    question
    is the UV coating on my glasses good enough to protect my eyes from backscatter UV light?

    That should be not a Problem, at least for my understanding of the glasses and the UV protection.

    The "problem" with UV Lights is, if you do not recognize that it is a UV light or the UV light is on (when i.e. the Woods filter is in use) you could harm your eyes if you look directly in the beam, that has a high intensity. I think Henry described it well in on the HDS order page to this UV LED.

    The HDS UV literally saved my ass at Apache Lake this weekend. There was a scorpion relaxing on my camp chair. Little bastard didn't realize it was MY chair and I don't share! Lot's of the little critters around.

    I suppose a UV flashlight is essential EDC gear for anyone living in the desert southwest. I also really love that double barrel holster.

    @hogo

    Great videos! I must say I did not expected that you see scorpions that great when they are UV illuminated. Really impressing!

    Unfortunately the woods lenses are out of stock. I guess now I would buy a UV light with woods lens....

    I believe you can still purchase a HDS UV light with a Woods lens. If you read the description on the UV LED emitter it says it comes with a Woods lens.

    Yes, the UV lights ship with a Woods lens installed as the standard configuration.

    Just placed an order. I don't have any real use for one but that cool factor is a 10.

    I am also curious. I ordered an UV Rotary on Tuesday - or Monday?? - don't remember anymore.

    But I will check the sourrounding area with this lights. Maybe I find creepy creatures, Hobbits, Gobblins, Orks or Uruk-hai's? But at the end there will be only a few glibbery snails.

    And finally I have a cool light to cure UV adhesive.

    Hogo,
    Just thought,
    I ordered the rotary uv with a sapphire lens.... (creature of habit)... 🤔
    Is it possible to get a woods lens separately from Henry, or do I need to send the light back for the woods lens and re calibration and if not, what are my options? As I realize I should have ordered with the woods lens as standard.

    @Hogo
    Only for sure. When I ordered the UV HDS this week I did not have the possibility to select the woods lens. Only in the descripton this lens was stated. It is important for me this lens is build into the light, even if the UCL was selected (there was only the choice UCL and Sappire Lens).

    It does say this on the site...

    This LED comes with a special Woods Glass lens instead of the normal ultra-clear glass lens.

    So hopefully it's standard.

    I programmed my UV HDS light as outlined below. The reason I removed low from the D lumen setting is that I could not see that the light was on at this setting without having the light either very close to a white paper or very close to a florescent object. I wanted button lockout enabled for the same reason.

    Lumens:

    A - Max
    B - Medium (turn on)
    C - Medium/High (two clicks after on)
    D - High (three clicks after on)

    Features:

    Turn on preset - off
    Auto turn off - off
    Button lockout - on
    Locator flash - off
    Pseudo momentary - on
    True momentary - on
    Burst - off
    Menus - off

    My use for the light will be to primarily locate fluid leaks in my vehicles. I purchased an assortment of florescent dye from Tracer products for this purpose.

    My light will still take a while until it reaches me. But it is not because HDS is that slow.... it is the shipping time

    But when I have it I hopefully will have the time to take some Pictures.

    Lacking Scorpions, for those with access to a USA $100, it is imo one of the best ways to assess the function of a UV light, at different brightness levels. The Red Fluorescing strip is much dimmer than the other colored strips on lower denominations

    The tube claims to be, but is not actually 365nm, it wonít fluoresce the red strip on a US 100, the other two above will.

    Both the Convoy and the Jetbeam were able to fluoresce all of the currency notes in my test group. ... It's faint with the Jetbeam, but detectable. If I move the light to within 3 inches, the strip is easily visible.
    great to hear there is an AAA option with a true 365nm UV, even if it is very low power compared to the 18650 models
    Euro Bills also have some wonderful colors:

    2mm ZWB2 filter reduces the transmittance at 365nm to 75%
    In some applications, I believe it is helpful NOT to use a visible light filter with a UV light because it allows an operator to see the blue light reflection when the UV light is ON. Of course filters are great for eliminating visible light from a UV source.. it just requires an intelligent operator to remain vigilant about the On state of the light.

    And, I believe it is always prudent to wear UV blocking eye protection, especially when using a UV light on close range targets.

    As much as don't like lanyards, i think hanging some sort of fluorescent bead on a UV light would be very useful.

    I haven't done any real testing with my light yet but so far, I really like it. I chose to get the rotary and am happy with my decision since it's not always obvious what mode it's in or if it's on at all. For me, the rotary is just easier. Now I just need to find things in my house that fluoresce under UV light!...
