Cleaning the screen of your electronic device can sometimes be a boring and inefficient process. Wouldn’t it be nice to just wipe away all of the fingerprints and bits of dust on a display? Well, with the iEraser, you can! Debuted at CES 2012 (you can review our live blog coverage of their little press conference here), this $14.95 (Amazon) product can do just that–it easily, quickly, and efficiently removes all signs of fingerprints and debris from your touch-screen device. Is it worth the $14.95? Absolutely. Scroll down a little bit more to read (or watch) our full review of this fantastic little patent-pending product.
The iEraser itself is manufactured right here in the USA, which is noted on the front of the packaging. Speaking of the packaging, it’s a bit plain, but that’s alright. You don’t get anything fancy with your purchase, just the iEraser and a small card that tells you how to care for your product, and where 25 cents of each purchase goes. The latter bit is pretty neat, because every 25 cents of each purchase will go towards a certain charity, which depends on the color of iEraser that you choose (of which there are 3–black, pink, white).
The top portion of the iEraser is made of a smooth type of plastic, while the actually cleaning surface is made of what seems to be similar to the material that’s used on a chalkboard eraser. The difference here is that it’s a bit more thick, and is made specifically for surfaces for various electronic devices. Physically, the size is perfect. It’s not too big, nor is it too small. It’s about as wide as an iPhone 4, but isn’t as tall. This allows for the iEraser to works on screens of virtually all sizes.
I’ve used the iEraser several times on different devices, ranging from televisions to smartphones & laptop displays to tablets. The iEraser instantly removes all signs of fingerprints and dust from all of those screens. In the above example, I used my iPad 2. On the right side, you’ll see all of the fingerprints. On the left side, after using the iEraser, they’re all gone.
Overall, the iEraser is a cheap & fun way to clean your screen, and the results are pretty impressive. Is the iEraser really the “ultimate screen cleaning device?” I think so.
