Olight is offering the i3UV EOS for "Free" again for Mother's Day, today May 8th only while supplies last.

They have offered this in the past, and I know its not technically free since you pay $5 shipping, but these are well built little lights and they make great gifts.

In the past shipping was fairly fast as well.

Happy Mother's Day and Stay Safe!

Tons of ignorance in the thread about UV lights.

Useful for examining currency, documents (passports), minerals and rocks, as well as science fun. However, the shorter wavelength version works better (though the LEDs are less efficient):

This is a UV light (aka blacklight), not the handy flashlight from the last deal. This is pretty much worthless unless you're trying to gross yourself out or charge up glow in the dark things. Apparently people also use them to find scorpions down south as well.
Political idiocracy aside, this is not the effective UVC, which while not yet 100% proven on COVID-19, has been used since mid-1900's in medical and agro-tech purposes to deactivate microorganisms.

UVC, at the 200 to 280 nm wavelengths, essentially breaks apart DNA. To be effective, the light source must be powerful, and close enough to the organism to 'kill' it. In primitive terms, think of hitting a fly with a flyswatter, who's not dead just yet but you know how it's going to end. The longer the direct UVC exposure, the quicker until it meets its fate.

Fortunately this is not UVC.

USE DEVICES WITH UVC WITH EXTREME CAUTION. If you look directly at a UVC bulb, or hold close to your skin while on, in a matter of seconds you can cause permanent vision damage and/or give yourself cancer. Or try to swallow a bulb like a sword for the next social media challenge; I'll look for your name in the next Darwin Awards.

Another way to think of it is like this:
UVC, like X-Rays, irradiates everything it comes into contact. When you go to the dentist, you're outfitted with a heavy lead apron (with a giant x-ray gun pointed just below your brain) and everyone else runs out of the room before they flip the switch. Professionals know how to handle, and stay clear of things like this or you'll regret it for the rest of your life.

If you're interested in building your own irradiation chamber, like what they have in hospitals to re-use masks and other PPE, you can follow the instructions here, which is backed up by several scientific sources:
https://makezine.com/projects/bui...-covid-19/

Costs between $50-$100 depending on what size chamber you want, and you can save tons of money on lysol by tossing everything from masks to gloves (not latex), keys, mail, tote bags, headphones, credit cards, cash, etc etc in here. A nice way to spend several hours at home on a new project too....
If only we could figure out a way to get this light into our bodies!

Edit: Do not eat this light Smilie

They did this deal on Black Friday last year and I picked one up. It's a decent little light. I carry it at work pretty regularly.

Yup, not a typical flashlight at all. I use mine to charge my dogs glow in the dark toy and it works extremely well.

I've gotten in on 2 of these deals, great little lights. I carry them as backups when running at night, bright as hell for their size. The UV one should be fun for scorpion hunting.

I can vouch for the quality of this great little light. I kept it on my keychain and it was really helpful whenever I had to look at something in the engine bay at night. The only thing is that to turn off the light you have to unscrew the head from the base a little, and with the constant movement of being in my pocket etc, one day the head just fell off somewhere and I wasn't able to find it. I'm trying to think of a solution to prevent this from happening again, so if anyone has any ideas.

Just bought the replacement light though

Olight does this a few times a year. I got the i3E EOS last time and it is a solid light for $5. It runs on a single AAA and it is surprisingly bright. Pic attached. While this is for the i3UV EOS, it probably is about the same value if you need a UV light.

Aww man, not the regular light. Good deal OP nonetheless. I love the regular one from the last deal, super light and convenient. I've had a a bunch - Surefire Titans, sidekick and a bunch others like Fenix AAs. The $50 Titan broke instantly (no more high setting) when my niece dropped it from waist height.The little keychain Olight is the best light regarding price and performance, also easily replaced should anything happen.
