When it comes to keeping your hands free from germs, using soap and water usually the go-to. However, you can’t exactly scrub your smartphone or keyboard under the tap. Instead, you might want to invest in UV technology. These high-tech sanitizers at the PopSci Shop can sterilize your devices in minutes, and they are now up to 44 percent off MSRP.
According to scientists at the University of Arizona, the average smartphone display harbors 10 times more bacteria than a toilet seat. Using UV light technology, this cell phone sanitizer helps you blast those nasties away.
Designed specifically for mobile devices, it kills 99.9 percent of all germs in just 15 minutes. Thanks to a 5,000mAh rechargeable battery, you can use it anywhere. Normally $49.99, the sanitizer is now only $37.95.
Another great option for cleansing mobile devices, the UV Shield takes only five minutes to blast away germs using UV-C light. Along with smartphones up to 6.5 inches in size, it can sanitize keys, pacifiers, jewelry, earbuds, and countless other small items.
The UV Shield runs on any USB power supply, and you can choose from three different modes. Weighing just 11 ounces, it’s also portable. Usually priced at $59.99, the UV Shield is now just $49.99.
When time is tight, you may not have time to charge your phone and sanitize it separately. But with this 2-in-1 device, you can complete both tasks at once.
While a UV light shines down from above to kill germs, the base serves as a powerful Qi wireless charger. It supports up to 10W fast charging with Android devices, with an intelligent chip that recognizes your phone. Place other items on the base, and only the sanitizing light will switch on. Worth $44.99, the charger and sanitizer is now $37.99 with free shipping.
A study of 21,000 patients by Duke University found that treating a hospital room with UV light reduced the transmission of drug-resistant bacteria by 30 percent. The UV Phone Sanitizer Box brings that technology into your home.
A little larger than the other options on this list, the box has space inside for smartphones and wearable devices up to 6.8 inches. It sterilizes 99 percent of germs in five minutes, and you only need to press one button to set the process in motion. Usually priced at $89.99, it’s now 44% off at $49.99.
