Recommended UV flashlight?

@aniedes asked me what light I was using for https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/136664681, and I don't know, b/c it was @chyroptera's light! What kind of light were you using, Andrea?

I suspect @damontighe and @tiwane can also recommend good UV flashlights.

Hi @kueda -It was a UVBeast Mini 365nm UV Flashlight!

The important thing is that it's 365nm, which has less purple visible light than most generic UV lights which are usually 395nm and more purple. The brand doesn't matter as much, although I do recommend this particular mini-UV light which I've had for a while--it's held up well and I'm unwittingly hard on my outdoor gear. Battery seems to last well too.

I use the same light as @chyroptera. I've only had it a few months but I like it quite a bit. Used it for this photo and you can see it in this photo. It attracted a moth!
