OTYTY Tactical LED Flashlight

This OTYTY Tactical LED Flashlight comes in a durable and handy plastic snap lock box. Inside there is foam rubber on the bottom and top lids to protect the contents. The case has the flashlight with an attached wrist strap, the 18650 rechargeable battery, a cylinder for the 18650 battery, a holder for 3 AAA batteries as an alternate power supply, and a wall charger for the 18650.

I put the 18650 into the charger and plugged it in, figuring I would charge it so it would be ready for use when needed. The green indicator light signified full power status. Had it needed a charge, it would have glowed red instead. So I put the battery into the protective sleeve and inserted both into the barrel. I screwed the back on and pressed the orange power button.

The barrel expands and contracts to zoom: [x1, x250, x500, x1000, and x2000]. The beam at x1 is a small square of light which expands out into a huge circle by x2000. The light is quite bright, though it has a slightly bluish tint to it.

The power button has several different functions that it toggles through; namely, max, med, low brightness, strobe, and SOS. To change the mode, merely soft-press the button until your chosen setting appears.

I could not be more pleased with the accessories, features, and value of this flashlight.

Heiyo Stylus Fine Point Pen for Capacitive Touch Screen Devices – Silver

 

 

 

This Heiyo Stylus Fine Point Rechargeable Pen works well on my daughter’s Fire & and my Fire 8. The pen is the exact size of a new lead pencil. This writing device is only slightly heavier than the regular pencil. It is surprisingly lightweight for the look of it. It is comfortable to hold and has a balanced feel to it.

The pen comes in a box with a charging adapter and a diagram of the parts along with the shortest user manual I have ever seen. A short manual is enough here, as there is nothing too problematic about the pen operation. To start the pen, you press the start button at the top of the unit. A blue light flashes three times across the LED strip to show that it is on. After that activation, no other sign indicates whether the pen is on. Thankfully the pen will shut itself off after two-three minutes, so its charge is not worn down. You never have to worry about turning it off with this power-saving feature built-in.

The pen is compatible with iPads, iPhones, iPods, Kindles, Samsung Galaxy phones, tablets and touchscreen laptops; essentially anything that has a capacitive touch screen. I have noticed no lag when using this on my Kindle. I use it for routine tapping here and there, for simple games, and for writing lists, and feel it is responsive enough overall. There was a slight learning curve for me, as nearly all of my writing is on a computer or electronic device. Seeing my handwriting at first was a bit of a fright, but the longer I use it, the better it looks again.

The stylus tip has not scratched or in any way harmed my devices, which is always a concern as they are costly to replace. I am hoping my daughter will try some art with this pen and test it out with one of her apps. Although a thin fiber fine tip [2.2mm], I use extra-fine generally. When I am making lists or writing in a word processing program or app, I adjust the chosen tip to the finest one available so that I am happier with the control over the lines and with the finished product. I wish that replacing tips was possible with the Heiyo, but it is not at this time.

To charge the stylus, just remove the end cap to reveal the Micro USB underneath. Fit the adapter over the Micro USB and plug into a charging port. The LED indicator will glow with a reddish hue. It is simple and practically fool-proof to use and keep charged for the next time.

The Heiyo Stylus comes with an 18-month warranty and customer service should you ever need it.
