Customer Questions & Answers

Is this good for detecting pet urine, and other types of urine and bodily fluids (e.g. hotel inspection)?

Customer comments vary. Perhaps Home Depot representative can clarify or recommend alternative product.
Asked by: AnnieS
Yes. I bought a UV LED flashlight by Ray O Vac for just that purpose. It works so well you can even see what remains of stains that you thought were thoroughly cleaned up.

Customer Reviews

UV LED Flashlight is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for finding scorpions I bought 2 of these for finding scorpions. I've had them for nearly a year now and I am very pleased with them. They produce a small amount of visible light along with the UV and this is a plus, because in very dark areas, it affords a small degree of visibility.This flaslight does a great job in finding scorpions as well as pet urin. Scorpions stand out without a doubt at a relatively long distance (easily 20 feet if it is very dark). The only complaint I have is that the battery life is short. I generally replace them after about an hour of use to maintain good brightness. This is a very good product for spotting scorpions. I am buying 2 more to stage in other areas in my house.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piffy and very limited UV light. I bought this UV light to help me illuminate things that I otherwise wouldn't be able to see in normal light. To that end it is only about 20% effective at doing so. One of the things I wanted it to help me identify was dog urine and other excretions left on the floor so I can more effectively clean them up. In this application, this light is pretty useless. Not only is it too dim to do any good, but I'm in agreement with other reviews and articles I've read that UV wave length has a huge part to play in the effectiveness of the light output overall. I've noticed that this light, because of its unknown spectrum output, is pretty poor at highlighting anything but the blatantly obvious like white and iridescent objects and the occasional water stain. (Did help show the water stains on the roof from some major water leaks.) This light simply doesn't appear to be bright enough or emit the proper light spectrum to be more applicable across a wider range of identifiable stains. To compare and see if this light was accurate; I bought a somewhat comparable CFL black light which I had exceedingly great success with. Not only did it highlight everything the little UV LED flashlight failed to see, but it also highlighted the few things the UV flashlight did just 10X better. I was able to see all of the urine stains on the carpet and realized that not a single one of the chemicals that I have labeled as carpet cleaning agents have been doing squat to clean up the stains. I was also able to see the most recent and newest additions which I was shocked about since we had given the culprits back to their owner months ago and gotten a new dog. We thought she was doing great but it turns out she's been peeing on our clothing judging by the luminosity of the stains, it was easy to tell they were quite recent. This product clearly needs some more research and work not to mention significantly greater luminosity. If all you're looking for is something to party with than this could kind of do the job but don't expect much beyond 10 feet. Overall I was very disappointed with this light as it's the first flashlight I've bought in years that I actually returned for failing to perform.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Found the Cat Urine! Recently bought a house and was FREAKING out about the smell. I figured out it was cat spray... and knew i needed to address it... but where to start???? I had no idea where to look, i never owned a cat. I looked up online how blacklights could I.D. the spots but was skeptical that it would actually work.... Then i heard it had to be a specific wavelength of blacklight blah blah blah... Anyways, i got up one morning, zipped to the Depot and picked this up. It worked REALLY well. Newer stain looked like somebody poured glow paint on the carpet. Older stains (even those that had been "cleaned up") were fainter, but still noticeable. I now know where to focus my efforts.... outside of hating cats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Under Rated This product is great. I have purchased this for night time geocaching and UV related caches. It works like a charm. I was worried about getting this light for fear that it was going to be to "cheap" I lucked out as this is exactly what i have been hunting for. Dont let other reviewers scare you, this is a great buy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from What is the UV Wavelength I bought this to do an expereiment with UV, pet accidents, leaks, cleaning etc. I have 2 other UV Flashlights with wavelengths in 365-375nm and 395nm wavelengths. I am hoping to spot one in the 380-385nm wavelengths because this is the best wavelength to use for searching for pet accidents and the like. The only problem I have with this is I cannot find a spec that tells me what wavelength the UV portion is. Could someone let me know?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little UV light This is very inexpensive, and is equivalent to the inexpensive little flashlights that are so pervasive these days. It has an aluminum body and a three-AAA cell battery holder inside. The wavelength does emit some visible light, but I don't see that as an issue. I did find a number of stains in the carpet that were not visible in normal light. I had some fun going around the house and garden to find all kinds of fluorescent objects. I bought this to help find Tomato horn worms, so I'll have to wait until summer to see how well it works for that. For the price, this is a great little UV flashlight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and well made. I purchased this flashlight to charge up glow-in-the-dark fishing lures, which it does very well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from it makes light It's a flash light. I was pretty cheap but it was the only black light they had and I needed something to find scorpions.
