The Sirchie Mini Bluemaxx III Forensic Light Kit emits a high-intensity blue light (455nm) that can be viewed through the orange barrier filter goggles provided. The light is powered by two (2) CR123 type Lithium batteries and its light beam comes from a single, 3-watt LED (Light Emitting Diode) that is rated at more than 50000 hours of lamp life.
The Sirchie Mini Bluemaxx III Forensic Light Kit is excellent for locating and facilitating photographs of a variety of forensic evidence including physiological fluids (urine, saliva and semen) and latent prints enhanced with fluorescent powders or dyes. The hand-held, machined-aluminum, self-contained light source measures 5.25" (13.3cm) in length with a barrel of only 0.75" (1.9cm) dia. and weighs a mere 3.55 oz. (100.6g).
