This flashlight lasts for only a few uses before the three AA batteries (triangle configuration) have to be replaced. Even with fresh batteries this flashlight still has to be shaken or smacked against the palm of your hand to get it to work—it dims randomly. The flashlight does shine brightly when it functions properly. I would agree with the product description that “this professional version is more rugged and durable then less expensive lights...” and the flashlight does have a nice solid weight and comfortable grip. However, none of this matters since its functionality is so flaky.

An unhappy home inspector...
By Thomas on 10/07/2014
A dim review of the Scorpion Hunter Reveal UV Flashlight. While it helped me identify the cat urine stains on the carpet it was NOT easy to use. I didn’t realize the battery-pack was the 3-battery triangle configuration which is notoriously glitchy. Even after I replaced the batteries I still had to shake it periodically or hit it against my other hand to obtain full brightness. What a pain. I’ve had flashlights with this battery configuration before and many of them had this same problem. Other than that it worked well (when it worked) and felt nice and solid in your hand. It was plenty bright at night in low light from other sources and with all lights off it works great and I never had to use yellow goggles to see the urine. I think it is over priced especially because of the problems I had with it. This would have been a better flashlight if the design was an in-line, 3-battery configuration. I wish the description stated what the battery configuration was because I would have continued looking. Regrettably, An unhappy home inspector.

Not what I expected
By Jim on 07/10/2014
It does the job ok I guess, but for the money, I expected a little more out of it. The one at Home Depot works just as well for half the price.
