I-Sight® Special Ops Ear Light, retail $TBA (www.synergylab.com.hk...)
Manufactured by Synergy Lab™ Limited (www.synergylab.com.hk)
Last updated 05-04-09

The I-Sight® Special Ops Ear Light is a little LED light that is fastened to your ear so that you can read or perform other tasks in darkness.

A single Nichia white LED is used in this product; this makes it ideal for reading and performing other tasks at night or just for flipping that pesky circuit breaker in a dark basement that you tripped by running the microwave and the toaster simultaneously (together).

Electrically, to use the I-Sight® Special Ops Ear Light, slide the slide switch on the back of the product up (as the illuminator head faces forward and the part with "I-Sight®" embossed into it faces the right) to turn it on.

Slide the same switch to the lower position to turn the product all the way off.

To hook it to your ear, swing the triangular loop out a bit, and gently press it over your earlobe. Part of this triangular loop should now be inside your earlobe, as the photograph below indicates.

The illuminator head may be swivelled over a range of ~45° (I do not own or have access to an instrument for measuring angles - yes, even a simple protractor would suffice here, so this is only an "eyeballed" value!)

Product shown fitted to my right ear.
I'd have normally used a "Phoam Hed Phred" (styrofoam wig modelling form) for this photograph, but my parents forced me to throw it in the dustbin (garbage can) in December 2008 prior to us moving from Sacramento CA. USA to Federal Way WA. USA around New Years Day 2009.

To change the batteries, turn the unit upside-down. You'll see a circular hatch secured with a small screw. Using a small phillips screwdriver (the #0 with a 1.60mm shaft diameter from my set of jeweller's screwdrivers worked well here), unscrew and remove this screw. Walk over to the dustbin (garbage can), drop the screw in, take the bin liner (garbage bag) to the outside wheelie bin (wheeled garbage can), drop it in that one, and wait for garbage day so that the dustman (garbage man) dumps the wheelie bin into his dust lorry (garbage truck) and drives off...O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set it aside instead.

Lift off the circular hatch, and set that aside too.

Tip the two used CR2032 lithium coin cells into your hand, and dispose of or recycle them as you see fit.

Insert two new CR2032 cells into the chamber, orienting both of them so that their button-ends (-) negatives face down toward the bottom of the chamber.

Place the battery hatch back on, and reinsert & gently tighten that screw.
Aren't you glad that you didn't drop that screw into the dustbin (garbage can) now?

Unable to measure the unit's current draw due to how it was constructed.

The Ear Light is designed to be fastened to your ear, 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 cannoñata (I guess I've been watching the TV program "Viva Piñata" too much again - candiosity is usually checked with a laser-type device on a platform with a large readout (located at Piñata Central), a handheld wand that Langston Lickatoad uses, or a pack-of-cards-sized instrument that Fergy Fudgehog uses; and the cannoñata (also located at Piñata Central) is only used to shoot piñatas to piñata parties away from picturesque Piñata Island), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, or inflict upon it punishments that a flashlight in a metal or sturdier plastic body may have inflicted upon it.

This web page look an awful lot like this one?
Thought you'd say so.
That's because the lights are rather similar both in appearance and functionality - they're even made by the same manufacturer.
So I was able to use its web page as a template for this one.

Those colored graphics toward the left (which you may or may not be able to see) are my "Viva Piñata" posters, and that clock on the right that looks like a gigantic wristwatch is my Infinity Optics Clock.
You may also be able to see a Digimon plush (Greymon).

Test unit of this plus three other "ear lights" were sent by A. of Synergy Lab™ Ltd. on 04-26-09, and were received on the morning of 05-01-09.

The sender's full first name is Andrew; I publish this because he is the actual designer of this light.

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

Small & lightweight

Doesn't feel as secure on the ear as I'd prefer
