Wireless Borescope Camera

The Depstech WF010 Wireless Borescope Snake Camera is the sort of thing that you've probably never heard of before. Once you get one though and you see how incredibly useful it can be in so many different situations, you won't be able to imagine ever being without one again.

In a nutshell, this little gadget has three main components. First, there's a small box that houses a battery and circuitry, as well as a Wi-Fi radio. Next comes the 11.5-foot-long "snake" part of the device, which is a semi-rigid tube that can be extended and shaped however you want. Finally, there's a camera on the end of the tube that captures live video as you snake the device into anything and everything you want.

There are so many great uses for this device that it's difficult to know where to begin, so let's first cover exactly what it does. The WF010 connects wirelessly to your iPhone, iPad, or Android device and turns it into a remote viewfinder and controller. You can see exactly what the camera sees as you snake it into something, and you can also use the phone to record video or capture still photos.

Here's a quick blurb from a 5-star review on Amazon that explains one of the countless use cases for it:

I had a water leak in my wall. I didn't know where it was and the Endoscope enabled me to find it by drilling 1/2 inch holes in the wall. I was amazed when I found the water pipe with the hole in it (see image). Hiring a plumber could have cost me over $500, but I was able to isolate the problem and fix the leak for less than $100 (including the cost of the scope).

It's waterproof, by the way, so that reviewer didn't have to worry about getting the borescope wet. Here's another Amazon review:

Worked perfectly to help me get a gas can protector cap out of my tractor gas tank. Handled a half hour deep in diesel gas, no problems!

That second one is of particular interest because it touches upon something else you can do with this Depstech borescope. It comes with a few attachments that clip to the end and add all sorts of functionality. Once cool one is a mirror that lets you see around corners as you work the camera into a tight space. Then there's a hook attachment that lets you fish things like keys and jewelry out of places you might otherwise never reach. That's the attachment the reviewer above used to retrieve the cap from his gas can.

There's a reason the Depstech WF010 Wireless Borescope Snake Camera is one of the most popular smartphone accessories we've ever covered: it's awesome. It's also on sale right now at its lowest price of the year right now if you clip the 20% coupon on the Amazon page just $28.79.
