Boys and Girls,

I was bragging about my dexterity about punching numbers into a combination locks when the subject of this torch arose…

Not going to crap on like I normally do (let’s see that when I hit the [SEND] button)…

I came across these little 9V battery driven torches at one of my local hardware (Gippsland Bearings, Morwell) outlet.

It is a 2 or 6 gang (button selected) LED lights powered by a “standard” 9V battery.

Those that may ask ”How many lumens?”... buggered if I know, but it’s a helluva lot better than a match or a cigarette lighter… and you don’t even have to be a smoker… just alarmist (read on)...

If you are anyway safety conscious with smoke alarms, you are advised to change the battery every 6 months. Now unless you cook with a lot of grease, the chances of the smoke detector screaming in your ear may be minimal, which means that the replaced 9V battery still has plenty of juice.

I have been using these torches for about 8 years and have never had to buy a new battery for one… (one day I might even turn one on to see if they still work [c’mon just gagging]).

When I first saw them, I bought about 20 of them ($6 each, including battery) and used them as little gifts to any unfortunate that decided to visit me… all were grateful and I needed the bribe to bolster my friend quota.
From Gallery picture #1 you may summise I haven’t that many friends… just another gagging, I have a torch in nearly every room of the house and I do replenish by bribing stockpile on occasions.

I’ve gotten 8 or 9 of these mini flash lights from different truckstops over the years. Mine are all yellow instead of black. I keep these in all my vehicles, shop, and in the house.. I paid $1.99 each, and they’re well worth it, in a pinch. Space saving verses the larger flashlights. Not meant to replace a main flashlight, but very handy in a pinch.

Looks like I’m preaching to a bloody smart “converted”... You are 110% correct and my intention is to let all the other 1,998,457 fellow LJ’ers (sorry will not name you all) stay out of the dark…

With all the different varieties of battery flashlights out there this one has potential for a cool mini. Never knew they existed. Thanks for sharing Duck.

True, but you need one of these in your phone pocket so you can find your mobile to use as a flasher…

BTW. It’s illegal to use phones in cells here in Australia.
