We all know pets are disgusting. I mean, they just are!

I got to try the LED UV Flashlight from RAVPower, and – as suspected – I realized my carpets are spotted with numerous stains from my pets.

When you live with cats and dogs, it’s handy to have a UV flashlight so you know exactly where to clean after you thought you cleaned everything … and didn’t.

Sigh …

You may not think you need a UV light to locate stains, but trust me, you do. (Unless you’d rather just not know!)

More about the UV Light and External Battery Charger from RAVPower

This is a pocket, 2-in-1 device so it’s both a:

  • UV Light and
  • portable phone charger/external battery pack.

The UV flashlight can be used to spot stains our pets leave on the carpet, floors, furniture or walls that may not be visible otherwise (but still cause an odor).

The 3200mAh external charger/battery can be used to charge your phone or other device. I use it to charge my Android.

The product uses “iSmart” technology that automatically detects and delivers the optimal charging current, according to RAVPower.

The RAVPower UV flashlight/portable charger is currently on sale on Amazon for $19.99 (normally $29.99). Click here. Use coupon code THATMUT1 to save an additional 25% off at checkout.

Who really needs a UV light + external charger combo?

Yes, it does seem like an odd combo!

But when you think about it, they’re both useful tools to have on hand.

You know, when you’re staying at a hotel and don’t want to bother searching for another outlet to charge your phone? (Because seriously, there’s never enough outlets.)

Instead, you could just use your external charger.

And going with the travel theme, you could also use the UV light to inspect your hotel room, but some things are just better left unseen! 🙂

What I like about the RAVPower UV flashlight

I like that the product is slim and sleek, so it’s easy to throw in a purse or even a pocket. It’s lightweight, and according to RAVPower, the actual dimensions are 3.8” x 1.2” x .9”.

The UV light is powerful, and it easily showed me where all of my pets’ (many) stains were. The product is well made and doesn’t “rattle” like some cheaper products do. I suspect it will last a long time.

Pet owners who could benefit the most

A UV light can be helpful for anyone with pets (or let’s face it, kids too!). I especially think it could be helpful for finding “hidden” odors from:

  • Puppies in training
  • Temporary foster dogs or foster cats (Been there!)
  • Visiting animals if you do a lot of pet sitting
  • Dogs or cats that tend to “mark” in the house
  • All CATS, because cats are the worst!

Unfortunately, after using the UV light I am now aware I have quite a few pet stains on my carpets! Good thing I also have a couple of stain/odor removers on hand.
