As you already know, in October we went to Seoul with the details of the met office, shops and one of the largest Korean companies LG.
We in detail will tell you more about the smart appliances of the future, LG is already selling or developing only. But first I want to tell you about one small but useful thing that we learned on the trip.
In the megacities of Asia, Europe and the USA actively develops the theme of air purifiers. The number of industries and transport affects what we breathe, and subsequently on our health. So LG, for example, have air conditioning, combined with an air purifier.
But what about other places — the car, airplane or office? For such cases, LG has developed a compact air purifier — LG PuriCare Mini.
Appearance and dimensions
In the manufacture of home appliances of LG pay much attention to design. Cleaner also not spared, for it has managed to receive the award reddot award 2019. At first glance it seems that we have before us a portable heater, but it is not.
The device is available in two colors — black and white. Easy to carry with attached strap. Weight only 530 grams, height 200 mm, width 69 mm, thickness 64 mm.
You’ll be able to carry it anywhere with you or use a special holder and put it in the machine where the device will fit seamlessly into any interior.
Power and idea
In PuriCare Mini has two Twin Tornado fan motor, Dual Inverter, and a special filter to clean the air. One plate for two thousand hours of use, after which it can be exchanged for a new one (back cover can be easily removed).
The air passes four degrees of purification. Recommended area — 1.8 sq m. According to the company, the filter can clear the air of vermelle dust with a diameter of 1 micron, including allergens. These data confirmed the British company independent examination by Intertek, which has more than 1,000 offices and laboratories around the world.
There are four cleaning mode: automatic, low, high and turbo. Depending on this change and the noise: 23 dB low 43 dB to 48 dB high and turbo. For the understanding of — 30 dB is comparable to a human whisper.
For clarity, in the upper part of the device has a four-step air quality indicator. It changes from red, orange, yellow and green, depending on air purity. It is noteworthy that in the Korean samples, instead of the green used blue.
The cleaner is primarily designed not for permanent work and for small spaces. For example, take it with you in cafes, at work, in the car or even a walk with the baby. In all situations, the gadget will help to breathe clean air.
Control and autonomy
Regulate PuriCare Mini in two ways. The first is a classic. Above the air quality indicator there are two buttons, one is responsible for enabling, the other for the nomination regime.
To avoid confusion, above the buttons are diodes indicating the charge level, the selected speed and Bluetooth. Here we come to the second method of control.
In the App Store and Google Play there is an application PureCari Mini. It is possible not only to regulate power, but also to see the air quality, the battery life and the filter life (in hours). The Bluetooth connectivity.
Installed inside the accumulator with the capacity of 3600 mAh, charging which used Type-C, from 0 to 100% takes four hours. Low cleaning gadget can work up to eight hours on high up to two hours. But nothing prevents to connect it to PowerBank during use.
Cost and conclusions
In Russia LG PuriCare Mini appeared relatively recently. The official recommended price is kept at a mainstream smartphone — 12 990 rubles.
And then we have to think about the health. The topic of air cleaning in the apartments for Russia is not particularly relevant: as one of the leaders of LG — «do you have many forests and the air is not so dirty.» But in the cities the problem has already been observed.
Another problem is Allergy, which is most of the children. These gadgets allow you to protect yourself and it’s one thing when we’re talking about the apartment (you will not have it sit in a greenhouse), and another about the public places where you can come with this thing and not worry about what you breathe.
Is to use a gadget at least six months and then I think you will feel the difference and effect.
