LG Innotek developed and announced on November 29, 2017, the world's first device with a maximum output of 200mW and a short wavelength UV-C LED that sterilizes bacteria was born.
This time, we created a toothbrush sanitization cap using a 2mW version, a small power-saving version of the UV-C LED UV device.
❶ Sanitize brush with UV-C LED with 99.9% sterilization power
日常 Compact cap-type sterilizer for daily use and outings
❸ Rechargeable and can be used without stress
マ グ ネ ッ ト A magnet is embedded in the back of the main unit, allowing pasting
Toothbrushes used every day are exposed to an environment where bacteria can easily propagate.
It is said that the fungus that parasitizes the toothbrush is several times the beef and seafood fungi in a warm summer environment .
Even though it is disposable, it's scary to think that it is put in the mouth every day with a toothbrush with a bacterium.
UV-C LED emits ultraviolet rays with a short wavelength of 200 to 280 nm suitable for sterilization. The UV-C LED has the ability to destroy bacterial DNA. The rechargeable toothbrush sanitizer cap achieved 99.9% sanitization in the product state .
Ultraviolet rays are used for water, air, surface disinfection, medical treatment, biotechnology, curing, etc., because they have the property of destroying bacteria and viruses depending on the wavelength and reacting scientifically with special substances. Among these ultraviolet rays, UV-C is an area where deep UV rays with a short wavelength of 200 to 280 nm are said to be suitable for sterilization. [Important] Products that are known as UV products in conventional sterilizers may have a long wavelength and low sterilization ability.
There have been various products using ultraviolet rays in the past. Conventional products were generally commercialized using UV lamps, but it took a few minutes for the residual heat to be required and the effect to begin to appear, the lamp life was short, and mercury included, adversely affecting the environment, etc. There was a problem. (Manufacturing and importing of mercury-containing devices will be subject to regulations from 2020.) * Momentary momentarily when the switch is turned on with the advent of UV-C LED that generates ultraviolet rays using the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry LED technology The sterilization is started and the life span is 10,000 to 50,000 hours. It does not contain mercury and can be used with confidence.
* Comparison with our conventional products The UV-C LED used in this toothbrush sanitization cap uses a device from Korea LG Innotek. There are various types of LEDs that emit ultraviolet rays, but it is important that the devices are reliable and have established quality and performance.
Instead of a toothbrush case that covers the entire toothbrush, a brush cap type that accommodates only the brush part is adopted. It is possible to use it with a built-in magnet and non-slip pad on the back for daily use such as a washbasin and a bathroom. It is a simple operation that opens the cover with one push.
Built-in rechargeable battery can be used anywhere. Charging is via USB connection. Use the PC's USB port or USB-AC adapter. * USB-AC adapter is not included. It can be used at home, as well as at school and office, assuming tooth brushing after lunch.
RoHS is a global standard that limits the use of certain hazardous substances and proves that they do not affect people or the environment. This product also meets the standards. Not only can it be used with peace of mind, but it is also made of earth-friendly materials when it is discarded.
UV-C LED becomes light. By providing a mirror surface inside, UV rays are reflected and sterilization is performed efficiently to every corner of the brush.
Q: How effective is it?
A: About 99.9% sterilization result after 3 minutes projection has been proved by experiments.
* The disinfection effect varies depending on the brush bacteria and usage environment.
Q: Is there a difference between UV sterilizer and UV-C sterilizer?
A: Products that are said to be UV sterilizers are in a state where there is no indication of which wavelength of ultraviolet light. It is necessary to clarify the wavelength suitable for sterilization.This product claims to have a wavelength suitable for short wave sterilization with UV-C.
Q: Is there a limit on the size of the toothbrush?
A: For general toothbrushes, please refer to the internal dimensions described above.
Q: How long is the battery life?
A: The current rechargeable battery is roughly estimated to be charged 300 to 500 times.
It varies greatly depending on actual usage.
Q: Can it be used by children?
A: There is nothing particularly dangerous, and UV-C does not significantly affect the human body.
However, please do not look directly at the LED section.
Q: Is it okay to hit my eyes or hands directly on the LED issuing department?
A: Generally, UV-C LEDs can be harmful if you look directly at them.
However, the UV-C LED used in this product has an output that does not affect the human body.
There is no problem with direct contact with the human body, but avoid looking directly at a close distance for a long time.
Q: Do you have PL insurance?
A: You have already joined.
Q: Is it waterproof?
A: There is no problem for normal use of water drops on the brush, but it is not waterproof, so do not drop it in water or put it on it.
