Once in a while a new gadget comes along which I can't resist trying out. This new ZHIYUN PuriBar is one of those things you didn't even know existed but with so many applications could well become one of the most useful gadgets in your household! (AD)
So what is it and what does it do?
The new ZHIYUN PuriBar is an eco-friendly sanitation device that kills up to 99% of bacteria and viruses in mere minutes– faster than competitor products apparently and in a more portable, take-everywhere pocket-sized design.
The PuriBar cleans air via two layers of purification - ozone and negative ions, which increase the flow of oxygen and clear the air of lung irritants and airborne allergens such as pollen, mould spores, bacteria and viruses. PuriBar also eliminates chemicals, smoke and even odour, leaving no secondary pollutants - only oxygen remains.
With its extra oxygen atom, the resulting reactive ozone from the PuriBar can decompose and catch polluting molecules to change their molecular composition, while its negative ions thoroughly absorb tiny airborne particles to clean the air, removing pollutants.
How big is it?
Small (143.5mm x 25mm x 25.4mm) and lightweight (100g), the ZHIYUN PuriBar is portable to take with you wherever you go, providing users with ultra-easy, quick and efficient disinfection of 5L - 30L worth of space in just 4 - 8 minutes. This makes the ZHIYUN PuriBar perfect for disinfecting baby products, makeup and jewellery boxes, dog houses, cat carriers, workout gear, gym bags, handbags and rucksacks and suitcases - before and after travel.
With just one twist the built-in ozone generator automatically releases a combination of both ozone and negative ions to permeate every corner of enclosed space in whatever it is being used to purify. The PuriBar even notifies users of disinfection success by beeping to indicate start and finish of sanitisation cycles.
In handbag mode, the PuriBar purifies up to 5L in just 4 minutes. In backpack mode, it covers up to 20L in 6 minutes, suitcase mode gives up to 30L in 8 minutes and, finally, in loop mode, the PuriBar releases ozone for 4 minutes on a recurring cycle every 2 hours until the battery runs out.
Fully charged after 2.5 hours, the PuriBar’s 1600mAh battery capacity means it can be used – in loop mode – for up to 9 hours. The 6.75W rated power also benefits from low power consumption, but PuriBar also supports an LED battery display and real-time charging.
From safeguarding the health of the whole family to disinfection in just a few minutes, users can negate allergy risks and lingering pet and cooking odours in and around the home, leaving a clean and fresh environment. PuriBar is small enough to be easily put into any bags or even pockets, so it is ideal for commuters and those that travel regularly.
The PuriBar product manager said: "Even though you may wash household items on a daily basis, unfortunately, germs such as Escherichia coli, aspergillus flavus, and dust mites are hard to eliminate and pose an invisible threat to our health, which calls for a simple but efficient way of sanitization in our daily life. And this is exactly why we have launched the PuriBar. It helps you remove airborne pollutants at any time you want – super fast. An enclosed unoccupied space is all it needs. The ZHIYUN PuriBar is a safe and useful sanitization solution for the post-COVID era.”
Obviously this is a difficult gadget to review as you can't actually SEE results. But I popped it into a rucksack I hadn't used for a while in backpack mode (easily changed with a click of the button) and it made me feel more confident about putting my lunch into it. It smelled fresh too. (PRODUCT GIFTED)
It feels well made, is switched between handbag, backpack, suitcase and loop mode easily and I like the way you turn it on by twisting the top half. It also has a handy loop to hold it with.
