Given the ubiquitous nature of smartphones these days, it might not be unsurprising to hear the University of Surrey found phones carry 18 times more germs than the average toilet handle -- which is where this phone cleaner comes in.
Currently in beta, UK-based startup AtomCleanse is designed to kill the bacteria on your mobile device and keep you healthy. Instead of relying on gels or other cleansing solutions, AtomCleanse uses UV light to get rid of germs transferred to your phone from your hands or dirty surfaces.
The phone cleaner device uses extremely efficient technology, eliminating 99.9% of germs in under 8 minutes. The same technology is used in hospitals to keep things sterile.
