Flashlight/Keychain Review

I received a cute little flashlight keychain in the mail a few weeks ago. I would have written this review sooner, but I had a death in the family. I've been wanting to get a flashlight keychain for awhile now, especially since I go to college in the evening and it is typically dark when I walk through the parking lot. This is an LED flashlight that is extra bright and comes in super handy when trying to see your way through the dark or find a key hole in the night time. It also includes a red laser pointer which is nice to have, but honestly, who uses laser pointers? Unless you give lectures and need to point to something, is it really a necessity? Don't get me wrong, my cats love to chase the pointer around the room, but to me, personally, it is not an important aspect of the flashlight.

I have two complaints about the flashlight. First of all, when I got the flashlight, I thought it didn't work because it would not turn on. There was a piece of paper in between the two small batteries which I'm assuming was put there so that the light didn't come on on its own? It would have just been nice if they would have sent a small note explaining about that tiny piece of paper so that I didn't think I got a junk flashlight keychain! Also, the flashlight comes on very easily. It seems to come on a lot when I'm not using it or even using my keys. My kids will start yelling, "Your light is on!". Maybe the button is a bit too sensitive? That's a good way to run down the battery that way. Luckily, the LED light is supposed to have a 100,000 hour life span!

My DH would say, well, during the day reverse one of the batteries so the light can not come on.
He doesn't realize how frustrating it is to have to turn batteries around every time before you want to use a light. (like in a power outtage)I guess you could do it the same time each night. You need one more thing to remember, don't you?

DogsMom: haha, yes I would never remember to do that. With 3 kids, working, and college full time, I'm always forgetting things, don't add another one for me to try to remember!! lol
