Best Cell Phone UV Sanitizers

If you are concerned about viruses and want to keep your small items clean, you will want to check this list with cell phone UV sanitizers suitable for smartphones and similar small items that you use all the time.

What UV disinfection is about

These devices are sold under the name mobile phone sanitizers, and these are small boxes large enough to put your smartphone inside. According to what the manufacturers claim, after a few minutes, your phone will be clean from viruses and bacterias.

But those are boxes, so you can use them also for various other items and clean them the same way, like your keys, glasses, even your face masks.

This UV technology for killing viruses and bacteria is nothing new. In fact, a Nobel Prize in medicine was awarded as far back as in 1903 for UV treatment of some germs. This technology has been used for many years in the outdoor industry for water purifiers. But due to the current situation in the world, obviously, such UV devices are much more needed in everyday life.

A few warnings here. You will see the term ‘smart phone sanitizers’ or ‘mobile phone sanitizers’ being used. So the stress is on the word ‘sanitizers’ and manufacturers try to avoid ‘sterilization’. You will see also sometimes the word ‘disinfection’ used because the process of cleaning is perhaps never perfect. This means also you will see the statements like ‘99.99%’ instead of ‘100%’ sterile.

How these mobile phone sanitizers work

This is all about electromagnetic waves. So UV light is electromagnetic radiation and the wavelengths are shorter than visible light, but they are also longer than X-rays. The short-wavelength UV (UVC) is normally considered “germicidal UV”.

I have been used the previously mentioned water purifiers in my hiking and mountaineering tools and I have always been confident that they worked. Wavelengths from a certain range are strongly absorbed by nucleic acids, and this absorbed energy can result in defects that prevent replication resulting in the death or inactivation of the organism. So they are not necessarily killing the germs directly, they affect their reproduction and this is what makes them harmless.

So what happens to microbes is a bit similar to the effects of sunburn in humans. Microbes have no protection against UV and cannot survive prolonged exposure to it. This is why some claim that the current coronavirus expansion will eventually decrease due to warm weather, at least on the northern hemisphere.

All in all, what you have here is a sort of dry sterilizing or dry sanitizing technology. These are UV phone cleaners, and there is no extra heat so no worry about your phone, it will not be damaged when you sanitize it in these phone sanitizers. Some are designed so that you can use them also as phone chargers, see one example in this short video:

What exactly you can sanitize in these UV cleaners

I already mentioned above that you can sanitize anything that fits into such a UV sanitizer box. This can include:

  • Smartphones.
  • Cash.
  • Watches.
  • Jewelry.
  • Glasses.
  • Keys, and many other small items.

There are some small differences in sizes, so check in the specifications for each of the items in the list below. So here is our list with Cell Phone UV Sanitizers that are among the most popular currently on the market. When you see how affordable they are, you understand why they are so popular.
