Static removal with ion generators

Has anyone tried using an ion generator such as these with one set for positive ions and the other set for negative ions to remove static electricity from an LP ? A fan would be required to move the ions over the LP like the Furutech Destat does. This would cost maybe $50 to build with a fan , any thoughts ?
Seems like technological overkill to me. A $25 Kinetronics anti-static brush does the same thing and works in less time with less fuss. Buy it from big photo supply houses like Adorama or B&H Photo.
