Cool, but do I really need it? After reading this review, I am thinking it could be pretty handy. Small, not in the way, the Brando LED Micro Torch might just be the light that have been missing in all of our lives!
Here’s something clever for those of you don’t think that you have the pocket space for a flashlight…the Brando LED Micro Torch.
The torch measures approximately 2.25″ long x 1.25″ wide and 1/8″ thick. It is composed of silver plastic with a removable battery compartment that is secured with a tiny four-point screw. A round rubberized button activates the two bright white LED lights which shine from the wider end. The entire backside is coated with a very sticky 3M adhesive to enable the torch to be affixed to something that most of us almost always have handy – our mobile phone.
The detector comes with CR1220 batteries already installed, but when they burn out they will be user replaceable. According to the Brando site, a user can expect about 20 hours of life from the batteries.
The two extremely bright white LEDs should have the extraordinarily long life of approximately 100,000 hours, if they are similar to other LED bulbs I have reviewed in the past.
If I didn’t already have the Brando Mobile Torch Bank Note Detector affixed to the back of my mobile phone, then I would put this torch in its place. As it is, I think I will stick it to the back of Sarah’s phone after she gets home from driver’s education tonight. It will give me peace of mind to know that she’ll always have a flashlight handy – since it’s a known fact that she never leaves home without her mobile! [Get the links]
