TORRANCE, CA — September 30, 1997 — Hikers, hunters and other
outdoorsmen can carry an extra measure of security into the backcountry
with a new compact, Electronic Emergency Strobe available only from LEDtronics®,
Available with an amber or clear lens, the lightweight unit is only 4-1/8
inches tall, yet produces a repeating flash which can be seen up to five
miles away, depending on atmospheric conditions. A Xenon gas tube, the heart
of the unit, will flash continuously 50-70 times a minute for 16 hours,
then continue at a diminishing rate for up to 72 hours when powered by one "D" cell
Small and light enough to be carried by children while hiking, LEDtronics®’ strobe
is ideal for campers, skiers, bicyclists and boaters. Waterproof to a depth
of three feet, it meets U.S. Coast Guard performance standards and features
a stainless-steel pin for attaching to a life jacket, clothing or backpack.
The Emergency Electronic Strobe is available for $24.95 per unit. Discounts
are available for large purchases. The strobe is available in production
quantities in 45-60 days with smaller quantities available to customers
in 1-2 weeks.
