Ultra violet torch with 100 LED lights

Ultra violet torch with 100 LED lights

Ref: uv-100

{Summary}

Its large head (3 inches diameter contains 100 L.E.D. UV lights).

The effect is that you can scan large areas, e.g. walk around the house to see where your cat has urinated; look at a large painting in an art gallery (the beauty of UV light is that it's non-destructive); pick out uranium glass out of hundreds of items, find interesting rows of beads amongst hundreds.

Of course, it works fine for checking one banknote or one porcelain vase.

Power: one 18650 (supplied) with a battery charger (supplied).

Click on the picture above, see the security markings on an old (pre-2017) twenty pound note, the "20" shows up very clearly, the myriad of 'dashes' aren't so bright. To see a five pound note under each UV torch (which gives you a good idea as to how they compare) click here.


WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO MODELS?

UV-1 (3 watts), £39.50 incl. VAT

Good for 'general' use indoors, e.g. banknotes, standard items of porcelain or glass, paintings, prints, gemstones etc. This is so powerful it works fine in under normal indoor lighting.

UV-1-5W (5 Watts), £45.00 incl. VAT

The extra power works well under bright lights or outside in broad daylight, so powerful that you don't need to shade the item; also for wide-area use (paintings in galleries etc) where you can't get close to the item.

{Alternatives}

Of similar quality, see the UV-100. The UV-100 has isn't quite as good on 'wavelength' (hence the cheaper price) but is as bright as uv-1-5W above and so will illuminate a large area - see the pictures.

{Effectiveness}
Hold it about one inch from the item, the light will cover an area of about 1.5 inches. It helps to use this in the dark. These are hugely popular on the internet because of their low price, and to the human eye it's much brighter than our other UV lights (which makes people go, "wow, it's so bright it MUST be good!") - but the amount of actual UV light (which the human eye CAN'T see) is so small (i.e. the wavelength is too long) that it is of limited use.
