I bought this model together with the 395nm version, to compare directly with each other, and also with my trusty Inova X5 UV, Both the Tank007 models have much brighter beams than the X5, with the 365nm model especially impressive, as there is next to no visible light output. Both the 395 model and the X5 produce a fair bit of visible light.
When it comes to testing, on banknotes, passports and other official documents, the 365 model shows things that don't show up under the longer 395 wavelength.
Both Tank007 models are beautifully made, very well finished, feel tough. A nice touch is that their on/off tail buttons are fluorescent, and also luminous. My 365 seems to be a newer model than the 395, as it has two brightness modes, selectable by a quick half-press on the button while the light is on.
I can highly recommend both versions, but the 365 version takes top place.
Helpful service above the level expected

I can't review the torch I bought because I haven't used it yet. However, I can review the service I received from Stewart (Sales) who, I felt, went out of his way to try to answer my queries re: appropriate choice of UV torch for my particular requirements.

Tank007 UV LED Torch (365 nm) 1 Watt
Monday, 7 March 2016 | Paul
Tank007 arrived promptly & nicely packed in its box in a jiffy bag. The requested personalised engraving all correct - torch costs enough to make this worthwhile. Functionally, I've tested this on a couple of denominations of banknotes and postage stamps revealing things I've not seen before! I haven't yet had the opportunity to use the torch when photographing insects which is the main reason for experimenting with it - waiting for spring! Rotating the centre section alters the beam width - not especially linear illumination as it still seemed brighter in the middle, but still useful and I may see better results in the field. Every home should have one!

Our second order. Bulk purchase of 25 uv torches. As cheap as the Far East but delivered in 48 hrs. Superb and will definitely buy again.

Product was received in very quick time and was very well-packaged. The build quality of the torch appears to be first class.

The Tank007 is very well put together and has Japanese internal parts. A good bright light with very little 'flair' around the edges of illuminated objects when compared to the Inova X5. Though the X5 has a 365 to 400nm range compared to the Tank007 at 365nm, but in my opinion the Tank007 gives a clearer more defined illumination. Both torches need low ambient light levels to work well.
Excellent identification checker

Another great purchase from torch direct! Professional service. Quality Products. Every Time!
Well I couldn’t make my mind up which wavelength of UV light I wanted, so bought this alongside another!
Solid construction! Fits in one hand easily with a miniature design. Will not stand on button end, will stand lens down. Lanyard hole. Takes 1 x AA. Battery Supplied.
This 1 watt UV torch is great! Gives a good spot, but not sharp around the edges. This torch is harder to see to the naked eye and doesn’t light up a room as well, with it only being 1 watt, but will make relevant items fluoresce easily.
When using this to check identification, I tested it on my (UK) driving licence, revealing the rose, daffodil, thistle and clover in Colour! You can see the outline of the road. On the rear, you can see the crest and the tyre track gradating through colours.
This torch will show the UV marks on UK currency.
This Recommended for Door Supervisors and checking UK bank notes.
