    Here is another testamonial from one of our long time customers..

     For a couple of years now I have been giving my students your lights.  Illuminating a crime scene with them is a great help as they are usually poorly equipped.  The white lights are great for lighting up evidence in the dark.  Agents of the Mexican Attorney General’s Office have been the recipients of these lights and at times I run into ex-students when I travel.  They are always quick to show me their lights and tell me how they have used them.  They are also very, very useful for those who come home late from the bars and have a hard time finding the key hole.  I suspect that having these lights has increased the professionalism of their investigations.   Thanks much.  Roger F. Marshall

    Thank you Roger

    Light Emitting Diode technology has advanced so much recently that a tiny LED keychain light can produce as much light as an old fashioned bulb type flash light did years ago.   You remember those right?  The light was yellow and started going dim soon after you turned it on.  Also, you could forget about needing it to work if it had sat in a drawer for a month or two.  You’d pull it out, shake it or hit it against your other hand for a few seconds of diminishing light.  Now with LEDs you get a ton of light for next to nothing, it can be on your key ring for a year or two and will light up with no coaxing to help you find those coins you dropped in your car.  All that light for a fraction of the cost of a flashlight with convenience that is hard to beat….what a deal.

    Our customer Jon is very impressed with the usefulness of  our mini key lights.  Read what he has to say….

    As an EMT, my partner and I arrived at a large house in the middle of
    the day, shortly after a police officer. Little did we know that the
    power had been turned off. When we needed to search for the patient’s
    medications in a dark bathroom, my partner started to walk to our
    ambulance and the officer started to walk to his patrol car. I instead
    reached into my pocket, pulled out my keychain light, and found her
    medications. Since then, we have one of the lights on all of our bags
    and attached to our clipboard.

    It’s funny how something like a mini key light which many  consider a novelty can be a real lifesaver.

    Mini key lights create quite an effect.

     Read what one of customers had to say about the effect of that hundreds of our mini key lights created at his Easter church service.

    Hi Stan,
        The concert turned out great!  We do this event every year on the Friday before Easter Sunday and it involves music, multi-media, etc.  We had over 1200 in attendance so almost everyone got a light.  We encouraged everyone to shine their lights throughout the 90 minute concert, especially if they saw or heard something they were blessed by.  The lights were blinking on and off all the time which made for a nice effect.  At the end we had the whole congregation stand and join the choir in singing “Marvelous Light Medley” with the words on three large projection screens.  We shut down all the lights and follow spots and everyone held up their lights and it was awesome.  People from young and old really got into it and the whole room was lit up from the effect.  It was very cool and very intense.  It worked out just the way we hoped it would.  One of our guys took some pictures but I haven’t seen them yet.  When I get the disc I’ll send you a few that you would be free to use on your website or anywhere else.  Thanks again for the great deal on the lights, they worked out perfectly and everyone got to take one home and put it on their keychains as a reminder of the great worship service we had.

    Thank you John for taking the time to write and tell us of your service and experience with our mini key lights.

    I see ads and listings for UV LED key chain lights or blacklights as they are sometimes called for as low as 99 cents.  I think to myself, how can they sell them so cheap?  Then upon closer inspection I find out that these UV keychain lights are emitting a type of UV (400nm) light that is useless for the main reasons people want them for.  These uses are for document verification like drivers licenses, credit cards, currencies etc.  This type of UV light is in the 400nm range.  Light energy is measured in nanometers or nm and the lower the  number the more energy it has and 400nm is not a low number when it comes to UV.  As a result it is  cheaper to make and sell.  Many inks and dyes that are UV sensitive won’t show up hardly at all with 400nm UV light especially when there is daylight or artificial light around.  So if you want a UV LED keychain light that is going to show the markings you are looking for you’ll have to pay more.  The best compromise between value and performance in the area is 380-385nm.  These perform well in lighted area and extremely well when area lighting can be reduced.  I have used 365nm UV keychain lights and these work excellently in any condition but as you may have guessed they are quite expensive and are relatively hard to find since there are not many companies who even make them.  So there you have it just another case of buyer beware.

    This is from our customer Jon B.

    “It was late November in the Catskills in New York, and I was heading up
    a mountain under about half a foot of snow. I came across a group of
    four kids with two adult leaders, one of whom was quite sick. I found
    them right at sunset, and they didn’t have a flashlight among them. Our
    obvious choice was to hunker down and wait six hours for a
    search-and-rescue team to walk them out. Instead, I reached into my
    pocket and pack, pulled out 6 keychain lights, and the group walked
    safely off the mountain. As a hiker, I now always carry the six spares
    (for myself or others) at a total weight of only two ounces!”

    We often look at these little keychain lights as novelties but as we can see from Jon’s story they can be a life saver!

    Who is in the market for wholesale led keychain lights?  Typically people who are shopping on behalf of  large groups like churches, schools, government organizations etc.  These are people who won’t find what they need in quantity or pricing even at their local WalMart.  Also, wholesale pricing is relative.  Buying led keychain lights wholesale from China one will get a better price but do you end up paying more in frustration?  Think about it.  How safe is it to send money to some unknown entity half a world away with no recourse if they don’t deliver.  Plus how long will it take?  Is there customs or duties issues?  So when buying wholesale keychain lights make sure  the company you are dealing with is based in the United States and is shipping  from local inventory.  Also, shop where you can pay with a credit card so you have the ability to dispute the charge if you are not satisfied.

    Over the years we’ve had numerous churches purchase large quantities of our led keychain lights for special events.  These events include Christmas, Easter and even July 4th.  The effect can be quite dazzling when a large congregation holds up their keychain lights in a darkened sanctuary!  Then after the service the church member has a useful momento of the service to put on their keychain.

    It goes without saying white is by far the most popular color for LED keychain lights however we do sell a fair number of red and blue keychain lights.  The reasons for this vary but the main advantage for these colors are in situations where lighting is required  when working in the dark and minimal disturbance and eye adjusting is needed.  Here are some examples; a darkened airplane cockpit, when stargazing with telescopes, photographic and x-ray darkrooms, in hospitals when doing rounds at night and checking patients and equipment, sleep study staff again for minimal patient disturbance etc.  The color red seems to be best suited to this purpose and provides workable light while creating minimal disturbance and blue gives a little more light but is still subdued enough for the jobs you have in mind.

    In upcoming blogs I will be writing about the uses our customers have for our little lights.  One use that some of our customers have told me about is attaching the light on their dogs collar when taking their dogs out for a walk or run at night.  They switch the light on then let the dog go and instead of trying to look for their dog they just keep an eye out for the light.  I’m always interested in the uses people come up with for these lights and I would like to here from anyone who has used these lights in unique ways.  Also, I am always on the lookout for new products to carry…any ideas?
