      there's a review which talks about it not being able to accommodate a Note 10+ which I happen to have. Will find out when it arrives tmr and if it doesn't, just gonna return it.

      Designed to fit larger phones like iPhone 8+ and Google Pixel 3

      Quick google search suggest they're about 5.5 inch which is pretty small

      •  

        If it can fit an iPhone 8 Plus, compare your phone size on the right here

          Comparing sizes now? Keep it in your pants.

      Yes I have a note 20

      harmful ray?

      Have you ever heard about the biggest source of UV radiation that affects billions of humans everyday - the sun?

        UV-C is fortunately blocked by our atmosphere (we'd be a pool of mucous without it or some such stuffs). UV-C destroys DNA much, much faster than A & B.

    Or this one with wireless charger from Kmart for $2.5

    Hard to find sizing to know if larger phones will fit. Reviews suggest some may struggle to fit and if it doesn't fit (can't zip) then it won't even start up.

            @SamyKn: True, thanks for your reply. I won’t cancel my order as these would be awesome for cleaning out my earbuds from time to time.
            And $5 is hardly anything

            @SamyKn: but then you miss out on the coffee.

          Well, if it was only $50 and it is still sitting in a box, I would say that is a very cheap "lesson learned" compared to other purchases most OzBargainers made which are still sitting unopened.

          Trust me, I know :(

          If you bought that from JB-HIFI, try returning for refund/gift card saying that you do not want it.

          Buy another one now before the prices shoot up… dollar cost averaging lol

    Looks better then the kmart one, but do I need this? I have never sanitised my phone and I'm fine. Do I use this after I hand my phone to a mate to check something and when they give it back I grab the phone with tongs and put it in the UV Ray cleaner bag to clean it?
    Or is it good enough to just use it once a day at the end of the day after the germs have already been on the phone all day from when you put it down on a table at a Cafe, a desk at work, or dropped it on the ground… and you held it, put it to your face? only a fool would buy this and think it protects them lol

          If you refer to the Voting Guidelines, you'll notice that negging because a product isn't useful to you is not a valid use of a neg.
