Focusable Micro FlashLED Puts out over 4,300 Foot-candles Using only Three
AAA Batteries, Lights for Four Days (96 Hours)
TORRANCE, CA — May 23, 2008 — LEDtronics®, the proven performer in LED technology,
introduces a new Micro High-Power LED Flashlight. While continuing the durability
of its predecessors, the new Micro FlashLED is more powerful than most LED flashlights
on the market today. It has a one-watt, 80-lumen LED chip that emits over 4,300
end foot-candles (4300cd) of bright Cool White (8000 Kelvin) light that’s powerful
enough and lasts long enough to light your way — all the way home. Other LED
light colors are available for qualified customers.
Micro FlashLED operates on three standard, replaceable, AAA-cell-type alkaline
batteries. Since LEDs are 80-90% more energy efficient than incandescent lamps,
the unit operates 20 - 30 times longer than the comparable incandescent flashlight,
providing up to 96 hours or 4 days of continuous illumination at a diminishing
light output rate. It retains 50% of its light output after one hour of continuous
The exterior is made of anodized aluminum to resist corrosion, impact and scratching.
With a brushed aluminum finish, modest styling and sleek form, Micro FlashLED
makes a discrete addition to a lady’s handbag, a schoolchild’s backpack, earthquake
kits, or as an emergency light stored in a car or an RV glove box. The flashlight
fits comfortably in your hand or pocket; to prevent against accidental activation,
Micro FlashLED features a push-button switch in the back of the unit to operate
the LED light. It measures 4.5 inches long and just over an inch wide, and without
batteries weights only 3.5 oz, with 3 AAA batteries, 4.8 oz.
Has a Unique Focusable Lens with Narrow/Wide Beam Lens Design
Micro FlashLED has a unique Focusable Lens with a narrow- and wide-beam lens
design that allows continuous varying of the light beam width from, for example,
a concentrated tiny book size at 10 feet from a wall to lighting the whole wall,
floor to ceiling. This makes Micro FlashLED ideal for hunters, hikers and campers
for illuminating charts, pathways, menus, instruments, emergency lighting. It
becomes indispensable for utility workers, military and police tactical operations,
for cabin lighting while driving at night, keyhole illumination or just about
any situation where a small powerful flashlight can come in handy. Its highly
bright light focused in a criminal’s eyes can cause dizziness in a few seconds.
With an average LED life span of up to 50,000-plus hours (5 years), White LEDs
operate reliably year-after-year. The solid-state design renders LEDs impervious
to electrical and mechanical shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental
fluctuation. Integrated current-limited resistors prevent short-circuiting.
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.
