    Comments about Porta Brace LI-2 LED Snakelight (Set of 2):

    A precise snap-action pushbutton switch turns on the LED at the end of the 2.9" long flexible shaft which can easily bend 180 degrees. A handy clip on the barrel can be attached to your pocket, hat brim, or any other item that is 1/4" thick. Overall length of the Snakelight is 6.3".The base is magnetic and screws into the lights aluminum body which holds three LR44 1.5-volt alkaline batteries. The batteries + side (with all the writing) faces the magnetic base. My main concern with the Snakelight is that the magnetic base is weak and has a rounded edge. Unfortunately, this combination causes the light to detach from steel surfaces if bumped. Also, the logo is paper and arrived with the corners already lifted- not very Porta Brace-like.

        Very bright and convenient little light that magnets into place when trying to adjust things in the back of a rack unit.

        Disappointing Light

        By LV Dan

        from Las Vegas

        Comments about Porta Brace LI-2 LED Snakelight (Set of 2):

        These lights are handy to have on a camera to read rundowns or scripts.

        However, they have the following negative:

        1. Blue LED puts out unfocussed, low level of light, has very poor contrast and is uncomfortable on the eyes.

        2. Uses three LR44 batteries which are expensive and more difficult to find than other battery types. Plus, not sold in quanties of three.

        3. The batteries that came with the unit were dead.

        4. The back that screws into the bottom to hold the batteries in is easily cross threaded and does not screw in tightly (it often pops out without help). The base is magnetic so the light can suddenly fall off the base and drop the batteries everywhere.

        5. The goose-neck will only hold about 270 degrees of flex so it won't light straight up, only to the side or down (depending on the light is mounted.)

        6. There is a plastic clip to prevent the light from erroneously being turned on. However, it must be removed to actually use the button with one's fingers. So they are easily lost.

        Out of four lights that I have, only one really works good. A second seems to work but I need to find batteries for it.

        On the positive side, they are inexpensive, the magnetic base holds fairly well to some metals, and they are lightweight.
