The microlights I'm using are designed as miniature fishing lure lights that run for 8hrs and come in a variety of colors (red,white,orange, green).
I completely forgot that I ordered them and they showed up this morning so I couldn't help myself in whipping this up.
Each match (light) has a miniature magnet glued on the bottom, then all but the head are painted in black.
The base of the matchbook has a magnetic metal rod so each match can be easily removed or replaced as often as needed and of course it also means they can be stuck to all manner of metallic parts for some temporary emergency lighting. Though they are low power, they are very visible in the dark and produce enough light to walk around without bumping into things and even reading with dark adjusted eyes.
The matches are activated by pushing down on the head and can be switched off by pulling the head to restore it to the original position.
I'm going to stick these in my wallet for who knows what.
I may even forget that they are in there until I need them or until the next time someone says....
"excuse me, have you gotta a light?"
Thanks for reading,
