LG puricare mini In-Hand Review


LG puricare mini air purifier design is so handy it feels like you are holding the mini Bluetooth speaker in your hands, handy and slim design which does not occupy a large space much less than your coffee mug.

I like the design so much the three LED lights are interesting as they show the quality of air and depend on contaminants present in the air.

It has two fans that filter the air with the help of an inbuilt air quality sensor. on the backside, you will get a USB Type-C charging port.

The purifier is made of plastic but gives you a premium metal finish look. the weight of this mini air purifier is just 1.2LBS.

The device is designed for personal use such as offices, Desks, and cars so in case of performance this is the best for portable uses. you can use it wherever you want because of has an internal battery not need to be connected via a power outlet. you can easily pack this and take it traveling and use it in a hotel room or an Airbnb.

The Fan speed button for adjusting air cleaning power and speed of the fan. the default setting for this fan is being set by the sensor according to the air quality around the purifier. but you can change the default setting to high and low as shown in the image.

the fan just hardly sounds like a whisper but it’s quiet it can help you to sleep if everything around is making zero noise.

The three LED lights also show the battery levels. blinking red shows the battery level at the lowest and needs to be charged, after that blue shows the middle level of charge, and for the fully charged battery, it shows green.
