Look i also have a review of the Wurkkos WK30 - Semi Picture Heavy - Now has beam shots

First Impressions:
First expressions are good, a 5000k LHD351D with 90 CRI nice flood and good color, a 620nm red, and in my opinion the best part a LG 395nm led, I know 365 is considered better but for my application (Rock hunting) they’re pretty much equal. It runs off of a 26650 battery which comes included, the one included is 5000mah, 18650 or 21700. Micro usb rechargeable on the flashlight. It has an illuminated button which shows battery life green is good red is low blinking red is very low, and on the UV mode it turns blue. The beams definitely are more floody from the shallow reflector. You can also use it without a battery plugged in.

Build:
It feels nice in the hand there is no knurling, but there are things to hold on to. It is shorter than my other lights but still feels good. It has a lanyard hole and come with one which can even fit my large hands nicely.

UI:
The UI for what it has to to is pretty good. 1 click for white click to change modes, Eco, Low, Mid, High/Turbo, it has memory. 1 click and hold brings it to white on Eco then you can go through normally. 2 click for red, click to change modes Low, Mid, High. You can also double click in red and white for strobe modes, white has strobe, SOS, and beacon. Red has strobe and police, alternates red and white. 3 click for UV click to change modes, Low, and Mid. In UV you can double click to enter white memory. 4 clicks for lock out, will blink twice when you try to turn it on, 4 click again to get out. Long press off.

Spec:
I sadly do not have any method of testing lumen output but here are manufactures specs
White: 5lm, 120lm, 400lm 1200lm 5 min + 600lm
Red: 5lm, 60lm, 200lm
UV: 100mw, 2000mw

Suggest you make it clear the lumens you are listing are manufacturer specs, not measured.

Not sure if you know how yet, but please try to get the pics in the post.

Might want to try to organize the write up - Impressions/Specs/User Interface/Pics/Conclusion (etc.).

It's all good! I would be interested in how UV is used for rock hunting -- might be nice adding a little blurb bout it in the OP.

You can see some pics of UV minerals here http://budgetlightforum.com/node/58969 . The second post in that thread is list of things you can do with your UV light.

I really like the light too.

I have a few fluorescents from Franklin, NJ area. Need to try this out on them.

Please LegoBoy let us know the minerals you are shining on when you do your test.

Where are you collecting? Is it known for fluorescents?

Thanks

Oh boy, forgot bout that thread - I read it back then. That's interesting. I was told though the police use a special UV and the LED UV I built up was not the right type - dunno what they wanted, but I think they use a larger light, and lights up an entire room, so guess we can't do that with LED's? I couldn't find out what the exact problem was though...
