Zagg UV phone sanitiser: Five minutes is all it takes to kill 99.9% of bacteria

For €50 you can have a germ-free phone without having to use a drop of alcohol gel


We are all more conscious of hygiene these days. Sales of hand sanitiser and soap are through the roof. We’ve cleared the aisles of antibacterial wipes and dilligently scrub everything we come into contact with, just in case there are germs lurking. But what about your phone? It goes more places with you than you might remember (including, let’s be honest, the bathroom) and as such, it deserves a little consideration from time to time. The Zagg UV phone sanitiser will clean up your phone, busting the germs you cannot see, without a drop of alcohol gel going near your phone. Five minutes in the device is enough to kill 99.99 per cent of bacteria, according to Zagg. Considering a 2018 study from scientists at the University of Arizona found the average smartphone carries 10 times more bacteria than most toilet seats, it might be something to consider.
