The new Streamlight Night Com UV is a specialty light for law enforcement that incorporates six UV emitting LED lights into a white light flashlight. The UV lights allow a police or security officer to verify the authenticity of a driver’s license, bank card, currency or other document.
The flashlight is about the same length as the company’s Strion flashlight, meaning it can be easily carried on a duty belt or inside a jacket pocket. It uses CR123A lithium batteries, which allows the flashlight to work even after sitting unused for weeks or months. Batteries are included.
The Streamlight Night Com UV has a single white-light emitting LED, which throws 115 lumens and 4200 candela in the “high” mode. In the “low” mode, white light output drops to 50 lumens and 1600 candela. I found that the white light was very bright, but was better for close up work than for illuminating things at a distance. It would not be my first choice for conducting a building search for a criminal, but it would certainly fill the roll as a backup light for this purpose.
