LivePure Handheld Portable UV Sanitizer
Seems the push is about eliminating bacteria. Regarding viruses (isn’t that what we are all really concerned about) it seems…vague.
Wondering if this is more snake-oil, than miracle tool.
Hi pipman, I agree, the LivePure UV Sanitizer seems like it’s not strong enough to kill viruses.
The unit is really small, and how long would it have to be held very close to the items needing sanitizing?
There’s so many inferior products (made in china) flooding the market now we need to be super careful.
I suggest googling “AMEREICAN ULTRAVIOLET” 800-288-9288 – it’s a good start to learn about UVC sanitizers.
American Ultraviolet (REAL UVC) was founded in 1960 – maintain a full staff of engineers dedicated to UV technology, and house their own sheet metal fabrication in their Indiana manufacturing facility.
USA products are what I look for.
Stay Safe 🙂
The website for American Ultraviolet is very interesting! And, I think their offices are about 4 miles from me! 😀
So, there are many caveats to sanitizing with UV (and in particular, deactivating Covid), I found this of interest. The wavelength is within the range of the LivePure device.
“UV light, specifically between 200-280nm[i] (UVC or the germicidal range), inactivates (aka, ‘kills’) at least two other coronaviruses that are near-relatives of the COVID-19 virus: 1) SARS-CoV-1[ii] and 2) MERS-CoV[iii] [iv] [v]. An important caveat is this inactivation has been demonstrated under controlled conditions in the laboratory. The effectiveness of UV light in practice depends on factors such the exposure time and the ability of the UV light to reach the viruses in water, air, and in the folds and crevices of materials and surfaces.”
BonnABC. Thank you for your thoughts. I will check out the company.
