It contains not just a negative ion generator but also a UV-C lamp, serving two purposes. The UV-C light quickly destroys the DNA structure of most harmful bacteria and viruses, while 200 million negative ions remove allergens such as pollen, dust and other air pollutants, promoting restful sleep and higher serotonin. And with a battery life of 30 hours, you can wear it for days without having to recharge.
