Doxil Flashlight/Laser/Pointer, retail $10.99

Last updated 06-28-12

The Doxil Flashlight/Laser/Pointer is a 3-way device that has the following functions:
  1. White LED flashlight
  2. Red laser pointer
  3. Mechanical pointer
It comes in an all-metal body, operates from three LR41 button cells, and has a mechanical pointer that operates regardless of the batteries' State of Euphoria - er - uh - state of discharge (there I go thinking about the heavy metal band Anthrax again!!!).

This product can really be called a "pointer" not just because the laser falls within CDRH Class IIIa limitations, but because it has a mechanical pointer that extends via a telescoping section built into it.

Measures 5.88" (retracted) and 21.75 " (extended).

"Doxil" is not this product's brand - a little research revealed that Doxil is actually an anti-cancer drug that is administered via injection (needle, hypodermic syringe, etc.). So I believe this is a promotional product that would most likely be found in doctor's offices.


To use the mechanical pointer, hold the product in one hand near or over the pocket clip, and use the other hand to grasp the rounded cap at the bottom and pull them apart. Pull straight out until the unit no longer extends.
Please view the photograph directly below to see this:

In this case, I have it pointing at my Searchlight BBS poster.

To retract the pointer when finished, grasp the unit by the pocket clip with one hand, and push the telescoping pieces back into the unit with the other hand, widest first. Here, since this can probably best explained with a photograph, let's go grab it's off to the Fotomat we go...

To use the LED, press the lower button on the barrel and hold it in to turn it on; release the button to turn it off.

To use the laser, press the upper button on the barrel and hold it in to turn it on; release the button to turn it off.

This instrument comes with a pocket clip, allowing you to carry it clipped into a shirt or pants pocket, reducing the chance that you'll lose it when carried that way.

To change the batteries in your Flashlight/Laser/Pointer, unscrew the unit just below the pocket clip until it comes off, set the longer piece aside, then dump out the dead batteries from the shorter section. Dispose of or recycle them as you see fit.

Drop three new LR41 button cells into the barrel, button-end (-) negative first, and then screw the pointer section back on.

Alternately, stack the cells on a table flat-end (+) positive down, lower the barrel of the light over them, then pinch it off with your finger while picking the light up so the batteries don't fall out. Then screw the pointer portion back on. Many button cell lights and other products powered with button cells are prone to having cells go in cockeyed; this is one way to avoid that.

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

This instrument is reasonably durable, but because it has a laser in it, I won't do the smack test on it. I know you love to see me break things, but it "ain't" "gonna" happen today, folks. So I won't throw it against the wall, stomp on it, try to drown it in the toylet bowl or the cistern, run over it, swing it against the concrete floor of a patio, use a small sledgehammer 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), 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 {In the episode "Les Saves the Day...Again", Paulie Preztail says "Hey, ever wonder why this park's called 'Mount Erupto' anyway?", then Franklin Fizzlybear says "I think its an old native term. Means 'very safe.'"}), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, or inflict upon it punishments that flashlights may have inflicted upon them. So this section of the flashlight / pointer / laser's web page will seem a bit more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight that was born to be a flashlight and nothing but a flashlight.

Water-resistance is minimal at best. When the business-end was suctioned, air had no problems whatsoever passing through it. So please try not to drop it in creeks, rivers, ponds, lakes, oceansides, docksides, puddles of siamese cat pee (what - no plastic cat toliet (litter box)?), 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/Laser/Pointer to smell like seaweed or piss when you go to use it next. Besides, salt (from seawater or wee-wee) can't be very good for the insides.

This LED has a wider viewing angle than usual; this will create an artificially low reading here.

Those rectangular graphic things in the upper right quadrant of this photograph are marquees from:

Sega ''Star Trek''
Atari ''Tempest''
Venture Line ''Looping''
Jaleco ''Exerion''

upright coin-op arcade video games from the 1980s.

And those colored graphics toward the upper left are my "Viva Piņata" posters.

That artifact you see in the previous photograph is not at all visible at this range; the
emitted laser radiation from it also falls well within CDRH Class I (eye-safe) guidelines.
This emission measures just 33.4ĩW (0.0334mW) at ~6.0" (15.24cm).
