    Nitecore CU6 reviews

    CU6 Chameleon LED Flashlight with Ultraviolet Light is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One versatile light The ultra violet function is of value in mineral exploration, discovery of insects, and blood tracking as well as in Carpet cleaning. The flash strobe function is a fabulous locator for emergency use in rescue situations. The High intensity light strobe is blindingly useful to dis-orient an attack of any kind- man or animal. For signaling, the colored - blue and green lights are handy, and for preservation of night vision the Red is indispensable. The flashing Red/blue as a first responder has been helpful to move traffic. All around, this light has replaced nearly every other portable light I've owned. A great gift I am still discovering new uses for.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great flashlight! Within 5 minutes of using the UV light, I found my first ever scorpion on a night hike! The UV is bright, but not as bright as you would expect. I guess it's difficult to make them bright, because so many I've seen are a lot less bright than this, but it's quite effective. The white light is plenty bright for night hiking. I found myself using levels 2 & 3 the most (out of 5). Any brighter was too bright for the trail. The colored LED's are very dim, but good for reading maps, close-up work, etc. Don't expect to hike by them. The light spread is very bad, like you would expect from any clear LED - not smooth at all. They're just an extra because there was room for them in the head. Overall, it's a very good night hiking light. I haven't found a better UV. Those many-LED UV's are no good - usually just under UV and cast a lot of purple glow, which decreases contrast in what you're trying to see.
