UV Light Sanitizer – What is it?
Everything you need to know about Coral's UV Light Sanitizer is a 3 in 1 solution that will help you keep your tech gadgets free from germs. Uses UV to sterilize anything. Use this with your gadgets, keys, toys, baby stuff and much more.
I'm pretty sure your smartphone is full of germs. Let's be honest we all take our smartphones to the bathroom. We eat while we're on our smartphone. We take it with us everywhere. It's a germ magnet. The same can be said of our keys, wallet, cards, Bluetooth earpiece etc.
Coral's UV solution aims to rectify this little germ thing. It's a well-documented fact that UV does kill germs. Independent tests showed that it reduces the H1N1 flu virus but as much as 99.96%. It's also effective against E.Coli, Staph, Salmonella, all of which got blasted by over 99.99% after just 10 minutes.
The machine offers 4-modes of use:
- Sterilize and Dry:
- 10 minute UV sterilization before doing a 30 to 60-minute drying period.
- Dry Only:
- Dries only, from 30, 40, 50, 60 minutes.
- Sterilize only:
- UV light from 10, 15 or 20 minutes.
- 24-Hour Storage:
- Sterilizes & dry cycle, completes a short sterilize only cycle every 2-hours.
The container inside offers quite a bit room. Don't stack objects on top of each other this defeats the purpose of the UV light sanitizer. Simply place everything you want in the container, and select the desired cycle. Make use of the trays as it'll make your life easier. This product is centred around babies, but there are so many more applications that can be made out of it.
It's a great way for parents, schools, daycare centers, tech-heads to keep all your daily stuff sterilized. I can't really show you how the thing works inside because of the safety built around it to keep germs at bay, but I can definitely say that UV light sanitizer does work in reducing germ count.
On the back of the unit, there's an air filter. It's a HEPA filter, which ensures that the air is drawn in it clean. The filter is good for an average of 3 months, depending on the frequency you use it. 4 filters come with the device. On average, I would say this would last you a little over a year before needing to replace it.
You get 2 UV-C bulbs which are protected with a metal grid. Much like the bulbs you have at home, you'll eventually need to replace them. The life span of these varies on usage. You can expect 12 or more months of use.
I can't confirm how well it works, not without having an actual lab do germ testing, but I would surmise that it works as advertised. I'm sure the company wouldn't want to get Canadians coming back at them with claims.
You can find the UV light sanitizer at BabyEnRoute in Canada. It can be yours for $199.99 Canadian! I'll also include a link to the Amazon Canada & Amazon US page. You can also get it from the American side for $149.99 US.
The Coral UV light sanitizer can be a big benefit if you want to ensure that the sanitization of certain items is done properly. It's a great idea to do so when you have an infant. I'm also on the other end of things, where I grew up in the '80s. All these novel innovations we're not present, I'm still alive. I do believe that our bodies' defences can handle a lot, and maybe we shouldn't try to protect it from the outside world as much as we are trying to do so today.
