I noticed in other thread it is advised to wear uv glasses. Good to find out as I don’t have any uv type lights and was unaware of that fact . Thanks again .

I ordered a second pair of Uvex glasses because I know my kids will be wowed by the new world they're about to discover.  That particular model is the cheapest, too, hehe.smile

Turns out I have 2 pair of Uvex 3000 series safety glasses from previous work places. One is clear lens and one is yellow lens. They both pass the shine uv light through safety lens onto fluorescent object test making the bad stuff disappear. Thumbs Up

Sorry about the issues of "coupon", my colleague may did some mistake so it invalid Facepalm Facepalm , we just did another 20% code which will show in the Amazon page in 3 hours later.

 

I wonder who I could contact to get more details about the WK30 and the brand „Wurkkos“. I have asked Sofirn, then I was told by Tracy to contact „Jackie“ (which actually is the account of Cissy?) but this has been a dead end so far.

I had all the flashlights I need and more. I was done ordering flashlights, but you pulled me back in with that stellar review, Lightbringer. Found the 20% coupon and just had to order the WK30. It appears my flashoholism knows no bounds.

This light was quite a bit more than I expected. The modes for the UV and red were quite impressive considering I wasn’t expecting a lot from these LED’s. On top of that the 351D has good output as well. Well worth the cost but I do wish it were a little less cost. The battery tested about 150mah more that rated with my Lii 500.

Hey, thanks! And I know you mean.

I’ve been all flashlighted out, too. FW3A? D4S? FT03? Etc.? Do I really need one? Not at all, except for “just to have one” reasons, which I can’t really justify anymore.

This little critter’s useful, and I just can’t keep from playing with it. I’ve taken to using red at night to just check the time’n‘temp. Beats even moonlight on my Cometa. UV? Why not? Big Smile

 

Was thinking, though…

A switch-beacon would be phenomenal. My Cometa’s lit tailswitch is just way too bright, and blue, and I end up unscrewing the cap anyway to not glare in my face at night (kinda defeating the purpose of having it within easy reach at night), and most lit switches are just way too bright anyway.

So was thinking about a dim constantly backlit red. (Got the idea from the Imalent “sleep light”, only not nearly as bright.)

“Breathing” switches like on the SC31 are just annoying, so I keep that turned off. They’re even worse than constant too-bright switches, as the bright/dim variation drags your attention to it. But a simple dim dim dim red backlight on the switch would be perfect.

Received mine today. Not sure how I’ll use it. Typically don’t use red. Not sure of the usefulness of the 395nm UV, though it does light up the stripe on a US $20 and detergent remnants in our company men’s room – I’m sure that’s not urine splatters 4’ up on the walls.

What I do like, is that all of the LED choices have at least two brightness levels to chose from.

After dark, I’ll experiment some more.

Received mine today.  Ordered Friday with the discount code.  First impressions is it is pretty good for the price and features.  Battery is pretty loose inside and rattles inside (fixed that).  The edges of the fins are pretty sharp.  Beside that, I'm waiting for dark to try out the emitters properly.

The specimen I received is flawless with no battery rattle.

Fins on mine are crisp as I would not go so far as to say they are sharp. Not sharp enough to cut skin but very aggressive.

A non-issue IMHO.

I just noticed the rattle …. with the battery installed and tapping the base sideways against my hand, I detect a slight rattle in the battery tube. Tube ID is slightly larger than the provided 26650 battery. I will install a shim of some sort if it becomes a nuisance.

... Happy Landings ...

OK - aggressive is probably a better word than sharp.  No, not really an issue, just something I noticed.  Thanks for the feedback.

Yeah, did notice that about the fins, but it doesn’t bug me.

Had to shake it like a cranky baby to get the battery to rattle, otherwise I wouldn’t‘ve even noticed.
