10xLED 2xAA Flashlight, retail $24.95 (www.quality-items-flashlights.com...)

Last updated 03-16-07

The 10xLED 2xAA flashlight is just that: a flashlight that has 10 white LEDs in it to produce its light, and uses two AA cells to power those LEDs.

It comes in a heavy, powder-coated brass body, and has a rubbery pushbutton switch on the barrel.


This flashlight came to me with batteries already installed; if yours didn't, install them (see directly below) and then you'll be ready to go to town!!!

Press the button on the barrel firmly until it clicks and then release it to get light.
Press and then release the button the same way again to get dark.
This is continuous mode.

For momentary or signalling mode, press the button less firmly (before it clicks) and hold it that way to turn the flashlight on; hold it that way for as long as you need the light. Release the button to turn the flashlight back off.

To change the batteries, unscrew and remove the tailcap, dash it to the floor, and stomp on it with spiked baseball shoes...O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set it aside instead.

Tip the used AA cells out of the barrel and into your hand, and dispose of or recycle them as you see fit.

Slide two new AA cells in the barrel, button-end (+) positive first. Screw the tailcap back on.
Aren't you glad you didn't stomp on that tailcap now?

Measures 471mA on my DMM's 4A scale.

Here's a photograph of the bezel (head), showing the ten white LEDs in there.

The flashlight is heavy and feels sturdy and durable. When I performed the smack test on it (ten whacks against the edge of a concrete stair; five against the tailcap and five against the bezel), only some very, very, very minor denting was found both on the side of the bezel and the side of the tailcap where it was struck.
It worked immediately after the test, but failed shortly thereafter. Unscrewing and removing the bezel, and then screwing it back on corrected the problem, and the flashlight continues to work properly. I don't know if this failure was related to the abuse, or if it was just coincidental, so I will not take any points off here.

This flashlight is lightly sprinkle-resistant, but it is not waterproof or submersible. So please try not to drop it in creeks, rivers, ponds, lakes, oceansides, docksides, puddles of squirrel 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, 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 #1) can't be very good for the insides.

Most LED-Lenser flashlights have a spare switch rubber in the tailcap, but this was not present on this flashlight.
