3 in 1 Multifunctional Torch, retail $(Unknown)
Manufactured by (Unknown)
Last updated 02-08-08

The 3 in 1 Multifunctional Torch is just that: a product that can act as an adjustable beam flashlight, an area lantern, and a red blinking emergency flasher. You cannot use more than one mode at any given time, but I do not at all consider this to be a negative.

It comes in a plastic body, and feeds from four AA cells.


To use the 3 in 1 Multifunctional Torch, feed it first (see directly below), and then you can navigate your way to that pesky fusebox.

On the side of the product's body, slide the yellow switch forward (toward the front of the unit) until it clicks once to turn the "tube" on the side of the 3 in 1 Multifunctional Torch on.

Slide the switch forward until it clicks a second time to turn the red blinker on.

Slide the switch forward until it clicks a third time to turn the flashlight portion on.

Slide the switch all the way toward the back of the unit to turn it off.

The 3 in 1 Multifunctional Torch has an adjustable beam; adjust it by pulling the yellow piece on the front of the unit and positioning it in or out as desired.

To change the batteries, slide the yellow battery door off the back of the torch, throw it on the ground as hard as you can, and kick it into the garden so the hungry, hungry praying mantids will think it's something yummy to eat and subsequently strike at it...O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set it aside instead.

Tip the used AA cells out of the torch, and dispose of or recycle them as you see fit.

Slide four new AA cells in the torch's body, orienting them according to the polarity diagrams on the battery door.

Slide the battery door back on until it no longer moves.
Aren't you glad you didn't kick that battery door into the garden with all those hungry praying mantids now?

Here is what a praying mantis looks like.

Unable to measure current consumption due to how the 3 in 1 Multifunctional Torch was constructed.

Since this is an incandescent flashight, sooner or later you're going to have to change the blubs. Let's start with the flashlight (reflectored) portion.

To do that, pull the yellow piece from the front of the torch until it comes off.

Unscrew the old bulb, and dispose of it.

Screw a new bulb in until it stops turning.

Place the reflector portion back on, and push it straight down.

To change the bulb in the lantern portion, pull the white piece straight off the side of the torch, and set it aside.

Unscrew the old bulb, place it on the floor, and ***STOMP ON IT!!!***...o wait, just dispose of it!

Screw a new bulb in until it stops turning.

Place the white diffuser back onto the side of the torch, and push it straight in until it snaps into place.

The bulb in the red blinker portion appears to be permanent and not changeable.

This unit is of all-plastic construction, so "The Smack Test" really wouldn't be appropriate here.

Same with "The Toilet Test"...not because somebody else lives here, but because the product is not waterproof or submersible. There is no environmental protection (such as O-rings) visible any place on it, so it is not waterproof and is DEFINITELY not submersible. So please try not to drop it in creeks, rivers, ponds, lakes, oceansides, docksides, puddles of emperor penguin pee, slush piles, mud puddles, tubs, toilet bowls, cisterns, sinks, fishtanks, dog water dishes, or other places where water or water-like liquids might be found.

If it fell in water and you suspect it got flooded, remove the bezel, battery door, and batteries, empty the water out of the body if necessary, and set all the parts in a warm dry place for a day or so just to be sure it's completely dry inside before you reassemble and use it again.

If it fell into seawater or if somebody or something peed on it, douche it out with fresh water before setting it out to dry. You don't want your 3 in 1 Multifunctional Torch to smell like seaweed or ammonia when you go to use it next. Besides, salt (from seawater or piss) can't be very good for the insides.

The light produced by the 3 in 1 Multifunctional Torch is a distinctly yellow-white, but not nearly as dim as many other incandescent AA cell flashlights.

There is no knurling (crosshatch-shaped texturising) on the 3 in 1 Multifunctional Torch, but there is a cutout in the side of its body to help you keep a grip on it.

Product was made in China. A product's country of origin really does matter to some people, which is why I published it on this web page.
