UV sanitizers are the present — and honestly, the future — of phone cleaning systems with several versions selling out across multiple retailers.
Knowing that cell phones harbor tons of bacteria and with scientists at the University of Arizona finding that they are actually 10 times dirtier than toilet seats, folks are actively seeking solutions to make using their handheld tech a safer experience. While PhoneSoap and Casetify’s UV Sanitizer have proven to be the leaders in this race, Nordstrom is currently offering a more affordable version that will seamlessly blend into your natural home decor.
Boasting the form factor of a beautiful tabletop vase, the Lexon Oblio Wireless Charger and UV Cleaner fully disguises your device while recharging and using UV light to efficiently kill “up to 99.9 percent of proliferating bacterias most commonly identified on smartphones’ displays.” The sanitization process takes just 20 minutes. It should be noted that this sanitization device has not been described to kill viruses.
The device is compatible with all Qi-enabled smartphones (phones with wireless charging capabilities) and connects to any outlet via USB-C.
Shoppers have already been raving about the compact and chic product’s performance with one highlighting that it’s “simple, elegant” and “easy charging.”
Another five-star reviewer added that it “works great” before stressing that it gives them peace of mind by “having a ‘clean’ phone each day.”
However, a negative review noted that while this gadget is aesthetically stunning and sleek, it is not spacious enough to charge and sanitize phones in bulky cases or with attached Pop Sockets.
“Doesn’t fit iPhone 11 if it has a popsocket on it,” one shopper wrote, with a second adding, “Only downside is if you have a larger case such as an otterbox or have a popsocket attached, you will have to remove the case to make the phone fit.”
The second shopper specified, however, that their iPhone X “fits well without having to remove the case.”
