The idea of a finger light is nothing new; they have been around for
some time however for the last couple of years Walmart has been selling
what has to be the cheapest finger light you can find. For $1.82, you
can get a finger light that is a flashlight and attaches to your
finger. It is an inch long, uses three button batteries to power a blue
LED and attaches to your finger using Velcro.
The Universal Finger Light does work as it is suppose to but it is
more of a novelty than a practical flashlight. If you are working in a
small area and need some light, it would work well but you would never
be able to use the light to find a dark path in middle of the night.
Where the Finger Light really shines so to speak is by adding
atmosphere for people going clubbing or at a concert. If you put
several people together who had Finger Lights and they started moving
around it would give a cool looking effect in a dark club.
The biggest complaint I have about this product is the batteries are
suppose to be replaceable but I was unable to remove to the cover to
replace the batteries but at the price the flashlight is sold for you
would be better off replacing the entire thing.
I received this a few days ago through our contact page and thought it was worth adding to this page. I do realize it sounds
like a piece of marketing from the manufacture of the Finger Light but
I have no way to prove that it is.

Comment: The Finger light is exactly what it is advertised as....a light for
your finger...Not a Flashlight for finding your way on dark pathways!
I find it odd that some people buy something for what it is Not
intended or advertised, and then complain when it won't perform when
used in a 'misapplication'. As for the batteries, I removed the small
phillips head screw, opened the access door, and removed the
batteries. The batteries are qty. 3 LR1130 watch batteries @
1.5V-68mAh each. Easy to load batteries back into the compartment
(Polarity is cast into the plastic for easy identification)....and
reinstall the screw! Piece of Cake!...and a great little light to boot!
