Every audiologist needs an ear light, right? I just came across a new energy efficient LED light that is worth a shout out. The Econ LED Ear Light with Probe Tip (item# 12AAAPen-B) is available for less than seven dollars but don’t let the price fool you; despite the low price point, this ear light feels substantial when held in the hand. The LED is designed to last 100,000 hours. Let me do the math for you. Should you choose to leave the Econ LED Ear Light with Probe Tip continuously in the ON position 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, other than needing to change out the batteries (two AAA required), the bulb would last almost 11.5 years. Unless you are Larry Mazzeo of Rolla, Missouri, I know of no other audiologist working 24/7. So, for seven bucks, you have a product whose LED bulb is designed to last close to 50 years.
What is the catch? There really isn’t one other than the actual LED light has Rayovac etched on its anodized aluminum body. The product comes pre-packaged with two AAA batteries. Oaktree Products also includes a straight probe tip, making it the perfect ear light for ear dam insertion. The even better news is that the Econ LED Ear Light will accommodate the Led Lenser straight probe tip (item# 24141) as well as the stainless steel (item# 24144) and nylon wax loops (item# 24145). So, even if you have a propensity to lose things, seven dollars for an awesome ear light is a worthy investment.
