Once upon a time we weren't bothered that the things we carry around with us -- phones, keys, earbuds -- are a hellstew of bacteria. Then, the coronavirus showed up, and we learned the importance of basic hygiene again.

Tests show that using a UV sanitizer is one of the best ways of the method of cleaning a smartphone, and accessory maker Totallee has unveiled a new UV phone sanitizer with a twist.

The UV sanitizer is powered by dual, ultraviolet lights that kill harmful germs and bacteria on your cell phone, keys, wallet, AirPods, and more.

But there's more -- built into the lid of the sanitizer is a fast wireless charging pad that works with all Qi-enabled devices (10W max for Samsung devices, 7.5W max for iPhones). This fast charger requires a QC 2.0/3.0 adapter which is not included.
