  • Pelican 2130 Mini Flasher

    Q:

    I need replacement batteries for my flasher.... Pelican 2130 mini flasher

      A:

      Doc, the Mini Flasher comes with two L1154 alkaline button cell batteries. The silver oxide version (SR44) is more expensive but probably more readily available locally. The cheaper alkaline ones are readily available online.

    Q:

    does the Pelican 2130 Mini flasher have an on/off switch? I know that's probably a silly question, but I can't find one in the picture, and no one mentioned it. If it does, I'll be ordering three, if not, I'll keep searching.
    thanks

      A:

      It does not have a physical "switch" but it is turned on and off by simply turning the top portion of the light. I own two of these and I have put them thru the war. I did the worlds toughest mudder race in November and dragged the Pelican thru mud, dirt, deep water, freezing temps; and after 24hrs in those elements, it was still blinking away! Great product! And very easy to turn on/off.

      You turn the light on/off by turning the outside of light to right until it turns on and turning it left until it turns off.

      It does NOT. The bezel rotates to engage/disengage the bulb with the
      battery.

      A:

      There is no "on/off" switch. To turn the light on, you simply twist the the red lens clockwise.

      You twist the red lens to turn it on/off.  Mine is very difficult to turn.  Hope this helps.

      It does not have an on/off button, it is screw on, screw off. Meaning you just rotate the bulb housing to turn it on or off.

      I cannot find mine to be sure, but I am almost completely certain that you
      turn it on and off by slightly screwing/unscrewing the red lens, which is
      o-ring sealed.

      It twists on and off.  Still completely waterproof.
      I think it's awesome, particularly for emergency use.

      The Pelican 2130 is turned on and off by twisting the red cap (no switch). A rubber gasket (black ring in photo) keeps the inside sealed.

      It turns on by screwing the red down onto the housing thereby making
      contact with the battery.

    Pretty weak. Even if the battery can last 130 hours, no one would know you had one on until after someone pulled your corpse out of the water after the motorboat ran over you. It's advantage over an candle is that the wind won't blow it out.

    In dark environment, one might see this light if viewed from a favorable angle, about 35 degrees off the axis of the light. I have seen this light advertised as visible up to 1/2 mile away. Good luck with that. I wouldn't bother with making or selling a low light product if visibility matters.

    The Egear lights surpass this at about the same price.

      It is difficult to turn on and off. It takes both hands and is therefore useless. Pick something else.

              I like the product's concept and overall design, and other reviewers here have been happy with theirs. However after a single evening's use my strobe stopped blinking and will flicker and eventually turn continuously on. Perhaps I was just unlucky.
