Flashing Mini Blue Beacon Light
Low Cost Bling
Read the reviews but took a chance. I purchased both the red and blue beacons to mount on my go kart for Halloween. Both lights arrived in perfect working order. The LED light was a little dim but suited my purpose. I did not want the light to be too bright for the parade.

Worked as expected.
Used 2 of these for a project I built for my son. The light is an led and it uses 3 AA batteries. The base is 3.75" wide. It's noisy when running but it wasn't a problem. The wires inside are very small but they shouldn't be a problem it you don't open up the base. (No need to. I was curious)The lens is removable with 3 screws. You shouldn't need to take it off unless the reflector came off in shipping as mine did. It was just a matter of pushing it back on. There is an on/off switch on the side and a jack for a power adapter.

Not a very good purchase
I brought the mini lights for a Halloween party for my granddaughter.The lights did not work properly it made to much noise and ran slow as if the batteries were going dead.I brought new batteries and it still did not change the mini lights function. I would not recommend this product.

Blinking blue light
I purchased one and when it arrived it did not work, I called the company and they sent me another one right away but the second one did not work either. My husband tried to take it apart and fix it but was unable to- Do not buy this product.

not very bright
These lights are not very bright and I wanted to mount them upside down and then they just don't work at all. Disappointed.

Arrived non-working... cheaply made. I would classify as junk.

Well it looked cool
Well i have one of these in red so i wanted a blue one. I got this and it has a spot to plug in put no cord. It takes batteries and even with new ones it did not work. It really is "mini." I like everything else that i ordered, this just does not work.

waste of money
I received the light and the batteries do not stay in place. When I messed with it enough to get the light to work, it was not even bright. Total waste of money. I am not able to use this for the party.

Should Have Paid Attention to the Reviews
I saw all the bad reviews on this product but decided to take a chance and order these anyway since my company was paying for it. Should have listened to the reviews. Neither one of these worked even after we put in batteries and fiddled around with them. Customer service was helpful and credited my account, after telling me to just throw the defective lights away (which should tell you how cheaply they are made). They're very inexpensive, but you still pay for shipping, plus if you needed them to work right away for a party, you'd be disappointed. Better to skip these and go with some other source of lighting. In fact, Oriental Trading should just stop offering these defective products.

Neat idea, but cheaply made, only half of them worked by the end of the night and had to throw most of them away
