The Stick N Click is a small light that you stick in any place that needs light - behind your car seat, on the inside of the car door, under the kitchen cabinets, in the closet, in the tent, on the boat, in the garage, in a shed, on a backpack, on your bicycle, etc.

It has one white LED powered by three AAA cells in its silvery-grey plastic body; with the same flattish circular shape as and of approximately the size of a hockey puck.

It has a sticky bottom, so you can stick it on virtually any clean flat smooth surface without tools or screws.


The Stick N Click comes *almost* ready to use; feed it first (see directly below) and then you can go to town.

On the back of the Stick N Click, there is square piece of white paper. Remove it to expose the sticky material. Stick the Stick N Click wherever you need a little light: behind your car seat, on the inside of the car door, under the kitchen cabinets, in the closet, in the tent, on the boat, in the garage, in a shed, on a backpack, on your bicycle, on the wall behind the toilet, on the wall above the urinator, etc. Be sure the surface you stick it to is clean, or the Stick N Click may unexpectedly fall off.

Test it on painted surfaces (like walls) first, to be sure it will not peel or remove the paint when you take it down for whatever reason.

Press the center of the window in front of the LED firmly and then release it to turn it on; do the same thing to turn it back off.

Yes, it really is as easy as that.

To change the batteries (assuming the product is already mounted), turn the Stick N Click approximately 1/20th of a turn counterclockwise, and pull it straight off the base.

Remove the three used AAA cells from their chambers, and dispose of or recycle them as you see fit.

Insert three new AAA cells, orienting them according to the polarity markings embossed in the bottom of each battery chamber.

Place the Stick N Click back onto its base, and turn it ~1/20th of a turn clockwise once the unit locks into the base.

Current usage measures 22.2mA on my DMM's 400mA scale.

This product is meant to be used as a household lighting device in a dry area, not as a flashlight meant to be carried around, thrashed, trashed, and abused; so I won't try to flush it down the toilet, bash it against a steel rod or against the concrete floor of a patio, let my housemate's kitty cats go to the bathroom on it, run over it with a 450lb Celebrity electric wheelchair, or perform other indecencies that a regular flashlight might have to go through. So this section of the Stick N Click's web page will be significantly more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

The light emitted by the Stick N Click is a cool white, with just a touch of blue tint. This is a perfectly normal characteristic of 5mm white LEDs though, and is nothing whatsoever to be concerned about.

Products (three units; as they are sold in that multiple) were purchased from the Walter Drake website on 12-02-06, and were received on 12-14-06.

Products were 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.

UPDATE: 01-24-07
I have a rather disturbing report to pass along:

Just had an LED failure in one of these Stick N Click lamps.

These use three AA cells and a 10 ohm resistor in series with a single LED and an on/off switch. There was no smoke or flickering - the LED just went open circuit.

I inspected the LED closely and there's no discoloration on the die cup and the bond wire is still in place. This is the first time I've seen an LED that just quietly went -poof- with no physical signs of distress. Makes me wonder if the others are likely to fail in the same manner.

Another view of same.

And a closeup of the LED itself.

All three photographs were taken by the owner of the failed Stick N Click, and were used with permission.
