Light bulb in a wallet

Credit card-size LED light turns on when you lift the bulb.

Pack of 10: $29.34.

Alas, shipping to the U.S. = $28.93 so it comes to $58.27 delivered for 10.

Perhaps you can become a self-declared dealer and sell the ones you don't want for what you paid — or even more, if someone gets a bee in their bonnet and must have one at any cost.

Comment from John from Ohio, up at 4:58 p.m. today: Five for $7.03 with free shipping (via Amazon Prime) here.

John added, "Reviews: Cute, but useless. A firefly has more light. Worthless."

also have one. yes, somewhat worthless for useful illumination (led from below hitting opaque bulb graphic. diffuse but better than nothing - on the other hand small and slim. wouldnt last too long in any real guys overstuffed wallet (at least not mine) but again handy for last resort use (until you forget the button battery died a few years ago when your spare tire went flat!). ALso that price is insane. got mine for 70¢ with free shipping from singapore several years ago. carry on.

I bought one of those from Deal Extreme or maybe Fatwallet/todaystopderals, for under $5.

It is not too impressive.
People should pass on buying this
