There is a timer for the UV-C light sterilization and air fan so that these systems turn off after a set amount of time to preserve the life of these systems. When the timer runs out, the light sanitization, disinfection and air fan will stop automatically.

[0053] In one embodiment of the invention, the light sanitization and disinfection that is performed is Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI), which is a disinfection method that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet (ultraviolet C or UVC), light to kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions. UVGI is used in a variety of applications, such as food, air, and water purification. This produces strong enough UVC light in circulating air or water systems to make them inhospitable environments to microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, molds and other pathogens.

[0054] In one embodiment of the invention, the UV-C light sterilization that is performed is Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI), which is a sterilization method that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet (ultraviolet C or UVC), light to kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions. UVGI is used in a variety of applications, such as food, air, and water purification. This produces strong enough UVC light in circulating air or water systems to make them inhospitable environments to microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, molds and other pathogens.

[ 0055] UV light is electromagnetic radiation with wavelengths shorter than visible light but longer than X-rays. UV can be separated into various ranges, with short-wavelength UV (UVC) considered "germicidal UV". Wavelengths between about 200 nm and 300 nm are strongly absorbed by nucleic acids. The absorbed energy can result in defects including pyrimidine dimers. These dimers can prevent replication or can prevent the expression of necessary proteins, resulting in the death or inactivation of the organism.

[0056] UV-C light is electromagnetic radiation with wavelengths shorter than visible light but longer than X-rays. UV-C light can be separated into various ranges, with short- wavelength UV (UVC) considered "germicidal UV-C". Wavelengths between about 100~275nm are strongly absorbed by nucleic acids. The absorbed energy can result in defects including pyrimidine dimers. These dimers can prevent replication or can prevent the expression of necessary proteins, resulting in the death or inactivation of the organism. The UVC band wavelength is 100 ~275nm, also known as short-wave sterilization. Ultraviolet penetration is weak, and cannot penetrate most transparent glass and plastic. Sunlight contains short-wave ultraviolet rays, and is almost completely absorbed by the ozone layer. Short-wave ultraviolet rays are harmful to the human body. Long-term or high-intensity burns. Irradiation can also cause skin cancer ultraviolet germicidal lamps to emit UVC short-wave ultraviolet rays. In another embodiment of the invention, a combination of UVC(260nm-270nm) for sterilizing and UVA(395nm-405nm) for auxiliary disinfection is effective.

[0057] Mercury-based lamps operating at low vapor pressure emit UV light at the 253.7 nm line. As such, in one embodiment of the invention, mercury based lamps are used for UV light.

[0058] Ultraviolet light-emitting diodes (UVC LED) lamps emit UV light at selectable wavelengths between 255 and 280 nm. As such, in one embodiment of the invention, UVC LED lamps are used for UV light.

[0059] Ultraviolet light-emitting diodes (UVC LED) lamps emit UV-C light at selectable wavelengths between 260 to 270 nm. As such, in one embodiment of the invention, UV C LED lamps are used for UV light.

[0060] Pulsed-xenon lamps emit UV light across the entire UV spectrum with a peak emission near 230 nm. As such, in one embodiment of the invention, pulsed-xenon lamps are used for UV light.

[0061] The effectiveness of germicidal UV depends on the length of time a microorganism is exposed to UV, the intensity and wavelength of the UV radiation, the presence of particles that can protect the microorganisms from UV, and a microorganism’s ability to withstand UV during its exposure. As such, in one embodiment of the invention, the time that the hair appliances are exposed to UV light can be adjusted, it can be increased for additional effectiveness, or lowered if the user has limited time available.

[0062] The effectiveness of germicidal UV-C light depends on the length of time a microorganism is exposed to UV-C light, the intensity and wavelength of the UV-C radiation, the presence of particles that can protect the microorganisms from UV-C, and a microorganism's ability to withstand UV-C during its exposure. As such, in one embodiment of the invention, the time that the hair appliances are exposed to UV-C light can be adjusted, it can be increased for additional effectiveness, or lowered if the user has limited time available.

[ 0063 ] Lamp cooling under airflow can also lower UV output; thus, care should be taken to shield lamps from direct airflow, or to add additional lamps to compensate for the cooling effect. As such, the present invention maximizes UV light by functioning without direct airflow in an encased space, because the system is in a case that prevents outside air flow.

[0064] Lamp cooling under airflow can also lower UV-C output; thus, care should be taken to shield lamps from direct airflow, or to add additional lamps to compensate for the cooling effect. As such, the present invention maximizes UV-C light by functioning without direct airflow in an encased space, because the system is in a case that prevents outside air flow.

[0065] In one embodiment of the invention, coiled cords are connected to each of the appliances from the system, including the flat iron, curling iron and hair dryer. Today there are no curling irons or flat irons that have coiled cords globally from any company on the market. Coiled cords would be useful in these devices because they prevent any slack in a loose cord, which might then be pulled by a child who might get injured by a hot curling iron or flat iron. Coiled cords would prevent any slack, and so a child would not have anything that they could reach to pull, and so the child would be safer than they otherwise would be. Coiled cords also prevent a child from ripping the entire system out of the wall and injuring the child or anyone else. Coiled cords are a must have for the hotel accounts and residentials at home consumer accounts as they cannot have the standard 8 foot to 9 foot flat cords hanging on the bathroom counter and down to the floor for visual, cosmetic and liability reasons. These cords are also first to market in the hotel category, and the retail at home user market, and a main sales point in that both the hotel and retail residential at home user consumer. These coiled cords remove the mess that all homes have by long 8 foot to 9 foot standard flat cords produce. These coiled cords solve that issue. These coiled cords were developed at a specific length to solve that visual problem for the hotel market and residential markets.

[0066] In another embodiment of the invention, the timing, charging and sanitary process is controlled by a computer built into the case, utilizing a processor, memory and storage for instructions on when to recharge, when to automatically shut off appliances that have been outside the case too long, how long to charge appliances when they are in the case, and when and how to run the UV light to sanitize and disinfect the hair appliances inside the case.

[0067] In another embodiment of the invention, the timing, charging and sterilization process is controlled by a computer built into the unit, utilizing a processor, memory and storage for instructions on when to recharge, when to automatically shut off appliances that have been outside the case too long, how long to charge appliances when they are in the case, and when and how to run the UV-C light to sterilize the hair appliances inside the unit.

[0068] In another embodiment of the invention, 2 forms of hair appliance auto shut off technology initiated and controlled by a laser and a timer. When the user puts the hair appliances back in the system, the system shuts the power off to the appliances based on a timer system. When you leave the appliances out of the system, the system will also shut the power off to the appliances based upon a timer system. This makes sure there are no appliances left running and unattended.

[0069] In another embodiment of the invention, the invention includes a first to market coiled corded flat iron and curling iron and blow dryer. The coiled cords attached to the Flat iron and Curling and blow dryer protects from long cords hanging in a bathroom which visually unattractive. It also protects against a child grabbing and pulling on the cords and potentially ripping the whole unit out of the wall and potentially hurting that child.

[0070] In another embodiment of the invention, the system’s front plate is removable, and can be replaced by a screen expansion kit that customers can buy and install on their own. This new front plate which is called a Screen Expansion Kit allows paid advertisements to be played on the screen which we load from a corporate office, and the corporate office shares that advertising revenue with customers. It also allows for people to buy the appliances right from the Screen Expansion Kit, and those appliances will be shipped from a distribution center to that customer’s doorstep. This will also be a part of a shared revenue model with customers.

[0071] In one embodiment of the invention, in which the invention is meant to be used in a hotel room, there are plugs to plug the hair appliances in for power. Those plugs are on the inside of the unit.

[0072] In another embodiment of the invention the system is as small as possible so as to make it convenient for the user to carry from location to location. This is more likely during the coronavirus pandemic as well, considering that hair salons have largely closed, so any such use of hair appliances will be in someone’s home. This will eliminate the need for the user to go from someone’s house to a place to disinfect their hair appliances, and then to the next house. Instead, the user can go from house to house, and be confident that the present invention has disinfected the hair appliances as well as recharged the hair appliances.

[ 0073] In another embodiment of the invention the system the cooling air fan has been removed, and the task of keeping the system cool is left to the user. This version is intended for personal retail consumption, because if only 1 or a limited number of individuals in a household is using the device, it is less likely to overheat in comparison to a version in constant use in a hotel.

[0074] In one embodiment of the invention, there is a retail model version of the system.
