Sterly has a flashlight-style design that is portable and lightweight. It can be easily carried in your pocket, bag, or purse.
No warm-up time needed. Sterly is ready to go as soon as you turn it on.
Sterly consists of a high power 60mW LED, emitting UVC light at a peak wavelength of 265nm.
The device takes on average 4-10 seconds to clean the radiated area at a 5cm distance.
Sterly uses only high-quality components. It's Crystal-IS Klaran LED, manufactured in Japan, has passed numerous tests to guarantee reliability.
The body manufacturer is LUMICA, a Japanese company with vast experience in manufacturing many popular items.
With Sterly, you can re-use your masks, reducing the amount of waste.
According to the NCBI journal, a UVC dose of 10J/cm2 does not affect a normal surgical mask's filtration efficiency.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why did we invent Sterly?
The inspiration for Sterly came at the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak. Many businesses, including MIACO Plus, were highly affected by the pandemic. As a result, we began to research what could be done to improve the situation. Combining our knowledge of Physics and Electrical & Electronic Engineering, we came up with the idea for a portable but powerful UVC sterilizer for everyday needs, surpassing the power of the existing devices that utilize UVC technology. From then on, we focused all our time and energy on digging into every single aspect of the theory, electronics, and practical usages of UVC. And now we proudly present you Sterly, the UVC flashlight that is the ideal solution for fighting the germs that surround us.
What is UVC?
Is UVC effective against COVID-19?
How do I know it is working?
Can Sterly be used to disinfect a mask?
How much time do I need to disinfect an item?
How long can Sterly be used?
How far away from an item should I hold Sterly while disinfecting?
At a distance of 5cm, Sterly can inactivate germs in 5 – 10 seconds on average . The time needed to disinfect germs decreases significantly when holding Sterly closer to a surface. At a distance of 3cm, Sterly requires around 2-4 seconds.
Is Sterly safe to use?
It is strongly advised that a user never points Sterly towards anyone’s eyes or skin. UVC is highly absorbable by different materials, for example glass and plastic. Also, the flashlight design and an obvious piloting light can ensure the UVC is emitted in the intended direction and easy to spot.
Will the UVC light reflect back to my hand when disinfecting electronic devices?
UVC will be normally absorbed by glass or phone surfaces and negligible reflection can occur.
What materials reflect UVC
Why is Sterly better than UVC lamps?
For many years, UV mercury lamps were considered to be the best choice. However,these lamps have several limitations including low activity at refrigeration temperatures, fragile construction, long warm-up time, risk of mercury exposure, and limited UV emittance at 254 nm. Sterly uses UV light-emitting diodes (UV LEDs) which do not contain toxic mercury, work instantly and emit an optimal UV wavelength of 265nm for disinfection. UVC LEDs are compact, durable and well suited to battery powered operation for point-of-care tools and mobile healthcare equipment.
