that can be purchased separate that can charge the device and keep Your wearable air purifier hygienic, LG says the dock can eliminate up to 99.99% of bacteria in 30 minutes using UVnano technology.
Once the assembly is complete, the PuriCare can be turned on using the power button at the bottom. The fan inside the mask starts to kick in only when you inhale, as there is a respiratory sensor. It 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.
LG’s Dual Fans make breathing in a wearable air purifier more comfortable by blowing air at the speed of your breathing cycle. You won’t feel resistance while taking a breath.
The LG PuriCare is exactly the same as that used by home air purifiers and can filter up to 99.97 percent of dust, powder, mold, bacteria, and airborne particles measuring 0.3 microns.
The new LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier is Bluetooth enabled, which allows you to connect it to the LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier app for Android. Once connected, the app allows you to adjust VoiceON volume, airflow, usage history, filter management, battery information, breathing tracking by activity and location, power the unit ON/OFF and perform firmware updates.
You can use the new LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier without the app, but app-specific functions like Fan Speed and Volume Control are only available through the app.
Another feature of the LG PuriCare is the VoiceON function, which is, essentially, a voice amplifier. When you turn on VoiceON, the device picks up your voice and amplifies it over the speaker slits located at the front of the mask, making it easier to hear your voice.
Featuring LG’s unique air solution technology, the new LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier, delivers enhanced all-around performance with a smaller, lighter, more efficient motor.
