Powerful New LED Flashlight Rivals Brightness Of Incandescent Models

July 21, 2004—LEDtronics' newest and most powerful addition to their popular line of LED FlashLEDs reportedly surpasses the light output of all its predecessors and rivals incandescent flashlights of equal power. The FlashLED FLT-5001 is designed as a reliable portable light source for examining instruments, reading maps, navigating trails, inspecting utility conduits, hunting, policing, and more.

The FlashLED FLT-5001 produces 1800 foot-candles of white light from its three 1-Watt Luxeon LEDs. (Luxeon LEDs are the brightest solid-state light source commercially available, reports LEDtronics.) 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.

These long-lasting LED lamps operate for more than 100,000 hours (10 years). The energy-efficient FlashLED operates for nearly 17 days on three replaceable D-cell batteries (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.

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, and Infra-Red (IR) LEDs.
