I live in Denmark, I ordered the torch on 17th March and it arrived on the 23rd of march thank you everyone at Torch Direct for a speedy service. As for the torch itself, I look forward to having it with me on the pennines this year and also when I'm out kayaking at night.

Tank007 UV LED Torch (365 nm) 1 Watt
Monday, 7 March 2016  | 

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

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.

Not only are the products first rate, but the service and efficiency are excellent too. Thank you.

Excellent service

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

365nm ultra violet
Thursday, 24 September 2015  | 

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.

Highly recommended

I've just received a very promptly supplied order. (Torchdirect are very good with Comms too, which is reassuring)
This is a 1xAA cell torch. Included was the torch, the box, a warranty card, two spare O rings, a lanyard and one AA cell. With dimensions of 95mm length & 15 mm diameter this is a very easy to carry and use torch. There is a raised chequering in the middle and near the cap, to aid grip.

Tail switch is a reverse clicky. Operation is press fully in to switch on. Momentary off is archived by pushing again half way. To switch off fully push the switch in. You can alternatively switch the torch on, then twist the end cap to switch off and on, instead. The tail switch below a green rubber textured cap. This cap is illuminous, so it will glow in the dark for a short while after being exposed to a bright light. The cap is raised so the torch can't be used for tail-standing! Not that I can see any reason to want to tail stand a UV torch…

I'm using this torch for checking £10, £20 & £50 notes. This unit is in the 365UV range, making it ideal for this purpose. On checking a £20 note, the £20 UV marking in the top centre of the note, was very visible. The UV colour flecks across the note were equally visible and the different fleck colours were also readily apparent.

This is a good UV torch ideal for counterfeit note checking. Highly recommended.

Great product and service

Brilliant bit of kit
Wednesday, 4 June 2014  | 

Cracking little product, ordered Friday, arrived Monday. So far, only tried it on banknotes and security marked personal items with excellent results. If everyone had one of these, the forgers would really squeak.
