Superhero Projector Light, retail $1.00

Last updated 09-29-13

The Superhero Projector Light is a small light that projects an image of a superhero (such as Superman, Spiderman, Aquaman, etc.) when you activate it and aim it at a reasonably flat, light-colored surface (such as a wall).

The product uses a white LED and feeds from 3 AG3 button cells; unlike all other, "gumball machine" lights I've tested, the Superhero Projector Light is
***NOT*** disposable; that is, you can fairly easily change the batteries when they poop out.

 Size of product w/hand to show scale SIZE

The Superhero Projector Light is quite easy to use...simply slide the slide switch located on the top of the product toward the front of the unit and direct (aim) it at a reasonably flat, light-colored surface such as a wall.

Slide the switch the other way to neutralise it.

To change the batteries in your Superhero Projector Light, take a small Phillips screwdriver (the type often found in eyeglasses repair kits would serve you well here) and unscrew & remove the small screw holding the battery door in place. Place it in a safe location (the screw is small, but not 'fiddly small' and shouldn't fly off the table if you breathe on it!). Remove the battery door as well, and huck it into the forest so that a flying squirrel finds it, gets all angry at it, passes micturition (pee) on it, and...
O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set it aside instead!

Remove the used AG3 button cells, and recycle or dispose of them as you see fit.

As the open battery compartment is oriented toward the center of the table (vs. being closest to you), install three new AG3 button cells into the compartment, orienting them so that their flat-ends (+) positives face to the left.

Place the battery door back on, and screw in that little screw.
Aren't you glad that you didn't huck that battery door into the forest with that pissed off flying squirrel with a full pissinary bladder now?

This is a cheaply-made projector light, 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 Metaltrailmon - um that's not it either...the bare 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 kitty or my sister's kitty cat piddle (uranate) on it, hose it down with my mother's gun, run over it with a 450lb Quickie Pulse 6 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 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 sshoot 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 analyses, or perform other indecencies on it that a flashlight might have to have performed on it. Therefore, this section of the Superhero Projector Light's web page will seem a bit more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

Spectrographic analysis
Spectrographic analysis of the LED in this light.

Spectrographic analysis
Spectrographic analysis of the LED in this light; spectrometer's response narrowed to a band between 430nm and 440nm to pinpoint native emission peak wavelength, which is 435.970nm.

This is a considerably shorter pump wavelength than is usual for phosphor white LEDs.

My two best friends P. Buff and P. Dexter (they're a married couple) gave this light to me as a belated birthday present (my annual birthday lunch with them was on 09-21-13); it came out of a vending machine at a Godfather's Pizza in Federal Way WA. USA. Therefore, the "" icon will appear appended to its listings on this website, denoting the fact that abusive (and potentially destructive) testing will not be performed on it.
