Flexible light from USB port
Posted by: PeteJ

Does anyone know who makes this product?

It's a very small light that has a flexible arm and gets power from a USB port. I guess it's used mostly to make the keyboard visible in the dark (like on long, overnight plane flights).

Thanks in advance,
Pete

Kensington makes the FlyLight.

I've got MCE's USB FlexLight.

I'd bet there are (at least) a few other manufacturers who offer similar products.

I use mine in heavy fog. Haven't used it in years.

There are so many of these out there. Just walk into a CompUSA, or any computer-type store.

I've even seen them at 'Dollar' stores now. I bought several last year from a CompUSA and Microcenter, for giving away, for around $3 a piece...a couple were under $2. Seriously.

You should be able to find a flexy-USB light for laptops at just about any computer store. They're trendy, and useful, and work well for their purpose. I started to use one with my Pismo PowerBook, and it comes in very handy. If you're ever late-night surfing in bed, like I sometimes do, using a USB light is a nice way to not disturb your mate. The light in mine is plenty strong for reading documents, and I find it's one of my most used peripherals.

Yup, CompUSA. OfficeDepot, OfficeMax, etc... has a selection of them. I bought a bunch of them last year as cheap little Christmas gifts to give to coworkers in the office. USB flexi-lites and flexi-fans. I seem to remember the Kensington version of the flexi-lite was more expensive than the generic version. I went with the generics.
