PLEASE NOTE THIS ITEM HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED AND REPLACED WITH THE FOLLOWING MODEL:
Why many people may not realize it UV light may be the most commons mean to disinfect and kill bacteria and viruses. Hospitals and water treatment plants use UV light as a primary means for disinfecting. The UV-C is a small UV light wand that can scanned over surfaces to disinfect surfaces. While this light is impractical for larger areas it will work smaller areas.
– Requires 4 AA which are not included
– The light appears to work as intended but the combination of size and intensity means that disinfecting any area greater than 1 square foot will take quite a bit of time. Remember the instructions state a 30 second exposure is optimal
– The light has a built-in auto-off feature if the light is rotated this is to prevent accidental exposure.
– While the light will kill bacteria, virus, and other living things it will not have any effect on chemical contamination – so if the surface has been exposed to a nasty chemical UV lights will not help.
– While the light is "Travel Model" it is still pretty large – roughly the size of a curling iron.
Final verdict – While the light probably is not practical for sanitizing large areas it will work for disinfecting smaller areas. The added safety features are very nice and helps to minimize the possibility of accidental exposure.

This device claims to be able to sterilize your phone and kill bacteria using UV light. But how well does it work? I decided to test it out myself.

The PhoneSoap is a device that uses Ultraviolet light to sanitize and sterilize your phone, claiming to be able to kill bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens. In this review, I test it for myself, and do a science experiment to find out how well the PhoneSoap can kill phone bacteria. I used petri dishes to find out how much bacteria was on my phone before and after using the phone sanitizer. In the end, I did find that the PhoneSoap clearly worked, and was able to kill basically any bacteria that was on the phone before.

A public transport company in Shanghai has deployed ultraviolet (UV) light units to disinfect public buses using less time and manpower. Officials from China’s National Health Commission point out that the coronavirus that causes Covid-19 is sensitive to ultraviolet light and heat. The World Health Organisation, however, cautions the general public about the use of UV lamps for directly sterilising hands or other areas of skin.

Time-lapse footage of bacteria-covered petri plates growing after being exposed to UV light. UV light kills bacteria, with longer exposure times resulting in higher cell mortality.
The elapsed time is shown in each clip. The petri plates were incubated at about 37 degrees Celsius.
The lamp used has two 15 watt bulbs. The lamp has 110 volts and the wavelength is 254 nm, UV-C.
