Nice tool
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Not something you use everyday but its better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

I bought this item on 3 separate occasions at 3 different stores and none of them worked.. Maybe it was the device or maybe it was my phone . This is the image I saw on my screen.

Horrible product
I'm pretty sure this would be a cool camera especially what I need it for in the line of work I do but this is the third borescope I bought brand new from home Depot where the camera doesn't work properly... All I see is just a fuzzy screen with a lot of lines going through it.. I seriously do not recommend buying this product. I love klein tools but I don't think they should continue making cameras .

I compared this borescrope with other more expensive kinds and this one beats them all for 4 main reasons....functionality, camera cable length, "battery", and most importantly price. Functionality: what I love about it is that you can take pics or videos of what your looking at and save them to your phone. You dont need to buy a special monitor or have special cables to simply view the image on a bigger screen. Camera Cable Length: you get about 115" inches of cable length for a very low price. Battery: the reason why I put battery in quotation marks is because it doesn't need a battery to operate. Instead it connects to your phone via USB C TYPE or MICRO USB....sorry appple. You dont need to worry about carrying AA or AAA batteries while on the job. I find it easier to use my phones battery thats easy to recharge instead of buying fresh AA/AAA from store. Price: I bought this borescope for about $37 new from home depot but it was on sale. If your going to download Klein app, dont use chrome because it wont ever download the app. I used Samsung internet app.

Great Borescope. Appropriate app can be downloaded from Klein Tools Website
I see lots of complains about the app not working for this model. The app for this model is not available in Google Play. Type " Klein ET16 apk" in google and download the apk file. You will see an icon/image like the one attached. Move the apk file to your phone and install and it will work just fine.

Works Great
My first experience with it was way better than expected. I used it with my samsung galaxy A51 cell phone and I had zero issues. As per the given instructions I downloaded the app from Klein tools website very easily and didn't have any problems. I had to use the scope inside of enclosed drywall and the picture was very bright and clear. The brightness dial for the lights worked as advertised. There's room for improvements as with anything but Im very satisfied with my purchase. One word of caution is READ the instructions. Its only 8 short pages. Biggest discretion is the outside of the box lists it as waterproof but the instructions clearly say "NEVER completely immerse camera in water or liquids". Everything worked great and it got me out of a jamb. Thank goodness.
