A retail site called Your-Flashlights.com has the best deal online for the Streamlight Stylus LED Pen Light at $13.95. The pen is 6.21 inches long with a waterproof black aluminum body and a pocket clip. The manufacturer claims it runs up to 60 hours on three AAAA batteries (included in purchase). You also get two settings: blinking or a standard “on” switch.

What’s really cool about this stylus is its red LED pen light can be seen from over a mile away. If you work outside at night, go on midnight earthworm hunts for fishing bait, or enjoy amateur astronomy, you know that red light allows you to direct someone’s vision or illuminate an object without the glaring effect and temporary vision loss that comes with standard lights.

The bottom line: Want to see in the dark with no glare? Go red. And for $14 you can readily pick one up and keep it handy for late-night stargazing.

    “AAAA” battery? There’s such a thing?

  2. Pete D says:

    Yes, there are AAAA batteries.

    Now that all have been made aware of AAAA batteries, flashlights with red LED’s are pretty common. Just Google “Astronomer’s flashlights” and you will find so many you won’t be able to look at all of them in a single day!

    FWIW, many 9V batteries are made up of 6 AAAA batteries (actually just a smidge shorter, but usually work just fine).

    I’ve got a couple of these lights and there somewhat “meh” (bluish tint on the white led, off-axis beam), but someone may have a requirement for which they’re ideal.

    I can recommend the Streamlight Stylus II, use one at work daily. Much nicer light, simple UI (two light level choices, on or off), and they’re relatively inexpensive. Only comes in white led version, though. Yes, there are more powerful white led lights out there in similar form factors, but they’re more expensive and involve stepping through multiple modes.

    That’s nothin, you should see what’s in a car battery.

    This is the old design from Streamlight. Finding AAAA batteries isn’t as easy as you think. The Stylus Pro uses AAA batteries and is only a couple bucks more.

    I meant Stylus Pro (with a nod to SharkBreath).

    +1 on the Streamlight Stylus Pro. Great light. Runs for 7 hours on a pair of common AAA batteries. I carry one in my shirt pocket.

    I’ve cracked open 9V batteries many times since I have one of these flashlights I use at work. Duracell is what I’m tearing into… just so you know, the positive and negative ends are backwards from what you’d expect, the flat end is positive, the end with the “nipple”…hehehehe, is the negative.

    There are 6 cells in a 9V battery, they have a thin metal strip spot welded to them to join them all together. Needle nose pliers are all you need. Don’t cut your fingers.
