What is the difference between the SteriShoe+ and the Essential?

The SteriShoe+ has a 5W, more powerful, double lamp, sanitizes in just 15 minutes. And, has an added fan feature, with optional double click, that will run for up to 8 hours to dry out wet/sweaty shoes. The fan feature is great for outdoor or sports enthusiasts. This model also has as large controller disk, with pictures, descriptive words, and audible sounds for ease in troubleshooting. MSRP: $159.95.

The SteriShoe Essential has our standard 3W bulb and sanitizes in 45 minutes. This model does not have the large controller disk or fan feature and is smaller in size. This is a great option for people who just need a basic sanitizer, or a more compact unit for ease of travel. MSRP: $129.95

***Both units are universal in to shoe size. Each model has a different power cord, meaning the power cords are NOT universal between models.
