It had to happen right? This Violight Smartphone Sanitizer is designed to eliminate with extreme prejudice those nasty germs that hang out on your cell phone, generally making a nuisance of themselves. Somehow I have the feeling that our increasing obsession in ridding the world of bugs and germs is going to get us into some serious trouble one day, once the germs get fed up enough to retaliate. But we digress. $49.95.
The UV light reaches into keypad crevices and other hidden areas that sustain germ vitality. The case holds a smartphone or iPod and automatically begins to sanitize the outward surfaces once the lid is closed and turns off after the five-minute cycle. About the size of hand soap dispenser, the device sets up unobtrusively on a nightstand or desk. Lights are rated for 8,000 hours.
