UV-257 / iPhone Accessory


UV-257. For your healthier life.
UV ray, at 257 nm, is most effective at killing bacteria. While smart phones take a big part of our lives, it is the most ideal place for bacteria to grow because of frequent usage and the heat it produces.

The LED engineered to produce UV-C ray will eliminate 99.9% of surface bacteria.

Press. Pull. Shine.
Extendable and contractible cable allows sterilization not only on the smart phone, but on other surfaces as well.

Extruded aluminum construction allows UV-257 to be lightweight while being durable.
