Panasonic Corp will release a hanger that can deodorize clothes by decomposing the odors of sweat, cigarette smoke, grilled meat, etc as well as reduce the amount of cedar pollen allergens.
The hanger, “Deodorizing Hanger MS-DH100,” has the “Nanoe X” OH radical generation function. It will be released Sept 1, 2017, with a monthly production volume of 1,000 units and an expected retail price of about ¥20,000 (approx US$179, excluding tax).
The MS-DH100 is thicker than normal hangers. It emits “Nanoe X” from eight ports. This structure makes it easy to send Nanoe X throughout clothes. With an accompanying cover for clothes, it becomes possible to care not only the inside of the clothes but also the outside and more effectively deodorize the clothes in the narrow space than in a closet.
The power consumption of the hanger is about 4.5W. It can continuously operate for about five hours in the “normal mode” and about seven hours in the “long mode,” both of which cost less than ¥1 per use. It is powered by a household power outlet (AC100V) or a mobile battery.
The “QE-AL201” (capacity: 5,000mAh, rated output: DC5V, 1.8A) and “QE-AL301 (capacity: 7,500mAh, rated output: DC5V, 1.8A) batteries enable operation in the normal and long modes, respectively, about one time. The main unit of the hanger is not equipped with a built-in rechargeable battery
