Super Light, retail $TBA
Manufactured by (Unknown)
Last updated 09-30-09

I'm not certain why they chose to name this product the SUPER light, as there is nothing really "super" about it.

I can tell you right now, that although it will not receive that much coveted {cough, sputter, sound of a water closet flushing} "Zero Stars - Whip Out Your {vulgar term for male ding-a-ling} or Sit on the Commode and {vulgar term for uranate} On It" rating (primarily because it works as intended), it isn't going to rate very highly either.

The Super {cough, sputter, sound of a wall-mounted porcelain uranator flushing} Light is a plastic light that plugs into your vehicle's female cigerette lighter receptacle (now often called an "accessory jack") that provides some amount of usable light for minor roadside emergencies at night like changing a flat tire (or "tyre" if you prefer), adding water to the radiator, and things like that.

It has a small screw-base incandescent light bulb positioned near the bottom of a faceted reflector, and includes a red-colored diffusing cap that fits over the "business-end". It can be simply stood up on its pivoting stand, or affixed to any magnetic (ferrous) surface via the ceramic disk magnet embedded in its stand.

 Size of product w/hand to show scale SIZE

To use the Super {cough, sputter, sound of a wall-mounted porcelain uranator flushing} Light, remove the male cigerette lighter plug from the back of the unit, and extend the cord. I believe this cord was originally designed to be pulled right from the back, but the spool that it's wound on inside this particular unit seems *VERY* tight, and because of this and the small wire diameter, pulling directly on it may very well result in cord breakage. So I use the crank normally employed in stowing this cord, and unwind it that way.

Plug it into the female cigerette lighter receptacle in your vehicle, and assuming this receptacle is "hot", the unit should immediately spring to life.

Deploy it as you see fit.

If desired, the red colored diffuser may be snapped over the light's "business-end"; this allows the unit to function as an aid to visibility for oncoming traffic.

When finished using the Super {cough, sputter, sound of a wall-mounted porcelain uranator flushing} Light, unplug the unit, use the crank on the unit's back to "reel in" the cord, and snap the cigerette lighter plug back into the little compartment for it on the back of the light near the bottom.

Because the Super {cough, sputter, sound of a wall-mounted porcelain uranator flushing} Light is powered exclusively by your vehicle's battery, I do not have battery changing instructions for you.

Current usage measures 304mA on my DMM's 4A scale.

The Super {cough, sputter, sound of a wall-mounted porcelain uranator flushing} Light is made of a rather brittle-feeling plastic, and was also a gift from my (now-deceased) best friend; it wasn't designed to be used as a a flashlight meant to be carried around, thrashed, trashed, and abused. So I won't hit it against the concrete floor of a porch, try to drown it in a toilet, stomp on it, throw it against a wall, throw it at a wall-mounted porcelain urinator to see if it explodes (the light, not the urinator), let my mother's big dog's ghost or my sister's kitty cats spring a leak (uranate) on it, hose it down with a gun, run over it with a 450lb Celebrity motorised wheelchair, stomp on it, use a medium ball peen hammer in order to bash it open to check it for candiosity, fire it from the cannoņata, drop it down the top of Mt. Erupto (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 {aka. "Party Central"}), with a handheld wand that Langston Lickatoad uses, or with a pack-of-cards-sized device that Fergy Fudgehog uses; the cannoņata (also located at Piņata Central) is only used to shoot piņatas to piņata parties away from picturesque Piņata Island, and Mt. Erupto is an active volcano on Piņata Island), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, or perform other indecencies on it that a flashlight might have to have performed on it. So this section of the Super Light' web page will be ***SIGNIFICANTLY*** more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight that was born to be a flashlight and nothing but a flashlight.
