The Original Light Painters: Man Ray & Gjon Mili

Tuesday, November 12th, 2013

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.

Product Review on the PX50 Flashlight

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

COAST's PX50 LED Flashlight 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.

LED Flashlights for Automotive Technicians

Andrew replacing starter

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.

Three of the Most Beat Up But Functioning LED Flashlights COAST Has Seen

Thursday, June 27th, 2013

Our LED flashlights are built tough. We design them for reliable use in the harshest professional settings. Where other flashlight manufacturers skimp to save a buck or two, such as on plastic parts, we make sure to choose the durable option that will survive any stress test. For instance, Survival Bros recently put our HP14 flashlight to the test, throwing it down onto rocks and dunking it into water to show its robust performance. We weren’t surprised to hear that the HP14 continued to shine bright throughout this abuse. After all, we include a lifetime guarantee for all of our products against defects in materials and workmanship.

Such antics delight us, as they provide an opportunity to show our dedication to quality construction and design. Here are a few of the most beat up—yet still functioning!—COAST LED flashlights we’ve ever seen.
