Made by the Italian company Eggtronic, Einova Mundus Pro is a container with a sanitizing function useful for disinfecting small objects such as cell phones, keys, watches, glasses, caps, jewelry and masks.
Mundus Pro also houses two wireless charging bases for smartphones or other compatible devices and a USB-A port for charging via cable.
So let’s analyze in detail all the features of the Mundus Pro.
Design and features
The Mundus Pro is a plastic box with a refined and modern design, with dimensions of 19.5 x 19.5 x 5.2 cm and a weight of 754 grams. Let’s start our analysis from the lid that houses two wireless charging bases of 10 W each, compatible with the Qi standard. Widely used technology that allows you to recharge the latest iPhones, many Android smartphones and numerous models of Bluetooth headsets. At the rear, in addition to the socket for the external power supply, we also find a USB-A port for charging via cable up to 18 W (up to 12V – 1.5A).
Now let’s move on to the sterilizer function of the Mundus Pro, certified by the EPA. By opening the lid it is possible to access the internal compartment, unfortunately not flat, but divided on two levels, with overall dimensions of 16.2 x 16.2 x 2.7 cm. Here it is possible to house two smartphones, even large ones, or other small objects such as headphones, watches, glasses, jewels and masks.
Inside the Mundus Pro we find two UV-C lamps and 4 UV-C LEDs capable of eliminating 99.999% of viruses and bacteria present on the surface of objects. Sanitizing action that also uses a small amount of ozone produced by the UV-C lamp and titanium dioxide, used for the internal housing, which acts as a catalyst for the UV-C lamp and ozone.
The sterilization process takes 8 minutes, with 99.98% of the bacteria eliminated in just 2 minutes. Sanitation that can be monitored by means of the circular front LED divided into 4 segments that indicate the progress of the process. Once finished, the Mundus Pro will warn us with an acoustic signal.
We conclude with the package that includes only a manual in Italian.
Experience of use and price
Using the Mundus Pro is really very simple; as far as sterilization is concerned, simply open the door and place everything we want to disinfect inside it (mobile phone, earphones, earrings, watches and more) and press the front button. It is not necessary to disinfect one side at a time, because the reliefs at the base of the internal compartment allow the passage of UV-C rays even under the objects.
As far as wireless charging is concerned, of course, it will be enough to place smartphones and headphones on the lid to start charging.
Given the characteristics of the Mundus Pro, it was not possible to evaluate the performance of the sanitizing system. According to the company’s claims, the product is effective on resistant viruses, fungi and bacteria, such as Streptococcus pyogenes, Aspergillus niger, Candida albicans and Escherichia coli. In addition, UV-C rays eliminate 99.99% of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, in just 10 seconds of exposure.
Product that never showed any problems during our tests. Among the aspects that did not convince us we point out the plastic of the body and the hinge of the lid of not very high quality and the internal compartment on two levels. In addition, there is no power button. Finally, a shame for the wireless charging system not present inside the box.
