Frequently Asked Questions, Answered.

Negative ions, which are air molecules carrying surplus electrons, are electrically charged components in the atmosphere. They serve to eliminate airborne impurities and have been demonstrated to impart a revitalising impact on our well-being. The most abundant natural sources of negative ions include lightning, as well as ocean waves, cascading waterfalls, lofty mountains, and lush forests. In pure, natural air, you'll encounter the most elevated levels of negative ions. Conversely, in polluted urban environments and enclosed spaces, such as workplaces, you'll come across elevated concentrations of less beneficial positive ions. Research from Columbia University has even confirmed the substantial benefits of negative ions in managing conditions like depression and Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).

The discrete carbon tip at the unit's top releases a continuous stream of over 10 million negative ions per second. These ions bind to airborne elements such as viruses, allergens, and pollutants, like PM 2.5 imparting a negative charge to them. Consequently, these negatively charged particles are drawn towards positively charged surfaces in your surrounding, like tables, chairs, windows, or clothing. This prevents them from progressing toward your respiratory system and potentially causing illness, effectively lowering the risk of you inhaling harmful particles.

In tests, air ionisers have been shown to successfully reduced 99% of the virus from the test chamber within 5-20 minutes.

Yes, the Air Shield Mini can effectively remove PM 2.5 particles from the air.

Yes, cigarette smoke reduces by 99% in around 5 minutes.

Indeed, VOCs (Volatile organic compounds) are minute particles like isoprene (12-580 ppb), acetone (1.2-1,880 ppb), ethanol (13-1,000 ppb), methanol (160-2,000 ppb) and other alcohols, Air Shield can effectively mitigate allergy concerns associated with VOCs by preventing these particles from entering your breathing zone. In a laboratory tests ionisers demonstrated a remarkable 52% reduction in VOC levels in just 8 minutes.

Yes, the Air Shield Mini's 10 million ions can attach to pollen particles and cause them to settle out of the air, making it easier to breathe and reducing the presence of pollen.

The Air Shield Mini is a portable air purifier, different from room purifiers. Its purpose is to freshen the air within a close proximity, roughly spanning a 3-foot area or a cubic metre.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and FAA do not have restrictions against using personal air purifiers during flights. While a few select airlines may have policies limiting the use of personal air purifiers, it ultimately depends on the discretion of the airline crew to enforce these guidelines.

The negative ions emitted by the Air Shield Mini will not pose any harm to an infant and will, in fact, contribute to improved air quality. Notably, the Air Shield Mini utilises lithium batteries, making it crucial to responsibly address this choking hazard, as ingestion of such battery types can be highly dangerous.

We advise against infants wearing the Air Shield Mini. While the operation of the Air Shield Mini poses no risks and actually contributes to cleaner air for the infant, the concern arises from the possibility of the infant placing the Air Shield Mini unit or lanyard in their mouth, which could lead to a choking hazard. It is entirely safe to use the Air Shield Mini near the infant, such as wearing it when your baby is in close proximity, as long as the potential choking risk is acknowledged and managed responsibly.

No. The Air Shield Mini is totally silent.

If you have a pacemaker, please refrain from wearing Air Shield Mini. The conductive lanyard utilises your body as a grounding mechanism to enhance its cleansing capabilities.
