Review – when I was a kid, I was a DIY kid. As an mature, I continued this passion and skill. Over the years I have learned that it is very important to have the right tool for the job if I want to do the job properly and not waste time. With the right tool also saves a lot of Frustration. Being able to see in hard-to-reach areas, even if I drop a screw and don’t have a clear view of where it is, has been a repetitive occurrence for years. This Ancel WF100 wireless endoscope camera should be the answer to this problem, as well as a great tool for many other fun tasks and explorations.
What is it?

The Ancel WF100 wireless endoscope camera works great and is a great tool for finding places and spaces that would otherwise be very difficult to reach and see. It is also a great tool just for fun and for intended use. Its use is limited to your imagination. It’s great that it’s waterproof so I can see if/when my kids throw a toy down the drain. It can also be used in learning and in a scientific way, for example to record fish from their own environment. Then there are the scenarios where I have to find bolts that I either dropped into the engine compartment of my car, or something small that I dropped under the car seat, etc. nice product at a reasonable price.
