Blast from the past: Mini keychain lights

20120320-223131.jpg

I really loved these keychains, or shall I say, charms of joy. Then, I realized later in my life, that these are available on one of my favorite online stores, Dealextreme.

I received my first charm of joy back in 2005 as part of my school’s Children’s Day celebrations. Everyone received different colors. But they all had one thing in common: a sticker with the school’s logo.

Sadly, I’ve lost mine in 2007 and cried deeply. Now, 5 years have passed and earlier today(20/3/12) I was looking at the shelves at Mini Toons and saw…

My charm of joy! Like when Eubie finds his favorite flower on his dad’s hot dog stand. I immediately bought it up and got it home. I tried to turn it on and the light was dim. It was two CR2016’s. 4 screws later, and I replaced the two circles with a CR2032 which was a snug fit because 16 x 2 = 32. I remember replacing the battery in my original one with a CR2025 and having the light come on by itself, of which I later stuck a piece of paper.

Later, an idea came into my head. One of my favorite online stores, Dealextreme(or just “dx” for short) has lots of small (electronic) tidbits and so I went there, to discover lots of different kinds, from standard black and white to colored LEDs, even UV and blinkers. All in that little shell with a button, a switch, and a keychain.

Bonus: Here’s a sneak peek at one of my upcoming projects…
