Original Press Release:
New 1-Watt LED Flashlight Operates for up to 73 Hours of Illumination on 3 AA-Batteries
TORRANCE, CA - July 1, 2005 - LEDtronics introduces a new, powerful LED FlashLED - the FlashLED FLT-3101. Press the switch and a dazzling 1000 foot-candles of white light erupts from the 1-Watt Luxeon(TM) LEDs. (Luxeon LEDs are the brightest solid-state light source commercially available.) The powerful 1-Watt LED integrates a collimator. This long-lasting LED lamp operates for more than 100,000 hours (10 years). The fully integrated flashlight head (the LED lamp, lens and reflector) optimizes light color, intensity and dispersion. Energy-efficient, FlashLED FLT-3101 operates for 73 hours on three standard alkaline AA-cell batteries. It measures 8.23 (209mm) in length and weighs 2.9 ounces (82.2g) with the batteries installed. Use the FlashLED FLT-3101 as a reliable portable light source for examining instruments, reading maps, navigating trails, inspecting utility conduits, hunting, hiking, policing and makes an excellent reliable safety light to keep in you cars glove-box etc. . . .
Precision manufacturing makes the FlashLED FLT-3101 exceptionally reliable by creating tight connections between components, which prevents the movement of parts and loose connections. A spring loaded in the end cap maintains secure contact between the batteries and the flashlight head. The CNC-machined anodized aluminum housing enables it to withstand the toughest of tasks and working conditions. A sealed rubber switch and o-rings prevent moisture and corrosive agents from seeping in and adversely effecting operation. An etched, crosshatched rubber surface on the barrel aids handling in inclement weather. A removable wrist strap is included.
With an average LED life span of 100,000-plus hours (11 years), LEDs operate reliably year-after-year. Solid-state design renders LEDs impervious to electrical and mechanical shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental fluctuation. LED lamps use only 10% - 20% of the energy consumed by equivalent incandescent lamps that when combined with their maintenance-free operation results in substantial cost savings.
Founded in 1983, LEDtronics leads where others only follow when it comes to designing, manufacturing and packaging state-of-the-art LEDs to meet the world's constantly changing lighting needs. Our inventive product line encompasses an array of direct incandescent lamp replacement Based LEDs, low-cost snap-in and relampable Panel Mount LEDs, high intensity sunlight-visible Discrete LEDs, PCB LEDs circuit board status indicators, surface mount diodes SMT LEDs, full-spectrum rainbow RGB LEDs, Ultraviolet (UV) and Infra-Red (IR) LEDs.
