DM Divider9PhoneSoap 2.0 by PhoneSoap

About PhoneSoap

After viewing a report on TV about bacteria and cell phones, PhoneSoap was made as a solution to eliminate the illness-inducing and germ ridden particles that silently lurk on each person’s cell phone. After a day spent using the restroom, interacting with others, and touching hundreds of surfaces, all while keeping one hand on your phone as we all are accustomed to, that phone ends up containing 18x more harmful bacteria than the door handle in a public restroom. PhoneSoap is the clever fix to this germy dilemma.

Product

PhoneSoap 2.0 is a universal Christmas gift, making this a must-have for every single person on your list this year, even for those who don’t have a cell phone (if there truly is anyone left in that category)! With its ability to thoroughly clean and disinfect not only cell phones, but any other object that will fit inside, it’s a bacteria busting powerhouse that everyone will love using.

PhoneSoap 2.0 cleans by using two UV-C lamps (UV light) that impairs the DNA of bacteria and viruses (even “superbugs”), which causes the cells to die, thus no longer being able to cause sickness. You simply open the lid, place your phone or object inside, close the lid, and in about 5 minutes, you’re guaranteed a cleaner, sanitized phone. Not only does the PhoneSoap 2.0 clean, but it charges too! You’re able to charge your phone at the same time it’s cleaning, making this a two-in-one design that every techie can appreciate.

Features You Will LOVE

  • Charging feature is universal
  • Fits any size phone, including the new iPhone 6s Plus
  • Acoustic outlets allow you to hear sounds from your phone even when the lid is closed
  • Sanitizing begins and ends automatically
  • A blue light will let you know when sanitizing is complete
  • 100% safe for phones
  • Available in white or black
Perfect For

Whether your family and friends are germaphobes or they just want to prevent sickness (especially in the winter months), the PhoneSoap 2.0 can help keep your loved ones from catching yet another cold, or even a more serious illness, simply by disinfecting the one object they are constantly holding. Stick one of these under the tree for everyone on your list, especially the hard to buy for ones!

USB Film Roll by Photojojo

 About Photojojo

In 2006, two friends who shared a love for photography and all that it entailed, sat down in a coffee shop in Brooklyn and made a list of all of the cool photo ideas they could think of.

Since then, founder, Amit, and a team of contributors have spent their days looking for all the coolest and most innovative photo ideas and gadgets ever. In their own words:

… we scour the Internet, rip pages out of magazines, ransack our friends’ closets, and go through dumpsters to find the very best photo tips, DIY projects, and gear.”

Product

Photojojo’s USB film rolls are like a blast from the past meets the convenience of the present. Hidden inside each one of these vintage film roll canisters is a USB that holds 4GB of data.
