The beam has a fairly narrow focus and unlike a traditional blacklight, most of the light produced by the UV Photon is just outside the visible spectrum (370 nm). In full darkness it will cause objects to fluoresce at distances of 20 feet or more. In bright daylight the effectiveness is greatly reduced, but is still usable at about 6-12 inches. The UV Photon Freedom Micro features a built-in "Covert" housing shield to protect your eyes from direct side exposure to the UV light (Not pictured, standard housing is pictured above).
For a lower cost alternative, our purple Photon lights work very well for fluorescence checking as well as making lighter colors appear bright. The purple lights are closer to what you might expect from a traditional black light, with a deep purple color in addition to the invisible UV light. For some uses, such as checking counterfeit money, we still recommend the pure UV Photon Freedom Micro as the visible purple light from the Purple Photons can make it difficult to see the fluorescent strip in American currency.
SPECIAL BONUS: Freedom Micro comes with a FREE hands-free multi-purpose Photon Clip and the new quick-release keyring! (an $8.95 value)
The Photon Freedom UV Micro also has all the features of the normal Freedom Micros! Ready for any daily need or emergency, the Photon Freedom Micro features simple, intuitive single-button operation to provide quick, easy access to the features you use most, with additional mode settings available only when you want them. "Smart circuit" technology gives you the light you need, when you need it. All it takes is a simple squeeze of the button to give you instant illumination at any time. With full-range brightness control, simply press and hold the button to dim or increase the light to the desired level. You can even turn the light on at the lowest level and gradually increase the brightness to give you just the amount of light you need to accomplish your task without disturbing your night vision or disrupting those around you. Four safety strobe functions (fast, medium, slow, & SOS) can be accessed, allowing you to use the Photon Freedom Micro as a beacon or strobe light. An additional "signaling" (Morse Code) mode can be accessed, with the light turning on only while the button is pressed and off when it is released.
The new Photon Freedom Micro is truly the easiest-to-use, most powerful, full-featured micro light available. The light is water resistant, with 24K Gold-plated contacts for superior corrosion resistance, and a glass filled polyurethane Case that is virtually indestructible. Its micro size (smaller than a U.S. quarter coin) and weight (under 7 grams), make it extremely portable. Comes with a manufacturer's LIFETIME warranty! Replaceable long-lasting lithium batteries are included. Every Photon Freedom Micro also ships with a FREE bonus Photon Clip and Quick-Release keyring!
IMPORTANT!: The Photon Freedom Micro is shipped in a "point-of-purchase battery protection" mode. To take it out of this point-of-purchase mode, simply press and hold the button until the light turns off (approx. 15-20 seconds).
