Clean Light Takes on a Whole New Meaning Beth Snyder June 26, 2012 Pretty much everyone needs a desk lamp, at least those of us who spend any amount of time at a desk. Many of us also have allergies. Mine are so bad there is really not a time of year I don’t suffer from symptoms. I’ve looked at several different air purifiers over the last year or so, but this one I really like. And according to the description, it should work fabulously. If you can afford it. The lamp features 42 LED bulbs, which obviously will give you enough light to see anything you want…and quite possibly a few things you wish you hadn’t. It has a built-in fan and vents in its base, which eliminate up to 99.99% of viruses, allergens, and bacteria. How it works is the fan and vents issue hydrogen and oxygen ions that envelop the bacteria and viruses, keeping them out of your lungs. The ions then penetrate the pathogens and destroy their DNA, making them incapable of surviving and reproducing. It doesn’t just clear the air of things that can cause illness, though. It also cleans up smoke, pollen, and the VOCs associated with some chemicals, which means you should be able to breathe easy. Here’s the best part: It doesn’t use a filter. Its fan operates on two speeds, neither one of which should ruffle the papers on your desk (my least favourite thing about having a fan in my office). It can treat a room up to 175 square feet. The unit itself measures 17″ H x 2 1/3″ W x 2″ D and weighs just 3 1/2 pounds. And now for the bad part. This thing is going to run you $300.00 US. Figures, doesn’t it?
