- Which LiteZapp product do I use?
'Zapp It Your Way' ... It's completely up to you! We have 4 models; Viva UVC Wand, Pura UVC Thermo Water Bottle, Geo UVC Cube and the Voya UVC Travel Case. If you need to sanitise large surfaces and areas around your home, we recommend the Viva. For disinfecting multiple items, such as toys and gadgets, we recommend the Voya. For concealed areas, we recommend the Geo. And the Pura self-cleaning bottle is for purifying and cleaning water from any water source.
- Does LiteZapp contain UVC and how does it work?
Utilising the power of the sun, our products sanitise surfaces and objects with UVC light at 270-280nm. This is part of the electromagnetic spectrum of light, which destroys living cells by damaging their DNA so that they cannot develop, grow or spread, stopping any nasties in their tracks. UVC has the shortest wavelength combined with the highest energy, making it extremely effectively at destroying germs and bacteria within seconds. This is a process of ultraviolet radiation. The UVC in our products is delivered through UVC chips which are integrated within all LiteZapp products. UVC light is also invisible to the human eye, and it is a hazard, so as well as UVC, we incorporate 'purple' LED chips into our products to show that they are switched on and in use. If you see purple light being emitted you know that the product is switched on and working.
- Can LiteZapp UVC products be used on skin?
No and please do not ignore this. None of our products are suitable for use on any body parts or skin as they contains Ultraviolet Light Radiation. Do not use LiteZapp on any person(s) or animal(s). LiteZapp products should only be used on surfaces, areas and objects only.
- What is the effectiveness of LiteZapp products?
Our UVC products provide defence against germs and bacteria, including mould and dust mites - similar to bleach. What varies is the disinfection time. The products in our range have in-built timers for the sanitising cycle so the product operates a 'cycle of disinfection' e.g. the Pura bottle purifies the water in a 90 second cycle. Please refer to the product pages for more details on disinfection times and cycles.
