The only real purposes I see
- disinfection of kitchen things like cutting boards, especially wooden ones
- disinfection in lab that deal with bacteria and viruses

260nm is way more deadly than 275nm, every nm counts

How close to the surface do you have to hold it and for how long?

How long does it take to blow up their little virusass microbe bodies..

Just wash your hands with some 1% hydrogen peroxide if you are worried, or wash all surfaces with it.
You can wash your face even or do mouth rinses

Just don’t drink it or think that it will cure of you an virus infection once you developed the symptoms.

I’ll stick with my approx. 11*W* lamp with good ol’ tubes for the time being Evil

Cost a lot though, so I’m glad it’s not obsolete yet Big Smile

But how about some new information from the (far) east, regarding the title of this thread?

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

but still give sane people the possibility to buy knife and forks, screwdrivers and other tools?

The difference is
that you feel the pain
when it sting into your body.

Guys, I personally am very sceptical about handheld UV-C sterilisers. First of all, the sterilisation is slow, many wand held UV-C flashlights only remove 50-75% of microbes in dropplets and colonies on petri dishes after 30sec exposure at 5cm distance (2 inches).Stationary UV-c sterilisers and inclosed timed systems tend to be great, but these hendhelds, I dont know… Secondly, I am not a fan of these being used by general population. UV-C even in low doses can burn skin and damage eyes. Plus it can cause spiral compounds to straighten up. It can interfere with dna on molecular level causing random damage and cancer. Since its invisible it can be left turn on unnoticed.
