This UV Monkey offers ample warning if you’re in danger of over-cooking your sensitive skin with too many of those nasty ultraviolet rays. Man. Of course if you’re a ginger haired person that means not getting too close to the television, but for the rest of us, outdoors now becomes a much safer place. $9.99.
This small keyring gadget is like your own personal space monkey. The UV Monkey will assist you by checking UV levels so that you know when to charge solar devices – and when to protect your skin. Once exposed to sunlight, the center will change to different shades of purple to indicate increasing levels of UV light (darker means higher level of UV). The UV Monkey can indicate 4 different ranges of the UV Index (Index 1-2, Index 3-5, Index 6-8, Index 9-11).
