UV Headlamp

This 10w 365nM UV headlamp is powered by 2 x 18650 batteries

The headlamp can be aimed straight ahead 0º, to straight down to the ground 90º ~ and anywhere in between. So you don’t have to nod your head to where you want the UV headlamp to illuminate!



UV headlamp FEATURES

  • Wavelength – 365 nM
  • Warranty – 12 months


All the usage applications as our UV flashlight range, but with the convenience of a hands free UV headlamp!

So whether you are fossicking for opals, looking for pet wee or mould, to checking the authenticity of currency, but want to have both hands available for the task, then our UV headlamp is for you!

We have included a 365 nm blacklight filter in this headlamp; meaning that all non-UV light emitted from the LED gets blocked. That gives a more pure UV light and contributes less glare to what you are viewing – so you can find what you are looking for more easily!

We do have a range of handheld UV Flashlights

If you want a handheld flashlight as well as or instead of the UV Headlamp, here are some links to them:

15W professional UV flashlight

5W UV flashlight

3W 365 nm UV light

3W 395nm UV light torch


What 365 nm UV headlamp is for

Dog and Cat pee/urine detection at this 365 nm wavelength. Dry urine will show easily on dark surfaces, fresh urine has a bluish look.

If you want maximum effect from “black light” reactive items, 365nm is the proper wavelength for this.

365nm UV flashlights will activate faint traces in fluorescent objects (without the visible purple seen in a 395nm UV flashlight).


Therefore 365nm is more suited to close-up work and faint detection.

365nm wavelength LED produces a near pure UV output which is the optimum frequency for UV fluorescence.

You will see far more detail and in a greater range of colours in gemstones than any other wavelength.


365nM UV generate less unwanted “Interference Light” and they may naturally appear weaker or more white compared to the visible purple 395nM version.
This can be misleading and should not be misinterpreted.
General rule of thumb is that the more visible UV light you see the less effective it will be for detailed, faint detection work.


This is how UV (Blacklight) wavelengths usually work:

  • 230~400 nm: Optical sensors, various instrumentation
  • 240~280 nm: Disinfection, decontamination of surfaces and water (DNA absorption has a peak at 260 nm)
  • 200~400 nm: Forensic analysis, drug detection
  • 270~360 nm: Protein analysis, DNA sequencing, drug discovery
  • 280~400 nm: Medical imaging of cells
  • 300~320 nm: Light therapy in medicine
  • 300~365 nm: Curing of polymers and printer inks
  • 300~400 nm: Solid-state lighting
  • 350~370 nm: Bug zappers (flies are most attracted to light at 365 nm).


Uses for the 365nM wavelength UV flashlight:

  • urine detection
  • faint traces of fungus
  • mould detection
  • leak detection in refrigerants
  • gemstone excitation
  • portable EPROM eraser
  • detecting head lice eggs
  • forensics, criminology
  • water pollution detection
  • security inks
  • archaeology
  • chemical probe testing, chemistry
  • biology
  • money checking, credit card checking
  • food checking
  • medical applications
  • Antique glass (uranium glass, vasceline glass)
  • Forged document detection
  • A/C coolant leak detection (using dye)
  • Carpet inspection
  • Bathroom inspection
  • Arson Investigation
  • Semen
  • Hotel room inspection
  • Mineral Hunting (diamonds, etc.)
  • Salmonella and Shigella bacteria detection
  • Contaminate inspection (clean environment)
  • Drivers licence UV markings
  • Dye penetrant inspection (NDI/NDT)
  • Magnetic surface analysis



Eye damage is guaranteed from careless use. These LEDs are manufactured to be almost invisible to the naked eye.

It is made for a specific purpose and should not be used by children or people unauthorised by you, the tradesman.

Invisible UV is particularly dangerous to the human eye because it cannot detect that damage is being done.

Our UV headlamp is not a toy and should be treated with all due respect!
