I have a temporary medical condition that makes me especially vulnerable to germs and viruses. Many warned me against flying in airplanes because of the poor air quality, so I purchased this because there is no way to fully avoid airborne viruses. I have to get in elevators. I need to shop. I have been in restaurants when people started coughing or sneezing. I can't stay at home. So, I wash my hands frequently, try not to touch my eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands and I wear this air purifier. When people start coughing, I look down at it and I am reassured by the little blinking blue light. I have not gotten sick since wearing it and I have been wearing it for a few months now.
The rope it hangs by was sometimes irritating at first. It feels like wool. Also, for a short time, when I wore the clamp against my bare skin, I felt little pulsations which I did not feel comfortable about, so I turned the ionizer around so that the blue light was towards my skin. Actually, it seemed the flow of air from the product had a better chance of reaching my face when the clamp was turned away from my body. I do love this product. My husband has the newer, more expensive version with the charger and he loves that one. I'm tempted to buy it because it is rechargeable. Changing the batteries are as easy as 1-2-3 and they are inexpensive at Walmart and Amazon.com. Unless I accidentally leave my ionizer on when I am not using it, my batteries last for weeks. Of course, unlike my husband, I don't typically wear this thing unless I am going out to see the public. He leaves his on the nightstand throughout the night. I'm not as happy to do that with batteries that need replacing. So, I am torn between the two products. But, I'd certainly give this one an A+++ rating.
