LED Flashlight/Work Light (2), retail $3.99 (http://groceryoutlet.com*)
Manufactured by (Unknown)
Last updated 07-04-13

The LED Flashlight/Work Light (2) is a somewhat "puck-shaped" little light (elliptical in general shape) that has 24 phosphor white LEDs on the front surface of its body, three phosphor white LEDs in the front {top} of the unit, and uses three AAA cells (included) to power those LEDs with.

It comes in a black & yellow plastic body, and it has a magnet on the back to allow you to affix it to just about any flat, ferrous (iron-containing; such as automobile hoods) magnetic (such as iron, mild steel, cobalt, or nickel) surface.

Electrically, the LED Flashlight/Work Light (2) is fairly easy to use...just press & release the black button on the front of its body in the following order:

1st press: Flashlight mode.
2nd press: Off.
3rd press: Work light mode.
4th press: Off.

Just like it reads on the backs of many shampoo (or shampee) bottles, "lather, rinse, repeat". In other words, pressing & releasing the button again activates flashlight mode.

To change the batteries in the LED Flashlight/Work Light (2), turn it upside-down. Unscrew & remove the three Phillips screws. Remove the back of the unit. Buy yourself an airline ticket and fly yourself plus the screws & back of the product to Hollywood (put them in checked baggage if necessary), bring it to the set of the new movie, "Halloween V: Season of the Bitch", have the special effects crew grind them into microscopic bits to have those itty bitty bits implanted into millions of Kotex and Tampax tampons, and...O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THOSE!!! So save your airfare & just set them aside instead.

If necessary, remove the three used AAA cells from the compartment, and dispose of or recycle them as you see fit.

Insert three new AAA cells into the compartment, orienting them so that their flat-ends (-) negatives face the springs for them in the chambers.

Place the back of the product onto the front half, screw in those screws that you removed a few moments ago, and be done with it.
Aren't you glad that you didn't fly that back piece and those screws to Hollywood where they would get ground into microscopic bits for the sake of some phoney-bologna fake Halloween movie now?

The LED Flashlight/Work Light (2) is designed to be used as an occasional-use work light and flashlight (which also comes in a somewhat brittle-feeling plastic body), not used as a super sturdy "barrel-style" flashlight in a metal body that won't mind you abusing it. So I won't throw it against the wall, stomp on it, try to drown it in the {vulgar term for feces}bowl or the cistern, run over it, swing it against the concrete floor of a front porch, use a medium claw hammer to bash it open in order to check it for candiosity, fire it from the cannoñata (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), a handheld wand that Langston Lickatoad uses, or a pack-of-cards-sized instrument that Fergy Fudgehog uses; and the cannoñata (also located at Piñata Central) is only used to shoot piñatas to piñata parties away from picturesque Piñata Island), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, shoot it into a cosmic string fragment
*, or inflict upon it punishments that a flashlight in a metal or sturdier plastic body may have inflicted upon it.

This product has a somewhat brittle feel to it; although having it fall to a concrete floor from chest-height may not cause breakage, I cannot guarantee that this will be the case. Since I only have one, and testing this theory might result in the product becoming busted and subsequently making additional comparisons & analyses no longer possible, I cannot actually test this.

The LED Flashlight/Work Light (2) is not very water (or other fluid, for that matter)-resistant.
If it fell in water and you suspect it got flooded, remove the battery door & batteries, dump out the water if necessary, and set it in a warm dry place for a day or so just to be sure it's completely dry inside before you use it again.

If it fell into seawater, got thrown into a glass of milk, if it fell in a root beer float, if it fell into a bowl of "soft-serv" ice cream, if somebody squirted a Massengill brand post-menstrual disposable douche or a Fleet brand disposable enema at it (and hit it with the douche or the enema), or if somebody or something got "pyst off" at it and subsequently "pist" on it, douche it out with fresh water before setting it out to dry. You don't want your LED Flashlight/Work Light (2) to smell like seaweed, sour milk, flowers, fresh butts, or rotten pee when you go to use it next. Besides, salt (from seawater, disposable douches, disposable enemas, or uranation), lactic acid (from moo juice), glycerol (from antifreeze), or sugar (from root beer & ice cream) can't be very good for the insides.

The worklight LEDs are your standard, garden-variety 20° LEDs, not wide-angle lamps that would be preferred in a work light. So the work light is nothing but a glorified flashlight.
