|LRI Photon II LED Keychain Micro-Light
The Photon Micro-Light II provides reliable light for any situation. It's micro-size and weight allows you to have it with you always. The long-life lithium battery powers an unbreakable LED in a virtually indestructible case. The multi-function switch adds convenience to the already "brighest-for-its-size personal flashlight."
- Multi-function on/off switch
- Replaceable Lithium battery
- Unbreakable high intensity LED
- Quick release ring
- 24 K gold plated contacts
- Good value
In my opinion, just as good as the similar $20.00 models. Very handy on my keychain....more info
- Good tool to have on your keys
I purchased several of these to use when walking the dogs, putting on my car keys, etc. I'm constantly looking for something with a light and now I have this right at my fingertips. It's very bright and is not clunky on my keys. You can slide the switch forward for constant light or just press the button. Great to have around....more info
- Broke After 4 Days
Key chains are supposed to hold keys. This one broke after 4 days, and all I had were 5 keys and car FOB on it--if I didn't hear the key drop on the ground, I wouldn't have even noticed the shoddy construction fall apart. Subsequently, I bought the 10 pack of lighted key chains from LaFemme for $14.50 total ($1.45/chain) vs. this one which was a total rip-off at $8.50 delivered. Light beam great on both products, so why pay more?
- Real bright
Small, bright, sturdy key latch. Easy to on off a key.Very lite in pocket. Great key chain. Downside have not been able to turn it on without holding it down, I don't mind don't need it on like a flashlight....more info
- Best Keychain Flashlight!!!!
This is by far the best keychain light!!! The best part is the switch so you don't have to strain to keep the button pressed for long periods of time; and the switch is designed so it won't accidentally turn on in your pocket and waste battery!!! It is also extremely bright and durable!!!...more info
- Great gift idea
I bought 4 of the Photon II Micro Keychains for Christmas presents this year. They are surprisingly bright for such a small bulb. The light is also not just a tiny pin point of light but can light up a small room or two car garage enough to make everything reasonably visible. I also bought one for myself. No more fiddling around with the house keys after dark because I forgot to turn on the front porch light. Although I have not changed the battery since it's new, it seems relatively easy to replace the battery should the need arise. The price of the photo II may seem expensive in comparison to other LED keychain lights, however given the durability and lifetime warranty, the photon II is a bargain....more info
- Can't live without it.
This is a tough little light. I've used mine for years without any problems. I take it everywhere on my keychain and don't even notice it's in my pocket. Very, very usefull!...more info
- Performs much better than other keychain lights
You can find keychain flashlights on eBay for $1, but they are ridiculously inferior to this light. I've had mine for a month, and already used it several dozen times. I didn't know how handy these were! These Micro-Light II's use the newer Nichia LED's, which are twice as bright as normal LED's, but use the same amount of power (so these easily outshine most other keychain lights)... It isn't as bright as a hand-held flashlight, but you can easily use this for walking at night if you don't have access to a larger flashlight. The on/off switch also works great and does not accidentally turn on while in my pocket. I really have nothing to complain about this product, except that the price may seem high. In this case though you do get what you pay for. The batteries are two 2016 Li-Ion watch-sized batteries and are easily available at your local mega store or mall.
Beware that these are not very water resistant! I don't think water will permanently damage them, but you may not be able to get a light out of it while it is wet since seems to be no waterproofing on the case....more info
- I see the light
For years I have used a small keychain flashlight. The main problem was that the light was not very bright and the battery drained quickly.
I was looking for a replacement light when I cam across the PhotonMicro-Light II keychain flashlight. I am in law enforcement and use a high end 20,000 candlepower flashlight daily. So, fair or not, any flashlight I use gets compaired to that light.
The Photon kychainf is amazing. It provides an unobstrusted light which lights up the sidewalk, darkened doorways and provides good lighting to eliminate shadows for about a 20 foot range.
I particularly like the switch feature which I use fregurently while I fumble for keys in the dark.
- `That you may have light in the darkest of places'
These lights are simply the greatest -- very bright, long battery life, extremely small, and virtually unbreakable. I keep one on my keychain, one at home and one at the office. They are cheap enough to have a few. This brand is also the best in terms of build quality. I've compared the CompUSA ones, but these are the only ones used by NASA. . ....more info
- Versatile and packable
As a Scout Leader, I have searched for the handiest light source available. The Photon II, although pricey comes awful close to perfect. It's small, much brighter than you'd expect, and you can take it anywhere.
It is especially effective inside the tent---I tied mine to the loop at the top and it filled the tent with enough light for conversation. It makes a great reading light, if you don't mind holding it in your mouth, and it is especially helpful late at night when nature calls.
Good feature is the snap on/off switch--so you don't have to keep applying pressure to the switch.
Bad feature is also the snap on/off switch. If you put it in your pocket on a keychain, sometimes it gets switched on and that runs down the batteries.
A powerful flashlight is the tool of choice for nighttime trail walking, but in a pinch you could use this little guy.
It's also handy around the house or in the car---anywhere you need a dependable source of light....more info
- Look at Inova instead
This review is really about a better alternative to the Photon-II - the Inova Microlight. I purchased the Inova at CompUSA after doing some quick research on the net. The Inova is just as small as the Photon-II and in my opinion is a better design.
1) the case is screw-less; no micro screw-driver required for a battery change.
2) the Inova's small slide switch is easier to operate
3) the Inova's LED is recessed into the case and not exposed
4) the Inova's quick-clip is easier to attach than a split-ring.
All this at a price that is 2/3's the price of the Photo-II. (icing on the cake).
- nice light output and small size
The Photon II is a small light that you can keep on your keychain. The light case is a little bigger than a nickel, and it uses watch-size replaceable batteries. The light output is similar to a 2AA MAG flashlight, which is enough to find your way around in a dark parking garage and up or down steps. It's also enough to find the correct key on your keychain and to see the locks on your car, house, etc....more info
Works well, but similar product can be found for much lower prices....more info
- Makes my life easier
I have extremely poor vision that gets worse in darkened conditions. I found that this little LED "flashlight" is powerful and extremely useful. It always stays within reach on my key chain, and I use it every night.
The Lithium batteries lasted me for a more than a year of hard daily use before needing to be replaced. It is very useful in when trying to see a menu in dimly lit restaurants, but remember to cover about 75% of the LED, as to not disturb others. People like myself who absolutely need to see in these settings (i.e. diabetics who need to check glucose levels at meal time) it becomes indispensable. The light is extremely useful when I navigate for my wife in the car. The light does not disturb her like the dome light.
I purchased one for a friend who is a pilot, since the red light does not effect his night vision; he now keeps an extra one on hand, just in case.
The red light emitted from the LED, can not be seen by deer, which makes useful for hunters in their stands while waiting for light or as backup for a flashlight.
Auto, boat, camping / hiking emergency or survival kit. The LED can be seen for some distance in the dark if looking directly at the source. If you point the light downward, the illumination is not noticeable.
The only con is that the red light does not give much contrast. I have a green light that provides more contrast, but it's hard on the eyes....more info
- Very handy to carry with you on your key chain
This is a very handy little light that is small enough to carry around in your pocket on a keychain. The LED "bulb" is very bright for its size, more than adequate for finding your way around in a dark spot, reading a map, finding key holes, etc with simple thumb press on the button. It has a small switch that will lock the light in the "on" position. I highly recommend this Micro Light II model over the more expensive Micro Light III. The Micro III has more features, but they aren't that useful and mine used up the batteries in just a few weeks. So I bought a Micro II and have been very happy with it. The battery has lasted several months so far....more info
- Very effective
Product was actually a little too strong for what I needed but works great. Arrived in time and in excellent condition....more info
- Tough to beat (literally)
I've used this light for over two years, without any problems. It's lightweight, clips easily to my keychain, and provides a steady beam of light (thanks to the small toggle switch) when I need it. What most impresses me is its unexpected durability: it still works even after (accidentally) going through an entire washer and dryer cycle. ...more info
- Good Stuff
This little light delivered all they said it would. The switch is small but workable. Will definitely buy another if the need is to arise....more info
- Photon with switch
This is not my first Photon light. But it is the first with the little switch to keep it on. I did think about it going on by accident (because of that switch) and wearing down the light. There is more in life to be concerned about than this, so I purchased the product. The light is just as good as the other Photons I own - which is excellent for it's purpose. The switch is not a problem at all. It requires just enough pressure to engage than would, most likely, happen by accident. It's a great little light to have on your keychain, glove compartment, pocket or purse. It was most appreciated when visiting a friends house in a rural neighborhood in Maine and arriving after dark. Highly recommended....more info
- big bang for the buck!
i could not believe the amount of light this thing produces when i first put it on. it's really impressive. turn dark places into day! i am very happy with it...more info
