If you’ve never been camping with an LED lantern before, we recommend trying it! An LED lantern transforms your campsite into a cozy, friendly place. Board games around the picnic table are just awkward with flashlights; add an LED lantern, however, and you have a perfect playing field. Really, any time spent in camp after dark will be better with an LED lantern around.
Tornado season is just around the corner, and hurricane season isn’t far behind. Before the next catastrophe hits, make sure your home and workplace are equipped with LED emergency area lights.

You will need reliable, energy-efficient area lights to get anything done – and to stay safe. Our COAST LED lanterns are an excellent choice, since they boast long run times.
Car mechanics may spend hours at a time underneath cars and trucks, straining to peer deep into engine blocks. A high-quality LED headlamp is crucial in such circumstances. As experienced mechanics can vouch, the cheapo headlamps from drugstores just can’t stand up to the rigors of the car shop. And it’s just plain awkward to cradle a flashlight under your chin while using both hands for repairs. To serve mechanics well, LED lighting must be hands-free and reliable.

Our newest line of LED lighting – rechargeable flashlights – debuted at the 2012 AAPEX show and will soon be available to consumers! The A9R rechargeable penlight is ideal for inspections and includes a charging cap that plugs right into the wall. The A25R delivers about 420 lumens and boasts our Pure Beam focusing system, but the really innovative part of this LED emergency flashlight is its range of charging options.

The A25R can also be powered with AAA batteries or with a rechargeable lithium battery.
