AQUCS

A cell phone contains about 25,000 germs whose number is as 300 times as high as found in a toilet. How hard you keep your hands clean, if you neglect the hygiene of your cell phone, you will not be able to avoid the danger of infectious diseases. AQUCS simultaneously charges and sterilizes phone while you are sleeping. UV-C rays sterilize the phone inside the dome, however, the UV-C rays cannot go through the water, acrylic, and glass. Therefore, UV rays that are harmful to human bodies remain the inside the dome, while the rest of the rays that have gone through the dome and water serve as soft bedside lighting, being harmless and safe.
