Rated 1 out of 5 by from I wanted a small touch to check bank notes and this looked ideal. However it has a SILLY arrangement to turn it on. One push turns it on push it again and flashes push a third time and it flashes faster one last push it it turns off. Whoever thought of that idea must have shares in batteries. Mine only lasted a few days before the batteries where completely dead. As it was attached to my keys (it IS a key ring) it must have got turned on and stayed on until the batteries went flat. Why not have a touch that only comes on when you push the button?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I have to agree with Bob. The switch is an illogical sequence. As an electronics engineer I suspect the device was originally designed for use with a white light LED and modified. However, the UV function is useful and the size is ideal for a keyring. Shame about the switch.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not that great This keyring torch is pretty useless. It's so dull it barely seems as though it's on and the target area is so small you can only view an area the size of a pea when you get the chance. I do not recommend it unless you intend on using it somewhere totally void of light.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No too impressed In my line of work fake notes are always an issue. Saw this and thought I'll give it a try. Ridiculous switch set up and shocking battery life, as a toy fine but not good in a practical way.

Hi, I have had a dye put into my car air con as it it leaking. This dye shows up under UV light and will reveal the leak. Can you say if your UV keyring torch will show this dye so that I can find the source of the leak? Cheers Alwyn
