I haven't had a lot of time to use my power cap yet, but so far have been very pleased! It's much more comfortable than expected, simple to use, the shield doesn't fog up and it's not hot. I haven't run down the charge that the battery already had, so I can't speak to how the charger works.
My clean-air system is so lightweight that I forget that I’m wearing it. No longer do I have to worry about breathing in sawdust. I don’t know how I ever got along without it.
After years of working with wood professionally, I've developed an asthmatic reaction to the dust. I've tried just about everything, but most masks limit the time I can spend due to the heat build-up. I tried what seems to be the Powercap's main competitor but found too many problems for it to be used regularly. I decided to give the Powercap a try and I absolutely love it. It's extremely light and comfortable. Instead of fitting your head with plastic bands, it fits more like a baseball cap with an elastic band in the back.
I no longer feel overheated while playing outdoor tennis in Florida. It keeps me cool for hours.
I have used this everyday while turning and sanding....I work in my garage and have a huge fan blowing..but still hot! some days. With this powercap, I have cool/ambient air blowing in front of my face and I can work all day! Its light weight and I cannot feel it on my head nor gives me neck strain. I can see ear to ear wise, plenty of clarity. I am ecstatic with its ability,
Love this respirator for when my Power Cap is too much. It goes over my glasses without any interference!
It was great to meet you at the AAW Symposium. I did purchase the Powercap Face Seal replacement. I am glad to have it on hand when I need it. I think the Powercap is an excellent product.
Having a beard and wearing glasses presents challenges when using a respirator and face shield. Those challenges have been overcome with my new Powercap. At about half the cost of other PAPR face shields it’s light, comfortable and effective. I see better and breathe easily while turning on the lathe and sanding the studio. It’s a great product and I wish I would have bought it years ago.
Thanks for the quick shipment - it was a simple swap to replace the original fan unit, which threw a blade. Seems like they'd choose a sturdier fan, but it did hold up for two years of intermittent use.
After years of woodworking using various sorts of masks, filters, and shields I purchased the CleanAir system. What an amazing difference! No more dust in my eyes, no irritation or sneezing. The positive pressure keeps me isolated from potentially harmful substances and never fogs up. I have already recommended it to several members of my woodturning club..Thanks!
I work in a confined space and the power cap has proved invaluable in making it more comfortable and safe. My glasses no longer fog up and breathing is so much easier.
I wear my Powercap in the woodshop, particularly when I'm using a dust-producing machine. I breathe easier and very seldom cough or sneeze from dust particles. I also wear it while mowing the yard as my Floridian yard can be very dusty. Add some earplugs and I've got my ears, eyes and lungs protected. Good product and worth the money!
I am very pleased with the quality of this Half Mask Respirator. This has solved a longtime problem with dust and particle in the eyes and lungs while mowing dry grass. Much more comfortable than I expected.
I now own 3 Powercaps for myself and my assistants. Nothing else on the market gives you the protection of this unit. This is one of the best investments you can make for your carving business and for your personal health.
The motor was malfunctioning on my mask. Called Peke and they were quickly able to send a replacement ( for a reasonable fee).
Powercap and battery. One of the best must haves I’ve ever bought. Lightweight, comfortable and cool looking and works great. This cap will save your lungs in the long run. I’m well satisfied and passes all my expectations. If you don’t have one I urge you to get one and way way better than any mask. It will be a great investment that you would not regret. They not even paying me to say this. Very comfortable. Easy to get on and off. Lightweight and work great.
I’m a hobbyist knife maker, and I frequently use micarta or G10. The dust from synthetic materials can be pretty gross, and I can’t even tell I’m grinding anything while wearing this. I also tend to be pretty allergic to exotic hardwood dust, but I’m not affected by them at all while wearing the powercap. The battery life is solid. It’s also as comfortable as something like this can be. This cap is more comfortable over extended periods of time than traditional half face respirators are.
It is good to get the respirator back for use. The repaired motor makes a slight ticking noise and the face shield has come loose at the top because my head is a little large and the face shield is a little small.
just a friendly reminder...update the website more regularly so we know what is really in stock!
