There are two UV-C lamps that help clean your phone. You close your phone inside the compartment and it works its magic. The UV lights will be on for four to five minutes and then automatically shut off.

The device is 6 inches in length by 3.74 inches in width by 21.5mm in height. This allows you to clean the phone with its case on as well.

Anything that fits within those dimensions can be put inside to be sanitized, so you can even clean items like keys and earphones.

Here is a list of compatible phones.
