@CatsAreGods@ELJAY They are trying to figure what they can “Cell” it for, which is apparently way too much, vs what it actually “Cost” them, which is probably very small because they are probably leftovers found in a warehouse so it’s either sell them here or e-recycle them, or dump unsafely offshore as happens to a lot of e-waste.
In other words they are “fishin” to “cell” these at a high price while knowing they “cost” nearly nuttin.
This is a UVB light. In terms of the coronavirus, this is a placebo. Effective disinfectant lights use UVC. None of the devices are well-regulated, so look to see if there has been any testing before buying any UV sanitizer.

The ➜ UV-C Sanitizer multifunctional disinfecting box is an easy was to disinfect your phone, wallet, keys, airpods, or any other item small enough to fit in the box! Using ultraviolet rays, this box causes cell cost fission, destroying the molecular structure of DNA or RNA and causing the growing cell to die. Along with aromatherapy, this sanitizer provides up to 99% sterilization rate in just 5 minutes!
@snapster@stuckigs@Thumperchick Not 100% accurate, but UVC is the only one reported to be effective at killing COVID (which is realistically why anyone is even interested in this). UVB is also a more dangerous-to-humans form of UV Light.
The link to the Amazon comparison product is a different item, at least in terms of the physical box itself and its light source. The Amazon version was reviewed here:
tl;dr: over the two video series, the Amazon model is demonstrated to be a UVC product and the contact time of 15 minutes is in the realm of adequate for sanitization. From that review, though, this doesn’t look like it has nearly the same UVC output potential.
@willcollier Super unlikely. EEPROMs are usually packaged in glass filled plastic that not even real UV light can penetrate. Fortunately, they can be electrically erased pretty quickly - check the data sheet for instructions. If you still have some windowed-package EPROMs lying around, that haven’t hit their erase cycle limit, then this light is probably just too weak to erase them.
Again with the Covid junk that has not been needed. If eye did want to sanitize and my fat ass was to lazy physically clean items or devices. Than this might be a somewhat useful investment. Although eye question a cardboard box from Carrollton used; with placing a much bigger uv light inside it placed on a timer wouldn’t sanitize the mere particles of diseases. Which brings me to. Why not carry disinfecting wipes or aerosol spray? Not sanitizer alcohol wipes or disinfecting spray; that shit is not the same neither or what people want. Put either of those 2 items up at even a pre-covid normal price that meh patrons could determine if they would choose to buy or not. Eye for one would buy such items. Not some no name fucking brands either. Kirkland, Members Mark, AZBasic, Clorox, Lysol. Any of them damn it and I would buy. You keep tagging me on junk. Please stop!
@jrubin I just opened one. It is incredibly difficult until you know the trick. Natural instinct is to puss in on the tab on the side as you pull it open. This will keep it sealed tight. If you apply a slight outward pulling pressure to the tab as you lift, it comes right open.
Total garbage. Can’t open the box without a pry bar and the alarm is obnoxiously loud and beeps continually until you press and HOLD the button for 2 seconds. WTAF? This thing belongs on the island of misfit toys, not out in the real world.
