The HoMedics® UV-Clean Portable Sanitizer sanitizes your phone and other personal items, like keys, jewelry, eyeglasses, remotes, cash and earbuds—things you don't usually think about washing. Small enough to fit in a backpack or carry-on, yet strong enough to kill up to 99.9% of germs, viruses and bacteria, UV-Clean provides up to 18 uses per charge. Armed with 4 UV-C LEDs, UV-Clean maximizes LED coverage during sanitization while maintaining a sleek form. Environmentally friendly and free of mercury and chemicals, UV-Clean uses UV, a short wavelength light invisible to the human eye, to kill germs, viruses and bacteria by disrupting their DNA so they can't function or reproduce. Ultra-portable and rechargeable for convenient use on the go!
