Fall is upon us. That means more time inside. That means coughing. That means flu. That means… we had all do our best to stay healthy. Obviously the best way to do that is to wash your hands frequently with soap and water. In addition, a new gadget can help. The VIOlight Cellphone Sanitizer uses UV light to quickly and safely kill 99.9% of bacteria and germs that might be living on your cellphone, earbuds and other small gadgets. It is battery operated, simple to use and silent. Best of all it is under $50.

It is super simple to use.

Pull the top off the base.

Pull the basket out and turn it over so it can receive your cellphone, mp3 player or earbuds.

Put the device you want to sanitize in the basket.

Put the top back on and wait for the pleasant blue light to stop pulsing.

That’s it. It is quick, simple and quiet.

Here is a quick look at my using it for the first time…

Here is the company’s promo video…

I can’t know if it works for sure since I do not have a bacteria-checking kit here are home, and one can only hope that it does what it promises. What I do know for sure is that it is well made, easy to use, and I’ll be using it all winter.

The Violight UV Cell Phone Sanitizer is available directly from Violight and other retailers.

MSRP: $49.95

What I Like: Simple to use: silent; battery operated; just in time for flu season

What Needs Improvement: Assuming it does what it promises… nothing.

    Found this on wikianswers:

    http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Do_ultraviolet_sanitizers_work

    Apparently it is used in Pool filters and even sewage treatment.

    I had a toothbrush head cleaner for a Sonicare toothbrush and it worked ok, but like this I have no way of verifying that it did work.

    I guess you could wet a sterile Qtip and wipe it on the phone.

    What kind of review is that?  He doesn’t even tell us if the Violight works.  Pathetic!

      Even though your comment is rude and shows you to be small and pathetic I approved it. Please try to be a bit more constructive in the future.
      As far as the device goes…
      It kills bacteria. Bacteria are not visible to the naked eye. If you have a microscope and would like to do a scientific examination I would be happy to send it to you.
