VIOlight Announces National Availability of the First Ever UV Cell Phone Sanitizer in Time for Cold & Flu Season Studies Show Cell Phones Carry 18 Times More Germs than Toilets
YONKERS, N.Y., Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- VIOlight, the leading brand of toothbrush sanitizers, announces today the availability of the first ever UV Cell Phone Sanitizer that eliminates up to 99.9% of germs and bacteria on cell phones, and other small electronic devices. VIOlight's germicidal UV light - the same ground-breaking technology used in hospitals - decreases the number of strep, E. coli, salmonella, listeria, and H1N1 virus germs and bacteria in three minutes.
Studies show the average cell phone carries more germs per square inch than doorknobs, soles of shoes and most toilet seats. "Our goal is to help make people's lives healthier with every product we develop," said Joel Pinsky, co-developer and founder of VIOlight. "Consumers can now utilize the same UV technology used to clean their toothbrushes for their cell phones and other small electronics devices they use every day."
The VIOlight Cell Phone Sanitizer is battery operated, portable, and easy to use. To activate, place your cell phone, earbuds, Bluetooth headsets or other small electronic device into the cradle, close the lid, and a blue-violet indicator light signals that the sanitizer is working. The twin UV bulbs automatically shut off after three minutes when your device is ready.
The Cell Phone Sanitizer is available now for $49.99 at Brookstone, Hammacher Schlemmer, and Cellphone.violight.com.
