Last updated 05-01-07

The AW-92 Lite-Light is a small flashlight designed to be operated from a 9 volt transistor radio battery. The switching system is deceptively simple; you just rotate the unit on top of its battery; there are no buttons to break or come off.

The LEDs in the Lite-Light are Nichia NSPW500CS; these are approximately two times as bright as they were before (sold as NSPW500BS); so you can be assured that the best & brightest lamps went into the Lite-Light.


To use the Lite-Light, just rotate the unit horizontally until the metal wire on the bottom of the unit connects with the (+) terminal of the battery. To turn it off, just rotate the unit so the (+) contact of the battery no longer touches the metal wire of the Lite-Light.

To change the battery in your Lite-Light, just unsnap the used 9 volt battery from the product, and dispose of or recycle the battery as you see fit.

On the underside of the Lite-Light, look for a small metal cylinder, Place this over the larger of the two contacts on the top of a new 9 volt battery, and press straight down until it snaps into place. There, that's it.

Measures 27.8mA on my DMM's 400mA scale.

This product is meant to be used indoors; it's not a product designed to be carried around, thrashed, trashed, and abused; so I won't try to drown it in 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, stomp on it, run over it with a 400lb Celebrity motorised wheelchair, or perform other indecencies on it that a regular flashlight might have to go through. So this section of the web page will be significantly more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight that was intended to be carried around, holstered, and/or pocketed.

The suggested use of the Lite-Light is to place them in strategic locations, such as in an emergency kit, first-aid kit, dresser, nightstand, shelf, toolbox, tackle box, or other location where the Lite-Light can be quickly found when needed.

If the Lite-Light is placed in a toolbox, tackle box, or other location with metal objects that can "get it on" with the product, please place it in the plastic bag it came in so the battery cannot become shorted out. And if you carry the Lite-Light in a pocket with coins and/or keys, place it in its plastic bag first.

If you wish to keep a second battery with your Lite-Light, place it upside-down in the little plastic bag the Lite-Light comes in, and place the Lite-Light in the same bag rightside-up.

The light produced by the Lite-Light consists of a medium spot surrounded by a wide corona. The central hotspot has a slight but noticeable bluish tint to it; this is perfectly normal with the Nichia NSPW500CS LED though, and is nothing whatsoever to be concerned about.

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