World's cheapest key-chain LED light




No, not a misprint.

When they came out in 1995, they cost $20 apiece.

The company that initially sold them to the public still charges $20 for one.


If you spend a little time noodling around online you can find them for as little as $8.40.

This site sells 'em in bulk, 20 for $20.

Your choice of white, blue, or red.

Sliding on/off switch so you don't have to squeeze till your fingers go numb.


For $20 you could solve a lot of Xmas gift problems with one fell swoop.
