Ring Micro Cyba-Lite LED Keyring
Advantages: batteries can be replaced, useful
Disadvantages: a bit bulky even though it's light-weight
My university flat is on the first floor, and it is part of a house which has been converted into three separate flats. Being a converted flat means that the stairway leading up to my flat is quite narrow. The stairway used to have a lighting but over the years the switch broke down. Even though we asked the landlord to fix it, it took quite a long time to get our lighting back in the stairway. This mean for about 3 months, we didn't have light in the stairway, which isn't a problem in the daytime. However, during winter when I come back from university, the stairway would be pitch-black and I had to find my way using my spatial senses. Therefore, I thought enough is enough and I need to find some quick solution to this before something bad happens. The quickest and cheapest solution turns out to be this Micro Cyba-Lite LED Keyring.
I went online to look for a LED keyring and this Micro Cyba-Lite LED Keyring got a lot of good reviews so I decided to purchase this using gift vouchers I received from dooyoo. It normally costs £5.99 on amazon.co.uk with free delivery but I kinda got it for free using gift vouchers. The LED keyring comes in a selection of colours, and the one I purchased is a clear blue colour.
The keyring itself is quite light, which is very ideal since I don't want to be adding anymore weight to my uni bag. On the product description, it says the keyring weighs 18 grams, which is alright for a LED keyring. It is not too bulky but it does take up some space, so I just tend to carry it in the inside pocket of my bag rather than my trouser pockets. The LED part of the key ring is oval-shaped and it has a rubber ON button in the centre. It needs 2 x 3v (Part No: CR2016) Lithium batteries to function; the batteries are included when I first purchased this keyring.
As for the durability, the batteries are replaceable which is good news. Everytime I need to open the door, I would leave the light on for about 2 minutes at maximum, so from my approximate calculation, these batteries should last for at least 6 months. I don't use this keyring when I'm on holiday back home, and I just checked the light and it is still working. I've had this keyring for about 9 months by now. I just checked amazon for the batteries, and for a pack of 2x 3v lithium batteries, it costs a quid so it is not expensive to replace the batteries either.
The product description also says that this LED keyring is water resistant but I haven't had the chance to test this out and I don't really want to risk destroying the keyring by leaving it out in the rain. Since I tend to leave my keyring in the inside pocket of my leather book bag with a zip, there's very little chance for keyring to get wet even if it rains. However, this water resistant feature might come in handy for those who likes to keep their keys in the jeans pockets etc.
Overall, this LED keyring is a nice solution to my darkened stairway, which has been fixed now. However, this keyring still comes in handy when I need to find something in the dark or under the furniture. The light isn't the brightest but for a LED torch light, it is pretty reliable. I would recommend this product.
Thank you for reading and reviewing. :) x
