I use it as a stain remover. UV is effective for some stains such as curry (turmeric) and also tomato based sauces which proves very difficult to remove. I've found that if you expose these stains to sunshine within several hours it will remove them completely. Sunshine isn't always available when or where I need it and this torch works for that purpose perfectly. For a small spot, 5 to 10 minutes and the stain is gone!
The only drawback would be the 3 AA batteries that are required, but I managed to fit a 26650 battery inside which although is a tighter fit, you get a much brighter torch and longer battery life.

2nd I purchased this light but was going to return it because we can't see anything left from our dog so I thought it didn't work. However, after reading another reviewer say that he used it in his bathrooms, I just used it in my teenage boys bathroom and WOW it is horrific. I am now keeping the light to use to check how well they are going to clean that disgusting bathroom.
3rd I confirmed that my dog is perfect and my kids are gross!
Oh and bonus, I found out one of the dogs lifted his leg on my recliner. Thanks a lot, Oscar, you jerk.
P.S. I tried the glasses that came with the light and they don't really make a difference. You don't need them at all. I don't even know where they are now. I bet Oscar took them. Jerk.
Fantastic performance. Portability and Easy to operate as well as safe battery operation compared to old Black lights with mains operation.
I'd also like to share the best remedy I've found for treating pet urine. I've used all sorts of shampoos and enzymes and this works best for me. Soak up as much straight urine as possible right off the bat. If it's dried, take 1 part vinegar and 2 parts water and soak the stain. let sit for 10 minutes or so then take and soak up all the liquid that you can using multiple dry towels till no more liquid will come up. coat the area in baking soda and let dry for 1 or 2 hours. Vacuum up. I've also heard of doing it the other way around, but found that getting the baking soda too wet, made it a nightmare to get out of your carpet. If it still smells or shows up with black light repeat - also, DO NOT use hot water! Always use cold water when dealing with urine. I learned all this the hard way, let me save you some headaches.
Yes, you can see everything. Yes, you will be horrified to see how dirty your house really is. And not just carpet. I see liquids running down my kitchen cabinets. Those spots in my carpet where I used Resolve carpet cleaner and sucked it up with a wet dry vac, but didn't rinse the slot out with water too ended up glowing bright white. I'll post lots of pics.
Pee shows up bright yellow. Cat puke shows up easier to see, but doesn't really glow. Old spots show up dull yellow. During the day, the yellow glasses that came with it offset the purple lighting, making the flashlight look like daylight. At night, you can see spots better without the glasses, or put them on and its like daylight. The glasses could make it easier to see in some situations, and harder in others.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this light one bit. It seems to work just fine, and feels well built. And the dozen or so bills I spent buying it seem very reasonable, especially with free Amazon Prime 2 day shipping. Buy it!!!
Works best in total darkness.
Illuminates dog and cat urine stains dramatically and clearly, spots must be dry, the older stains and spots are immediately apparent with this flashlight.
Do the glasses help identify pet stains? Yes, but I did not find any stains with the included glasses that were not apparent without the glasses, so I consider the amber-tinted glasses to be completely optional and unnecessary.
This is identical in every way to another UV LED Flashlight, with the only difference being that this one comes with the glasses and batteries. If you would be buying AA batteries with the other flashlight, then the price is also pretty much the same.
I tested it to see if I could find rodent/mouse runs or points of entry to the house, garage, basement and it's not outstanding for that. I also tested it on spiders and they do not show up as well as scorpions.
Throws a nice wide beam so you can see more of the carpet than narrow beamed units like the PeeDar. Broader and brighter is better for sure.
Would I recommend it? YES Does it live up to the description in the listing? YES
Solid aluminum construction, sealed against rain and sleet, I would not consider it to be submersible.
Watch the video and see the test and comparison for yourself. Compare with the identical Escolite and the smaller PeeDar. It's a winner.
There is no 'one-size-fits-all' wavelength, so don't expect CSI results with this. Different specialties require different wavelengths, and some lights include filters to remove undesirable ones, to narrow the wavelength of what the flashlight emits. There is always some overlap of wavelengths of different UV bulbs. The LEDs on my computer case fan actually emit some UV, but it gets washed out by more visible light from the same bulbs.
The included glasses are not only to help protect your eyes but to provide more contrast. I bought this light along with UV leak detector fluid to diagnose my car's A/C. This light is do bright I probably won't need the glasses to spot them.
Probably bonus fun for halloween, checking for fake money at home, etc.
This little gem illuminates the entire engine bay, and doesn't even require the amber glasses that it comes with. These leaks just pop out at you without even trying to hunt them down. Makes my work so much easier when I don't have to fumble with wires and hot UV bulbs.
I fully recommend this product to any mechanic who deals with tracking down refrigerant leaks. 100%
