Traffic LIDAR is infrared and the UV coating wont affect it. If you aren't getting good readings maybe it is too low. The instructions say to mount high. I put mine on the visor or behind the rearview mirror

I know this respone is late but better than never....

i not that experenced with radar detectors but try to place where ever you can higher is better for police cars with k or ka band but in NZ(New Zealand) we have photo radar that has a low freq Ka band that is facing towards the road at under 45 degree angle. for this you would need to place the radar lower to get better range. So decide on what type of radars you are likely to run into and then decide where to mount the valentine one then consult a tinting company if the can cut a strip of coating out where you want to mount the valentine one. but as the valentine is a very good radar it might be able to go through the coating and only minimise the distance by a little bit but i would try it in a car without the coating then with the coating to see the difference and if it is to much or a problem then you could always mount the V1 on the front of the car then use a concealer display that can be purchased from V1's website

What does a slime block do

You may be talking about what Schneider calls a hydrophobic coating. Schneider uses the coating on their B + W filters to reduce the adhesion of particles and water drops to the filter surface.

Can my thermal transfer (TT) printer print on any label?

The answer is no. The labels must be specifically coated with a thermal transfer overprint. Most flexo printed labels have a UV varnish to protect them, that does not print very well in a thermal transfer printer. You must let your label printer know before the labels are made that you need a thermal transfer overprint and no UV coating.

What solar charger will work with the UV-5R ham two way radio?

Not directly. You'll need a regulator to get the output of the solar panel to the right voltage and current of the UV-5R. Even then without proper circuitry, you'll ruin the battery in the radio.

How long should it take to charge my iPhone using a solar charger?

Solar chargers imply you could hold your USB devices complete of juice, without having to rely on a mains power supply, or maybe a battery ?C while utilizing a sustainable supply of power. A brand new wave of chargers has come onto the marketplace. Some are ultra-portable, pocket-sized choices, even though other individuals are larger, more powerful set-ups that you could take on camping trips or anywhere where mains electricity is tough to come by.When you are in search of the appropriate solar charger, look at what you??re charging with it. An iPhone can charge twice the speed as a Samsung Galaxy, one example is, so owners with the latter would wish to look at a charger using a higher, quicker Wh output. By far the most straightforward way to examine them can be a ratio of energy to smartphone battery life, or Wh output. Around 10Wh is sufficient for a slower charge (as an example, 12 watts requires 1 hour and 50 minutes to charge an iPhone 6), although 40-50Wh is usually a super-quick power-up. Using the solar chargers, genuine sunlight is required. Nevertheless it does not matter if it is overcast - it is the UV rays which give the chargers life.

Here I introduce one for you that I love :, hope you like it.

In the past when film was still king and I was using it I had always used a UV or a Polarized lens cover. Now in the DSLR world I've been told that I should not use a non rated DSLR lens cover. Is there...

Without specific reference to the D90, the following applies to almost all dSLR's: Skylight filters (UV) are fine, but avoid using auto white balance. Polarisers can prevent the autofocus system from working, but the more expensive circular polarisers are usually OK although don't produce quite the same effect as linear polarisers.
