Magnetic Body Lights

Post by majesti » Fri Feb 18, 2005 1:50 pm

I hope this question is okay for the forum - Is there any way to stop the blinking in those small magnetic body lights so that they stay on constantly? Thanks!

Not sure what that is? Are you talking about some kind of LED accent lighting?

They are little round lamps (about 1/2") that screw and unscrew to turn on and off. They run on two 3v button batteries, and I believe the lighting is LED.

Some how, I feel that the type of unit that you might have is more in the order of one of the series of:
“BODY LIGHTS” :<p>http://www.flashingblinkylights.com/catalog.asp?p=all& <p>And that ultra miniaturized monolithic type of construction utilized there is very likely not that which Flac Dyer is referring to in his unit(s).<p>Note also that this company offers non flashing versions.<p>Further perusal towards the bottom of the products handled list revealed :
BATTERIES AND MAGNETS:

Now, THAT’S my idea of pricing, on that series of silver oxide mini cells…even along with a mini lithium cell….a carded pack of 6-10 cells for 12-15 ¢ . The best I have found at only one Dollar Tree store was typically a dollar for a cell..or the sky is the limit at jewelry stores. 50 Quantities would lean more towards a pooling order of users/friends/relatives and keeping in ones refrig crisper for storage longevity.<p>The magnets shown are certainly of such strength as to be in the rare earth category, such as I have seen used on some ladies brooches retainers that preclude piercing a fine fabric or leather coat….also on some earrings … for intra lobal retention.<p>73's de Edd
