PROVO, Utah, March 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cell phones have become our constant companions, and as a result, they are exposed to many bacteria and viruses. When we open a door, shake hands, use an ATM or dozens of other daily tasks, our hands come in contact with germs, and numerous studies have shown that a significant number of bacteria, such as the flu virus, staph, strep, E. coli, and salmonella, are transferred from our hands to our cell phones every time we pick them up.

Germs thrive in warm places, and warm cell phone batteries and our pockets provide the perfect breeding environment for them to grow. A 2011 University of London study found that 80% of cell phones tested had more than 18 times as much harmful bacterium than was found on the handle in a public restroom, and one in six phones carried the fecal bacteria E. coli. Since phones are frequently used near our mouths and noses, the risk of infection is serious.

The new PhoneSoap Charger is the most effective way to kill bacteria growing on cell phones. It does not use any sprays, liquids or chemicals that could potentially damage a phone. Instead it uses safe, clean UV-C light to sanitize and clean phones--the same technology that hospitals and laboratories use to disinfect their equipment. UV-C wavelength ultraviolet light is deadly to microorganisms, and the PhoneSoap Charger attacks germs at the molecular level, effectively killing 99.99% of bacteria and viruses in just five minutes.

Just released in late 2013, the PhoneSoap Charger can accommodate virtually every brand and model of smart phone and cell phone on the market. It plugs into a standard wall outlet and comes equipped with a USB port so phones can be charged while they are being disinfected.

The PhoneSoap Charger retails for $59.95 and is available on the PhoneSoap website and various other retail outlets.
