As far as simple gimmicks go, this new one is a “corker”. As many of you know, I’m a sucker for LED gadgets and have them all over the place. The full title for this winner is (corrected English spelling) “Colourful Diamond Shape USB Rechargeable Wine Cork LED Bottle Light”. Good gimmick or WHAT??
For my first experience, my neighbour Karin introduced me to the little white LED cork lights - thin “rice wire” LEDs powered by 3 little batteries, in the form of a cork, complete with 1M or LEDs and suitable for empty clear wine bottles. Next, we discovered the same thing with 2 metres of wire and full colour, firstly red, green, yellow and blue. The novelty of changing batteries every day or two soon wore off as you can imagine. Learning curve three took us to solar powered versions with magenta, blue, yellow and green lights.
Aside from having a stupid not-really waterproof switch on the side and a cork not the same shape as most wine bottles, this proved to be a winner. I have 6 wine bottles kitted out all over the place and now the entire neighbourhood is following suite – we ALL have them. What better way, given the powerful Spanish summer sunshine (or even the more lacklustre UK summer sunshine), to utilise empty wine bottles?
Well, as it happens, there IS another way – and THIS IS IT. You don’t even need the SUN. The subject of this blog entry is a USB-rechargeable cork with a diamond-shape light on the top and a white light to go inside any colour of bottle – now I don’t even have to recycle the GREEN wine bottles!!! AND instead of plastic, the variety of cork light featured here uses real cork – so a great fit to a typical wine bottle.
In case your next question is “price?” – these are DIRT cheap and good fun. I need MORE. New spelling for “manual” – “manule”.
