Draper 08387 Rubber Torch (4 x D Batteries) by Draper
2.0 out of 5 stars Ok...kind of., 29 Mar 2014
Expensive batteries, and old fashioned low light filament bulb.

It isn't.
It doesn't.
It comes in a very smart and professional looking box with everything you need to get it running.
You plug it into the HDMI slot on your flat screen tv, and the unit has a small LED that flickers into life. It requires power to operate , which you can get from either plugging the USB lead into a USB slot on your tv if it has one, or, plug the USB cable into a three pin USB wall plug. I tried both, and both worked perfectly.
