I remembered this product that I unbox a really long time ago. I was thinking about the hands: you're washing the hands, you're singing, happy birthday and the whole thing, because you're trying to be socially responsible. But then you reach into your pocket and you grip your filthy phone over and over again and you can't, possibly wash your hands every single time. You touch your phone. You might touch this thing: 20, 30, 40 times a day, maybe more, if you're an addict. Like many people in this office right here, so what good is it? You see the problem there I'm, not saying you shouldn't, wash your hands. You got to wash your hand, it's 2020 it's very important I'm. Just saying these things are a cesspool they're there, they're gross. It got me thinking remembering this product from unbox therapy. History called phone soap, which is this phone cleaner charger thing that claims to kill 99.9 of bacteria as well as viruses. Now would be the time to take a look at their latest version of that product, it's kind of a topical matter, and so they came out with a new one. It'S called phone soap go clean and charge on the go. So this one. This is the new version let's just get into it and check it out now it uses UV to kill the various germs and bacteria and things that are living on your phone and they've got all kinds of tests on their website.
Talking about how much bacteria and gross stuff that you can actually pull off your phone, if you were to test it, it is expensive, it's about a hundred bucks. But what price is your health worth? Maybe something like that I don't know. Actually I was reading about this because I was curious. I was curious about the effectiveness of UV germ killing and one of the reasons it's not used on on on people's hands is because it says it can be dangerous to your body, but in a device like this, it actually makes a lot of sense all right. So kill 99.9 of harmful bacteria on your smartphone with UVC light. This type of UV light can also kill certain viruses so I'm, not saying I'm, not saying that this is 100 percent guaranteed to sanitize whatever germs you throw at it, but it is better than nothing. I think we can all agree on that. So look at this a real rugged carrying case whoa, okay, well, that's a bit bigger than portable. I mean it's, not going in your pocket. You go to bed at night. You likely charge your device anyways. Why not give it a little UV bath at the same time, you wake up in the morning fresh battery fresh phone 99.99 cleaner than what, when you put it in okay, so here's the kit now keep in mind. Like I said I have experience with this product. I looked at the old version, but this is new and improved.
You lock your phone and place it in the sanitizing Bay plug your phone's charging cable into the USB. If you want to charge it while it's cleaning, okay and then first I mean for some reason, there's a battery in here it's got a 6500 milliamp hour battery capacity. I suppose it's just yeah, I mean it just makes your life a bit easier. Doesn'T always have to be plugged into the wall for travel purposes. I suppose that's that's got to be the appeal of it anyways. These are the important components on the inside of the package. Those are your UV bulbs, that's what's, going to kill all the germs and whatnot, and the LED illuminators on the top are gon na indicate the battery life of the overall unit. So I don't need to plug it in right now, in fact, to start the UV process it's a 10 minute cycle, I notice on the website they're saying yeah, you travel with it that's what the case is for you put it in the luggage. So this is a thing well like this. Is people are concerned about this and, like I said, you've got the clean hands. You want a clean phone look at this kills cold and flu viruses. Ah they did some testing. The testing that was conducted looked at some various strains, including e.coli, Salmonella, staph, MRSA h1n1 flu and a common cold amongst others. So, okay, I mean that's serious stuff right there.
The device itself takes 4.5 hours to charge to a hundred percent for its 6500 milliamp hour battery. They say it will disinfect a phone 45 times or recharge a phone two to four times, so the battery inside of the unit is either going to be used to operate the UV bulbs or to charge your phone or both consecutively, so that's kind of cool. Alright. On the back of the device, we have a USB output, USB type, a port, USB type c input or output. That is sick, I'm. Happy about that. That means that you could charge this unit with the same cable and power, brick that you would already use for. Your smartphone so that's pretty cool and then pop the power portion off and then put that into the phone to charge from here. So you don't need to even carry this cable with you. If you have a type c connector on your phone and a power, brick that goes with it, let's get a type c cable for one, and so we can plug that into the inputoutput seaport and then into our phone. And you see the LED indicator. Pops up – and you can see up here – we're charging on the s20 ultra okay. Now the way they imagine you doing. This is you're about to go to bed. You are charging you pop the device in with the screen off you close it down it. Seals on the edge and you hit the button, the lightning bolt you got – ta push it harder: okay, we're on now I'm feeling better than I felt with my phone prior to this I'm gon na pull that thing out and at least know I'm at zero.
At least know that I've killed 99.99, you can check their own documentation to see how effective they say that it is, and I recommend doing some research on UVC type of light and what it can do to some of the harmful things that are out there. In the world because, like I said, they've got a whole section for documentation, so after 10 minutes inside the phone, so the blue light will go off and that's the recommended exposure to the UV light, but otherwise you can hit this end. The cycle, if you need to get access to your phone quickly, you could tap that and that'll turn the UV lights off and then you can pop it open. You can pop your phone out and just like that, I know it's crazy, you're thinking, it's just light. How does it all work, it's, it's science? Will its science? Do you understand yeah it's? Actually, one of the few solutions you have for this device and I'll tell you why the screens on modern smartphones are oleophobic coated, they're meant to resist fingerprints and residue, and so the types of cleaners that you can actually use on these devices is fairly limited in Its ability to disinfect at least without potentially ruining some of those coatings or finishes all right, quick updates, oh yeah phone soap. This is kind of like a generic sterilizer it's about half the price of that one. So I just thought I don't know, since it showed up after having shot that it was worth just a quick analysis.
This one also claims to be an aromatherapy diffuser. So if you're, a guy like Kirk it's, two for one okay, so it's similar yet different, it doesn't feel quite as robust as the other one. I purchased this on amazon.ca for I think 47 dollars immediately. I can see that the UV bulbs are smaller. It might not be as potent there's a USB port on the inside of it, and the aroma drops go in there if you're doing the aromatherapy thing and then you just plug in microUSB to the back, so it's gon na function in the same fashion. You got your cables inside a couple, different options here: a two micro USB and then a multi cable that's, a nice little touch to see on there. Oh they're just separate cables. But for me this one wins because it has the battery built in 7000, milliamp hour battery and it's a same size a bit heavier, but anyway it's twice the price same concept. This one has the bigger UV lights. This one has the smaller UV lights. This one is hitting your device from the top and bottom. So if your phone's in there like that it's getting hit like that, this one, on the other hand, is hitting the front and back of your phone, which I kind of feel like it's, maybe better. This aromatherapy, when the thing is closed, it's sort of sealed so it's not really aromatherapy for you, it's aromatherapy, for your phone, so your phone is gon na come out smelling fresh.
I guess that's, all right! So whatever, if you're on a budget UV UV sea, is what it's called these guys have been around a little bit longer, they have more models available to you, which are gon na pay a premium. For me, the advantage of the type C and the built in battery and the bigger UV bulbs I'm thinking this is the go to, but I understand if you won't, pay a half price, either way the functionality it's the same proposal, your hands, they're disgusting, they're, filthy. So you wash them but all day, long in between washes you're, slapping and smacking. This thing all right, your mitts are all over it. So what good is this hand washing with the dirty phone with the disgusting phone? Obviously the hand washing is still good it's better than not doing anything at all but I'm, just saying you throw the phone in here and you disinfect it to go along with the clean hands in 2020. You just got ta be aware, this kind of stuff that's all I'm, trying to say when the original one hit the channel. I was thinking to myself, who's gon na really get this thing what's. The whole story here are people really gon na buy this, and then here we are in 2020, all the things happening in the world and I'm saying man, this gon na be a hot product right now, it's amazing.
