LG announces its latest technology innovation, an air-purifying face mask, and it plans to show it off at the IFA trade show in Berlin next week. The PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier looks like any other regular mask but LG says it will have two high-quality HEPA filters that can remove at least 99.97% of particulates in the air down to .3 microns in size.
Face masks have continually been a feature of people’s daily wearables as the COVID-19 pandemic means it is vital to preventing infection by the virus. With the coronavirus seemingly able to survive in the air for some time, an air-purifying mask seems like a need.

“The PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier is an exciting addition to our growing lineup of products designed to deliver meaningful health and hygiene benefits. At a time when consumers are seeking ways to make life safer and more convenient, it’s important that we’re able to offer solutions that add measurable value,” Dan Song, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company said in a statement.
The LG air-purifying mask is to ship with 820mAh battery-powered dual fans, along with the filters. The battery life will last about two hours if the fan is set to high and about eight hours if set to low, according to LG.
“With its Dual Fans … [the] wearable air purifier allows users to take in clean, filtered air,” LG said in a release. The PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier will also ship with a case that charges the battery and disinfects the mask with UV light.
