Cell phones aren't exactly the cleanest objects given how much they are used each day. Most of the time, you can't even see how dirty they actually are. So Violight has the ultimate gadget for the techie afraid of germs: a UV cell phone sanitizing station.
The UV light is expected to kill 99% of bacteria on the device, including strep, e.coli, salmonella and H1N1. Maybe they should install a few of these in airports next time there's another pandemic outbreak. Powered by only a trio of AA batteries, the job should be done in under five minutes.
Also, the sanitizer should be able to hold most cell phones, MP3 players, Bluetooth headsets and even earbuds - not just the iPhone pictured above. To see the Violight do its sanitizing action on a smartphone, check out the promo video.
However, you'd really have to be a germaphobe to buy this (or know one if you're gifting it), as it costs $49.95 when it launches in October.
