Pros:
It's a very small footprint unit that gives a UVI reading. It gives consistenly readings. My guess is that it uses the OKI´s ML8511, which I think is now discontinued. Have done several consecutive readings and all of them gave me approximately the same meassurement.
Cons:
The problem with the OKI ML8511 is that it also responds to a fairly significant amount of visible light. In order to make this one a good one, the influence of visible light should be considered. As vitusierra said, be carefull when putting the battery.
Other:
It could cost 10 cents more and include the battery as well.
Bottomline:
A good cheap item that will always keep you on the safety side.
