PhoneSoap 3 UV Smartphone Sanitiser & Universal Charger | $78.95
Cruising round the world, going from continent to continent and, potentially, from virus to virus. How many of you wash your hands before/after picking up your smartphone? Hmm…nope, we see no hands raised. Your phone is a walking, talking hotbed of germs and general gross-ness. When you’re far from shore in tropical climes, that’s a risk you just don’t want to take.
PhoneSoap’s revolutionary bacteria-zapping technology was featured on ABC’s Shark Tank, and given a thorough testing which proved effective on the Discovery Channel.

Clever tech!

The LARQ Self-Cleaning Water Bottle | £73.00
We’re dodging single use plastic like our lives depend on it and our eco-conscience angel is becoming an ever louder voice in our heads. If, like many, you’ve adopted a reusable water bottle you’ll know that along with the earth-saving benefit comes a less earth-saving washing-up routine.
The LARQ self-cleaning water bottle uses a super-clever UV-C LED light to not only clean and purify the water inside your bottle, but also clean the bottle itself. It’s non-toxic, mercury free and eliminates odour and bacteria.
