Just what I needed to locate where my cat had urinated around the house. However, it did not work right out of the package. After installing the batteries properly, the flashlight did not work. I used my electrical knowledge to identify a connection problem in the base. There is a spring that should make contact with bare metal in the base, but it didn't. I pulled and twisted the spring until it came out of the base. Then I popped the black plastic spring holder out with a screw driver. Then I used pliers to spread out the big end of the spring so that when I reassembled the base, the bottom of the spring would touch bare metal in the base. Otherwise, it is bright enough to walk with and light up pet stains from about 6 feet away. It also has a small hole drilled in base to attach a lanyard (not included).
If you are seeking a blacklight uv flashlight to locate scorpions in the dark this is a wonderful first light. I was surprised to find that Wal-Mart actually carried this type of light and very pleased with the 8.88$ price. I had read that a blacklight would cause scorpions to glow so I started to research different lights for purchase. Almost all of the lights available from reliable sources were much more expensive. Most of these lights seemed to be of a similar construction and size as this light. A lot of these lights also used 3 AAA batteries as well, so I figured power output would be similar.
I`m glad I bought this light at Wal-Mart instead of buying a much more expensive light online. This light at $8.88 comes with batteries. I have used this light 3 nights in a row and the batteries are still going strong.
Does this light cause scorpions to glow in the dark enabling you to find them? Oh, yes!!!
Scorpions will glow a bright green under this light. They are easily found and destroyed. The range of this small light is about 15-20 feet (in very dark conditions). Of course you must work with as little normal light as possible as the blacklight is not very powerful. Once you get used to working with this small light you should be very pleased with it`s performance, especially considering it`s price and decent quality. As a side note, I was amazed by how many things uv light causes to glow. Some paint, string, many plastics, etc. Quite a neat learning experience. Buy this light for inexpensive scorpion detection!
I bought this flashlight to find cat urine on a carpet. It did the job really well, it was very easy to use and was very bright.
To this to locate tomato hornworms on my tomato plants. Yes, they do glow purple/blue in the dark with a black light. Really helped us with ridding our plants of these pests & helped us avoid having to use chemicals.
does what it is advertised to do.. great lil blacklight flashlight
Went scorpion hunting in my yard with this flashlight tonight. Worked great for the price! The bark scorpions shown as neon green. Even found a mom scorpion with babies on her back. (The babies do not glow, by the way.) For the price, a super blacklight for your amateur scorpion hunting enthusiasts!
Got a rescue dog at 1 year old that I realized was not totally housebroken. Since I have light carpeting all over my apartment, I couldn't pinpoint all his urine mistakes. This UV flashlight is perfect. I walked around the whole apartment and found all the areas I had missed. Steam cleaned them and the carpet cane out great!. A must for pet owners.
I have gone through several black light flashlights (I use them to locate bark scorpions, which can be deadly and are common in Arizona). I have had to return more expensive, no name lights to other online outlets because they did not work new out of the box. This light arrived packaged well, and worked as it should as soon as the batteries were put in. It is still performing perfectly.
The LED's emit UV light, unlike fluorescent lights which produce a larger spectrum of light then filter it with an exterior coating. If you think your place is clean, don't walk around it with one of these!
I make my own fishing lures using nail polish with bright colors. This great little flashlight shows me which polish has the greatest UV-induced fluorescence--which many fish are attracted to.
It does the job for spotting a freon leak as long as you use the UV dye freon.
The Value Bright is an overall good deal and an effective portable black light. It comes ready to use and worked well in dim or dark rooms.
Brighter than the 100 LED, switch seems much stronger. Smaller, lighter and easier to use. You can find scorpions crawling through the grass 20 feet away from you.
Was able to locate and repair the air conditioning leak on 2 of my vehicles. I have a cat that pukes a lot and was able to locate those puke spots with this flashlight.
Purchased these flashlights for scorpion hunting with my grandchildren. We had such a great time. Scorpions are translucent and can not been seen to we'll in the desert sands. They had so much fun and excitment. We didn't hurt the scorpions we just found them.
It's usable, though there is a lot of visible spectrum light. Not sure what wavelength diodes it uses.
Great value for the money, though.
In store price was twenty percent less than online. They just filled the order from the store.
He loves it. I even tried it out. It is very good for detecting things you can't see with the naked eye. Let's just say my bathroom is much cleaner than I thought it was before this product shed its little light.
I bought this to check for pet stains (cat urine) on carpet. It worked great allowing me to find the stains. Other specialty UV lights for detecting pet stains were around $30 and less efficient at the pet stores and home improvement stores. The portability of this light and small form factor allows it go with you anywhere. Use it to find pet stains, black scorpions and even the cleanliness of bathrooms or hotel rooms.
It is bright and shows pet urine easily. It comes with batteries installed however I replaced them with new ones since I had no idea how old they were. It made a huge difference. It works as advertised and is useful to inspect everything from hotel rooms to campsites.
