We’re now in the final stretch of Valentine’s Day shopping, but that doesn’t mean your gift choice has to suffer. This year, give the chocolates, flowers and fragrances a break and opt for something a bit more practical and particularly ideal for the current times, instead.

With so much stress placed on sanitation lately, many folks have made more of an effort to keep their phones clean. This is pretty ideal as studies show that cell phones are 10 times dirtier than toilet seats (gross, right?).

One of the easiest, fastest and most mess-free ways to sanitize your device is with a UV smartphone sanitizer and the PhoneSoap Pro is one of the best on the market as it fully sanitizes your device in just five minutes.

And now through Feb. 14 (Valentine’s Day), you can buy one and get one for 50 percent off (discount automatically applied at checkout).

Arrives before Valentine’s Day

Clinically proven to kill 99.99 percent of germs on phones and other devices, the PhoneSoap Pro is the most advanced in the product lineup and does the job faster than any other PhoneSoap device.

When compared to other popular PhoneSoap products like the PhoneSoap Wireless and the PhoneSoap 3, the PhoneSoap Pro is much more powerful in a number of ways.

How does it work?

The doubled quantity of bulbs, which, in turn, also double the power of the UV lights make this faster sanitization process possible with the PhoneSoap Pro.

In case you’re curious, here’s how it works: The device’s UVC technology kills germs on the phone’s surface through lightbulbs located at the top and bottom of the device’s interior.

How do I use the device?

To use the device, simply place your phone or any object you wish to sanitize inside the bay and close the lid — that’s it!

Once the sanitization process begins, the lightning bolt on its top cover will illuminate. When five minutes have passed, the lightning bolt will fade, indicating that the sanitizing process is over.

What are reviewers saying about the PhoneSoap Pro?

The PhoneSoap Pro currently has an overall customer rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars on Amazon. The general consensus among shoppers is that it’s “a blessing to have during the COVID-19 crisis.”

“I love the ease of operation and the comfort it gives me as I use it on all the things around the house (i.e. phone keys, rings, remotes),” one five-star reviewer wrote.

Another shopped added that they “can tell the difference of ‘cleanliness’ of cell phones, cases and key [fobs] after using the device.”

As someone who owns the PhoneSoap Pro, myself, I can attest to all of these reviewers’ claims. While the device does not charge your phone wirelessly like the PhoneSoap Wireless, it does have a port to allow your phone to charge via cable while it sanitizes.

Please note that while the device is available for Amazon Prime delivery, the “BOGO 50 percent off deal” is only available on
