Cherry Mobile just released the Cherry Ion, a testament that we’re indeed in the new normal.
The Cherry Ion is basically a power-bank-shaped personal air purifier that you wear on your neck. As per Cherry Mobile, it emits 50 million negatively-charged ions per cm3/second, which fights away airborne pollutants such as viruses — great for the COVID-19 pandemic that we’re facing. It also eliminates pollen, smoke, dust mites, and molds.
Creating a 3-foot zone of cleaner air, it protects you from possibly contracting a virus. It’s also great for people who are prone to allergy attacks driven by pollen, dust, and other airborne triggers.
Since it eliminates any inhalable contaminates, it can strengthen your immune system. Cherry Mobile claims that it can also prevent colds, lower stress levels, and improve blood circulation.
How the Cherry Ion works is pretty easy. Simply turn it on and wear it in your neck. The best part is, it comes in four colors: Black-Silver, White-Gold, White-Pink, and White-Rose Gold, so it would complement your style. It only weighs 45g, much lighter than a normal smartphone.
The Cherry Ion, on a full charge, runs for about 10 to 12 hours. A full green-light charge, using a microUSB cable, will take about 2 to 3 hours.
Before you ask, this device is different from a HEPA Air purifier and doesn’t use any filter that needs replacing.
The Cherry Ion has a price of Php3,500 and is now available in Cherry Mobile’s official store in Lazada and Shopee. It comes with a one year warranty.
