  • Fun for a carry round UV light.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - Very cool effect. Fluoresces things just like a blacklight.
    - Fairly bright. I would estimate it has about 80 lumens of UV light.
    - Host is good, although very common. I have 4 of these same types of host bodies now. Great for pop ins of other emitters.
    - Charges GITD material instantly.

    Cons:

    - No clip. Not sure why the title says it has a clip, but this host has never had clips from the 4 others I have.
    - The host body is nice and looks good, but as said in other reviews, the paint chips right off, so don't drop it.
    - Beam is pretty diffused, which is not really a horrible thing but the beam-spot is misshaped, messy, and is not consistent.

    OtherThoughts:

    - Reverse clicky
    - Works fine with 3.6v rechargables.

    Bottomline:

    Great light to play around with. This is a good compliment to any powerful violet laser. Great for portable powerful UV when you need it or just want to make stuff glow/fluoresce!
