Thread: Cool little Finger Light at Walmart

  1. #1

    Default Cool little Finger Light at Walmart

    I was checking out the new local Walmart today and saw something called the "Finger Light" at one of the check out isles. It has a blue LED and a little piece of velcro that goes around your finger and it can be adjusted for wear on any part of the finger. The blue LED is very bright! It has a spot beam because the LED sits in the head of the light and only the tip of the LED is exposed slightly. It runs on 3 very small coin cells that can be replaced if you open up a small screw on the underside of the light.
    I have no clue about the runtime, but for under $2 this little guy is pretty neat and has a nice bright beam.

    I think they had these a year ago around Halloween as well. I seem to remember some threads here on CPF about them, although I never found any at my local Walmart. I'm going to have to try and find them again.

    Do they come in white? if they did, it'd be excellent for map reading at night. The blue tends to wash out the colors so they all blend in.

    Wal-Mart seems to have LED lights scattered about the store.
    In the lightbulb section I saw an LED light that clips onto the top of books for reading, and in the automotive section I saw a light that attaches to your seatbelt for pretty much the same purposes.

    I don't think so. I looked for white and red LED's, but they only had blue.

    Yep that's them. I think they are pretty cool considering how much they cost.

    Mut just gave me one of those in white led.

    sure would have came in handy when working on my cummins turbo diesel the other night. tight blind spot headlamp would not reach, but a light attached to fingers would.

    I think I read that the halves maybe glued together. Also somebody has changed out the led.

    It's true, everything is moddable. Here's the world's first Luxeon disposable firelight.

    Look by the checkouts. I had one, tried to mod it but ended up breaking the case.
