No-touch automatic hand sanitizer dispenser


King Jim Co is releasing a new alcohol hand sanitizer dispenser on Feb 15. Since it works on batteries, there is no need for a power outlet nearby.

The simple and compact design makes it suitable for use in the household as well as public spaces like office, hospitals, and hotels. The container is see-through, so it is easy to tell when it needs a refill, which can be done using alcohol liquid disinfectants at your local drug store.

Price: 4,900 yen.

Not necessary. They sell these in the UK, expensive and pointless.

Just got back from a cruise, and they had something similar all over the ship.

Well considering you'd touch it before washing your hands then I don't think it makes a difference.

I got something similar at less than half the price. That company was really shrewd - the plastic jar just couldn't be opened, so I drilled a hole in the top and bought the company's cheap refills which came in plastic bags. They were forcing customers to buy new plastic jars which cost 600 yen. The refills I got were less than 200 yen. Make sure you get the same company's product if using the foam type - I prefer these to the liquid type.

Not good. Also Mitsubishi hand dryer is also not good because your hand touches the dryer and the force of air splashes the wet hands

why was that company selling refills if their jars couldn’t be opened? Where do they expect people to use the refills?

The company had two types of dispensers - one was automatic like the one above. The other was an ordinary pump which you pressed - just a few hundred yen. The refills were different - the former used the 600 yen jars, the latter
