    Are these bad for the LED though? I guess if HTC themselves are offering one I guess not, but I'd hate to damage the light...

    Is lighting an LED bad? Well I suppose in terms of longevity, yes. Using anything wares it down.

    But its not like you're using an umbrella as a parachute. You're using a light as a light.

    One of the advantages of using LEDs is their lifetimes over traditional lamps.

    I would have thought it would be a standard ultra bright led. These generally have a lifetime of around 10000 hours. That's over a year contantly on so it will probably outlast your phone by a good decade or so!!

    Thanks, I'll give it a go, though I'm not sure when I'd use it :)
