Impersonating a cell phone, this device features an ultraviolet light emitting bulb that will supposedly disinfect everything it lays its eyes on. Anal retentive obsessive compulsives rejoice!
Claims from the Sharper Image product page:
This pocketsize disinfecting light kills up to 99.99% of infectious bacteria and viruses on all kinds of surfaces — not just hard, nonporous surfaces; it is safe and effective on fabric, leather, unpainted wood, too. Unlike disinfecting wet wipes, with UV light you don’t have to wait almost five minutes for it to work and to dry. Instead, a quick 10-second scan is all it takes to destroy staph, salmonella, E.coli, flu viruses and more on keyboards, mice, phones, doorknobs, counters, pens, even a piano!
Long-lasting, 4,000-hour UV bulb provides a lifetime of surface scans. Flip-open gadget measures 3.5" x 1.5" x 1" and weighs only 5 oz. Runs on 2 AAA batteries (included). 90-day warranty.
