Purelogic Labs India is now launching India’s most accurate and affordable pocket monitor for PM2.5 levels. Prana Air Pocket Monitor is a one of its kind monitor, allowing the user to measure air pollution values on the go. With a 400 mAh battery which will last for up to 4 hours without a charge, it lets the user check the air anywhere and anytime.

Prana Air Pocket Monitor has a built-in, high-quality sensor to check PM2.5 values, meaning particles with a diameter less than 2.5 micrometres. These particles are dangerous to inhale, and the Pocket Monitor ensures that the user knows right away when the levels are too high.

The monitor is simply turned on by long-pressing the on-button, allowing the monitor to boot and begin measuring the air. The PM2.5 values will show to the left while a category for the safety level will be shown on the right, ranging from Good to Hazardous. With the high sensitivity of the sensor, it can detect levels up to 2000 µg/m3. To calculate the particle count, the device uses a sophisticated laser sensor with an additional algorithm to give PM2.5 into ug/m3

The monitor comes with a micro-USB cable for charging, where a full charge takes no more than one hour. The portable device can be used in any indoor or outdoor environment, such as in the home, in the office, or in the car. The sensor measures in real-time which means it can move from place to place and constantly check the air quality levels.

The Pocket Monitor is launching in India at the affordable price of Rs 2,990, allowing both people who are concerned for their health or have an interest in air quality to check the air in real-time anytime. The device is now available online at www.pranaair.com with worldwide shipping.
