what are these off?

no prizes for guessing as i have no idea what they are!
A mate bought some motorbike bits off ebay and these came in the box. The ebay seller doesnt know what they are either and has stopped responding to my mate.
this is a description he has given;
they have a yellow but see through plastic bit in one end and a black plastic bit in the other with a tiny metal spike coming out of the center of the black plastic

they look like little torches with maybe a rubber button missing to cover the little spike/switch.
But I suppose that would be obvious if it were true so probably wrong.

maybe some kind of distress beacon? looks like it would hange off a belt for hiking or such.

Pretty sure they are the thing security guards carry when patrolling an area. They use these at work. At different locations around the site is a tiny thing (looks like a tiny round battery) glued in place and when the guard patrols, he places the end of that tool onto the battery looking thing and I think it registers the time he patrolled. Someone here in the security industry may know more. Update, Just did a google and they are called "patrol wand". Similiar to this http://www.guard1.co...

Err, you didn't happen to look at other stuff that ebay seller has listed, did you...?
Have they previously offered odd leather apparel, weird piercing jewellery, and really ugly lingerie?
Maybe there's a speed adjustment on these cylindrical things, or possibly a slot for batteries.

You know those 'bikers' - they're into some weird stuff.

HK'ing.

Funny that you were the one person that came up with the filthy idea that these data collectors might be of a dirty use... And to generalise it to the "biker" who represent charities to every good event you could ever think of... Glad I'm gettin outta town from teachers with dirty minds like yours.. Look up "BUACA"....

...when it's a tongue-in-cheek post. (face palm)

For what it's worth, today I actually defended a student, who (for some stupid reason) was being teased for having a biker club/gang member in her family.

Even before the charity activities of biker club/gangs are considered, I'm sure the vast majority of them are totally harmless folk. Just like most tribes/mobs/professions/social-groups I guess :-)

HK'ing.
