Larson Electronics' Magnalight.com has added a rechargeable LED flashlight (EXP-LED-51) to its line of explosion-resistant flashlights. The rechargeable LED flashlight delivers high LED light output combined with rugged construction and a variety of lighting modes.
This flashlight is rated Class 1 Division 1 and Class II Division 1 and produces 130 lumens of illumination using a C4 LED rated at 50,000 hours of operational life, according to the company. A dual-switch design allows users to toggle through three different light modes, such as "high", "low" and "dim."
The flashlight has three settings and can be toggled between light levels using the multi-function on/off switch. Simply pressing the switch once activates the light in high mode to produce a powerful 130 lumen light beam and four hours of runtime.
Holding the switch down activates the light in low mode and produces a smaller 50 lumen light beam that will last for up to 12 hours. Extreme runtime is produced by holding the switch down for 10 seconds, which activates the flashlight's dim mode, producing a mild 1.3 lumens of light that can provide a runtime of up to 480 hours.
The LED flashlight comes with a mountable charging base that can be attached to walls or flat surfaces. This allows the user to mount the entire flashlight and charger as a unit in locations the user finds the most convenient. The charging unit acts as a holder and the user simply snaps the light in and out of its charging base as needed.
This is highly convenient in areas where operators regularly enter and exit hazardous locations to check on operations or conditions and need a portable source of illumination. Also included with this flashlight are two charging stands and two cords. Attach one of the charging cords to the stand to gain power then snap the LED flashlight into the charging stand to begin charging the flashlight. A 120-volt wall plug cord (VAC) and 12-volt vehicle cigarette plug cords (VDC) are both included.
"The EXP-LED-51 is a lightweight, rechargeable explosion proof LED flashlight with a convenient snap-in wall mounted charging base," according to Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics' magnalight.com. "Operators looking for varying levels of light intensity, long battery run times and a lightweight, portable Class 1 rated flashlight will find the EXP-LED-51 a useful addition for inspection work and general safety work."
