Halloween Rainbow Night Sabers, retail $2.97 (Spirit Needle*...er...uh...Spirit HALLOWEEN**)

The Halloween Rainbow Night Saber is a Halloween accessory that is meant to be carried by Trick-Or-Treaters when they're out getting candy or TPing a tree.

It looks a bit like a flashlight, but the upper half of the product's "barrel" flashes & pulsates in any of seven different colors - plus the right "eye" of the pirate character's skull moulded into it below the wand but above the handle flashes & pulsates red whenever a mode using the red LED is activated.

It comes in an all-plastic body, uses a pair of AA cells (included; already installed), and has at least three LEDs (one each red, green, and blue) to do its thing.

* There's a Digimon episode called "Spirit Needle", from season 2.
Here, let's prove that with the following screen dump & video clip:

YourTube video showing part of this episode where Arukenimon turns a control spire into a very naughty digimon.

To use the Halloween Rainbow Night Saber, carefully remove it from the package first (ask a grown-up {adult} to do this for you if you're not already an adult - because you'll need a very sharp knife or a razor blade to do this).

There is a "Try Me" switch connected by a pair of thin wires to the battery compartment; gently pull this out before using it for the first time.

Press & release the red button on the black handle (the button is located directly below the skull's "mouth") one or more times to get the following effects:
  • Red flash.
  • Off.
  • Green flash.
  • Off.
  • Blue flash.
  • Off.
  • Yellow flash (red & green LEDs).
  • Off.
  • Cyan flash (blue & green LEDs).
  • Off.
  • Purple flash (red & blue LEDs).
  • Off.
  • White flash (all three LEDs).
  • Off.
  • Fade effect - where the color starts out red, then fades off, then goes to green, etc.)
  • Off.
Like it reads on the backs of many shampoo (or "shampee") bottles, "lather, rinse, repeat". In other words, the sequence will begin anew with "red flash" with the 17th press of the button.

To change the batteries, turn the product upside-down so that the black handle faces up. Unscrew and remove the red cap that you see on the handle. Carry it to the nearest graveyard, and huck it so that it lands near the center of a grave so that the yucky, rotting stinky zombies find it, become angry at it, stomp on it, and kick the grave marker (preferrably a heavy one) on top of it so that it becomes smashed...O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set it aside instead.

Tip the two used AA cells out of the barrel and into your hand, and recycle or dispose of them as you see fit - do not throw it in the graveyard...don't you think you've given those zombies enough grief already?

Insert two new AA cells, orienting them so that their button-ends (+) positives go in first.

Screw the red cap back on, and be done with it.
Aren't you glad that you didn't chuck that red cap into the graveyard amongst all those smelly zombies that are really ticked off now?

Because the is a Halloween accessory intended to be used by Trick-Or-Treaters, and not a flashlight meant to be carried around, thrashed, trashed, and abused, I won't try to drown it in the toliet tank, bash it against a steel rod or against the concrete floor of a front porch in effort to try and break it, let my mother's big dog's ghost or my sister's kitty cats spring a leak (uranate) on it, hose it down with a gun, run over it with a 450lb Celebrity motorised wheelchair, stomp on it, use a medium ball peen hammer in order to bash it open to check it for candiosity, fire it from the cannoņata, drop it down the top of Mt. Erupto (I guess I've been watching the TV program "Viva Piņata" too much again - candiosity is usually checked with a laser-type device on a platform with a large readout (located at Piņata Central {aka. "Party Central"}), with a handheld wand that Langston Lickatoad uses, or with a pack-of-cards-sized device that Fergy Fudgehog uses; the cannoņata (also located at Piņata Central) is only used to shoot piņatas to piņata parties away from picturesque Piņata Island, and Mt. Erupto is an active volcano on Piņata Island), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, or perform other indecencies on it that a flashlight might have to have performed on it. So this section of the web page will be ***SIGNIFICANTLY*** more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

Because this is a pulsating/flashing product, I cannot perform intensity measurements with the instruments at my command.
