Petzl E+lite will let you do this.
Long term lurker here, but 'de-cloaking' now I've got something to contribute! I've found https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07KPFPTSQ/ very useful, just the right size to wear on a lanyard.
I think the item is a red case with a white light.
I don't know how many times I have nearly bought an E lite but --- the immediate Red light might seal it - I never knew it had that option.
(A device for £15 less would be better though !).
P.S. a red sweetie paper does work , it's cheap, but it's not really a practical option
Nope, it’s a red LED, very popular in the Netherlands for bicycle rear lights, usually with a bungy to attach it to the frame. Very bright for close up use though, as long as the battery is fresh.
I agree, it looks like a clear bulb on the picture in the listing, but definitely red light when pressed! £4.03 for 5, and they've lasted pretty well. I think there was one dud, and the battery is sealed in so not replaceable, but the others have lasted for ages with occasional use. This one only goes stays on when you squeeze the main body between thumb and forefinger. The light itself isn't too bright, but definitely good enough e.g. to see my way over guy lines in the dark, or to sort out the right key for a lock.
I saw the image in the sales blurb projecting a reddish light but the word description only says led.
I can't see that version being helmet or bicycle attachment friendly ---
I prefer to see definitive statements on "specifications".
StuartJ, if you have seen one -- then that might clinch it.
Your posts pushed me in the perhaps obvious direction of bicycle red lights.
Found this , for example.
Stuart J --- caught up on yr post.
Or you could consider the True Utility Buttonlite. It's waterproof, USB rechargeable, lasts for hours, weighs 16g and my one cost me £7.99 in Go Outdoors, though that was with an in-store discount. Buttonlite | Personal, handsfree rechargeable light | True Utility®
I also use mine as an ultralight video light for my GoPro.
Third go on the NU25. No more running on 'Moderate' setting. It's all full beam for me. Tripped on a rock Sat, again. My fingers (hand) took the brunt to stop me face planting a tree. Must've sprained much of the of soft tissue in my hand. Swelling easing. At least my Evernew cup wasn't damaged.
Eek. Hope no broken bits.
Yeah. I find that setting ok for walking on easy ground, but I'd definitely want main for faster on rougher terrain.
Just heard yesterday that a friend broke his tibia slipping down a bank while out on a local trail run in daytime.
@Cranston ouch, I hope your ok and it's heals up quickly.
@Mole, ouch. Please pass on my regards if its a mutual friend?
Thank God the Ti cup is OK..
Ta. Me too. I was sure I'd done it (and hoping I haven't). Lucky I hadn't had brekky.
Broken Tibia- hell.
