Basically anything you can fit into the cleaner will be blasted with UV light for a few minutes of UV light cleaning power. Here is the video walk through of the un-boxing and usage.
One distinct thing to note is that this is killing the unseen germs, not making your device shiny. I suggest using some form of cleaner to get off all the normal stuff, smudges and smears from your devices and then tossing it in. There is an included basket to hang your earbuds, stash your bluetooth headsets and more. A graphical sizer sits on the outside of the box. I was easily able to place my HTC Evo (including Siedio case Seidio Innocase II Surface Case for HTC EVO 4G (Black)) into the cleaner.
I know you sit and wonder if it really did it's job? Someone in the office noticed the ozone odor on their Blackberry after using it. I am guessing that it is doing it's job! Do not forget, it takes 3 AA batteries to operate. We have not needed to change batteries after at least thirty uses of the device so far.
I did a video review on YouTube as well
So do I recommend it? Based on their performance with other UV sanitizer products, this is worth it!
To answer my own question previously posted, the way to check whether the UV bulbs are actually working is to go to a dark room, insert the cage, and align the magnet in the back of the cover bottom to the spot where it would normally touch without putting the cover on. The two UV bulbs should light up. If not, it's time to replace.
I'd recommend every owner try it once when the bulbs are still working to know the difference.
Also, leave the cage out when you close the cover after each use, it will double your battery life by skipping an otherwise automatic run as explained below.
* Killing the germs on portable electronics is important, and there aren't that solutions available without getting wet as far as I'm aware.
* Cool, sleek design, a pleasure to look at.
* Batteries seem to last.
* Dead corners/sides that UV won't reach
* The flashing blue light outside is not UV. A small window on the back with UV-blocking polycarbonate would be user-friendly for maintenance.
* Larger or thicker phones won't fit. You can't skip the removable cage as it triggers a sensor for the device to turn on.
* Everytime you close the cover with the cage in, it runs a sanitation cycle, regardless if there's anything in the cage. It's a waste of battery.
* Not sure if the UV would hurt the LCD display with long-term use. Well, we probably replace our phones before any damage.

This cellphone sanitizer is easy to operate and appears to do the job. Since cell phone exteriors can be rather germ covered, I wanted a device set up for easy sanitation. Read morePublished on March 1, 2014 by D. Shipley
