Why did this mask fail?
Video TranscriptHey, everyone. Welcome back to the place. We're testing every single mask on Amazon, even ones that are a set and cannot be separated. I'm talking of course, about the HB Kang 100 pack. Let's put it in the clamper and get it going. Huh? Huh? Let's do it. Okay. Let's see here. HB Klang or Kang? Kang? Kang. All right here we go. I got it. We did it. Let her rip. This is a PFE machine, particular filtration efficiency machine. We are shooting hundreds of thousands of tiny particulates at point one microns, doing the American standard surgical mass task here to tell you if you can trust what these guys at HB Kang are saying. This woman seems like she's being forced to take this photo. Doesn't she?
Excellent breathability, we shall see. Look at this, "Protects wearer from dust and some particles." That's not a ringing endorsement. Let's look at the box. Let's look at the box. I have it labeled box on my switcher, but this isn't a box, is it? It's a set. Do not separate. This is a, wow, 6.24, that six cents a mask delivered to your house, basically free. So it doesn't even matter if it protects you because for this price, they're paying you to take it. We're talking about your health here people, is it worth it? You knew that was going to happen. These are really nice ear loops. They look very soft, but what good her ear loops if they don't stay in your ears, am I right? Try it on. Nice nose wear.
I can't place this smell. So I'm only going to call it Must Be an Amazon Fulfillment Center. The packaging is not very thick, so it's going to smell like whatever it happens to be next to. I'm just wondering if I like, yeah, if you just move at all, like if you buy these, make sure you take four or five with you when you go into the grocery store because I think like you're just going to be shopping for carrots or broccoli or whatever it is that you're shopping for, and it's just going to break. Actually, this one's good. The other one though is like, yeah, that's awful. But you get my point. It's fine. But does any of that matter if it protects you or not? That's what we're here for folks. To see what the Oracle, our local god, the PFE machine, does this protect you?
$250,000 lab says, "Nope, way off." 81.126 81, is that really shocking though? Is it really shocking? $6 for 100 masks. That's a really great deal. This is one of those file this under "you get what you pay for." And someone call help for this girl. I'm worried about her. Very worried. What was the breathability? 60 pascals. They didn't lie about the breathability though. And they didn't lie about anything else, because there's literally no words on this package, which I'm pretty sure is a violation of the federal trade commission. Because you need to say where something comes from and this doesn't. All right, thank you guys so much for watching. Appreciate you being here and I'll catch you on the next test, which is every day at 10:00 AM. I'll see you tomorrow.
