Last updated 08-28-13

The Xodus Glowing Key Fob is a new technological advancement on a product that's otherwise quite mundane. It not only serves as a keychain flashlight ideal for reading restaraunt & bar menus in poorly-illuminated areas, but you'll also notice a faint glow coming from it at night.

This faint glow emenating from the product, called Low Glow, allows you to find your keys if you drop them in a dark parking lot or if you're looking for them in a purse or bag -- plus this patented feature makes it possible for that tiny CR2032 cell (or, "battery" if you prefer to be incorrect) to last for up to one full year (assuming of course, that you don't use "maximum intensity" every five minutes)!

 Size of product w/hand to show scale SIZE

To use your shiny new (or corroded old ) Xodus Glowing Key Fob, gently (slowly) pull out the large plastic tab; this tab functions as an insulator and prevents the cell from becoming discharged before you purchase it.

Attach it to your keyring using the handy-dandy spring-loaded "lobster claw" clasp on a swivel (I really like swivels on this type of product!!!)

To increase the intensity, press & hold that large circular button located on the side of the product. This increased brightness should be sufficient for you to read restaraunt & bar menus in subdued lighting, find keyholes, and similar short-range lighting tasks.

Simply release the button to neutralise the Xodus Glowing Key Fob and return it to its very low-level glowing state.

To change the power cell in your Xodus Glowing Key Fob, take a blunt instrument like a medium flathead (standard) screwdriver or the end of a butterknife, and pry the back of the unit off by sticking the knife or screwdriver blade in one of the slots on the sides of the unit and gently twisting.

Remove this back cover, and set it aside.

Remove the dead, dead CR2032 cell, and recycle or dispose of it as you see fit. Do not attempt to dispose of it by flushing, and for Christ sakes please do not throw it into a trout-filled stream!!!

Drop a new CR2032 cell in, orienting it so that its flat end (+) faces up.

Gently snap the back of the unit on, and there, you're done!
This battery changing procedure actually sounds a bit more difficult by reading it than it is to actually do it!

This is a glowing key fob, not a flashlight meant to be thrashed, trashed, and abused. So I won't try to drown it in the toliet tank, bash it against a steel rod or against the concrete floor of a carport in effort to try and expose the bare Metalmarineangemon - er - the bare Metalwargrowlmon - um that's not it either...the bare Metaldarktyrannomon...er...uh...wait a sec here...THE BARE METAL (guess I've been watching too much Digimon again! - now I'm just making {vulgar term for feces} up!!!), let my mother's big dog's ghost, her kitties, my sister's kitty cat, or my own kitty cat piddle (uranate) on it, hose it down with my mother's handgun, run over it with a 450lb Quickie Pulse 6 motorised wheelchair, stomp on it, use a medium ball peen hammer in order to smash it open to check it for candiosity, fire it from the cannoñata, drop it down the top of Mt. Erupto (now I guess I've been watching the TV program "Viva Piñata" too much again - candiosity is usually checked with a laser-type device on a platform with a large readout (located at Piñata 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 cannoñata (also located at Piñata Central) is only used to shoot piñatas to piñata parties away from picturesque Piñata Island, and Mt. Erupto is an active volcano on Piñata 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. Therefore, this section of the Xodus Glowing Key Fob's web page will seem a bit more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

Having said that, the Xodus Glowing Key Fob passed it's first "acid test" yesterday morning (08-14-12). I had my keys (with this product) clipped to the basket of my Pride® Celebrity X3 Scooter (which has no shock absorbtion whatsoever!!!), I made the trip from home to Celebration Park in Federal Way WA. USA to go fly one of my R/C helicopters and then back again, and I have no failure or malfunctions to report. This way of carrying keys is somewhat rougher than the average person might transport them, so I considered this worthy of reporting.

Test sample of this product plus four other products was sent by A.G. of Jenesis International on 08-07-12 (or "12 Aug. 2012" or even "Aug. 12, twenty stick-very-twirly-stick" if you prefer) and was received at 11:11am PDT on 08-13-12.

* "Off" actually isn't true off; when the product is neutralised, a very faint glow still emenates from it. This glow, called Low Glow, is actually the primary reasoning for this otherwise mundane product (a key fob).

UPDATE: 00-00-00

Totally unique product
"Low Glow" means the power cell can last a full year!
Reasonably durable construction for a key fob light
When intensity is increased, short-range lighting tasks are easy

None that I have yet to discover
