Sometimes you just need a dependable, handy light source. From examining a hornet’s nest above the garage, to directing your family to safety in an emergency, there are thousands of potential uses for an LED Flashlight. G30 and G25—these are the model numbers of two of our most popular LED torches. Below, we compare and contrast the two models, to give you an idea of which one might be better for your needs.
Every COAST knife, tool, and light purchased in North America is protected by our lifetime warranty. To be more specific, our warranty promises that our LED emergency Area lights, knives, lanterns, flashlights, and headlamps will be free of workmanship and material defects for the life of the product owner. We stand behind our labor and choice of materials.
We’re looking forward to 2014 as another great year of creating innovative, exceptional LED flashlights and headlamps, knives, and multi-tools. But before we get too far into the New Year, we want to a look back at the top selling COAST Products in 2013. The most popular COAST Products of last year were:
Whether you’re looking to buy a firearm or simply hoping to take care of the guns you already own, bore inspection is an important step in checking and maintaining a gun’s operability. A strong flashlight is key in inspecting and cleaning bores.
At COAST Products, we are proud of our light painters—those contemporary artists who use COAST LED flashlights to make innovative art. Rather than using paint, these artists pair time-lapse photography and flashlights to create incredible images. As our blog loyal readers know, we sponsor one light painter, Jason D. Page, by equipping him with the powerful LED lights he needs to create his stunning nighttime landscapes and portraits. This post takes a look at a couple of light painting pioneers, Man Ray and Gjon Mili. Not everyone knows about these artists, so a little background information might be handy.
Man Ray, the son of Russian Jewish immigrants, was born Emmanuel Radnitzky in 1890. He was an enigmatic Modernist from New York who later moved to Paris, where he spent most of his career. There, he made contributions to the Dada and Surrealist movements, both part of the Avant-garde art scene of the late teens and early 1920s.
Quick, what’s bright yellow and waterproof to 196 feet? No, it’s not a deep-diving duck, but rather our PX50 LED flashlight. Among diving enthusiasts, the PX50 is the king of underwater flashlights. Just ask Jerry Hall, world record holder for longest freshwater dive. This last August, Jerry spent over 145 hours submerged in a freshwater dive. While below the surface, he relied on HBO’s Band of Brothers to keep him entertained via an underwater TV. And for light, Jerry depended upon the PX50, our incredible waterproof flashlight designed especially for diving.
We designed the PX50 to thrive in nearly any environment. Even 196 feet underwater—that’s about the length of a nineteen-story building—the PX50 LED flashlight will work. Its bright yellow casing makes it easy to see in dim submerged conditions. And the included nylon lanyard will keep the PX50 close at hand.
For automotive mechanics, an LED light is a must-have tool. LED flashlights and headlamps allow car experts to peer deep into engine blocks. Sometimes, a strong, far-reaching beam is needed to diagnose a problem inside the engine. At other times, more scattered LED light is required, for seeing the bigger mechanical picture. Beyond these needs, mechanics’ flashlights should be tough (look for a strong warranty, such as our lifetime guarantee), waterproof (engine liquids are not kind to cheapo torches) and ergonomic.
