Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is the Magicfly LED Egg Candler. According to my order history in Amazon we bought this just about a year ago in August of 2015. Talk about an item we use daily, 5-8 dozen duck eggs a day, every day.
If you are just producing eggs for home, getting a bad one, once in a while, is not a problem. For us though, a bad egg to a customer is just not something we can afford. We tried others, in spite of great reviews, we held back on this one. Why? It plugs in vs. using a battery.
So for two years I used three different battery models, none were really super bright and all failed in time. The brightest battery one we found was this one by Brinsea, problem, it actually physically fell apart. Like in the paraphrased words of Ron White, “Fell the F apart”. In two pieces and would not stay together after that.
Then I thought about it, where do we wash and package our eggs, well in our kitchen of course. And there are two quad box outlets right there, so what if it plugs in, that just means no battery to wear out! We we ordered the Magicfly LED Egg Candler and never looked back. Doing the math we have candled 18,000 plus eggs with it and it works as good as the day we bought it.
Nothing else, not even an expensive tactical flashlight lights up an egg like this. Again if you just keep a half dozen birds for home use, likely you don’t need it, but it is still the best value in a candler I have found. The Brinsea that fell apart was twice the money!
