Why did this mask fail?
Video TranscriptHey everyone, welcome back. We're testing every single mask on Amazon. Very excited because today I am testing a bunch of KF94's, which is an amazing format that I love. And look at this, look at the packaging. Kind of weird, right? Comes in this big, old bag instead of a box. But what you're going to find out really quickly is most of the KF94's are individually packaged in this super hot, wow, packaging. It's just great design. Let's get it in the clamper and then we can talk more KF94's if you don't know about them.
Unfortunately, I haven't been able to read the KF94 format standard because the standard is... I've only been able to find it in Korean. If you can find the standard in English, you'd be my BFF. That's best friend forever.
Let it rip. This is a PFE machine, particular filtration efficiency machine. I love the packaging. You know that I love the packaging. Bought this on Amazon. I mean, shoot a monkey, less than a dollar each. How can you go wrong for that? Delivered. I think what happened was KF94's started to blow up in the United States and they got on Amazon. And what's great is that you're going to see that all of these, they have Korean writing on them because it's a Korean standard.
In fact, I did hear that part of the KF94 standard is that it has to be made in Korea. That's how the Korean FDA can actually hold everyone to these very, very high standards. Because they can actually walk into the factory and see if they're good or not.
Some people might go, oh, this is weird that it's in Korean, I don't understand Korean. It says, easy well, yellow dust protection mask, which we kind of put together probably means pollen, right? It's just probably some translation error there, but it's a really, really great format that I found.
I'm going to open this up and I'm going to test this. Also, this one says FDA on it, and I think what that means is that it's been registered as a surgical mask at the FDA. Let me try this on. Pretty good fit it. This smells like the lobby of an Extended Sweets America, which is not a bad smell, but it's not a good smell. It's just a smell. And then look at that, that's pretty good. I could tell it's probably going to break if I do that, but that's pretty good overall.
All right, but does any of that matter for doesn't protect you? And I got to admit guys, I cheated. I snuck a glance, and I'm sorry that I did because we can't experience this together, because for the first time we are seeing a KF94 fail standards. Oh. Easy Well, oh no, no, South Korea, come on man. What happened?
All right, well, caveat, I'm just testing one mask here, typically you're going to test a bun of them. There are a lot of different things that can happen, and it is very close to 94%. It's not like it's coming in at like 70%, which we've gotten with a lot of KN95's, or less. I think we had one at 58 today.
That said, I've tested a lot of KF94's, I'll put a link below to all the ones that I've tested, there are better ones out there. There are ones that are 99%. And honestly, without knowing more, I personally would choose a different one. Sorry Easy Well, you're not going to get off that easy. Not today, not with sheriff Floyd on the case.
This is the last mask test of the day so you're going to have to forgive me, my zingers are not zinging, or not zanging. All right, we will catch you on the next test. You know what? Last test of the day request, just the only time I'm asking today, seriously the only time, I know you think I'm going to be one of those YouTubers like, give me a like and subscribe, but you know if you watch my videos I don't care about that. He cares about that. Send me some of your masks. If you have some masks we haven't tested, especially some foreign masks that I don't have access to, because I'm limited to my local Amazon, send me those masks. I'm going to put my address down there and I would love to test the mask that you send me. Thank you very much and I will catch you on the next test, maybe it's yours.
