LG updates its air-purifying mask to make it easier to talk
*Updated: 13 August 2021 14:15pm with local pricing*
According to LG, the new PuriCare Wearable still uses dual fans to control air flow now delivers enhanced performance with a smaller, lighter, more efficient motor. LG says that the new mask will weigh just 94g and can be worn for up to eight hours with the new 1,000mAh battery. Recharging time is only two hours with the included Easy Charge USB cable.
The biggest change for users will be the ability to talk to others without having to shout or feel like Darth Vader with a new built-in microphone, speaker, and LG’s VoiceON technology. LG says that VoiceON automatically recognises when users are talking and amplifies their voice through the built-in speaker, so listeners don’t have to strain or lean in to hear every word.
The newest LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier was worn by 120 Thai athletes, coaches and staff as they departed Bangkok for the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
