L.E.D. Wand, retail $18.99 (http://www.niteize.com...)

Wel, thuh kompanie thaat maiks thuh L.E.D. Wand kant spel thuh werdz "night" or "eyes"; but they still make an excellent product.

The L.E.D. Wand is an Inova Microlight and a solid acrylic wand combination. The little flashlight can be used as-is, or inserted into the butt-end of the wand to create a wand that glows quite nicely and still casts a useable beam from its front-end so it can still be used like a flashlight if necessary.

It can be used as a safety wand, dive marker, emergency flare, or beacon (in strobe mode).

 Size of product w/hand to show scale SIZE

The Inova Microlight itself has four modes.

1: Squeeze & release the product once for "high" mode.
2: Squeeze & release the product twice for "low" mode.
3: Squeeze & release the product a third time for "strobe" mode.
4: Squeeze & release the product a fourth time to turn it all the way off.

5: While in "strobe" mode, squeeze and hold like that for five seconds to engage momentary or "signalling" mode.

To restore the light to normal operating mode, squeeze & hold for ~15 seconds until the light extinguishes (goes out).

Just as it reads on the back of many shampoo (or "shampee") bottles, "lather, rinse, repeat". In other words, squeezing and releasing a fifth time puts the Inova Microlight back in "high" mode.

To use the L.E.D. Wand, unscrew & remove the "butt-end" of the wand, turn the included Inova Microlight on to the mode you desire, drop it into the central chamber of the wand with the LED-end going in first, and screw the "butt-end" back in place.
In this configuration, the unit is totally waterproof and even submersible to 1,000 feet (~300 meters); making it ideal to use as a "diver down" marker.

There are compartments in the "butt-end" of the wand (one on each side of the central chamber for holding the light itself) to place spare CR2016 cells (or "batteries" if you prefer) in, so if you need to "reload" out in the boonies, you won't get caught with your pants down so to speak.

This light/wand (well, the "light" portion anyway) uses a pair of CR2016 lithium coin cells. To change them, you will need a small screwdriver or other reasonably sharp instrument.

Near the tail end of the light, you will see a notch between the opaque blue cover and the transparent blue & clear case. Put the screwdriver in the notch at a 45° angle and carefully pry the blue cover up.

This will expose the batteries, which you can dump. You may carefully pry them out with the screwdriver or knife if necessary.

Lay in two new CR2016 lithium coin cells, positive (flat) side facing up - being absolutely, positively, 100% certain that they go *UNDER* the metal "strap" in the battery compartment.

Finally, push the blue top back on until it fits flush with the body.

Unable to measure current usage due to how the product was constructed.

The L.E.D. Wand is intended to be used as a flare/attention getter, not as an EDC (Every Day Carry) flashlight meant to be carried around, thrashed, trashed, and abused - so I won't try to drown it in the cistern (toliet tank) (well, not exactly true - please see below), bash it against a steel rod or against the concrete floor of a porch, let my mother's big dog's ghost or my sister's kitty cats spring a leak (uranate) on it, run over it with a 450lb Celebrity motorised wheelchair, stomp on it, use a small claw hammer in order to bash it open to check it for candiosity, fire it from the cannoņata, drop it down the top of Mt. Erupto (I guess I've been watching the TV program "Viva Piņata" too much again - candiosity is usually checked with a laser-type device on a platform with a large readout (located at Piņata 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 cannoņata (also located at Piņata Central) is only used to shoot piņatas to piņata parties away from picturesque Piņata Island, and Mt. Erupto is an active volcano on Piņata Island), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, send it to Ventax II for Ardra to mess with
*, or perform other indecencies on it that a flashlight might have to have performed on it. So this section of the web page will be ***SIGNIFICANTLY*** more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

The product is advertised to be waterproof and even submersible to 1,000 feet (~300 meters); this of course assumes that the Inova Microlight itself is inside the wand.

Knowing that, let's try "The Toliet Test" and see what happens...

Here's proof that I really performed "The Toliet Test
**" on it (upper photograph is with photoflash; lower photograph is without photoflash).
After letting it bob around in the water (yes, it really does float!) for ~1 minute, I dried the outside off with some bungwipe, and...{spoken like Gomer Pyle} surprise surprise surprise...NOT!!! No water was found inside.

** This test was performed in the cistern (tank), which is the clean part of the commode. Water from here is actually potable (drinkable) if you do not use an "in-tank" bowl cleaner, so the L.E.D. Wand did not have to be disinfected or even disposed of after this test.

Test unit was purchased at a Right Aid store in Federal Way WA. USA on 04-16-09.

It is not stated where this product was made.
A product's country of origin really does matter to some people, which is why I wanted to publish it on this web page.
