The pet blinker reviewed on Cool Tools is nice, but I’ve used a larger one which I’ve found works much better. They give a full 280 degrees of light, and being a much larger surface area of illumination is a real advantage. I can see my dog in the deep underbrush, even if he’s laying down (where the “dangling” type lights get blocked by leaves and front paws.) We get about 5 months of use out of a single battery in flash mode, which we run for about 1.5 hours a day. We could get longer, but the light starts to dim a bit after that time period.
A cool tool is anything useful that is superior to comparable items. If you think this tool is inferior suggest a better one. You are welcome to insult a tool, but comments containing insults to individual people will be deleted. Corrections of fact are always welcomed, if stated politely. Recommendations of better tools are dearly wanted and may be elevated to the front page.
