Tattu U3S UV Flashlight 365nm Black Light Torch Rechargeable Blacklight 10W Ultraviolet LED Lamp with Micro USB Charging Cable

Alright. Please read the entire following message on what you MAY do for the corono virus.

I have ordered a UV flashlight to kill germs on surfaces without the need for cleaners. I can't speak about effecdtivness first hand because my microscope (yes I ordered one) has not come yet.

However, It says is puts out a wavelenght 365nm. I found out through my reading that 200nm to 400nm wavelengths are highly effective at killing germs.

You have to use eye protection. You do not want to shine that light directly into your eyes.

It is about 60 dollars...

when my microscope comes I will try to test this. Do you want to wait for the results though? One use is cleaning incoming mail Technical Parameters:Brand: TATTUMaterial: High quality Aluminum alloy, endure long time daily using.Brightness: 100 Lumens.Emitter Type: LED.Emitter Color: UV(Ultraviolet) Light, 365nm range.Emitting Modes: High/Low/Strobe/SOS.Number of Emitters: One.Lifespan: 100,000 hours.Switch Type: Press.Sw... 03/03/2020

Slice 10495 Every Day Carry (EDC) Folding Knife, Ceramic Blade Lasts 11x Longer than Steel, Finger Friendly, Durable, Right & Left Handed, Compact, Convenient, Built to Last, Easy Easy Blade Change

Hey folks. So I have quite a few things to review.

I have some cool stuff to review though! I will put the reviews on both The Suburban Experimentalist and The Suburban Man pages!

I have a Dell All in One computer, that has a 27" monitor, an i7 processor and 16 gigs of ram that I can process 4K video on for the first time in 10 years.,

An Epson EF100 laser projector that is almost HD that comes with Android smart TV that I had been watching movies on my ceiling with,

An electronic measuring device for radon in your home that you can use without paying for a test.

Finally yesterday, I got something I find very innovative. Something Slice calls an every day carry, which it is someone who opens boxes a lot.

It is very small and is folding, so it fits right in your pocket. It has a ceramic blade that won't cut you, but cuts boxes right open. It is small and it is awesome! if it had blades that would cut rope and other things, it would be an everyday carry for a camper, or prepper. It is totally awesome! Looking for an EDC Folding Knife that can withstand the rigors of every day use? Our EDC Folding Knife is a sleek, modern interpretation of the classic folding knife design. A rugged, thoroughly functional EDC knife, it can tackle routine cutting tasks on a wide variety of materials, from corruga...
