Keep the air free from pollutants and air-borne nasties wherever you are with the LUFT Duo – the personal air purifier from LUFTQI
The first ever portable and filterless air purifier, the LUFT Duo, will make its worldwide debut at CES 2021 after smashing its crowd-funding goals and raising more than 20 times its original target on Indiegogo.
Developed by Taiwanese consumer electronics brand LUFTQI, the LUFT Duo is unlike traditional purifiers in that it’s portable, doesn’t require expensive filter replacements, and uses UVA LED and photocatalytic tech to zap dust, pollen, mold, and pathogens down to the molecule.
As the successor to the Luft QI 1.0 and the Luft Cube 2.0, this molecular air purifier is a must-have gadget for those with allergies or asthma, who live in built-up, congested areas, or those who just want some extra health security in their homes.
Building on their brand slogan of “Good air, anytime and anywhere”, the LUFT Duo stays true to the company’s small-but-powerful product design while bringing a sense of security to those living through the COVID-19 pandemic.
No extra parts, no byproducts
The clever design of LUFT Duo means it creates zero unnecessary waste with a replaceable, washable filter. To keep a LUFT Duo in working order, all users have to do is remove the filter and gently clean.
Compared to HEPA filters, which are only capable of trapping certain pollutants, LUFTQI’s patented photocatalytic technology allows the LUFT Duo to also decompose pollutants too small for HEPA filters – such as formaldehyde, which measures 0.00001mm – as well as molds, VOCs, and pathogens.
The LUFT Duo design is also eco-friendly, producing zero ozone as it purifies.
Why is portability important?
It’s portable and compact design means the LUFT DUO can be used in cars, coffee shops, offices, or airplanes, making it the perfect personal travel companion for those who suffer from asthma or allergies and may be more at risk during the pandemic.
Through research conducted by a host of third-party research labs, including an
Anti-Coronaviral Viral Activity Test at Chung Yuan Christian University in Taiwan, LUFTQI found that the Coronavirus cannot survive in the air for more than one hour when near a LUFT Duo, compared to its usual 21-hour airborne lifespan.
By bringing this technology into a portable form, users can ensure the air around them is clean and safe at all times – unlike traditional, stationary purifiers which might not be powerful enough to destroy all pollutants in every room of the home.
Silent, but deadly to pollutants
After listening to feedback from LUFT QI 1.0 and LUFT Cube 2.0 users, LUFTQI designed the LUFT Duo to be twice as powerful as its predecessors, but half as noisy, meaning it won’t disturb you – or the others around you – during use.
It has a Night Mode setting which enables a darker light of 0.2 lumens and quieter running sound of just 19 decibels so as not to disturb you while sleeping.
The LUFT Duo is also capable of purifying air in a 240-square foot space, meaning only one is needed for an entire home.
Best of all, there’s no complex or intricate setup required for the LUFT Duo – simply plug in and turn on with a single button press.
Award-winning and available now
LUFTQI is no stranger to recognition, with its previous offering, the LUFT Cube 2.0, winning the CES 2020 Innovation Award and a Taiwan Excellence Award in 2020. The LUFT Duo has already received a Taiwan Excellence 2021 award, as well as the SNQ Taiwan (Symbol of National Quality) certification.
The LUFT Duo is currently in mass production, and has already sold 20,000 units across Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan. The device is also available for purchase in the US and UK through its IndieGoGo page for $149, which includes the LUFT Duo, power cable, vent cap for more controlled air flow, and a cup holder so that it can be used in your car securely. A specially-designed travel bag is also available.
“When creating LUFT Duo, we wanted to create an air purifier that you could take anywhere with you. LUFTQI not only wants to make their customers’ worlds healthier, cleaner places, but we also have a commitment to eco-friendliness with reusable filters and as few byproducts as possible,” says Titus Chang, CEO at LUFTQI.
