Microbrite is a miniature flashlight that will attach to any nine-volt battery, and will light up a room with brilliant light. It contains six LED lights that will last for 100,000 or more hours without burning out. However, if you're doing something that doesn't require extremely bright light, such as reading, you can choose to turn on only two of the lights. This flashlight is small enough to fit in a glove compartment, a purse, or even your pocket, so you can carry it virtually anywhere with you. Unlike big, bulky flashlights, it can also be stored within any drawer in your home.

The Claim

When you use Microbrite, you'll always be able to have bright light ready-at-hand whenever you need it. With all six LED lights turned on, it'll emit a much brighter glow that extends to a much wider area than a standard flashlight does. You'll find it helpful at home when you need to find something in the dark or look at something within a small, dark space. It can also act as a source of light during camping trips and power outages. When you're on the road at night, it'll enable you to clearly see the contents of your trunk when needed, and if you're walking, it'll help you see obstacles on your path.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of Microbrite is $19.99 plus $6.95 shipping, for a total price of $26.94. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page which was taken offline due to Microbrite being discontinued. Microbrite may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.

How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Attach to Battery

    To begin using your Microbrite, simply snap it onto the end of a regular nine-volt battery.

  2. Choose Setting

    For a dim, discreet beam, use the power switch to turn on only two LED lights, and for a brighter beam, use it to turn on all six.

Positive Points

  • Long Lasting

    The LED lights within your Microbrite will burn for at least 100,000 hours, which is much longer than the bulb in a standard flashlight will burn before you need to change the battery.

  • Offers Wide Beam

    While the beam from a standard flashlight may only extend a few feet from the device, the Microbrite's six LED lights are capable of lighting up a whole room.

  • Lightweight

    Unlike big, bulky flashlights that can weigh a couple of pounds each, the Microbrite is very lightweight. Therefore, it's easy for virtually anyone to carry for a long period of time.

  • Compact

    When you attach the Microbrite to a nine-volt battery, it'll only make the battery about an inch longer than normal. The battery and flashlight together will be smaller than a smartphone, and can therefore be carried in a pocket, a small bag, or your glove compartment, with room to spare.

Negative Points

  • Requires Battery

    If you don't have a nine-volt battery on hand, you won't be able to use your Microbrite, as it will not work if it's not connected to this type of battery.

  • Could Get Lost

    Since the Microbrite is small and black, and doesn't come with a clip that'll enable you to attach it to your belt loop, to your keychain, or elsewhere, you may lose track of it. If you misplace a larger flashlight, these are usually easy to see, but a misplaced Microbrite will likely be harder to spot.


  1. Unlocking Door

    If you arrive home in the dark, you may find it difficult to insert your key in the lock so you can enter your place. Fortunately, if you carry your Microbrite with you, you'll be able to turn it on and aim it at the lock so you can fit the key in perfectly.

  2. Walking Dog

    Using your Microbrite will come in handy when you're walking your dog at nighttime. You'll be able to keep yourself and the pooch away from obstacles, and scoop up its waste in a tidy manner.

  3. Looking for Items at Night

    When you're in bed at night, you may want to put your hands on your glasses without having to turn on a lamp or flick on a light switch. If you keep your Microbrite beside you as you sleep, you likely won't need to, as you can use the flashlight to hunt for the glasses or another essential item, such as your smartphone.

  4. Small and Dark Spaces

    You can use your Microbrite to look into small, dark spaces within your home, such as cupboards, tiny closets, or crawlspaces. Plus, if you have a shed that has no electricity, this flashlight will be useful when you need to clearly see the shed's contents.

  5. Power Outages

    If the power goes out at your place, you won't have to worry about being left in the dark, as your Microbrite will be able to illuminate a room for hours.

  6. Camping Trips

    Campsites are often spooky and confusing to navigate at night, but if you turn on your Microbrite while walking, you'll be able to find your way back to your own tent without getting terribly lost. This flashlight will also help you see the items in your tent while it's dark.

  7. Nighttime Driving

    If you keep a Microbrite flashlight in your glove compartment, you'll be able to use it to look through your trunk at night whenever you need to. Moreover, if you think you've dropped something near your car, you can use the flashlight to help you look for it.

  8. Reading

    The Microbrite makes a great reading lamp when you turn only two of the LED lights on. Besides using it to read a book, magazine, or newspaper, you'll be able to use it to read a restaurant menu if you're dining by candlelight.
