@pmarin@redjeep0@werehatrack I got one of the Samsung ones when it was on sale a few years back, thinking it’d be useful if there was another extended power outage. Haven’t needed it since. I just take it out of the drawer and check to see if it needs charging periodically.
Not complaining, I’d rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it.
So, ignoring the UV thing and lack of powerbank, which is either a plus or minus depending…, is this primarily a “woman’s style” accessory? Not that there’s anything wrong with that, and I carry a “man-purse” most of the time (sized to fit an iPad), so no hesitancy to carry things that might in the past have been non-‘Traditional.’ But still I don’t know how/where I would use this.
BTW from the pictures this does have the “real” UV “tube” bulb thing that is used in most of the sanitizers available now. Some claim “UV LED” and that seems highly suspicious as it seems some just put out bluish light. Apparently there are real UV-C LEDs but from various stories on the internetz (and if it’s on the netz it must be true!) say that “real” UV-C LEDs are expensive and not in bottom-end consumer goods.
Yes, primarily it’s carried by a woman or maybe even a young girl who doesn’t want to carry around everything but the kitchen sink like so many other woman tend to do.
When I was younger I used to always think i’d do great on the game show “Let’s Make A Deal”! …everything but the kitchen sink, that was definitely what was in my purse! 🍽.
@Lynnerizer That’s funny because for a while my “man-purse” was also that way. I remember once someone needed a really bright little flashlight to find something that dropped inside the checkout counter of a store, and I said, here, I got one, and I had one of the bright little AAA flashlights that really helped. Also usually have a small but good folding knife, handy for eating cheese or apples. (Dentist says I shouldn’t bite into apples anymore). [Also don’t fly anymore so no worry about TSA taking away my 2" pocket knife like they wanted to one time] So yeah the all-purpose bag of useful S$&*t is handy, but harder to pull of as a man, in the old tradition anyway. I think at this point a lot more people are like “go with what works for ya!”
@Lynnerizer@pmarin I’ve seen pretty much everything on your list being carried by one or another of my female companions at one time or another, except for the curling stone. Now, that did/would impress me.
@Lynnerizer@pmarin, not trying to be too picky, but it seems like you would call ur knife a ‘man purse knife’, or an ‘all-purpose bag knife’, since you Are more, or less stating that you don’t stick it [no pun was intended] in ur pocket as most all guys do; that’s why they call them a ‘pocket knife’! I know now, since this comment got a bit too long, I shoulda just asked why you called your blade a pocket knife, ergo, My Bad!!
And no amount of pocket-sized UV-C lamp action is going to remove grime; that’s where you need fluids with surfactants, dispersants, and/or detergents. And usually some elbow grease or its mechanical equivalent.
It would be far more accurate if it said “It won’t remove grime, but it will kill germs on the surface of it so that the dirt is less of a hazard, for a while, until new bacteria grow where the debris from the old bacteria awaits as nutrients.”
