How to clean the Microsoft HoloLens 2?

In this article, you will learn about the best ways to clean or ensure hygiene using the Microsoft HoloLens 2 headset. There are 2 different methods recommended by VR Expert to clean or ensure a more hygienic experience with the HoloLens 2.

Method 1. Disinfectant Wipes

What is needed:

  • Microsoft HoloLens 2
  • Disinfectant Wipes

Important! Strong alcohol wipes should not be used on the Microsoft HoloLens 2. The first method to clean the Microsoft HoloLens 2 is through the use of disinfectant wipes. These have shown to be a rather effective solution especially with the Microsoft HoloLens 2. Take care when cleaning the headset that you do not use abrasive wipes on the visor of the headset, rather use a standard glasses cleaner to avoid irreparable damage.  The disadvantages of disinfectant wipes is that they do not remove all the dirt and bacteria found on the headset. This is highly dependent on how thoroughly it is cleaned and the quality of the wipes. Another disadvantage is the possibility of damaging the headset if a strong alcohol wipe is used on it.

Advantages

  • Easy to use
  • Quick solution

Disadvantages

  • Can damage headset
  • Not 100% effective
  • Effectiveness dependant on type of wipe

Method 2. UVC Light with the Uvisan UV-C Disinfection Cabinets

What is needed:

  • Microsoft HoloLens 2
  • Uvisan VR12 / VR20 / VR30

The Uvisan is the most effective disinfectant method for the Microsoft HoloLens 2. Uvisan is a disinfection cabinet that helps you to quickly and safely disinfect your equipment by using UVC light. Uvisan cabinets have been proven to kill 99.9% of all pathogens including viruses and bacterias within a short period of time. The Uvisan has a number of other advantages, the cabinets are able to store and clean a number of Microsoft HoloLens 2’s at the same time, useful for events and training sessions with multiple devices. The Uvisan’s also come with a locking system meaning the Microsoft HoloLens 2’s can be stored in the cabinets overnight without issue. The cabinets include multiple charging ports meaning the HoloLens 2’s can be charged while being cleaned or stored. The Uvisan also has some small disadvantages, the cabinets require a power source to be used, which can be difficult when it would be used in different locations. The cabinets also have a higher upfront purchase price. 

Advantages

  • Kills 99.9% of bacteria
  • 2 minute cleaning cycle
  • Storage system
