9-Volt Flashlight: a Simple, Bright Idea

by


This tiny flashlight is about as minimal as it gets. Just snap the little LED light unit onto the top of any 9-volt battery, and voilĂ , you have a fully functional source of illumination.

The compact light includes a trio of super-bright LEDs, which should be plenty for helping you find your keys in the dark. Thankfully, there’s a power switch on top, so you can leave it attached to the battery when not in use. While the design is clearly derivative of Richard Lawson’s 9-volt lights, I find these ones a bit more practical, while Lawson’s are definitely more stylish.

Kikkerland expects to start shipping these 9-Volt flashlights this October, and they should retail for under 10 bucks each.

    9-Volt LED Flashlight…

    Remember that fun little battery lamp from Suck UK? Here’s kind of the same idea, but using a 9-volt battery to create a flashlight.

    Simply attach the light at top of the battery and you now have a handy 3-LED flashlight. Thanks to the on/off s…

    This kind of light is very practical, but hardly new.

    The “original” (as in, it has been around for a long time and is the earliest one I know about) 9-volt snap-on LED light is the Pak-Lite (http://www.9voltlight.com/). These are very well constructed–they are water resistant and have a three-position switch (with high and low on states).

    I also have a 9-volt snap-on 6 LED light from Japan (some unknown Japanese brand) that has a pushbutton switch and a swivel head, so you can stand it up on its end and direct the light at an angle.
