Not Just Violet, But Ultraviolet
This pocket-sized mini-flashlight has (9) 405nm ultraviolet LEDs and myriad uses, from checking U.S. currency to working the door at your ultra-hip downtown clubs, spotting radiator and transmission fluid leaks, mineral identification, and (yes, it's true) locating lost scorpions in the dark. Measures approx 3-3/4" long x 1-1/8" dia with knurled sections so you won't lose your grip, and a wrist strap in case you do. You supply (3) "AAA" batteries and the scorpions.

Don't Move!
Our wireless motion-sensing light has (7) bright white LEDs in a 3-1/8" dia mirrored face that throws light approx 15 feet. This makes it great for small rooms, large closets or gigantic doll houses. Housing is 4-3/4" x 4" x 2-1/8" in white plastic on a pivoting turntable that rotates 360 degrees. Detects motion within 10 feet, stays lit for approx 60 seconds, but also has an on-off switch. Battery housing (you add a quartet of "AA"s) is gasketed for water resistance. Includes mounting hardware. Made by i-Zoom®.

Suit Your Soil
Grow a beautiful garden full of plants that love your soil! It's easy if you know your soil's pH, and we have a gauge to help you! Stick the probe into moist soil for the pH to register in a separate 4" x 2" x 1" gauge box on the end of a 26 inch cord. That lets you read the gauge without having to lay on the bug and worm covered ground to see it! A needle indicates the pH on a scale of 3.5-9, and you get a list of which plants like which pH levels.
