JVC Jumps On Air Purifying Your Car
JVC is looking to jump in the air purifying market with the unveiling of its HEPA filter cupholder-mounted air purification system – the KS-GA100.
Set to sell for US$89.95 (A$134.40), with replacement HEPA filters at US$20 each, the JVC KS-GA100 presents a competitive option to the LG PuriCare Mini Air Purifier, which is being sold in Hong Kong for 170,710 WON or roughly A$211.
JVC Australia isn’t saying much about it other than it may arrive later this year, however with the tragic bushfire season Australia has experienced, the demand for air purifiers can only grow from here.
The device is designed to fit in a typical car-cup holder at a height of just 12cm and a diameter of 7cm.
Capable of purifying an area of 10 cubic metres in just five minutes the JVC KS-GA100 can remove smoke, allergens, odours and dust from the air using 3-stage filtration.
With no physical buttons on the device, users will instead change settings with motion-activated controls, or by shaking the device to turn off and on.
JVC Singapore also sells a larger version which features a display on the top of the device for ‘at-a-glance indication of the operation status and in-car air conditions’.
