For about the price of a non-fat latte, you can treat yourself to something far more useful – a compact pocket light. Determining the usefulness of a product is said to be in the eye of the beholder. But with a battery-operated LED light, the usefulness doesn’t even come into question. It’s common knowledge that everyone should own at least one LED light. It may not perk you up like caffeine, but it can make a huge difference in nighttime, roadside, and weather emergencies. Most LED lights fit right in the palm of your hand and come equipped with impact-resistant casing. Not to mention, they’re just convenient.
The Rayovac pocket light weighs next to nothing, and contains super-bright LED bulbs that can shine up to 100 feet. Whether you’re looking under the hood of your car, searching for lost keys, or rummaging through a pitch-black tent, a compact pocket light comes in handy when you need it most. The oversized on/off switch is great for people with arthritis, poor vision, or impatience. And with just a few Rayovac alkaline AAA batteries, you can run the light for nearly two days straight – up to 42 hours.
The list is large for places to keep your handy pocket light: your glove compartment, purse, backpack, toolkit, tackle box, hunting pack, and nightstand. At just five bucks per pocket light, buying multiple lights has never been more affordable! Our pocket light won’t take up nearly as much room as a standard flashlight, and with its lifetime warranty, you’ll never need to replace it. It’s time to put the power of battery-operated LED lights in the palm of your hand!

You know what they look like. You probably have some in your house. Maybe your strings of Christmas lights this year were lit with them. Maybe you use battery-operated LED lights in your flashlight. But do you really know what LED lights are?
LEDs, or Light-Emitting Diodes, are the Bionic Man of lights. They use scant energy to create more brilliant light, and they have remarkable staying power. Just as with incandescent bulbs, there are LED lights that screw into a base to be powered through a cord, and then there are also battery-operated LED lights. If you’ve seen LEDs, you’ve probably noticed how much brighter and whiter they are compared to incandescent bulbs. That stark light is the product of a phosphorous coating and metal conductor. There’s no need for an incandescent filament, which is the hair-fine wire that heats up to the point of glowing.
To explain what we mean by remarkable staying power, consider this: To get 200 hours of light from your average flashlight, you can expect to burn through 12 incandescent bulbs powered by 234 AA batteries. But you’d need just one LED light and 6 AA batteries to do the same job. The energy cost difference? Try $175 for the incandescent bulb versus just $7 for the LED. Now, that’s remarkable.
Rayovac offers a bounty of battery-operated LED lights, from glow sticks to reading lights. Kids tend to dig our magnetized LED party lights, shaped like little eggs and able to flash an alternating rainbow of colors. Grown-ups tend to enjoy our LED Floating Lantern, which can blast its shine up to 226 meters away. Last but not least – and probably the most important thing to keep on hand in your house and vehicle – are our LED flashlights. We’ve got tons. Because of the remarkable staying power and longer life of battery-operated LED lights, an LED flashlight is just the kind of light you want to have in your emergency kit!
