Cool gadget – 3-in-1 0.5mW Red Laser + White Light + UV Light LED Flashlight Keychain (3 x AG13 / LR44) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
-Really cool, versatile gadget.
-Really good price.
-White LED is decently bright. Useful as a flashlight.
-Laser is nice and bright... what you'd expect of a 5mA (not 0.5mA as stated) laser.
Cons:
-Good at first, but the laser button is becoming finicky over time.
-The UV LED seems to put out a lot of visible light and limited amounts of UV light. You can see marks on some bills, but you can't see bacteria on your hands or anything like you can with purer UV lights. Still cool.
-This is sort of a con and sort of isn't: The light button is a toggle, not a momentary switch, so it turns on in my pocket and is almost dead when I want to use it. I had this fixed for a while by gluing on the plastic piece that puts a ring around the button to prevent this problem, but it somehow came off, and I lost it. It's hard to keep it glued on to the shape and material used.
Other:
Bottomline:
Good value. Build quality is a little questionable, but definitely not the worst. Very cool, useful gadget that I'd recommend, especially for the price.
