Wel, thuh kompanie thaat maiks thuh RiteLite Wireless Undercabinet LED Light kant spel the werds "right" orr "light", but they still make a decent product.

The Wireless Undercabinet LED Light is a nifty little light fixture that uses six bright white LEDs in a tansparent tube that rotates (spins) along its Y-axis (vertically).

Instead of plugging in, this fixture uses three AAA cells for power. You can easily select one of two intensity levels.

* Not found on the Big Lots website; so this URL simply leads to their front door.


To use the Wireless Undercabinet LED Light, feed it three AAA cells first (see directly below), and THEN you can light up that box of Cleanax on the the toliet tank lid or light up that dark closet so that you can stop tripping over brooms, blackened old stinky mops, and vacuum cleaner hoses.

As the light is upside-down and the illuminator head faces you, slide that ribbed baseplate toward the left, and lift it straight off.

Determine where you would like to mount the fixture, and screw the baseplate into whatever surface you're mounting it to with the included screws.

Place the light back over the baseplate, and slide it to the right until you feel it "click" into place and stop moving.

Alternately, you can fasten it where you want using the included "hook and loop" (Velcro) tape.

To turn the unit on in "HIGH" mode, just press & release that silvery button on its front surface.

To turn the unit on in "LOW" mode, just press & release the same button a second time.

To turn the unit off, press & release the button a third time.

The cylindrical (tube-shaped) light head can be swivelled over a ~95° range.

As the light is upside-down and the illuminator head faces you, slide that ribbed baseplate toward the left, and lift it straight off.

Gently press in on the clip on the battery door, and while pressing, remove it. Take it to a bridge over deep water (the Golden Gate Bridge would be ideal; however, the Juneau-Douglas Bridge would also suffice here), and throw it over the side so that it goes "blub blub blub" all the way to the bottom of Gastineau Channel with all of the bowling balls that were lobbed over that bridge in the 1950s and 1960s...O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT !!! So just set it aside instead.

If necessary, remove the used AAA cells from the compartment, and dispose of or recycle them as you see fit.

Insert three new AAA cells into the compartment, orienting them so that their flat-ends (-) negatives face the springs for them in their chambers.

Place the battery door back on, and press near the latch until you hear and feel it "snap" into place.

Place the light's body back over the baseplate, and slide it to the right until you feel it "click" into place and stop moving.
Aren't you glad that you didn't throw that battery door over the side of the Juneau-Douglas Bridge now?

This is what the Jueau-Douglas Bridge looks like...or what it lookED like anyway before it was replaced in 1976.

And this is what the bridge looks like now.

The Wireless Undercabinet LED Light was designed to be used as a semipermanent light fixture in a dry area inside your home, not used as a super sturdy "barrel-style" flashlight in a metal body that won't mind you abusing it. So I won't throw it against the wall, stomp on it, try to drown it in the {vulgar term for feces}bowl or the cistern, run over it, swing it against the concrete floor of a front porch, use a medium ball peen hammer to bash it open in order to check it for candiosity, fire it from the cannoņata (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), a handheld wand that Langston Lickatoad uses, or a pack-of-cards-sized instrument that Fergy Fudgehog uses; and the cannoņata (also located at Piņata Central) is only used to shoot piņatas to piņata parties away from picturesque Piņata Island), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, shoot it into a cosmic string fragment
*, or inflict upon it punishments that a flashlight in a metal or sturdier plastic body may have inflicted upon it.

Beam photograph at ~12".
Measures 71,000mcd (high) and 34,000mcd (low).
These values are lower than normal because the LEDs are spread over a far wider area than they are in a flashlight.

Both meaurements were performed on a Meterman LM631
(now Amprobe LM631A) light meter.

Test unit was purchased at a Big Lots store in Federal Way WA. USA on 06-25-09.

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.
