Safe-Light Super Bright, retail $14.99 (www.safe-light.com...)

Last updated 06-22-10

The Safe-Light Super Bright is a small, single LED, single battery LED flashlight. Packaged in a plastic body, this light is about the size of a large, heavy cigarette lighter case. It fits easily into a pocket or purse, and uses a common 9v transistor radio battery for power.
Unlike most regular flashlights, this one has three operating modes, and can stay continuously lit to help you find it in the dark. And even that mode can be deactivated if you wish.


To turn this light on, press the rubberised button near the front of the light. The first time you press it, the light comes on at low level. Push it again, and it comes on full-strength. Push it again, and the light flashes the standard SOS signal (three short flashes, three long flashes, three short flashes; pause, repeat). Pushing the button again turns the light off.

If the button is pushed & held in for approximately one second, the "find me" mode can be activated or deactivated.

To change the battery in your Safe-Light, unscrew and turn the large plastic screw on the bottom of the unit with a medium standard screwdriver or a coin, counterclockwise approximately 1/8th of a turn until it stops.

Pull the back straight off the light. Tip the used battery (if necessary, shake the body slightly to help remove it) out of the body, and dispose of or recycle the dead 9 volt battery as you see fit.

Orienting the body of the Safe Light so the label faces the sky or ceiling, and the clip on its underside faces the ground or floor, slide a new 9 volt battery in the body of the Safe-Light, orienting it so the small (+) terminal of the battery faces the left as the label of the unit is pointing upward and the unit itself is pointed forward.

Place the light's back over the opening at the rear of the body, and tighten that screw approximately 1/8th of a turn until it stops.
This process is easier to do in person than it is to describe on a web page.

A magnetic clip comes with the Safe Light Super Bright.
To affix it to your Safe-Light Super Bright, slide the clip in the slot on the underside of the product, and be done with it.

This clip features a magnet, so it can hold the flashlight onto a refrigerator door, auto body, or any other flat magnetic metal (iron, mild steel, nickel, or cobalt) object. It also swivels, with detents every 30, so there are 12 positions it can swivel to.

The Safe-Lite is weather- and splash-resistant; and possibly even submersible to shallow depths too.

The beam configuration of the white unit is a medium spot, with softer fall-off to corona. It has a predominantly bluish-white central spot with a white corona. There is no "rotten octopus urine green" tint to it. Not in the hotspot; not in the corona either.

(Update 05-04-06):
This product appears to use a method called PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) to achieve its dim level; the LED can be seen rapidly flashing on & off when the unit is rapidly waved about.

Test units purchased by user "yellow1" of Candlepower Forums, and were received at ~11:57am PDT on 04-06-06.

UPDATE: 04-07-06
I had set these lights on a spare keyboard, and promptly forgot about them. But when I turned off the light and went to bed, I noted that my night table was still slightly illuminated. I thought to myself "what the {vulgar term for intercourse} is that {vulgar term for having intercourse} light?!?"
Then I figured it out...it was the four Safe Light Super Bright flashlights I had set down earlier - they were all aimed in the general direction of my night table. So yes, the "find me" mode works very well thankyouverymuch.

UPDATE: 10-23-06
I was sent three of the units by Herb of Candlepower Forums, and they were received on the afternoon of 10-23-06. These have been customised with the CPF graphic.

Here is a photograph of all three.
Each is equipped with a white LED.

Intensity measures 4,040mcd on low, and 46,300mcd on high.

And here's a closeup photograph of the CPF graphic on the top of each unit.

Also, the SOS mode has been replaced with a slow flash mode.

UPDATE: 10-23-06
No, you aren't seeing things.
Yes, a same-day update.
I performed "The Suction Test" on both the front & back of the Safe Light, and found no leakage. So I have decided to upgrade its rating by star. This upgrade gives it 4 stars and places the Safe Light in "The Trophy Case" on this website.

UPDATE: 01-24-07
I have found that if you rotate the unit and its clip so the end of the clip faces the front of the flashlight, you really *CAN* attach a lanyard to the hole in the end of the clip, and subsequently carry it around your neck.

Because of this finding, I have decided to upgrade the Safe Light Super Bright to 5 full stars!!!

Good color rendition (white LED version)
Doesn't discolor badly when battery runs down
Multiple lighting modes
Has a very low-intensity "find me" mode
Handy-dandy clip
Not all that expensive for a decent lighting instrument
