Did you know that your smartphone carries over 17,000 different types of bacteria? Well, French design brand, Lexon, knows and has provided a stylish solution to get rid of all those contaminants. Oblio is Lexon’s 10W wireless charger with a built-in UV sanitizer so you can easily charge your phone and have it cleaned as well. And not only is it functional, but it also has a very elegant design that’s sure to demand attention.
At first glance, Oblio doesn’t even exude any hint of being a charger. It looks more like a decorative vase that’s easy to blend into any type of decor. But slip your phone in and it shows its power as a Qi-certified wireless charging station. It will take about 3 hours for a device to charge fully and can be monitored by a very subtle LED indicator inside the rim of the charger.
Oblio also carries a UV-C anti-bacterial light that will kill 99.9% of germs on your smartphone’s surface in as little as 20 minutes. It also features an automatic sanitizing cycle and technology for detecting foreign objects. It’s important to note, though, that this device will not remove any fingerprints or other marks. It focuses on killing the invisible bacteria and contaminants that live on your smartphone’s surface.
Any smartphone that’s equipped with Qi charging technology will be compatible with Oblio but it does set a dimension limit of up to 1.05cm in thickness. Additionally, devices should also not have a metallic case when using the charger.
Oblio retails for $79.99 at Urban Outfitters and comes in three colors: White, gold, and dark blue.
