With the matching dye, I was able to find a nicked hard line in my A/C so I could fix the A/C. This was well worth the money, considering the temp was pushing 98F and over 70% relative humidity. Only down side was NOT due to the product - I had to go hunting for the hardlines on my car's A/C (a 2000 Malibu).

Cheap, but it works

This product served it's purpose in a pinch, but if you want something that will last, pay the extra money for a higher quality light.

          Light will show leak when used with dye, but beam is very small and weak requiring you get very close to leak.

                Didn't work bad while it was functional about 3 uses 5-10 minutes each. It was best to use it in shady areas as it doesn't have great output, but did highlight areas where the refrigerant was escaping. would've been completely satisfied it would have lasted longer.

                Light stopped working after a few mintues of use. Returned it for another one. The light is very, very weak and you must use the glasses to see any dye at all. I bought another light with several LEDs and it was far brighter and could allow seeing much, much more of the dye. Some of tyhe leaked dye could not even be seen using the Autocraft light. Note: if you get another light, you will need these glasses or some like it.

                  the UV light is very flimsy, light is very dim which makes it difficult to use. After 5 minutes the lights stopped working exchanged it for a new unit with the same results 5 minutes and the lights stopped working.don't waste your time with this product spend a little more money on something that will work
