"Pixie" White LED Projection Flashlight, retail $1.00 ()
Manufactured by ()
Last updated 01-17-12

This is a very small LED flashlight with a bit of a twist: when it is shone upon a light-colored surface in subdued lightimg (or better yet, in total or near-total darkness), a projected color image of a pixie becomes immediately evident (see "beamshots" below).

It uses a white LED, a lens of some type, and of course, the projection image itself; it comes in a red plastic body with a white bezel & switch.

 Size of product w/hand to show scale SIZE

To use the "Pixie" White LED Projection Flashlight, just aim it at a light colored wall or ceiling, and slide the small white slide switch on the barrel forward (toward the "business-end" of the light); to turn it off, slide the same switch backward (toward the tail).

This flashlight is disposable, so when it poops out, you simply toss it into any convenient dustbin (garbage can) and attempt to win another one from a "gumball" machine like the one you obtained this product from in the first place.

This flashlight/projector is somewhat cheap-feeling and "chintzy", not a flashlight in a metal or thick plastic body that is meant to be carried around, thrashed, trashed, and abused. It was also a Christmas gift from my two best friends. So I won't hit it against the concrete floor of a carport, try to drown it in a toliet, stomp on it, throw it against a wall, run over it with a 450lb electric wheelchair, let my housemate's cats take a leak on it, throw it at a wall-mounted porcelain uranator to see if it explodes (the flashlight, not the uranator), sit on it really hard, or subject it to any other potentially destructive tests that a regular flashlight might be subject to. So this section of the web page will appear significantly more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight in a metal or thick plastic body.

Photograph of the projection on a wall at ~6 feet; image itself was isolated & enhanced as best I could.
I don't know if the projection is a pixie, a sprite {not a can of pop or a moveable image element on a Commodore 64 computer}, a wood nymph, or just a fairy.

Test unit was given to me by my best friends P. Buff and P. Dexter at my belated Christmas lunch on the early-afternoon of 01-14-12 (or "14 Jan 2012" or even "Jan 12, Twenty Stick-Very-Twirly-Stick" if you prefer); it was "won" from a "gumball" machine at Godfather's Pizza in Auburn WA. USA a short time earlier.

Because this was a Christmas present, the "" icon will be appended to its listings on this website, denoting the fact that no abusive and/or potentially destructive tests (including attempting to drown it in the toliet) will be performed on it.

Since this product is disposable, the "" will also be appended to its listings on this website.

UPDATE: 00-00-00

Very small in size
Projects a relatively clear image despite its light source (large for a projection light source in a projector of this diminuitive size)

Disposable (there goes a perfectly good LED down the {vulgar term for caca}bowl!)
Not waterproof
Has a somewhat cheap feel to it
