TORRANCE, CA — September 7, 2000 — LEDtronics® announces 9mm LED Flashlight Lamps that fit almost any two- or three-cell flashlights. They provide common flashlights with a solid-state, durable, weather-resistant bulb with no gases to heat, filaments to break or glass globes to shatter! Depending upon the model, these LED lamps integrate either one or three 5mm discrete LEDs into a standard 9mm-flange base.

With LEDtronics flashlight LED bulbs, you always have a pure-color light even as battery power dwindles. Additionally, due to LEDs’ low power draw, batteries last a whole lot longer – up to 240 continuous hours! That’s 15-20 times more than when used to power incandescent bulbs. LEDtronics 9mm LED lamps are available in Red (660 nm, 6,000 mcd), Yellow (595 nm, 16,500 mcd), Green (570 nm, 3,000 mcd), Aqua Green (525 nm, 30,000 mcd), Blue (470 nm, 9,000 mcd) and White (8000K) LED color sunlight-visible wavelengths as well as Infrared (850 nm, 880 nm and 940 nm). Red and Green bulbs are ideal for professional and amateur pilots, mariners, navigators, astronomers or anyone who needs to illuminate instruments, charts or inspect equipment under darkened conditions while maintaining night vision. And unlike night-vision filters, red and green LED lamps do not change their transmission characteristics or fade with use. LEDtronics’ Infrared bulbs provide illumination for security surveillance with infrared cameras, goggles, night scopes, etc... .

Solid-state design renders LEDs impervious to electrical and mechanical shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes. With an average life span of 100,000-plus hours (11 years), LED lamps operate 17 times longer than an incandescent lamp! LED lamps are environmentally friendly because they use 80% to 90% less operating power than standard incandescent bulbs. Think of the monetary savings and ecological impact from needing less lamps, maintenance and energy!

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, 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.

Prices for 9mm LED Flashlight Lamps range from $7.50 - $30.00 each depending on the number and color of LEDs.
