LG PuriCare Mini world’s first filter-type portable air purifier starts rolling out globally

LG has started rolling out PuriCare Mini globally, after it was introduced in  Hong Kong a few months back. It says that this is the world’s first filter-type portable air purifier. The LG PuriCare Mini is not only highly efficient, it’s also fast, cleaning 50 percent of the air inside a car in 10 minutes offering Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) of 13m2/hr.

It features LG’s 4-Step Air Filtration System to detect and remove 99 percent particulates as small as 0.3 μm.

  • The first step involves the PM1.0 Sensor which quickly and accurately detects the quality of the air
  • Dual Inverter Motor forcibly draws in the air at 5,000rpm in the second step.
  • In step three, the high-efficiency Total Allergen Removal filter removes particulates in the air
  • In the final step, the powerful Twin Tornado Dual Fan disperses the clean air far and wide.
