21 LED Flashlight, retail $TBA (URL not known)
Manufactured by (Unknown Chinese manufacturer)
Last updated 10-15-04

This is a small, handheld flashlight that uses 8 5mm white LEDs to produce its light. A single AA cell in the barrel powers those LEDs, and turning the bezel (head) turns the LEDs on and off.

It comes in an all-aluminum body, but it is not entirely water-resistant. See below for a bit more information about this.


To use this flashlight, be sure it has batteries in it first (see below), and then you'll be ready to roll.

Turn the bezel clockwise (as if tightening it) it to turn the flashlight on.
Turn the bezel counterclockwise (as if loosening it) to turn the flashlight off.

There is a lanyard hole on the tailcap to which you can affix a lanyard (not included) if you wish.

To change the batteries in this flashlight, unscrew and remove the tailcap, throw it in the {vulgar term for poop}bowl, and flush it away...O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set the tailcap aside instead.

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

Slide a new AA cell into the barrel, button-end (+) positive first, and screw the tailcap back on.
Aren't you glad you didn't flush away that tailcap now?

Current draw is 339mA, measured on my DMM's 4A scale.
There is a DC-DC inverter in there, so the LEDs really don't see 42.4mA apiece.

The flashlight appears durable, but after my whack test of ten whacks against concrete (5 against the bezel and 5 against the tailcap), some minor damage was found on the tailcap and on the bezel.

So it probably isn't SUPER durable, but it should be fine after falls onto carpeting, lawns, gardens, woods, or other relatively soft surfaces.

The flashlight is splash-resistant, but it is not waterproof or submersible. It failed the suction test both at the bezel and tailcap. The tailcap is sealed better than the bezel, but it still leaks a bit. So please try not to drop it in creeks, rivers, ponds, lakes, oceansides, docksides, puddles of giraffe 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 mildly to at most moderately bad weather.

If it fell in water and you suspect it got flooded, remove the tailcap and battery, 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 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 wee-wee) can't be very good for the innards.
