This thing about LED lighting has been around for a while, and the interest in LEDs continue. Short for light emitting diodes, LEDs have become a staple in many lighting fixtures. Not only are they relatively affordable, but they have a long life as well. More so, they are available in a wide array of colors, making them the perfect choice for those who like to live a multi-colored life, so to speak.
And speaking of LED and fun, here is THE must-have “gadget” of the week: LED shoelaces flash on and off. How cool is that?
Off the top of my head, I can already imagine countless situations where these shoelaces can come in handy. If you’re stuck in the middle of nowhere and you have no emergency flares – your LED shoelaces can take their place. If the power goes out in your cramped apartment and you don’t have a flashlight or candles – your LED shoelaces can help you see well enough to move around.
For more mundane purposes, I suppose the LED laces can be useful if you jog on the streets at night. There is no way that motorists will miss you then! Also, try walking into a bar, club, pub, or wherever it is that you like going to, with these laces on full power (not that much power is required). You’ll either get thrown out or hailed as the coolest person for the night.
Naturally, the shoelaces are sold per pair, at $4.97 each pair. Important details that you might want to know before ordering yours:
- Length/Diameter: 800×2.8 mm
- LED color: Red
- Flashing mode/speed can be controlled
- Battery: 3V/230mAh
- Weight: 95 g
One thing that they can improve on is the availability of other colors. It’s not like there is a lack of LED colors out there. As for the battery, it is kept safe as the packaging is waterproof. It’s lifespan is approximately 30 hours for continuous light and 70 hours for flashing mode. And don’t worry – the battery is replaceable so you don’t need to buy a new pair of shoelaces.
