    Chad's Crappy Corner & His Final Gadget For His Theme For September, 2017

    Loyal Patreons who wanted to, filled out a short form suggesting a gadget Chad should buy and use as his “Crappy Gadgets Of The Week”. This week a member suggested Chad buy and try the GloveLitf. Huh? The what? Read on.

    As you'll see in the our show Chad had trouble pronouncing the name of this product (and who wouldn't). It's the GloveLitf, a hands free flashlight designed so you can use your hands free to hold other stuff like tools as you work in the dark. Chad thinks this is a total knock-off of what we now realize is the GloveLite. Amazon says: It's a lightweight elastic fabric with nylon loop, comfortable to use - Great work light. Fits left or right hand, quick release velcro catch for EZ on and off. Bright LED lights work with 2 replaceable CR2016 button batteries.


    And Chad's take. At first Chad thought it was alright, but fit quite tight on his wrist. And he said the LED lights were just medium bright. But when Chad went to turn the GloveLite off, it wouldn't go off. Finally after 6 tries it did shut off, but it obvious the on/off switch was clearly broken. So this gadget went from so-so to no-no. It's $8.99 on Amazon, but it was as low as $5.99 on ebay as of 9/29/17, but ebay prices change even faster than Amazon prices.


     Amazon link: $8.99 and Amazon Prime. (Reviews are there too.)
