TORRANCE, CA — June 30, 2004 — LEDtronics announces the newest and most powerful addition to their popular line of LED FlashLEDs — the FlashLED FLT-5001 — that surpasses the light output of all its predecessors and rivals incandescent flashlights of equal power. Press the switch and a dazzling 1800 foot-candles of white light erupts from the three 1-Watt Luxeon(tm) LEDs. (Luxeon LEDs are the brightest solid-state light source commercially available.) Each LED features an onboard collimator that focuses the light into tight beam for an intensity of 75 lumens each. The fully integrated flashlight head (the LED lamps, lenses and reflectors) optimizes light color, intensity and dispersion. The FlashLED FLT-5001 comes standard with three white 1-Watt LEDs. These long-lasting LED lamps operate for more than 100,000 hours (10 years). This energy-efficient FlashLED operates for nearly 17 days on three replaceable D-cell batteries. (Batteries are not included with flashlight.) At 12.31" (313mm) the flashlight is just over a foot long and weighs 17.2 ounces (0.488kg) without batteries. Use the FlashLED FLT-5001 as a reliable portable light source for examining instruments, reading maps, navigating trails, inspecting utility conduits, hunting, policing, etc....

Precision manufacturing makes the FlashLED FLT-5001 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 contacts 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 57-inch shoulder 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.
