The product aids users to breathe pure, filtered air in “almost any environment”, with sensors detecting the wearer’s breathing to automatically adjust three-speed DUAL fans for inhalation and exhalation.
With a built in rechargeable battery (820mAh), the device pledges up to eight hours of operation at low speeds, and two hours on the highest setting.
LG affirms the product was designed with extensive ergonomic facial analysis around adult faces, and minimised air leakage around the nose and chin.

The case also claims to remove moisture from internal components caused by the wearer’s breath.
Offering additional smarts, the product is capable of sending a notification to a user’s smartphone via the LG ThinQ app when filters need replacing.
