LG’s Anti-Mosquito Air Conditioner: Death to All Bloodsuckers!

 |  |  |  |  |  November 24, 2012

If there’s one thing that I despise, it’s mosquitoes. The thing is that if they get into my bedroom or apartment, they will suck on my blood relentlessly, leaving everyone else alone. Maybe that’s one of the reasons I need the LG Anti-Mosquito Air Conditioner.

This LG Anti-Mosquito AC was designed for the African market, like in Nigeria were malaria is still a major threat to life. Since mosquitoes are carriers of this disease, it makes sense trying to get rid of as many as possible. The AC uses ultrasonic wave technology which is supposed to repel mosquitoes. According to LG’s tests, the AC has a success rate of 64% when it comes to deterring malaria-transmitting anopheles mosquitoes in 24 hours. Overall, it manages to repel 82% of mozzies.┬áThe unit has also been designed to deal with power fluctuations and brownouts prevalent in some African countries.

While it’s primarily targeted at Africa, I could see this being useful in any warm and humid climate where mosquitoes like to breed.
