- Won’t clean off smudges, dirt
- Awkward angular shape
PhoneSoap xl is a new product that claims to be able to disinfect and sanitize mobile phones by using advanced microfiber technology. We were sent one to try out for ourselves and after we tested it out, we’re excited to share our result with you.
The PhoneSoap XL costs twice as much as the PhoneSoap 3 on Amazon, making it a heftier investment for potential purchasers. What matters most is whether you want to clean a physically greater range of objects in addition to your smartphone.
Do you really need to clean something like a tablet, though, in that case? The majority of individuals use their tablets far less frequently than they do their smartphones, and they frequently do so at home rather than practically everywhere.
You might begin to consider more carefully what you’ll use this for as the price reaches triple digits and how important those extra abilities truly are in the big picture.
PhoneSoap XL Review: Design
- Awkward design
- Can accommodate the largest phone and tablet
- Lightweight and portable
The PhoneSoap 3 is a modestly sized phone accessory from the firm, with just enough room to fit even larger phones—but not much more. It resembles a mobile tanning bed. The PhoneSoap XL is a completely unique creature. It’s the equivalent of a walk-in closet for your smartphones, tablets, and other small devices that you want to clean, measuring 12.4 by 9.75 by 3 inches (HWD). On a desk, for example, it looks quite odd, but you could probably fit it inside a deep bookcase without it taking up too much room.
The upright, angular structure features a door at one end via which you can enter the spacious interior. You are free to insert whatever would fit, including a tablet (big or little), one or more cellphones, your wallet, your keys, your headphones, your baby bottle, and seemingly anything else you can think of.
The four lights inside flood your gadgets with ultraviolet rays that destroy germs and damage DNA, rendering microorganisms inert and dead. After the 15-minute cycle is complete, the light goes off and you may feel secure about the items inside.
With dimensions of 12.4 by 9.75 by 3, it resembles a walk-in closet for your cellphones, tablets, and other small electronics that you want to disinfect.
However, you don’t have to disconnect your phone or tablet when using the PhoneSoap XL. A small hole in the back can be used to insert a charging wire, and there is even an exterior standard USB port for doing so. Your smart device can then just draw power from the PhoneSoap XL’s AC adapter in this manner.
PhoneSoap XL Review: Setup Process
- Easy to set up
- Fully plug-and-play
There is nothing at all to set up. Fully plug-and-play, the PhoneSoap XL. All you need to do is plug in one end of the AC adapter cord to the wall and you’re ready to go. Every moment the door is closed, the device automatically starts its cycle and ends roughly 15 minutes later. Simply pull the plug if you don’t want it to turn on at all because there is no power button or switch.
PhoneSoap XL Review: Cleaning Ability
- Tested and trusted
- Kills 99.9% bacterial
- Creates a unique smell after cleaning
Sadly, it’s impossible to tell by looking whether the PhoneSoap XL is actually working. If you’re really curious, you can either watch the Discovery Channel test they did with an earlier version of the standard-sized PhoneSoap, which showed a bacteria-strewn cocktail sprayed on two phones, or you can grab some Petri dishes and run your own makeshift lab in a safe setting to see if bacteria grow.
Period the other phone was infested, the sample from the phone that had been in the PhoneSoap for a while revealed no bacterial development. The PhoneSoap XL creates a peculiar smell that isn’t very irritating but is rather somewhat comforting after cleaning your items in UV light.
You are obviously taking a leap of faith in the product’s ability to kill the 99.9% of common germs that the manufacturer claims it will. However, there is an intriguing sign that will awaken a different sense: smell. The PhoneSoap XL creates a peculiar smell that isn’t very irritating but is rather somewhat comforting after bathing your items in UV light. It either tells you or at least leads you to believe, that bacteria and germs were completely eliminated during that session.
PhoneSoap XL vs. PhoneSoap 3
The physical dimensions and the types of objects each PhoneSoap 3 and PhoneSoap XL can hold are where the greatest distinctions between them lie, in addition to pricing. The PhoneSoap 3 can clean devices other than smartphones, although it can only clean small objects, such as earbuds or a smartwatch. But that makes sense because you’ll also use those tools to get about in the actual world.
The PhoneSoap XL, which is considerably bigger, can handle tablets as well as objects like baby bottles, TV remote controls, and almost anything else. The PhoneSoap 3 can handle much less because of its small size, making it more of an all-purpose sanitizer.
If you’re serious about washing out your phone and other small, portable gadgets, the PhoneSoap 3 will undoubtedly do the trick. However, real prudes might see the benefit in something larger that will hold almost anything you can throw at it. That would be the PhoneSoap XL.
A bigger, more adaptable ultraviolet-light sanitizer would be useful for parents of young children or anyone who works in a setting that is highly hygienic. However, the PhoneSoap XL seems excessive just in terms of tech sanitization. A tablet doesn’t seem like something that has to be cleaned frequently unless you’re carrying it around everywhere, even though it is twice as expensive as the PhoneSoap 3 and significantly larger.
