  • Good UV light, when it works

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Nicely designed body and fits well in the hand.
    Solid click of the switch.

    Cons:

    Randomly turns itself off when powered by rechargeable NiMh cells and lithium primary cells.
    I am unsure if it's overheating or if the switch is bad.
    I took the switch apart and reassembled it. It worked OK for about 5 minutes and then shut off again.

    OtherThoughts:

    I bought this light to use for UV based Geocaches.
    While using it during a recent geocaching event, the light would shut off for no apparent reason, right when I needed it the most.
    It would take several minutes for the light to come on again before I could continue working on the UV puzzle.

    Bottomline:

    Nice looking light but not dependable.
