Klein Tools Explains It All…

“Klein Tools’ new WiFi Borescope features a small, rugged camera and a 6-foot waterproof gooseneck to capture vivid images and video even when maneuvering around tough obstacles. Once the Klein Tools Borescope App is installed, professionals can quickly connect their smartphone via the built-in WiFi signal, making it easier to display, record, store and share the camera’s output.”

-Aaron Holcomb, product manager at Klein Tools

What’s The Big Deal?

Where to start? One of the great things about the Klein Borescope is the WiFi connectivity to your phone. The downside is that wifi uses more power than Bluetooth. That’s an easy trade-off to make considering that wifi has a much faster transfer rate. Since we’re talking about sending video to your phone, you want the faster connection.

Using your phone as a completely separate screen keeps us from having to squeeze into an awkward position just to see what’s happening. You can clip the Borescope to your belt, move the camera with your hands, and watch the whole thing on your phone no matter how you need to twist and turn it.

Because the image beams to an app on your phone, you can manipulate the image rather than the camera. The Borescope app gives you the ability to rotate the image without having to wrestle with the camera or cable orientation.

You can also capture, record, save, and share images and video straight to and from your phone.

Finally, this setup keeps the costs of this item down. Because Klein doesn’t need to add the cost of a display, the savings get passed on to you! We found it online for $87.77.

Additional Features

The Klein Borescope Inspection Camera includes a 6′ IP67 waterproof camera gooseneck that can maneuver around objects while still maintaining some rigidity. It has 6 LED lights on the camera that you can control either from the unit or using the app on your phone. As far as the image quality goes, the 9mm camera produces 640 x 480 images.

This inspection camera also includes a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that powers the camera up to 5 hours on a charge. From the unit, you can monitor the wifi connection and battery status.

The Klein Borescope Inspection Camera comes with a pocket clip, USB charging cable, hook attachment, carrying case, and instructions. The Borescope App works on Apple iOS Version 6 or higher and Android version 4.2 or higher.
