One can use the back side to kill the more stubborn germs?

I wonder how much this one is going to cost. As far as I have heard, UV-C emitters are considerably more expensive than UV-A emitters. This one will certainly need a big sticker or laser engraving saying "Do NOT direct the beam into your eyes". Martin, I wonder if you may want to add a nice deal for special UV-C protection glasses, too. Wink

Some people may think they don't need to wash hands anymore when using the S43 UV-C edition. Big Smile

Maybe they put a "Anti-Corona" sticker on the box sayin'..."Swipe it over your hands and they're clean"

You definitely don’t need to wash them after that – impossible to wash the skin after it’s long gone ;P

I’m interested to see how this turns out, but I’m not interested in buying one.

Based on their promo emails Banggood certainly seems to be trying to cash in on pandemic fears. Are they going to market this as some sort of personal sterilisation tool?

I thought most common optics for LEDs are made from polycarbonate and don’t transmit much UV light, especially down in the UV C range.

I’m not sure I’d trust myself with a high power UV C light, and my flashlight purchases are going to be constrained for a while by the low Aussie dollar for a while anyway.

This will be quite interesting. If you have a chance to get to know what lens they will be using that would be fantastic. This lens could also be useful for UV-A lights with 365/395nm, assumed the spectral filter characteristics will let this wavelength pass like UV-C. Moreover, the beam angle of that lens will be interesting. I would not want to use 60° or more with a UV-C light. 15° or 30° should be more useful to direct the beam to any surface you want to desinfect or penetrate.

Probably a quartz glass lens, I don’t think they would be able to avoid the floodyness of it though

I’m certainly not your typical germophobic. My motto in life is even: may the best germ win.

What I’m interested in is to know what materials can be tracked with these kind of UV lights.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

finally some UV-C Big Smile
I hope it’s powerful enough.
At least like those 20W UV-C lamps from Aliexpress

20W is what it pulls those produce maybe 50 – 100mw of unfiltered uvc, so if these are filtered hopefully by led, it will most likely perform better even if only 20mw

Top tier LEDs can get 45-50mW out of 4W electrical power, so 4 of those may get 150mW OTF

But I doubt they will put such expensive LEDs in it

I think I’ll have to consider my collection complete for the time being. What would be good is a Chinese seller that is based on Chinese Yuan Renminbi (CNY) rather than USD, the fluctuations seem to be much less.

My main interest lies in the ability to detect onter minerals, not in gettinghand cancer.
Signed up though my order will depend on price and specifications.

What are the specs of the LED?

I’m interested in the emission spectra, bare LED as well as OTF.

I think they will be putting some cheap 395nm chinese leds and some glass to filter out everything above 280nm or whatever is the UVC limit,
because the $30-50 price sounds too good to be true…

That would be way to inneficient, not to mention the cost of a filter like that

On the other forum, Acebeam has annouced a UVC 3535 275nm X80.
As they call it: “protect you from virus!!”. LINK
I could not find it on their website (yet).

With an almost unreadable warning like “wear protective glasses”.
That’s almost like selling guillotines to challenged people, saying it’s a cure for headache.

The owner use glasses
the others not-

My personal opinion is
that this flashlight is a dangerous and unvisible weapon

keep it out of the reach of childreen
and stupid peoples.

When you have childs it would be better to put the light in a safe
or didnt buy it !

i see the dilemma...

in times where people eat tide pods to challenge strangers how to protect them from dangerous things?

but still give sane people the possibility to buy knife and forks, screwdrivers and other tools?


i told banggood to have a lot of warnings (no toy / keep away from kids etc) on the page and product
other suggestions?

M4D M4X, thank you for your reaction. First: I’m still as interested in it as before.

This type of light needs more than just (special!!) protective glasses.
When working with this light, you need to protect your whole body. Gloves etc.

I think this is a useful LINK.

Seriously, these warnings about danger are getting really annoying.
Every person here is assuming all the others are dumb, and that only they know the dangers of UVC.
And many of you exaggerate things. Sure UVC is dangerous, but it isn’t going to kill when you shine it on you. Exposure time is a important factor, for both skin and eyes, and it’s not like people will sit and watch the light for hours.
Did you watch the bigclive video on youtube? He exposes himself to 20W uvc lamp that produces ozone for minutes.
And he was talking about a concert in south korea where some idiots put UVC lights on the stage and people that were close experienced bad pain in the eyes for a few days, but they didn’t die or go blind.
How come nobody has problems with 20.000 lumens lights? It’s not like they are safe to shine them in your eyes either Smile

Is this 3535 led any good? How does it compare to Klaran?

I don’t know. Your guess is as good as mine.
Just pointed out the announcement of an X80 with 275nm UV-C emitters on the other forum.
It was not on the Acebeam website. The one shown there is an X80 with 365nm Nichia leds.
