Turn your key into a flashlight

Keys embedded directly in LED case

Red Ferret

Once again, simplicity wins above all else--in this case, of all things, manifested in the form of a miniature flashlight.

It seems as though a new LED keychain flashlight comes out almost every day, but who's buying them all? We've had them at various times, but they always end up being too bulky or impractical. Then we saw the "LockLite," which addresses both issues.

Red Ferret says the device, made by True Utility, turns the key itself into a flashlight by embedding it in a case that also houses a bulb and battery for less than $8. We think it's a great idea, as long as we stop losing our keys.
