Simply place your phone or other accessories in the Sterilizer box and close the lid. Now press the button on top to activate a 1 or 5 minute sterilization cycle. During the active cycle, a powerful UV-C light is emitted that kills 99.9% of germs.
This UV-C light effectively destroys nucleic acids and breaks apart bacteria DNA. With their DNA broken, bacteria can’t function or reproduce, and the organisms die.
UV light has three wavelength categories: UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C. UV-C light is a short-wavelength, ultraviolet light that breaks apart germ DNA, leaving it unable to function or reproduce. In other words, UV-C light is germicidal (UV-A and UV-B light are not).
With powerful UV-C light inside, the sterilizer has a deadly effect on microorganisms, disease causing pathogens and germs.
The UV-C light in the Sterilizer spreads 360 degrees and ensures disinfection across all surfaces. UV-C light penetrates the cell and disrupts the germ DNA, killing the pathogen.
The UV-C light is not hot, so while it is extremely efficient in killing disease causing germs and pathogens, it does not harm your phone or any other gadget.
You can feel confident your phone and other accessories are safe inside the sterilizer, but the germs are not!
According to The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (USA), UV-C light in addition to household bacteria and germs, has been shown to destroy related coronaviruses, including the one that causes the disease MERS, so it is probable that UV-C is effective in destroying the novel coronavirus COVID-19.
Only the agencies that are working to contain COVID-19 have access to the novel strain of the coronavirus, thus a UV-C testing has not yet been done to claim it kills COVID-19
As quoted by TIME based on a research by the University of Arizona, our mobile phones carry 7-10 times more germs than a toilet seat. Thus making it important for us to sterilize our phones and other regularly used gadgets/accessorizes regularly.
