    Comments about RadioShack Bright-Red Blinking LED Module:

    Thought this would be just right to "blink" an LED strip, but not enough voltage. The ones I found were set to 12 volts. What the heck, try it. Poof! It is fine for what it intended for, not for what I was trying to do. One day, I will also learn to walk and chew gum at the same time!

    • Alarm Warning

    Comments about RadioShack Bright-Red Blinking LED Module:

    I've used these modules successfully as attention-getters next to alarm warning stickers in street-facing windows. If someone comes close to investigate, they'll see the warning sticker; if they don't come close, they'll probably assume the light is part of an active alarm system. When equipped with fresh alkaline cells, the light flashes are dazzling in their brilliance when one looks directly into the light, and it can easily be seen more than 30 feet (10 m) away, even in the daytime. A fresh set of cells will keep it going for several months, albeit at decreasing brightness as the battery runs down. The tiny circuit board on which the LED is mounted has a small epoxy "glob-top" integrated circuit mounted on the back that controls the flashing, giving it somewhat better performance than blinking LEDs with built-in flash circuits.

    The battery case requires a #0 Phillips screwdriver to remove the security screw before the cover can be slid off, but even without the screw it will work. Should you lose the screw, just slide the cover back in place; secure it with a bit of black electrical tape if you're using it in a vehicle or were vibration is a concern.

        Although in the description of this item, there is no mention of an on/off switch...It does have one.
        This can save battery life tremendously!

          Comments about RadioShack Bright-Red Blinking LED Module:

          After having my aluminum truck toolboxes broken into TWICE and cleaned of all tools (about $2,500 each time), I bought one of these, drilled one hole next to the keylock cylinder and literally taped it in place inside with duct tape. With only the 1/8" blinking LED visible outside, it provided the illusion of a hardwired alarm system, and I was never robbed again over the next five years.

              Ideal to use as a "Flashing Rear End Device" (FRED) on Model Railroad Trains to duplicate the devices used by real railroads in place of a caboose. Can even be used as flashing warning lights on the roof of tall model buildings, a real eye catcher.

                  When this little red light starts blinking, the criminals start thinking, twice that is. And they should, not only should they think this red light means they'll get caught, they always do anyway! Protect your property and potentially your life if crime comes to your door. Friend got his fishing gear stolen right out from under his nose while grilling in the back. After we talked about it, the red LED light was blinking at his side door. Thanks for making it so easy and affordable!!

                    Comments about RadioShack Bright-Red Blinking LED Module:

                    We bought this LED unit exactly two weeks ago at Radio Shack. This semi-outdated and cheap device is great for getting the attention of rescuers to help find your way out of a dark hole, such as when you get lost on a caving trip with the wrong people who don't know what they are doing, are not prepared, and forget how to find their way back to the safety of light! When it gets turned on, it can be seen for hundreds of feet away like an SOS dance party. Our caving team highly recommends this product but hopefully you're smart enough to find your way out before the red lights start blinking. I'd say batteries would last over a month after being turned on more frequently, but contain the energy because you never know when you'll need it most when lost in more scenic and wonderful places!!
