Q & A

Can this unit be used on your hands?
No. The Pocket Purifier is strictly for use on hard surfaces and objects and is not intended or safe to use on your skin or clothes.  Also, you should never expose your eyes to the UV-C light. 

How long will the bulb last?
The bulb in the Pocket Purifier is equipped to last 9,000 hours. Because the UV-C light only needs to scan a hard surface or object for 15-30 seconds, you can expect this unit to have a very long shelf life.  However, if you need to replace the 4 Watt Germicidal Ultraviolet bulb, you can find replacements bulbs here.

How does the Pocket Purifier actually work?
The UV-C light penetrates the membranes of viruses, bacteria, mold, and dust mites—attacking their DNA—terminating them and their ability to spread. The UV-C light is strong enough to kill 99.9% of all germs and bacteria.  This is the same UV-C technology used in hospitals, food processing facilities, water treatment, and HVAC systems to eliminate biological contaminants and germs.

How do I know if it’s working?
Most contaminants are microscopic, so you won’t be visibly able see the effects of the UV-C light on hard surfaces--as is the case when you spray household cleaners in your home.  However, because of the powerful strength of UV-C light, it can kill and destroy 99.9% of all organisms, germs and bacteria.  In many cases, consumers who regularly wash their hands and use Pocket Purifier to disinfect and sanitize their home have experienced less cold and flu-like symptoms.

How close to the surface does the Pocket Purifier need to be?
Simply hold the Pocket Purifier face down so the UV-C light is about one inch away from the desired surface, counter top, or computer keyboard.  Slowly scan the desired surface for approximately 15 to 30 seconds, and it will instantly sanitize and eliminate any germs or super bugs.

How it Works

Watch the short video of how it works

Desktops have almost 21,000 germs per square inch and cell phones have more than 25,000 per square inch (compared to only 49 per square inch on toilet seats). Pocket Purifier™ has a built-in germicidal UV-C light bulb that deactivates the DNA of bacteria, viruses and other pathogens, destroying their ability to multiply.

UV-C light can be used to eliminate any biological contaminant. Different organisms require varying intensities of UV-C light to sterilize, but any biological microorganism can be eliminated with UV-C, including SARs and MRSA (staph). UV-C light is particularly effective on medicinally resistant microorganisms, because mutations that increase drug resistance do not make the microorganism more resistant to UV-C sterilization.

“Being an allergy sufferer, I already use the Healthy CFLs in a few places in my house, but want to make sure EVERY room has one. Not only are they energy efficient (HUGE factor for me being a green mom) but they also improve the quality of the air inside my home! I am super excited to learn about the Healthy Night Lights - I am definitely going to buy some!!”
- Marci, Michigan

“Saw them on my wandering around the store. Attraction was to the fact that they clear the air.  I repair computers for a living, some of which come from smoke filled houses, and my wife and son have allergies to the odors and lingering smoke.  I noticed a nice change in the air quality, just after about 2 hours.  We now are using them in all the table lamps in the living room (3) the master bedroom (2) and my office (3).”  
- Steve, Oklahoma

“I have been slowly converting my light bulbs over to your fantastic air purifying bulb... I appreciate this product to the fullest. I have a three year old with severe asthma and anything that "triggers" his asthma attacks truly makes my job as a loving, concerned mother easier!”
- Susan, Tennessee

And, after using the light on our stuffed animals, legos, and other porous toys that were hard to adequately wipe off with antibacterial wipes, the virus did not spread further in our house.  We had two people with Rotavirus before this light came in!  And no one else got it!!!  Our baby got to be born into a healthy home!  Thank you Purely Products!
