UPDATE: Shows back in stock as of 1:30PM PT 9/23. It seems to have gone in and out of stock a few times within hours so keep checking if it looks OOS as the seller may have put more into stock since he has these in other counts like 20 and 10 packs so he must have more stock.

Same seller (jp-genuine) that had the 50-pack of KN95 masks on eBay a few days ago for $14.39 (in this thread: https://slickdeals.net/f/14352878-kn95-protective-5-layers-face-mask-50-pack-14-39) has it back on sale, this time for $14.99 on eBay with free shipping, so only about a penny more per mask than the previous deal.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/154026055696

I've asked the seller and he confirms these are the same Nanoflo brand as the last deal, which I missed out on so I can't vouch for how good they are compared to other KN95 masks.

Yes, I know these are not FDA-approved masks and have no independent certification, but given how many threads there have been about the Chinese KN95 masks over the months, I assume anyone buying these now is making an informed decision on their own if these are appropriate for their needs. I'd say they are certainly better than a typical disposable surgical mask or a bandana, but I would hope everyone knows by now that these likely don't compare well to real N-95 masks.I wear them cause I feel they protect better than the 90% of people I encounter every day who are either wearing a bandana or a disposable surgical mask that is clearly being reworn for the 100th time. At 30 cents a mask, I'm not complaining. Like most of these types of masks, there's the usual disclaimer that it's "not for medical use."

Please kindly don't thumbs down just cause you personally don't think any of these eBay KN95 masks are a valid alternative to N-95 masks. It's a bit of a pointless endless debate.

good advice.. Do any office stores carry them ?
Coming from a krn... don't buy the kf94, they mostly are chinese knock offs. Krn govt regulated from production to distribution, so very limited amt actually ended up overseas which probably ended up in health care facilities.

Buy KF94
Too many fake ones. $5/mask from reputable ebayer.

All KF94 in Amazon are fake, except for Co&Bo brand.

Ebay KF94 only Healmade is not fake

I'm sure that's true, but neither does a bandana, or most of the other face coverings you see out there. I seriously wonder about the ever popular blue masks. Obviously not tight fitting, so unless the material catches everything that goes out of your mouth, how good can they be?
Not to mention incoming.

No, but I'm sure someone here will tell you they know. There are a few ways to test a N96, KN95, etc., but none of them involve looking at it on Ebay.
You would have to have the exact same mask in hand, and even then, who is to say the next batch shipped will be the same quality?
We are all doomed:-(

Remember how China bought up all the west's PPE and masks and sanitizer, and then shipped it back to glorious Communist motherland? And how they're now selling us metric tons of counterfeit PPE?
You can't get any real ones right now anyway, so what's your point?

And doesn't mean consumers shouldn't be informed that these masks are ineffective and fail to meet quality standards.

good luck finding any USA made or 3M N95 masks?


These are at least better than the surgical mask most people are using it seems

Got any data to support that claim?

There are actually studies that tested the efficacy of homemade masks and the results were promising depending on the method. But yeah, bandanas have shown to be poor in said studies. Lol

They have a number on the bottom of the box that can only be entered once. The ones I got were confirmed real online and are exactly the ones I got from work that were bought pre covid.

Great find. Thank you!! I've been buying these from this seller all summer and they are great. Yes, I said great. Folks really need to stop complaining and downvoting these types of posts because they aren't "authentic" or the real deal. Want a real one? Go steal one from a hospital or wear a hazmat suit. I guarantee these are better than the homemade mask you made your in your mom's basement, neck gaiter, surgical mask, or even not wearing anything at all! You're on a silly (but amazing) website looking for deals. This is a great one. #MaskUp

Can you please provide the site where you verified the N95? I didn't know that existed and sounds useful.
Thanks

Just search for 3m n95 verification. Only certain models can be verified. Not all 3m N95s

Read the primary source that article is based on. They're saying up to 70% of KN95 don't meet the standards of N95 masks needed for hospital use but not that they're completely ineffective. These should rank between a cloth mask and a full N95, which is to be expected given their construction.

ECRI testing of imported FFRs has revealed that 60-70% provide only sub-95% filtration performance.
■This trend aligns with what NIOSH has found through their own testing; as of September 2, 2020, 53% of the 358 FFR models tested did not meet N95 filtration requirements
