Till last week, for me ‘Magic Wands’ existed only in fairy tales or movies like the Harry Potter series. But then I was introduced to Acuva Solarix – a powerful chemical-free disinfection device, that achieves an efficacy rate of greater than 99.5% against bacteria and viruses, including the SARS-CoV-2 virus. It really has come like a blessing in disguise while we go through the toughest phase of the global pandemic here in India. With almost 4,00,000 accounted cases per day, we have the world’s most COVID cases in a day for a week now.
And the way things are headed, only a miracle or magic can save us from this catastrophe.

In the box you get the Acuva Solarix UV LED Portable Disinfection Device, USB C- Charging Cable, User’s Manual, Protective Gloves,
The Acuva Solarix UV LED Portable Disinfection Device is a compact, handheld device that uses high-intensity germicidal UV-C LED energy to effectively clean and disinfect contaminated surfaces in seconds. It won’t be wrong to call it a Magical Wand thanks to its handheld foldable design and the blue guiding lights it emits. Since it weighs under 300 grams and can be folded or tilted it is very accessible and allows users to reach every nook and corner.
Thanks to its unique form factor, you can use it to sterilize anytime anywhere and for anything – groceries, mobile phone, keys, sofas, beds, towels, carpets, computer toys, your car, baby items, office desk, hotel, bathroom, shop counter, etc.
The device can be unfolded to a 270-degree angle to disinfect contoured and hard to reach surfaces. It is foldable and can be carried anywhere in a pocket or handbag.
To protect it from children or accidental usage, users have to tilt it beyond 180 degrees and activate the safety lock switch to start using it. Once both the tilt angle and safety switch have been unlocked, users have to press the blinking button with the Acuva logo on the top to use the device.
While most UV sterilization boxes/devices available in the market take around 3-15 minutes to disinfect, Acuva SOLARIX on the other hand takes only 5 seconds. In terms of usability, it works for an hour on a single charge. The in-built 3200 mAh battery can be completely charged via USB Type-C cable in a matter of minutes.
