Frequently Asked Questions
Did you know mobile devices are one of the dirtiest items we own?
How dirty is my mobile device?
The average person’s mobile device carries 25,000 bacteria per square inch. That’s dirtier than a toilet seat, your pet’s food dish, and the kitchen counter!
Is this product effective against bacteria and viruses?
Laboratory studies have shown* that UV light technology kills bacteria and viruses — including influenza, strains of E. Coli, staph, and strep (just to name a few).
What kind of bacteria is on my mobile device?
While not all bacteria is bad, the types of bacteria that could potentially lurk on your device are strains of E. Coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Influenza, Clostridium difficile, and Streptococcus, which could cause disease and serious illness.
How does UV sterilization work?
Our product uses short wavelength ultraviolet (UV-C) light. This destroys nucleic acids in DNA, which inactivates microorganisms. UV–C does not significantly penetrate into human skin, making it both a safe and ideal method to sterilize mobile device.
How often should I clean my mobile device?
It’s important to clean your mobile device on a regular basis to prevent the spread of germs and other bacteria. Experts advise cleaning your mobile device at least once every few days. Self-cleaning methods like dunking your mobile device in hot water or spraying it with rubbing alcohol run the risk of damaging your device permanently. The CHRGR UV Phone Sanitizer makes cleaning your cell phone simple and stress-free with its 2-in-1 functions to sanitize and charge.
