Flashlight/Laser Module, retail $6.99 ()

Last updated 03-20-07

This handy-dandy little light - a little larger than a stick of chewing gum and approximately four times as thick - features two 3mm white LEDs and a red diode laser. It comes in a metal and plastic body, and feeds from two user-replaceable CR2016 lithium coin cells in a compartment inside the light.


The Flashlight/Laser Module comes with batteries already installed, so it's ready to use right away.

To use the flashlight, press & hold the frontmost button down.
To turn it off, just release the button.

To use the laser, aim it at something you wish to point out, and press & hold the rearmost button.
To turn it off, just release the button.

To change the batteries, turn the unit over, and place the end of a butterknife in the cutout in the front of the battery door. Gently pry the door off, remove it, set it on the ground, and kick it into the garden so the hungry, hungry praying mantids will think it's something yummy to eat and strike at it...O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set it aside instead.

Remove the two used CR2016 cells from the battery compartment, and dispose of or recycle them as you see fit.

Insert two new CR2016 cells into the chamber, button-end (-) negative down. Be sure they go under the metal strip - that serves as the positive (+) contact.

Place the battery door back over the opening, and press down until it snaps into place.
Aren't you glad you didn't kick that battery door into the garden with all those hungry, hungry praying mantids now?

Here is what a praying mantis looks like.

This instrument is reasonably durable, but because it has a laser in it, I won't do the smack test on it. I know you love to see me break things, but it "ain't" "gonna" happen today, folks.

Water-resistance is minimal at best. There are no environmental seals (like O-rings) visible on it. So please try not to drop it in creeks, rivers, ponds, lakes, oceansides, docksides, puddles of siamese cat pee (what - no cat box?), 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, disassemble it as you would for a battery change, dump out the water if necessary, and set 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 all the parts out with fresh water before setting them out to dry. You don't want your Flashlight/Laser Module to smell like seaweed or piss when you go to use it next. Besides, salt (from seawater or wee-wee) can't be very good for the insides.

Measures 8,320mcd on a Meterman LM631 light meter.
This reading appears a little low because these are wider-than-usual viewing angle LEDs.

Test units were purchased on Ebay on 03-15-07 and were received on 03-19-07.

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.

Because the laser outputs more than 5mW, I should call it a "module" on this website, and not a "pointer".

There is no laser label on this product; this is a requirement of the CDRH (Center for Devices and Radiological Health) for any consumer product containing a laser and having a beam that is accessible to the user sold in the United States.

UPDATE: 00-00-00


No CDRH laser label
