Negative ions (air molecules with extra electrons) are electrically charged particles in the air that remove airborne contaminates and have been shown to have a rejuvenating effect upon our bodies. The best natural generator of negative ions is lightning, followed by ocean surf, waterfalls, mountains and forests. In clean, natural air, you’ll find the highest […]
Does AirTamer® produce dangerous levels of ozone?
No. We at AirTamer® are sensitive to the fact that cleaning the air should not produce unsatisfactory levels of ozone, so we test for ozone emission. AirTamer® produces no measurable amount of ozone. In fact, AirTamer was tested by Intertek (one of the world’s largest, independent test laboratories) and given an ozone emission rate of […]
Can I leave AirTamer® on continuously?
Yes. AirTamer® has no moving parts and uses a very small amount of electricity, so it is very safe and economical to leave on for long periods of time.
Will AirTamer® interfere with electronic communication equipment (e.g. computers, cell phones)?
No. AirTamer® meets FCC regulations for harmful interference with radio communications so you may use it by your computer, audio players, etc. without causing any unusual interference problems.
Does the AirTamer® make noise?
No. AirTamer® is silent.
How long will AirTamer® last with fully charged batteries?
AirTamer® has long run times due to its energy conserving technology. The A302 (with replaceable lithium coin cell batteries) has a 140-hour run time; the A310 and A320 (rechargeable battery) have a 150+ hour run time; and the A315 (rechargeable battery) has a 50+ hour run time.
Can pacemaker patients use AirTamer®?
Pacemaker patients should not use without first consulting with their physician as AirTamer® is an electrical product worn on the body.
Can children use AirTamer®?
We do not recommend that AirTamer® be worn by infants. There is no risk from the operation of AirTamer®, in fact it will keep the air cleaner for the infant, but the concern rests with the infant putting the AirTamer® unit or lanyard in their mouth and thus causing a choking hazard. It is completely […]
Can you use the AirTamer on airplanes?
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and FAA do not prohibit the use of personal air purifiers on board airplanes and AirTamer® is FCC certified not to interfere with airplane electronics. A very small number of airlines do restrict the use of personal air purifiers and it is always up to the discretion of airline crew […]
Does AirTamer® work with VOCs, like perfume, etc.?
Yes. VOCs are very small particles and AirTamer® will help alleviate allergic issues related to VOCs by keeping the VOC particles away from your breathing space. In one Japan laboratory test, AirTamer® reduced VOC levels by 52% in just 8 minutes.
How much space can AirTamer® clean?
AirTamer® is a personal air purifier and not a room air purifier. AirTamer® is designed to clean the air around your head – about a 3-foot sphere is a good benchmark. The further your face is away from the AirTamer®, the fewer ions will reach your breathing space, so we recommend hanging it from your neck and using […]
Can AirTamer® remove cigarette smoke from the air?
Yes. We actually test the AirTamer® with smoke in test labs since smoke particles are so small and represent a great test particle. AirTamer® is very effective at reducing smoke. AirTamer® has been independent laboratory proven to reduce 99% of smoke from the air in 5 minutes.
Can AirTamer® remove viruses from the air?
Yes. In 2018, the prestigious Kitasato Research Center for Environmental Science in Japan tested AirTamer® with an Escherichia Coli virus. AirTamer® successfully reduced 99% of the virus from the test chamber within 20 minutes.
How can I tell if my AirTamer® is working?
AirTamer® emits healthy negative ions from the ion emitter brush (i.e. the black brush located on top of the unit). If you put the ion emitter brush close to your lips your will be able to feel the ions tickle your lips. This is because the AirTamer® emits over 2 million negative ions per cubic […]
How does the AirTamer® work?
AirTamer® emits negative ions from the little black brush that you see at the top of the unit. Over 2 million negative ions are emitted from that brush every second. These negative ions attach themselves to air particles like viruses, allergens, pollution, etc. in the air and negatively charge those particles. Those negatively charged particles […]
