Phone Soap XL: The World’s First Tablet UV Sanitizer and Universal Charger
Using 4 powerful UV-C bulbs, the PhoneSoap XL encompasses your tablet in germicidal light. In just 5 minutes, your device will be completely sanitized.
We designed the unit with sleek, modern edges so that it can fit nicely in any location: A bookshelf, a kitchen counter, a bedside table, etc.
Additionally, you can make your sanitizing process part of your charging routine by using the built-in USB port.
Best of all, whatever fits inside can be safely sanitized. Use it to sanitize your keys, your mouse, your Apple Watch. If it fits, it cleans!
Tablets are filthy. We use our electronics everywhere we go. Whether we like to admit it or not, we use our tablets while cooking, shopping, using public transportation, and of course, using the bathroom.
All the bacteria we touch is transferred to our tablet. Since tablets are warm and stored in dark places like bags and purses, the bacteria breeds and multiplies. We have no doubt that technology a contributor to the spread of sickness and disease.
There are three UV light wavelength categories: UV-A, UV-B and UV-C. The UV-C wavelength is the germicidal wavelength. UV-C utilizes short-wavelength ultraviolet radiation, which effectively destroys nucleic acids and breaks apart germ DNA. With their DNA broken, germs cannot function or reproduce, and the organism dies.
Watch the Discovery Channel test PhoneSoap and the effectiveness of our UV lights.
A few years ago we learned that cell phones were home to 18x more bacteria than a public restroom. We wanted to create a product to address this problem. The original PhoneSoap uses UV-C light to sanitize cell phones and other small devices. This unit has had wild success. PhoneSoap is shipped around the world and is used in more than 40,000 homes in the US. We have been featured on media outlets across the globe, including appearances on The Discovery Channel, The Today Show, The View, The Doctors and many more. We were also featured on Shark Tank where we landed a deal with Lori Grenier. With Lor's help, we have had great success on QVC and other outlets.
Though our customers love this product, their number one request is a larger version. We are happy to present the PhoneSoap XL.

Risks and challenges
The challenges of this project are similar to all manufacturing projects, such as component quality and restraints, but we have mitigated our risk by utilizing a trusted partner for manufacturing. This product is already in the hands of our current manufacturers to finalize and produce in mass. While it is unlikely that we will experience delays, quality and safety are our top priorities with all our products, and we will not ship until the unit meets our standards.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
