During its presentation at the virtual edition of CES that started today LG has reminded us how important it is to make sure that the air we breathe is clean. The South Korean brand’s portfolio has long incorporated household air purifiers compatible with the most popular voice assistants, but the solution that it has just presented has a differential characteristic: It is portable.
However, it is not a purifier designed so that we can easily transport it from one room of our home to another; It has been conceived to accompany us everywhere. In fact, it is the ideal size so that we can easily put it in a backpack or a bag and use it inside a car or at our workplace as a a personal air purifier.
Eliminates up to 99% of hazardous substances, according to LG
The measurements of this portable air purifier are very measured: 69 x 64 x 200 mm. In addition, it weighs a very reasonable 530 ge and incorporates a rechargeable battery that, according to LG, offers us an uninterrupted autonomy of up to 8 hours. Battery charging is carried out via a USB connection. And when in operation it emits a noise level of 30 dB, so in theory it should be possible to work and study with it right next to it without becoming a distraction.
LG ensures that this small device is capable of removing 99% of the particles from the air with a minimum size of 0.3 microns, so it should be able to effectively filter out dust and many of the allergens that can trigger an allergic response in some people. Two motors of the type are responsible for absorbing the air and returning it to the space in which we are filtered. dual inverter and many other fans, which, again according to LG, guarantee a high filtering rate.

In addition, this purifier incorporates a small light indicator on the top that indicates the quality it has the air we are breathing in real time depending on the color it adopts. The red tone reflects that the air is loaded with impurities, and the green tone that we are inhaling very clean air, but between both colors there are other tones that reflect the degree of suspended particles.
To control this device and find out, for example, the hours of use of the filter, we only have to install an app on our smartphone that communicates with the purifier through a Bluetooth link. This app provides us with information in real time about air quality that we are breathing and the size of the suspended particles, automatically enabling the ideal filtering intensity based on the characteristics of the space in which we find ourselves.
