Good deal, paid that much for the original Phonesoap and thought that was good. There must've been a serious overestimation of demand for these during the pandemic.

Hair dryer to your phone for 20 seconds works a lot faster and it's cheaper than this.
A) this doesn't kill most bacteria/viruses
B) the heat is terrible for the life of your battery

Just rub it rapidly between the palm of your hands, or, just lick it, your antibodies should bind the virus and digest it. Thanks Forest

Some of these UV sanitizers are scams because they don't actually output UV-C, but the PhoneSoap is legit. I've personally tested mine with a UV-C dosimeter and confirmed that it outputs sufficient UV-C to kill bacteria.

If you want more evidence, there are two independent tests here [youtube.com]and here [youtube.com] from news stations. And even better, there's a published study from MIT researchers [nih.gov] where they specifically tested a PhoneSoap and concluded, "254-nm UVC devices providing a dose of 60 mJ/cm2, with UVC bulbs exposing both sides of the smartphone, were an effective nonliquid method for smartphone sanitization."

That 60 mJ/cm^2 value was specifically referring to the 5 min Phonesoap cycle, that means the Phonesoap they tested had an irradiance of 0.2 mW/cm^2.

Whether or not Phonesoap is effective against coronaviruses like SARS-CoV-2 is another question. This study published in Nature [nature.com] determined, "Under a UV-C irradiance of 0.849 mW/cm2, partial inactivation occurred from 0.8 s of exposure, while SARS-CoV-2 virus infectivity was reduced to below detectable levels in as few as 9 s for dried virus and 4 s for wet virus." Based on that info, it's very likely that the running the 0.2 mW/cm^2 irradiance Phonesoap for the standard 5 or 10 min cycle will be plenty of time inactivate the COVID-19 virus.

There's another study [nih.gov] saying that a 10.2 mJ/cm^2 is needed to inactivate SARS-CoV-2, that means the Phonesoap would only need to run for 53 seconds to be effective.

I was mostly joking.

Re: Covid, there seems to be very little proof that you can get infected from surfaces anyway.

I figured you were kidding, but I just wanted an excuse to post that info here anyway (it was a copy/paste from somewhere else I posted) Smilie

But also yeah, you're right about surface transmission, I think the CDC said there's a 1 in 10,000 chance of getting infected from surfaces. I still use the PhoneSoap mainly because of bacteria and other pathogens.

That's why I'm getting it too. Not necessarily for Covid but this pandemic has opened my eyes and turned me into a big time germophobe. People are dirty.
