Cherry Ion Personal Wearable Air Purifier FAQs:
1. What is Cherry Ion?
Cherry Ion is a portable air purifier that delivers fresh air anytime, anywhere. It is considered a personal rechargeable air purifier that continuously emits 50 million healthy Anions (negatively-charged ions) per cm3 / second and takes away airborne pollutants like viruses, pollen, smoke, molds and dust mites.
2. How does Cherry Ion work?
Cherry Ion has 2 brushes on the top right and left side that emits 50 million electrically negative charged molecules or atoms called Anions- these anions transfer the charge to particles—such as one carrying a flu virus—in the user’s breathing zone and since like-charged particles repel each other, they are pushed out of the breathing zone. The Cherry Ion serves as your shield from all viruses, bacteria, allergens and other elements that may cause sickness.
3. What are negative ions?
Negative ions are clean and healthy molecules floating in the air or atmosphere that have been charged with electricity. It also shown to have beneficial effects on one’s physical and mental health.

The 50 million negative ions emitted in your immediate breathing space by the Cherry Ion works as an effective invisible shield that guards against and significantly reduces germs, allergens, airborne viruses, bacteria, dusts, mold, cigarette smoke, etc. in the air for a healthier breathing space. The more negative ions being emitted, the less chances of these bad elements getting into your breathing space as each negative ion serves as a cleaner or sterilizer of the air to avoid air pollutants that are harmful to health.
7. Are negative ions / anions safe?

No. The Cherry Ion does not have a filter that needs replacing. The method of producing negatively-charged ions and emitting them in the air as a way to clean and sterilize it is a very different method of air purification compared to HEPA air purifiers that uses a fan to draw in air and a filter to collect the airborne pollutants before pushing the air back into a room.

No. Aside from it being not portable, the HEPA air purifier/filter uses a built-in fan that draws air inside the unit and through a filter it before pushing fresh air back into the room. On the other hand, the Cherry Ion emits 50 million negative ions (anions) within the 3ft radius around your head (when worn as a necklace) which serves as an invisible shield from bad airborne elements such as bacteria, viruses, germs, allergens, dust, mold, cigarette smoke, etc. The negative ions that the device emits naturally bonds with pollutants to weigh them down and not enter your breathing space. Only fresh and clean air remains for healthy and safe breathing.
