SideKick by LensPen®

Touchscreen cleaning kit

Our take on the SideKick™ by LensPen®

by Dave Bar

Touchscreens are awesome — whether they're built into your digital camera, iPhone®, iPad® or other personal electronic devices. But they also collect fingerprints like a CSI team hot on the case. Help keep 'em clean with the SideKick by LensPen. This safe, highly effective cleaning system uses a patented dry compound to keep your screens looking like new — no messy liquids or dirty cloths required. The whole system folds up neatly into its own convenient storage case with a snap-on top. Each cleaning pad provides up to 150 cleanings and can easily be replaced with additional pads (sold separately).

Was not expecting such great results

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Wow... this little gadget is amazing. I have purchased cleaning clothes, etc but you always have to put so much effort before the screen is clean. I have literally spent several minutes getting the screen clean prior to now. The UPS guy just showed up,I opened the package, took this little gadget out, pulled the cap off, and wiped the pad over my ipad screen. Literally, without so much as any effort what so ever, and in seconds the screen is spotless. When I started it had so many fingerprints and oil that the screen was not readable.
No Effort spotless cleaning, small and tiny you can take it with you.
