Not Recommended – 5W AA LED Keychain Flashlight Reviews

posted by oronocova on 12/06/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Small
Lightweight
Easily found battery
OK feeling switch
Smooth threading
No weird logos on light (clean)
Cons:
This light was not what I expected, and I did not expect a very bright light. I ordered three and all three have similar output. Unfortunately the output is only about 2-4 times that of one of the 2x2016 keychain lights. I ordered these hoping they would be sufficiently bright to give as gifts for electronics/computer inspection. They only barely fill this role.
Other:
I would not recommend this light even at the cheap price unless you are expecting something not very bright.
Bottomline:
Probably only usefull for finding your way around the house at night or in a very dark environment. Will not seem that bright or useful with much ambient lighting. Again, of three I have, they all are only about 2-4 times as bright as one of the button cell keychain lights on DX. Build quality is OK for the price, but the lack of output is disappointing.
