TORRANCE, CA — April 27, 2000 — LEDtronics®, the proven performer in LED
technology, introduces the redesigned KeyLED™, a sleek take-along key chain
LED (light emitting diode) flashlight. Crafted with polished anodized aluminum
to resist corrosion, impact and scratches, KeyLED™ packs a powerful bright
light that operates continuously for over 58 hours into a compact light
weight design that fits into your pocket yet is comfortable to grip. The
5mm discrete LEDs are available in five colors: 6Kmcd white, 3Kmcd blue,
7Kmcd yellow, 2Kmcd red and 10Kmcd green. Green and red LED lights preserve
sensitive night vision making them the ideal choice for pilots, navigators
KeyLED™’s clip makes it convenient to attach KeyLED™s to purses, zipper
pulls, backpacks, etc.... Light turns on and off by a twist-activated
switch, which won’t accidentally turn-on and drain the batteries,
and a pulse switch that provides a burst of light when pressed. KeyLED™
operates on three, replaceable, watch-cell type alkaline batteries (DuracellÒ™ PX76A,
