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.
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 is also eco-friendly, producing zero ozone as it purifies.
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.
After listening to feedback from LUFT QI 1.0 and LUFT Cube 2.0 users, LUFTQI designed the LUFT Dup 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 Dup – simply plug in and turn on with a single button press.
The LUFT Duo is currently in production, and has already sold 20,000 units across Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan. The device is 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.
