The Pop Up Microlite product is a stick on LED lamp that you can use to illuminate your remote control, your fuse boxes in the cupboard, keyholes, in fact any space where you need easy instant light. We’re not totally sure about the remote control thing, that looks a tad kludgy for couch use, but hey we’re open minded. And the batteries last for 3 years. $9.99 (or 3 for $19.99).
Why do Pop-up Microlites pop up? The extra height is necessary to reduce shadows created by the protruding buttons. However, it’s also important that the product is small and out of the way when not in use and you don’t want some tall light sticking from your remote control all the time. The solution is the patented pop-up which allows them to be tall when on and small when off.
