Last updated 06-16-10

This is the Husky 9x LED flashlight. It has 9 5mm white LEDs in its "business-end", feeds those LEDs with a trio of AAA cells, and comes in a fairly sturdy metal body.

** Pricing is approximate only.

* The flashlight on the linked web page appears to be a rebranded version of this one.

To use the Husky flashlight, feed it first (see below), and then you can go to town.

Press the black tailcap button firmly until it clicks and then release it to turn the Husky on. Repeat the same action to turn the flashlight off.

There is no momentary or signalling mode available when the flashlight is off, however, you can blink the Husky while it is on by partially depressing the tailcap button. If you don't mind the backward or reverse feeling of this, you can blink the flashlight this way.

To change the batteries, unscrew and remove the tailcap, carry it to an open-pit copper or gadolinium mine and huck it with all your might so that a Caterpillar, road grader, front-end loader, dump truck, or other piece of heavy machinery runs over & flattens it...O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set it aside instead.

Tip the black plastic battery carriage out of the barrel and into your hand. If necessary, remove and dispose of or recycle the used AAA cells from it.

Insert three new AAA cells into the carriage, orienting each cell so its flat end (-) negative faces the spring for it in each chamber.

Slide the now-full battery carriage into the flashlight barrel, orienting it so the arrow printed on piece of self-adhesive paper on one of the seperator pylons on the side of the carriage itself goes in point-first.

Finally, screw the tailcap firmly back on.
Aren't you glad you didn't chuck that tailcap into the mine now?

Current usage measures 162.70mA on my DMM's 4A scale.
This equates to a current usage of 18.077mA per LED.

Although this is a flashlight meant to be bashed, thrashed, trashed, and abused; this is a loaner, and I'm absolutely, positively, 100% certain that its owner would like it back with no dings in the barrel, or yucky old toliet water or desiccated (dried up) rat pellets in the barrel. So I won't throw it against the wall, stomp on it, try to drown it in the toylet bowl or the cistern, run over it, swing it against the concrete floor of a porch, use a medium claw hammer in order to smash 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), 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 {In the episode "Les Saves the Day...Again", Paulie Preztail says "Hey, ever wonder why this park's called 'Mount Erupto' anyway?", then Franklin Fizzlybear says "I think its an old native term. Means 'very safe.'"}), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, or inflict upon it punishments that flashlights that aren't "loaner units" may have inflicted upon them.

Test unit was loaned to me by my mother; I only had custody of it long enough to take product & beam photographs, current and intensity measurements, and perform spectrographic & beam cross-sectional analyses -- therefore, that dreadful "" icon will be appended to its listings on this website at once.

UPDATE: 00-00-00

Uses LEDs so you never have to change a burned-out bub
Intensity is decent
LEDs are not at all overdriven (~18mA per LED)
Uses batteries that are common and relatively inexpen$ive
