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

    Pros:

    Piezo-electric lighter.
    Adjustable flame size/gas consumption.
    Easy to use.
    Lighter only triggered willingly, no accidental pressing of the button in the pocket (it has a slider, not a button).
    Easier to carry in the pocket than sku1300 or sku0088 and more versatile.

    Can be used to check bank notes.

    Cons:

    Only one led for UV, need to move it to find the fluorescent ink and to read it. Also emits visible violet light.

    LED buttons may get pressed accidentally and drain battery.

    Slides very easily out of the pocket (lost 2 already, found one on the floor of my car).

    OtherThoughts:

    Can be carried without looking like a geek toy. As handy as a swiss-army knife.

    Can also be given as a gift to a geek and even to a non-geek (although the plastic looks cheap).

    Bottomline:

    Get several. Nice and cheap gifts.
