According to the company, the pandemic outbreak forced us to stay indoors to combat the deadly threat of coronavirus. However, it was next to impossible for mankind to stay indoors due to social and business obligations. The insecurity underpinned the significance of hygiene and cleanliness eventually making extensive use of sanitizers, peeling off our skin. Apart from this, it is impractical to sanitize all surfaces with a liquid sanitizer, in such a scenario it is imperative to have a solution that can be a useful alternative against the deadly coronavirus.
In this scenario, Havells conducted extensive research for months on the use of UV-C light for disinfecting almost anything and everything while prioritizing the safe usage of UV-C light as exposure to this light can be dangerous for humans. UV-C light usage is scientifically proven to be able to effectively kill SARS-CoV-2 or other coronaviruses in liquids, on surfaces, or in the air.
The handheld device has a 2W UVA+UVC ultraviolet germicidal lamp. When turned on, it emits energy-rich UVC light (270 nm-280 nm) that is used to disinfect the surface and the UVA light (390 nm-410 nm) is used for identification purposes. The compact and portable design makes it handy and allows for easy carrying and disinfection, anytime anywhere.
The body is made of high-quality fireproof ABS, which makes the product durable for a longer period. It is equipped with a built-in gravity sensor that enables safer operation. It can disinfect in 90 seconds at a 3cm distance from the surface.
The sterilizer can be easily charged using any smartphone charger with a MicroUSB charging port. It has a bright white LED mounted on top which can be used as a flashlight to see the surface with dull or no illumination. Being equipped with UVC+UVA special LEDs makes it extremely useful to destroy 99.99 percent of germs, viruses or bacteria on surfaces exposed by this light.
