Both my inspection mirrors have topped themselves recently :confused:

Having a look on ebay i see there are some with built in led light which would save juggling with the torch and leak spray.

Anyone tried one? Good or bad?

Cheers Jon :)

I have the pocket version, though no LED on board. Can't see any dramas apart from how long the battery would last.

Its similar to what i had before but without the light. Can get normal one for about 2 but led version is 12ish so didn't want to waste beer tokens!

Wouldn't people notice it more when you shove it under the stall walls if it got LEDs on it??? :D


Jokes aside, if you get one with built in lights make sure it operates on standard batteries. In some cases a battery replacement costs more than the actual thing itself was to buy.

(Personally? I use a head torch...)

:cool:

Little "Button" batteries are a pain to find around here. Rather have something like this:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPrFDLl5dOM

Thanks for the replies! I got a cheap 50mm one from the wholesalers in the end! Still might try one of the lighted ones though.
