Note: Minimum order of 24 flashlights is required from Closeout Central.
The Extreme2 Light (hereinafter called a "light" or a "flashlight" because superscripts ruin the text on the web page) is a small LED flashlight with a little twist: two LEDs in the business-end instead of one. One LED will always be white, the other is red, green, or blue. Press the button on the right to get the white LED, press the button on the left to get the colored LED, or press the button in the center to get both LEDs (blue and green models only).

A CR2016 lithium coin cell and a L1131 button cell inside the flashlight provides power to those LEDs. The case itself appears to be made from plastic, with a shiny metal ring all the way around it.


To use your new flashlight, easily cut it out of its package with a pair of heavy-duty household scissors. If scissors are not available, you may use a knife or razor blade to slit the package open at one of the sides and the top or bottom. Remove the flashlight from its package, and then you'll be ready to rock.

Press and hold the right side of the oval-shaped button on the top of the flashlight to turn the white LED on. Release the button to turn it off.

Press and hold the left side of the oval-shaped button on the top of the flashlight to turn the colored LED on. Release the button to turn it off.

Press and hold the center of the oval-shaped button on the top of the flashlight to turn both LEDs on. Release the button to turn them off. Note that this function works only on flashlights that have a blue or green LED, and does NOT work on the flashlight with the red LED in it.

There is no continuous or constant-on mode available; these flashlights are equipped with momentary switches only.

A spring-loaded "lobster claw"-type clasp is affixed to the rear portion of the flashlight with a short length of chain.

This flashlight uses a very unusual conbination of a CR2016 lithium coin cell and an L1131 alkaline button cell for power.

To change these batteries when necessary, use a small phillips screwdriver (#0, with a 2.l4mm diameter shaft works well) to unscrew and remove the two phillips-head screws from the top of the flashlight. Set the screws aside. Lift off the top portion of the flashlight, and set that aside too.

Remove the two LEDs, being careful not to bend their leads or lose the blue insulating sleeves found on the top (cathode or (-) negative) leads. Set the LEDs aside with the screws and flashlight top.

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

Reinstall both LEDs, so that the leads with the blue insulating sleeves are on top.

Place a new L1131 button cell in the bottom of the chamber, flat-end (+) positive down. Place a new CR2016 coin cell on top of that, flat-end (+) facing down. Be sure the (-) LED leads are on the top of the CR2016 lithium coin cell, and that the blue insulating sleeves on the LED leads go over the edge of the "button" on the cell, so the cell does not short out.

Place the top of the flashlight back on, and screw in the screws.

This battery changing procedure is a bit finicky, and you would not want to do it in the woods or on the trail. It is best done at the home or office.

This photograph is of the business-end of the flashlight, showing both LEDs.

The flashlight appears at very minimum at least reasonably durable. When I performed the smack test of 10 whacks (five against the bottom, and five against the top, being sure I struck the plastic portion and not the metal) against a 30" steel rod, no damage was visible and no electrical or optical malfunctions were detected.

The flashlight is mildly weather- and splash-resistant, but it is not waterproof or submersible. It failed the suction test rather miserably, and no environmental protection (like O-rings) was found when I disassembled it for a battery change. So please try not to drop it in creeks, rivers, ponds, lakes, oceansides, docksides, puddles of mouse 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. A little rain or snow probably wouldn't hurt it though, so you need not be too concerned about using it in moderately bad weather.

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 to smell like seashells or piss when you go to use it next. Besides, salt (from seawater or urination) can't be very good for the metal of the LED leads or the metal on the outer portion of the case.

These flashlights only cost $1 though, so if yours got dredged or peed on, disposing of it (throwing it away) won't piss you off that much. Just try to rescue those LEDs first if you do decide to toss it.

One thing that may upset some users is that the two LED beams aim in different directions, rather than being combined into a single beam. This is my opinion only, and individual results may vary. Because this is a totally subjective opinion, it will not figure into the rating I give this flashlight near Halloween 2004.

From the person who I purchased these flashlights from, comes the following:

While I was promised 8 of each color in each lot, that is not what was shipped to me. I was shorted on red and green and ended up with a whole bunch of blue ones. I did received 24 lights (in a lot) but there were only 10 green and 12 red out of 48 total lights (2 lots). The rest were blue.

These flashlights are a bit on the dim side when compared to other LED flashlights, but they're definitely adequate for finding keyholes, searching for dropped objects, or lighting a stairwell after a power failure or after the bulb burned out.

Three samples of the Extreme2 Light flashlight were purchased from a Candlepower Forums member on 09-17-04, and were received on the morning of 09-20-04.
