Glowing Eyeball, retail $1.99
Manufactured by (Unknown) for Raleys (
Last updated 09-27-08

The Glowing Eyeball is a novelty / seasonal product made specifically for Halloween.

It has three LEDs (one each red, green, and blue) in the "ball" portion that perform a "color wash" effect whenever the product is turned on.

It comes in an all-plastic body (surprise, surprise, surprise ***NOT*** considering it cost less than two dollars!) and feeds from 1 CR2032 lithium coin cell housed in the product's black plastic base.

It is made by an unknown company for being sold at Raleys grocery stores; distributed by Sienna LLC.


To use the Glowing Eyeball, slide the slide switch on the underside of the unit to the "ON" position.

To turn it off, slide the same switch to the "OFF" position.

To change the battery, take a small phillips screwdriver (size #0) and unscrew & remove the three screw holding the bottom plate on. Throw the screws into the graveyard so the zombies find them and drop them into an open grave...O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THOSE!!! So just set them aside instead.
Remove the bottom plate, and set that aside too.

Lift away the switch body, remove the used CR2032 lithium coin cell from the switch body, and dispose of or recycle it as you see fit.

Install a new CR2032 coin cell into the circular opening in the switch body for it, orienting it so that its flat-end (+) positive faces up.

Place the bottom plate back on, and screw in that screw.
Aren't you glad you didn't throw those screws into the graveyard with all those awful, horrible, smelly, yucky zombies now?

Unable to measure current due to how the product was constructed and how it functions.

As a rather important footnote here, I was not able to reassemble the product and have it work after performing this battery change.

O WAIT!!! The battery changing procedure is rather fiddly, but if you pay attention to how things were when removing that bottom plate, the Glowing Eyeball will function properly after changing the battery.

When you replace the battery/switch body assembly, look on the inside wall of the battery compartment for a silvery-colored wire, and align it with the open portion (on the side) of the switch body. THEN you can place the bottom plate back on and screw in those screws.

This is a Halloween novelty light (and a rather cheaply-made one too if I do say so myself - but what did I honestly expect for under $2?), not a flashlight designed to be carried around, thrashed, trashed, and abused. So I won't throw it against the wall, stomp on it, try to drown it in the toliet bowl or the cistern, run over it, swing it against the concrete floor of an outdoor patio, use a small ball peen 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), 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 (that were born to be flashlights and nothing but flashlights) may have inflicted upon them.

So this section of the Glowing Eyeball's evaluation will appear SIGNIFICANTLY more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

Test unit was purchased at Raleys in Sacramento CA. USA on 09-24-08.

Product was made in China.
A product's country of origin really does matter to some people, which is why I published it on this web page.
