Following its unveiling at IFA 2020, LG Electronics (LG) has today launched its personal air solution in the UAE market – the LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier. LG’s PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier has been in development since 2017 – undergoing three years of extensive R&D and product testing.
Within its research, LG identified common challenges for mask-wearers, including regulating air flow without becoming too warm or claustrophobic and having glasses periodically fog up. Additionally, as people become more conscious of the environment, the need for a more sustainable solution was clear.
The PuriCare Wearable has been ergonomically designed, based on extensive facial shape analysis. The device fits snugly around the user’s face, minimizing air leakage around the nose and chin area. The face guard also features a silicone pad which seeks to promote comfortable fit for hours on end and reduce the fogging up of glasses, while the inner cover prevents internal contamination.
To deliver a new level of personal protection, the LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier harnesses two H13 HEPA filters, which work to prevent up to 99.95% of harmful airborne matter, such as viruses, bacteria and common allergens from entering the wearer’s respiratory system. LG’s patented Respiratory Sensor detects the cycle and volume of the user’s breathing, automatically adjusting the PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier’s DUAL Fans accordingly via three-speed settings. The dynamic fans are able to speed up when the wearer is inhaling, and slow down to reduce resistance upon exhaling.
The LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier comes with a built-in, rechargeable 820 battery which can deliver up to eight hours of operation at low speed and two hours on the highest setting. To recharge, users simply need to connect the device to a power source using the provided USB C cable. For added convenience, key components such as the filters, inner cover, face guard, ear straps and strap extenders are also easy to remove and replace – extending usability.
Coming soon, LG will also release a unique case for the PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier, which deploys the company’s UVnano sanitization technology to eliminate 99.99 percent of germs in just 30 minutes, using UV-C LED lights. The case can also remove moisture from internal components caused by the wearer’s breath, charge the device from empty to full in just two hours and send notifications to the user’s smartphone via the LG ThinQ app when filters need replacing.
“The introduction of the PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier to the UAE market represents our continued commitment to not only championing innovation, but also bringing advanced technology to market at rapid pace. While this device could not be any timelier demand for portable protection and access to clean air is not new. For years, we have seen growing interest and concern for maintaining good air quality – which is why we have continued to expand our PuriCare lineup. We are seeing interest in sectors ranging from government and B2B organizations, right through to everyday consumers. We are proud to empower people across the UAE to breathe better air, while remaining comfortable,” said Hongju Jeon, President, LG Electronics Gulf.
The LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier is now available in the UAE at select Carrefour, Sharaf DG, and ACE stores for the retail price of AED 699. Two H13 HEPA Filters are provided in the box, with additional filters available for the retail price of AED 59.
LG Launches PURICARE 360 HIT
LG Electronics (LG) has announced the launch of its latest breakthrough in air purification technology, the LG PuriCare 360 Hit. According to the company, indoor air pollution is a growing concern in the Middle East, given high temperatures make people spend longer inside. “The LG PuriCare 360 Hit sets a new standard in air purification with its advanced Through Air Purification system, featuring the Total Allergy Care Filter, Deodorization Filter, and Ionizer. This multi-filtration system effectively eliminates 99.999% of 0.01㎛ particles, bacteria, viruses, ultra-fine dust, allergens, and even harmful gases like NO₂ and SO₂. LG’s Ionizer system releases more than 9 million ions into the air to remove bacteria. With LG’s new Antibacterial/Anti-viral Filter, Total Dust Collection & Allergy Care Filter, and Harmful Gas Care Filter, you can breathe easy, knowing that your air is deeply cleansed. These filters are certified by KAF (Korea Asthma & Allergy Association) and CA (Korea Air Cleaning Association),” the company said.
With the windows closed for the majority of the time caused by high temperatures and humidity, increased usage of air conditioning will have aggravating factors of indoor air pollution. The innovative 360° Purification technology of LG PuriCare 360 Hit ensures that the air is purified from all directions. Unlike traditional air purifiers, the new purifier’s cylindrical body and performance-oriented flow path structure allow it to quickly and efficiently inhale and discharge air in a full 360-degree range. This unparalleled design not only ensures faster air purification, but also eliminates blind spots, leaving no corner untouched by its cleansing power.
LG ThinQ integration brings convenience to LG PuriCare 360 Hit Air Purifier. With Wi-Fi connectivity, users can easily manage their indoor air quality from anywhere and at any time. Whether you are on the go or returning home, you can conveniently monitor the current air quality through the mobile ThinQ app and activate the purifier remotely, ensuring a clean and fresh environment upon your arrival. Additionally, users can access air quality reports with daily, weekly, or monthly air quality history.
Review: HomePure Zayn Air Purifier
The HomePure Zayn Air Purifier claims to remove 99.94% of viral particles from indoor air. The air purifier combines a prefilter and patented HPP+ Electrostatic Film to eliminate particles as small as 0.1 microns. The device also comes with an enhanced antiviral HPP+ filter cartridge. This antiviral mesh filter houses a tri-layer system that removes 99.94% of viruses.
Inside the box, you get the Zayn Air Purifier, the quick start guide, the warranty info, a plastic stand, and the power adapter with multiple plug options. The Zayn comes packed with Ultraviolet light and an Ultra-Plasma Ion Filter to kill airborne viruses and bacteria. There is also an Activated Carbon Filter, which eliminates unpleasant odours, gasses, and vapours.
The device also comes with built-in air quality sensors, an indicator to alert users when the filter needs changing, child-safe lock features, and a night mode that dims lights for worry-free sleep. In addition, the device is designed for easy maintenance – you can simply wipe it clean whenever you change the filter.
Setting up the device is quite simple. The top and bottom parts of the HomePure Zayn get magnetically attached. Once it is detached, you will be able to replace the HPP+ filter cartridge. The body of the device is made of plastic and you will find all the buttons to operate it on the top of the device.
These touch-sensitive buttons include ion, UV, fan speed level, child lock, night mode, and timer. There is also an HPP+ Filter Change Indicator on the top. In the center of the button panel is the power button.
The air purifier has been certified by the European Centre for Allergy Research Foundation (ECARF) and it covers an indoor area of up to 36 sqm. The company claims that the Zayn can reduce viral particles including the novel coronavirus. It should be noted that when used properly, air purifiers and HVAC filters can help reduce airborne contaminants including viruses in a building or small space. However, by itself, air cleaning or filtration is not enough to protect people from COVID-19.
Once the device is switched on, the LED indicator near the vents will light up in orange or green to indicate the quality of air in the surrounding. We were able to go from orange to green in about 1 hour of operating the device. While reviewing the device, we closed the windows of the room where Zayn was tested in.
For a price of $770, the HomePure Zayn is a good device, though there is no support for a smartphone app, like many air purifiers out there in the market. However, if you are in the market for an air purifier that comes with an ion filter, HPP+ filter, and a UV light built-in, you should definitely check out the HomePure Zayn.

Acerpure Debuts Eco-Conscious Air Purifier Made with PCR Materials
Acerpure Inc. today announced the Acerpure Pro Vero Air Purifier, the first of its kind to incorporate post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials in the chassis, echoing its parent company Acer’s eco-conscious Vero line. Acerpure Inc. focuses on developing lifestyle and consumer products that utilize smart features to enhance the quality of life while also benefiting users’ environmental surroundings.

The newest air purifier is equipped with a PM2.5 air quality sensor to detect suspended particles indoors and is capable of automatically switching to the appropriate operating mode in real-time. The device also notifies users of the current air quality through three different light indicators (green/yellow/red) and the “Green Mode” could efficiently self-adjust its purification power based on the surrounding conditions. Its DC motor allows for high performance with low energy consumption when in use and even on “Quiet Mode”, which operates with reduced noise and no lighting, allowing for improved sleeping conditions and air quality together.
The Acerpure Pro Vero comes with an advanced 3-in-1+ HEPA Filter, capable of isolating bacteria and 99.9% of suspended PM2.5 particles in the air. It also effectively filters out harmful gases and allergens through its 4-layer protection system. Tested by third-party laboratories, the activated carbon cotton-infused filter is further strengthened with an anti-formaldehyde coating to remove 99% of formaldehyde and other harmful substances in the surrounding, keeping homes and indoor spaces always fresh and clean.
