New Snap-On® Cordless LED Flashlight Provides Bright Light Anywhere It's Needed
Unique Focused Tri-LED (Light Emitting Diode) Design Intensifies Light Output KENOSHA, Wis., Dec. 8, 2004 - A properly lit workspace is vital to the success of any job in the garage, shop or on the road. But, it's sometimes inconvenient to string corded lights across running motors, in hard-to-reach areas or away from electrical outlets. The Versa Volt Cordless LED Flashlight (CTLED918) is the latest cordless solution from Snap-on Tools Company that features a brilliant and lasting LED (Light Emitting Diode) light source to illuminate nearly any working environment. Similar to a lighthouse beacon, the new flashlight features an innovative design that groups three LEDs together and multiplies light output for maximum illumination. The LED bulbs last up to 10,000 working hours and extend battery life by drawing minimal current. An optional 18-volt battery (CTB3185) provides enough power for the flashlight to operate for more than eight hours. Unlike other LED lights with fixed battery bases, the Snap-on Versa Volt Cordless LED Flashlight features an interchangeable base that can be quickly removed and recharged when batteries are low. A spare battery base allows users to always have a fully charged battery on-hand for uninterrupted use. The flashlight is also compatible with a variety of other Snap-on CTB-style batteries, including 14.4-volt (CTB314), 12-volt (CTB312 and CTB3124) and 9.6-volt (CTB3092) models. Versa Volt battery chargers (CTC318) are available separately from Snap-on Tools for a simple and efficient recharging process. With a hanging strap and hook on the back of the unit, the flashlight can be hung and placed in a number of different positions, freeing up users hands. While on a flat surface, the flashlight rests securely on its back or stands upright on its base. The flashlight head swivels 120 degrees and expands the number of directional angles possible. Detents every 10 degrees lock the head into position and help prevent slipping during movement. Partially pulling the unit's two-position trigger activates the unit for short bursts of light while fully depressing the trigger puts the light into the full-time "on" position for constant illumination. The flashlight is constructed with a high-impact plastic housing capable of enduring repeated and frequent use.
