I ordered one ($5) when I got their promotional email just before Mother’s Day. Took a while to ship but when they gave me the tracking number, it arrived one day earlier than they said it would!

The funny thing was that I neglected to read carefully and didn’t realize that it was a UV light! D’oh!

Now I’ve got to find a use for it other than lighting up my Seiko watch dial and looking for protein remnants.

I’ll try when I’m back home. I presume the post can be drilled out and the compartement be glued back together?

Gotta say, I’m using this more than I thought I would. It’s great for inspecting how well areas have been cleaned, and generally for seeing an invisible, and sometimes surprising, part of the world right in front of me.

The green color, small size, good build quality, simple operation, good battery life, fun factor, and low price all combine nicely to prevent buyer’s remorse.

I looked like Hell (Oilight, Amazon, generic goggling around), couldn’t find any other colors for the normal white-LED i3 than basic black.

Not interested in Ti or Cu, heard rumblings of a blue one being available at one time (maybe), but that’s it.

If white ones would come in this green ano, it’s be killer. Really digging that color…

Yeah, I’m really liking the color too, although it might be good to keep the UV model with a unique color.

Purple would be nice.

buy a cheap black one, and swap the pills with the UV host whose color you like
