Our GermAwayUV Xtreme 55 Watt Handheld UVC Surface Sanitizer is the most powerful UV-C handheld device available. This unit destroys 99.9% of harmful bacteria, viruses (including COVID-19), mold spores, yeasts, fungi, C. diff, and odors. It’s so powerful that typical molds are effectively treated in half of the time.


  • Portable and Powerful: easy-grip handle makes it is easy to maneuver and hold. Can be held close to surfaces for strong sanitation or held longer at a further distance to reach hard to get surface e.g. gaps between cupboards
  • Lightweight: At 7lbs it’s easy for anyone to pick up and use
  • Bulb Life of up to 10,000 hours: No need for frequent lamp replacement
  • Shatter-Proof Bulb Coating Available: in case of a broken bulb the glass shards will remain trapped in the coating, making it suitable for use in food processing industry
  • Chemical Free UV-C light application that produces zero ozone
  • Electronically Brightened Reflectors for increased UV-C output and efficiency

Just like our Mountable UV-C Sanitizers, this unit is designed for disinfecting large coverage areas in production facilities. Ideally, you would use multiple units of the mountable sanitizers, set up as part of an automated process of disinfection. But what happens when you need to disinfect a component outside of that process? Well, this handheld sanitizer offers a great alternative solution with the same powerful effect.

Do I need shatterproof coating?

Although shatterproof coating can lower the intensity of the UV-C bulb by as much as 15%, it is recommended for applications in which it is crucial to avoid potential glass breakage at all costs. These applications include but are not limited to food processing and medical institutions. However, if glass breakage would be inconvenient but not catastrophic, skipping the costly shatterproof coating is quite alright. After all, we do not use shatterproof coating with our glasses and plates at home.

We’re especially proud that this unit is made right here in the USA, and with these features and benefits listed above, we’re confident that it will add value to your business however you choose to use it!

    How do I know it is actually working?

    Our customers often ask us how they know that the Xtreme 55 Watt Handheld UV-C Sanitizer is actually working. It is a pretty reasonable question to ask. After all, the disinfection that UV-C provides is happening at a microscopic level. This is why we have started including a set of free UV-C Visualizer Strips along with all GermAwayUV Surface Disinfection products. Simply place the UV-C Visualizer card on the surface that you wish to disinfect and run the handheld sanitizer over it. After running the handheld unit over it, the yellow stripe on the card should change from a bright yellow to light green. If there is no color change then you need to either slow down the rate at which you move the handheld sanitizer or get closer to the substrate.

        Thank you for reaching out and your patience...I am sending the link to the Technical Data Sheet for the 55W product. In hopes that this helps....the sheet is good for the bases of what your looking for, for the measurements....We will in the future come up with a TDS for that wattage soon.

      • we are considering this for cleaning portable production equipment checked out and returned by students here at FSU. DSLR cameras, tripods, light kits, audio equipment. DO you know if the process would potential damage sensitive electronic equipment?


        Our handhelds devices should not damage sensitive electronic equipment because the idea of usage behind our handhelds is to wave above the object you're trying to sanitize. With the equipment you listed I would recommend the handhelds versus our mountables. I hope this helps with your purchase decision and further questions please don't hesitate to ask.

      • I just received my unit Xtreme 95 how do I install the light tube since I did not get any info how to install the light???

        Remove the 4 small screws on the end with the power cord and on /off switch.
        The inner cartridge slides out and then you can install the lamp by pushing firmy down into socket.
        You will hear a click when it fully engages.
        Slide back into outer housing and install the 4 screws,

      • Is the 95 Watt unit the same size and weight as the 55 Watt?

        Same size slightly higher weight due to ballast and wiring. The difference is less than 1/4 of a pound though.

      • Does this unit have an On/Off switch?
