The Atomic Beam Private Eye is a powerful flashlight that's able to detect potentially germ-filled messes that are invisible to the naked eye. Each flashlight has five regular modes that offer various levels of illumination, plus a UV mode that you can use to detect those otherwise invisible messes. This is a good flashlight to shine around a cat's litter box, on furniture that's frequently used by pets, on the mattresses in hotel rooms, and around any other places that could contain germs.

How It Works

When you turn off the lights and put this flashlight in UV mode, it's able to illuminate and reveal indoor messes that you wouldn't otherwise see. It does this by literally lighting each germ-filled area up, and when you're able to see each mess, you'll be able to effectively remove it. Of course, even when not turned to the UV setting, this flashlight can still be used as a source of white light, just as a standard one can be. One of the additional modes is actually an SOS mode that will alert others if you're in trouble while you're on the side of the road, or in some other potentially dangerous location.


  • Six Modes

    Besides the UV and SOS modes already mentioned, you'll have four other modes to choose from when you use this flashlight, including high, medium, low and strobe ( flashing).

  • Zooms in and Out

    Aside from offering you a choice of six modes, this flashlight will also allow you to zoom in and out. When you zoom in, you'll be able to see the object in front of you at up to 2, 000 times its regular size. Therefore, if you're cleaning up a mess that you've detected, you'll be able to see if you missed any minuscule spots.

  • 5,000 Lux

    The Atomic Beam Private Eye is super-bright, emitting 5, 000 LUX of light, while some standard flashlights don't even emit half that amount. This makes it an ideal choice if you happen to have to wander around in a completely dark room or outdoor area.

  • Black and Narrow

    Each of these flashlights comes in black, giving them all a sleek, professional look, and each is also cylinder-shaped, which means that it'll fit in a glove compartment well.

Positive Points

  • For Indoor and Outdoor Use

    The Atomic Beam Private Eye does a great job of detecting messes and providing you with enough light to see in dark rooms indoors, but it's also durable enough to use outdoors, too.

  • Promotes Health

    Since this flashlight will get rid of potentially unhealthy messes in any room of your home, it works to promote the health of you, your children and your pets. It'll come in especially handy around your toilet or your cat's litter pan, since it'll be able to detect leftover waste that the human eye can't see. It'll also detect food residue on your counter that could possibly give you food poisoning if it were to remain there.

  • Helps Eliminate Smells

    You've probably smelled disgusting smells in your home before that you weren't able to locate the source of, but fortunately, your Atomic Beam Private Eye can help you out with this. Its UV mode will help you quickly detect the source of any putrid smell, and once you've identified and removed the source, the unpleasant smell will be gone along with it.

  • May be Useful at Work

    In addition to being able to detect nearly-invisible messes, one of these flashlights will also detect counterfeit currency and identification. All you'll need to do is set the flashlight to UV mode, and shine it over each bill or ID card in order to determine its authenticity. If you work at a retail store, bank or restaurant at which bills and IDs are often passed to you during transactions, this flashlight could help you identify potential crooks.

Negative Points

  • Won't Fit in Pocket

    While one of these flashlights is fairly compact, especially in comparison to some bulky, square flashlights, one drawback is that it isn't small enough to fit into an average-sized pocket. You also won't be able to strap it to your head without difficulty. That means you'll have to either hold it in your hand or carry it in a backpack or handbag if you want to bring it with you somewhere without using it continuously.

  • No Colored Light

    With six modes and a flashing strobe light, it's a bit surprising that this flashlight doesn't offer the option of colored light, but that's not the case. Regardless of what mode you use, you'll only get black or white light, and you'll only get the former if the flashlight's on UV mode.

  • Requires Batteries

    You'll need batteries to run your Atomic Beam Private Eye, but it's not stated that batteries come with each flashlight. To get started with the light, you'll likely have to order your first set of batteries from a website independently, or go to a store and pick them up.

Critical Advice

Due to so many people circulating in and out, hotel rooms can contain a plethora of germs, so you should make sure you bring one of these flashlights to any hotel you'll be staying at. To look for potential bedbugs, it's best to lift the corners of each mattress and shine your flashlight underneath while it's in UV mode. Then, be sure to shine the flashlight all over the bed, including under the pillows, to check for unhealthy substances that a maid may have missed while cleaning.
