Please waste your money on this... Perhaps the stimulus cash will help...

Good chance this is bogus. The UV you can get from LEDs is very, very poor at killing anything. Good at curing adhesives and making certain dyes fluoresce, but that's about it.

The UV-C you want for sterilization is nearly impossible to produce with LEDs; it can be done but tends to be incredibly weak -- LEDs simply destroy themselves when producing these short wavelengths. Getting a useful intensity of UV-C takes a fused-silica lamp, which this isn't.

The description claims "UVC" without stating an actual wavelength, shows blurry FDA and EPA paperwork but no detail, and generally raises all my skepticism-hackles. I did a bit of searching around and can't find any independent tests, either of actual germicidal efficacy, or simply confirmation of measured wavelength and intensity.

This is for people who don't think... The same people who either don't read or do read but don't understand what MYSELF said above
