LG battery powered face mask

Leading electronic company LG has invented a battery-powered filtered face mask intended to reduce irritating problems such as breathing difficulties and fogged-up glasses.

LG Electronics’ PuriCare Wearable, which comes in one size and weighs less features two fans and high-efficiency particle air filters that fresh air coming in and exhaled breath going out.

The South Korean company says the wearable air purifier is designed to replace the ‘inconsistent’ homemade masks, as well as the disposable medical masks that are in short supply.

As LG’s new mask uses motorized fans, it needs to be powered to work. LG says the PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier has an 820mAh battery that runs up to eight hours of use in its low-power mode, dropping to just two hours in high-power mode.

As more and more governments urge the public use of face masks to prevent the spread of the COVID-19, manufacturers have turned their devotion to making such innovative gear more comfortable without compromising safety.

Among problems mask wearers face are breathing difficulties and fogged-up glasses as the warm breath escapes from the top of the mask toward the eyes.

“Breathing is the biggest concern when it comes to wearing a face mask and disposable masks come with a huge environmental cost,” told Choi Yoon-hee, a senior official at LG Electronics’ air solution product team.

The PuriCare Wearable mask comes with a chargeable battery case and disinfects the mask with UV light.

The PuriCare Wearable will be available in the fourth quarter in select markets. LG is yet to set a price.

The mask has a battery life of about eight hours on low-power settings and two hours on its highest setting.

LG’s new mask is fitted with patented respiratory sensors that detect the cycle and volume of the wearer’s breath and adjust the fan speed accordingly.

The fans automatically speed up to assist air intake and slow down to reduce resistance when exhaling to make breathing effortless, LG said.
