- Powers the AirTamer A302 for 7 days on continous use(24 hours per day)
- Each battery is 100% certified to be fresh.
Two (2) high quality 3 volt lithium coin cell batteries (CR2025 size) keeps the AirTamer A302 running at peak performance.
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 will then be naturally attracted to positively charged surfaces around you (e.g. a table, chair, window, clothes, etc.), rather than continuing their way towards your breathing passage where they can make you sick. As a result, AirTamer® reduces the probability that you will inhale these bad particles and become ill.
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 centimeter every second - this is the highest cleaning power of any personal air purifier in the world!
Additionally, there is an LED on the back of the unit that flashes when AirTamer® is emitting ions.
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.
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.
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 the adjustable lanyard to adjust the length so the AirTamer® is positioned in the upper part of your chest.
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.
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 on those airlines whether they follow the guidelines. Several airlines around the world actually offer AirTamer® for sale in their inflight catalogs.
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 safe to use AirTamer® around the infant (e.g. if you wear it when your baby is near you) so long as the choking risk is recognized and responsibly managed. Negative ions emitted from AirTamer® will not harm an infant and only help keep the air cleaner. The AirTamer® A302 uses lithium coin cell batteries so it is particularly important for this choking hazard to be responsibly managed because ingestion of these battery types can be very dangerous.
Do not wear AirTamer if you wear a pacemaker. The conductive lanyard uses your body as a ground in order to increase cleaning effectiveness.
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.
No. AirTamer® is silent.
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.
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.
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 zero. AirTamer is also CARB certified.
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 concentrations of negative ions. In polluted cities and confined spaces, like offices, you'll find the highest concentrations of unhealthier positive ions. Columbia University has even proven that negative ions can significantly help manage depression and Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).
