Created to "destroy 99.9 percent of germs in three minutes" on the surfaces of phones and other small devices, this useful piece of tech is joining the likes of the PhoneSoap and the Oblio Wireless Charger and UV Cleaner in keeping all of our gadgets sanitized.

The site outlines that the average person touches their phone more than 2,000 times a day, causing tons of germs to accumulate on the device's surface.

To keep what is arguably our most frequently used device safe and clean, the Casetify UV Sanitizer uses six built-in UV lamps to eradicate these germs. As outlined by Oblio, UV light is known to kill "up to 99.9 percent of proliferating bacterias most commonly identified on smartphones’ displays."

To sweeten the deal even further, the gadget also charges your phone wirelessly (if the device is compatible with wireless charging) while it cleans.

Shoppers may be pleased to know that they will also be helping others through this purchase, as Castify has outlined that 100 percent of proceeds will be going to GlobalGiving's Coronavirus Relief Fund.

"We're helping to send medical responders, essential supplies, and food to communities in need," the site explains. "Let's work together to make an impact."

The site made a point to specify that this device "is not proven to kill coronavirus," but has been tested to kill 99.9 percent of germs found on the phone's surface.
