Product Overview: USB Battery Packs for Rechargeable LED Flashlights

Monday, July 29th, 2013

Our newest rechargeable LED flashlights are rife with charging options. The A25R, A22R, HP7R, and HP5R may be charged via a standard wall socket, through your car’s DC power, or via the USB connection in your computer. But that’s not all. We’ve also designed these rechargeable torches to be compatible with traditional alkaline batteries as well as the lithium rechargeable cartridges that come with each light.   Today we’re highlighting the accessory product that makes your rechargeable flashlight even more versatile, our USB battery pack. Not only does each COAST rechargeable flashlight come standard with two of these USB battery packs, but this product is perfect for those who require many hours of reliable light.

Technicians, contractors, and mechanics will love how the USB battery pack extends operation times. For instance, let’s say you’re the proud owner of an A22R rechargeable flashlight. You love the 370-foot beam distance, and the 241-lumen output. But the 3 hour 30 minute run time isn’t long enough to power through your whole work day. Here’s where the battery pack comes in handy. Just charge your A22R each night, and pack a fully charged battery pack in your work bag. That way, when the first 3 hour 30 minute period elapses, you can switch to the charged lithium battery and keep on working. Indeed, along with the two that come with our rechargeable torches, you could even purchase multiple battery packs, and keep switching out spent batteries as needed.

There are a number of different ways to measure the quality of an LED flashlight, and not all measurements are the same. For instance, there are at least three ways to measure the light output of an LED bulb: lumens, wattage, and candlepower. There are also many ways to measure how energy efficient an LED flashlight is, but not one method is standard. This makes it difficult to compare features of products made by different companies. Luckily, the ANSI FL1 flashlight standards were recently developed to clearly spell out methods by which manufacturers can test and report on their products. The following are the eight LED features you should look for when buying a new flashlight.
