UV sanitizers are the present — and honestly, the future — of phone cleaning, with versions selling out across multiple retailers since the COVID-19 pandemic began.
And there’s an actual need for these devices, seeing as phones harbor high amounts of bacteria. In fact, scientists at the University of Arizona recently found phone are actually 10 times dirtier than toilet seats.
Boasting the form of a beautiful tabletop vase, the Lexon OBLIO UV Sanitizing Wireless Charging Station fully disguises your device while recharging and disinfecting its surface. The gadget uses “UV light with ionizer technology” to eliminate “99.9 percent of your smartphone’s germs in 20 minutes.” Plus, it’s available in black and white.
The device is compatible with all Qi-enabled smartphones (phones with wireless charging capabilities) and connects to any outlet via USB-C.
Shoppers rave about the product’s performance, with some highlighting its fun form. According to one customer, the product is “so convenient and worth the price.” Another buyer called it an “awesome product, and it even gives my room a cool light!”
Still, a couple of reviewers highlighted two cons of the product: The charging station’s light isn’t as bright as they thought it would be and you can’t put your phone into the device with a phone case on.
