Measuring just 0.57 x 0.70 x 0.22 inches, NanoLite is the world’s smallest adhesive light designed to be applied on keys and different tools. It was invented by Madeline Canfield, a special education teacher, and developed by January Innovations.

The tiny adhesive light is made from high-density polyethylene and features a compact form factor, which makes it extremely durable, while using built-in night-vision red LED light with a wavelength of 660 nm and 1000-2300 mcd intensity, providing an operating life of up to 10 years.

The energy-efficient LED technology and a 35 mAh Li-Ion battery enable up to 10 years of storage life for NanoLite and up to three years of continuous operating time.
On the back it uses the Advanced VHB Solid Acrylic Adhesive developed by 3M, a company producing various types of strong adhesives for different sectors including airplanes, cell phones, cars and the medical sector. It sticks the light on your key permanently.
The recessed button prevents accidental battery discharge and, thanks to the smart switch system, it supports up to 10 years of use.

We have received a few samples of NanoLite for review and used one on my apartment door key.
The installation is extremely simple. All you need to do is clean the surface of the key or tool on which you plan to apply NanoLite, then remove the paper backing. Slowly set NanoLite in the right position on the key, leaving the tiny hole for hanging on the keyring free, and position it with the LED light pointed toward the key tip. Take the key in your hand and pretend you are trying to open a door, just to make sure it’s placed in the right position for comfortable use.
If it’s misplaced, move it gently to your desired position.
When you’re done just press the light firmly on the key for a few seconds and then let the adhesive set for about two hours.

Soon after opening the NanoLite package I squeezed the light to see how it works, before applying it on my key. Even if it’s so small I had to press very hard, which I didn’t like because I couldn’t keep it pressed for along time and the light was turning off, but when it’s applied on the key it’s different.
When you’re using a key to open a door you start pressing it hard with your fingers until it enters it the door lock, and having NanoLite on the key in that moment will turn the light on, without requiring squeezing harder.

The light is so small that you won’t even feel it while opening the door and it doesn’t look bulky on the key either.
You can use it on any type of keys, including the one you use for opening the mail box, but in the case of small keys NanoLite will cover the hole for the key ring.

Examples of keys you can apply NanoLite on include home keys, car key, gate key, bike and motorcycle keys, gun lock and RV/Camper keys.
You can even use it for looking inside your purse in dark environments.
