Thanks to the wonders of UV resin i got a super-cheap UV flashlight for curing it, but the thing didn’t last much. I don’t do this a lot, only occasionally, so a proper full expensive dedicated curing setup is a waste for me, and a not too expensive flashlight is not a bad idea, but I’d like to have one that won’t break down after a bit. Is there such a thing?

    I have a few UV lights my partner uses for curing resin. She said the one that works the best without smoking the resin is this unbranded 365nm 30W/10W light from Germany, $19.61 shipped: https://www.ebay.com/itm/403994731290

    I got it for leak checks. It’s similar to the Convoy (AliExpress) but includes the filter in the base price, was available on eBay and shipped faster, had a 21700 option, and was cheaper than everything else. ABS eyewear recommended.

    Edit: added more detail
