Accessory maker totallee has announced its brand new UV phone sanitizer, which can kill germs and bacteria on your phone.
The new device costs $99, and its website states:
According to totallee's website, your phone is 18 times dirtier than a public toilet. The UV phone sanitizer uses UVB and UVC rays to eliminate germs and bacteria from your phone. It also doubles as a fast wireless charger that is compatible with all Qi-enabled devices. It works at up to 10W for Samsung devices and up to 7.5W for iPhone. It will also support Fast Charging, however, you need to buy a specific QC 2.0/3.0 adapter for that.
totallee told us that you can also use the UV phone sanitizer for other small items you handle all the time, such as your keys, your wallet or even your AirPods.
Right now the UV phone sanitizer is available to pre-order on their website at the aforementioned price, and products will start shipping on April 15. The UV phone sanitizer also comes with a 2-year warranty, where totallee will send you a free product replacement should anything happen to yours, and there's a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Thanks for the heads up! Just ordered 3 and one of them is free! NOTE: add the code "THIRD" if you want the third one for free.
Update: had to return these. There are 2 major design problems, from my perspective, that makes it impractical to use: like most people, our smartphones are constant companions and, therefore: 1) because it takes either 18 or 30 minutes to disinfect, the only time anybody will actually complete the procedure is during the night after going to bed/to sleep; however:
2) the device beeps when the cycle is over and, thus, will wake us up. Will try another brand.
