Last updated 09-05-06

The Energizer Pocket LED is a small LED flashlight, designed to slip into your pocket or attach to a keychain with the included "lobster claw" clasp on a swivel.

It comes in a soft plastic body (bright orange, in this case), has a 5mm white LED on the end to produce its light, and feeds from a pair of included CR2032 lithium coin cells.

This isn't a "Suuuper-DEE-DOOOOOOper" (as Barney the Purple Toilet Dinosaur might say) flashlight, but it's perfectly adequate for general use, and for showing off that "newfangled" LED technology.


To use the Pocket LED flashlight, remove it from the package by cutting down one edge of it with a sharp knife or a pair of household scissors, and remove the product from the package.

Hold it between your thumb and index finger, and squeeze the product for as long as you need light. Release pressure to turn the unit off.

As far as I am able to determine, this product is not intended to have changeable batteries, but the batteries CAN be changed if you wish.

I'll explain that procedure shortly.

Unable to furnish a current reading due to how the product was constructed.

This flashlight appears quite durable, but I don't believe it is too water-resistant. When I had it apart to examine it for a possible battery change, I did not see an O-ring between the case halves. When the LED-end was suctioned on, leakage was detected. So water, milk, diet Pepsi, coffee, urine, root beer, or other liquids could get inside through the seam that runs all around the outside. So please try not to drop it in creeks, rivers, ponds, lakes, oceansides, docksides, puddles of laboratory rat pee, glasses of milk, slush piles, mud puddles, tubs, root beer floats, toilet bowls, cisterns, sinks, cups of coffee, fishtanks, dog water dishes, old yucky wet mops, wall-mounted porcelain urinators, 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 moderately bad weather.

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, got thrown into a glass of milk, fell in a root beer float, 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 seaweed, sour milk, or piss when you go to use it next. Besides, salt (from seawater or urination), lactic acid (from moo juice), or sugar (from root beer & ice cream) can't be very good for the insides.

This appears to be a fairly well-constructed flashlight, provided you don't just beat the living tweedle out of it. The plastic it's made from is soft, not hard & brittle. So it won't shatter or become cracked if you have an accident with it that results in it hitting a hard surface.
