Wherever you go, your phone goes with you.

Think about it – from your bedroom to the office to the gym and everywhere else in between. When you take your phone’s close proximity to your ears, nose, and mouth, and throw in the bacteria-loving warmth of those places, the results can be harmful to your health. Did you know your phone could be home to the faecal bacteria, E. Coli? Urgh!


Thankfully, technology is here to save the day! The latest innovation in TechLand encourages health via cleaner, more hygienic smartphones. And no, it doesn’t require a bucket of water and lye soap.

The fact that there are now two lightsabers in your charger probably doesn’t hurt.

The PhoneSoap Charger is a dual-function device that not only sanitises your phone, but charges its battery at the same time, without the use of chemicals, liquids, or heat.

How does the 6” x 3.74” (yes, it fits all smartphones within those dimensions!) get rid of 99.9% of the germs on your phone? The secret is magic in the two UV-C lamps in the PhoneSoap Charger which produce a very specific wavelength of light designed to impair the DNA of bacteria and viruses. Once the DNA is impaired, the cells die and can no longer cause disease and infections. Better yet, PhoneSoap Charger kills “Super Bugs” that have developed resistance to previously-effective chemicals and antibiotics.

Ooh, sleek.

PhoneSoap Charger only takes a breezy 4 minutes to completely sanitise your phone, and a blue indicator on the front brightly indicates when the sanitising is complete. Let there be light indeed!

Remove the compartment to replace the Micro USB with a cable of your choice.

PhoneSoap Charger ships with a Micro USB cable, which most phones use to charge. If your phone uses a different connector, fret not, because PhoneSoap Charger has a compartment with a standard USB port for you to plug in the cable that comes with your device. Just open up the cover and replace the cable inside. This essentially means that whatever fits in the PhoneSoap Charger sanitising space can also get cleaned.

You’ll never miss another somewhat-vaguely-amusing Facebook status update again!

Many of us also use our phones as alarm clocks to wake us up when needed. PhoneSoap Charger allows for that too. Nifty acoustic outlets ensure that your phone’s alarm doesn’t get muffled inside the sanitising compartment. So go ahead and clean your phone overnight because you’ll still be able to hear those Tweets and messages.

PhoneSoap Charger is now available for USD$60 (SGD$77) in black or white. Pick one up for your best germophobe buddy, or for friends who use their phones in the loo.

Bonus: They also make PhoneSoap Polish, which protects your smartphone screen from smudges. Hello smoother Fruit Ninja, goodbye glitch-causing greaseprints!
