Hands-On With Samsung’s UV Sterilizer, a Compact Object Hygiene Solution for Any Environment

Have you ever wondered how hygienic those everyday items we interact with on a regular basis really are? Of course, washing your hands is an important way to keep everything you touch sterile, but in order to stay as hygienic as possible, sanitizing our most-used objects should also be a priority.

This is why Samsung Electronics has introduced a new UV Sterilizer,1 complete with wireless charging, that not only sanitizes your personal mobile devices, but other common-use items like toothbrushes and glasses, too. With a minimalistic design, this sterilizer allows you to keep your personal belongings hygienic anytime, anywhere.

Take, for example, a day in the office. Samsung Newsroom harnessed the UV Sterilizer for a full working day to learn more about which commonplace objects the sterilizer is capable of keeping sterile and safe.

  1. Mobile Phones

For a lot of us, our smartphones are a trusty companion from morning to night, meaning they venture outdoors with us on our morning and evening commutes. Given this exposure to the outside world, keeping our smartphones hygienic should be a top priority.

The UV Sterilizer is a great way to remove any unwanted bacteria that may have accumulated during the morning commute. With interior dimensions of 196 x 96 x 33mm, the UV Sterilizer can fit the majority of smartphones currently available in the market and is turned on with a simple press to the button on the right-hand side of the device. The sterilization process, indicated by the illumination of a green light, then begins and lasts for 10 minutes. Once it is complete, a beeping sound alerts the user and the green light will extinguish to clearly indicate that the process is over. This short completion time makes it ideal for easy sterilization multiple times throughout the day for enhanced peace of mind.

2. Wireless Headphones

Wireless headphones, like the Galaxy Buds Plus, are a fantastic companion throughout the day, whether you are inside the office or traveling outside of it. Given the long hours we often spend listening to music, it is imperative to keep these innovative in-ear devices free of dust and germs.

Not only can you keep your earbuds hygienic with the UV Sterilizer, but you can also separately sanitize their case thanks to the Sterilizer’s accommodating design. All you need to do is pop the desired component into the Sterilizer and press its button to get the sterilization process started.

3. Glasses

Those who regularly wear glasses know just how much of your face these helpful objects come into contact with, often for extended periods of time. Fortunately, these, too, can safely be sanitized in the UV Sterilizer.

The UV Sterilizer features dual UV lights which allows it to sterilize even thin objects, such as glasses. Its UV-C light kills up to 99% of harmful bacteria including E. coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans. With a simple fold and an insertion into the device, your glasses, too, can be removed of these germs in just ten minutes.

4. Toothbrushes

A great way to keep up your personal hygiene during the working day is to brush your teeth after a heavy meal or a coffee. As an essential tool for keeping teeth and gums clean, this item also needs to be kept as sterile as possible so that you can continue to make the most of it.

A key thing to remember about the UV Sterilizer is that it should not come into contact with water, so users should ensure that prior to sterilization, their toothbrush is bone dry in order to avoid damaging the device. Users can then enjoy a satisfactory teeth cleaning experience as the Sterilizer disinfects both the toothbrush head and its handle.

5. Pens

Be it for a meeting or to jot an important task down, pens and memo pads are recurring features of our working day. Given the constant displacement and use of these objects, sterilizing them regularly is a great way to also keep yourself sanitary.

Say you need to sterilize your pens but also have to run into a last-minute meeting; given that the UV Sterilizer will automatically turn itself off once the ten-minute sterilization process is complete, there is no need to worry about running back to your device when otherwise occupied.

Able to sanitize a whole range of everyday and office objects, the UV Sterilizer makes the perfect addition to your desk environment. For your own well-being as well as that of your most-used items, why not try adding the UV Sterilizer into your daily hygiene routine?
