Portland, Oregon -- COAST, the co-producer of LED Lenser lighting products, will introduce the new LED Lenser High Performance Line of handheld tactical and professional use LED lights at the 2008 SHOT Show — February 2 - 5 in Las Vegas, Nev.
“Our new line of LED Lenser High Performance lights encompasses the very best in handheld lighting technology,” said the president of COAST, David Brands. “LED Lenser High Performance lights offer the highest light output available in handheld lights with all the advantages of LED technology.”
The new LED Lenser High Performance lights — ideal for law enforcement, emergency, military and outdoor use — represent the most technically advanced, high-powered LED lights ever produced by COAST. LED Lenser’s proprietary optics system designed into every LED Lenser High Performance handheld light, maximizes the usable light output, creating a superior run time and light output advantage compared to standard handheld lights.
The new and improved Advanced Focus System provides a seamless transition from a focused spot to a broad flood beam, eliminating the dark and hot spots typically associated with focusing flashlights. Additionally, many models feature a one-handed Speed Focus System for moving from a spot to a flood beam. A simple push forward or pull back with the thumb on the head of the light adjusts the beam to suit the situation. LED Lenser Quick Cycle switch allows users three light output levels – maximum, high and low. For more information on the LED Lenser High Performance Line, visit http://www.ledlenserhp.com.
LED Lenser P7
Designed for all-around tactical use, the 5.5-inch high performance LED Lenser P7 (HP8407) features a lumens output of 138 and a burn time of 96 hours on four (AAA) alkaline batteries. With a tactical rear switch and the slide focus system, users can transition from a flood light to spot light and to three output levels, all with one hand.
LED Lenser Light Cannon
The LED Lenser Light Cannon (HP8437) is the brightest handheld LED flashlight ever produced for retail sale. Featuring a whopping 1,280 lumens of light output, this seven-LED handheld light is 10.5 inches in length and runs on four D-cell alkaline batteries. The Light Cannon also includes the Speed Focus System for a broad or narrow beam without the use of filters or twist functions.
LED Lenser Technology Lights Up The Competition
In addition to LED Lenser Reflector technology designed for incredible brightness and depth of beam, COAST’s LED Lenser handheld lights feature advanced thermal management technology to ensure the LEDs burn brightly for 100,000 hours while increasing battery run time. The Power Transformation Technology (PTT) uses microprocessors to regulate light output.
For instance, for 200 hours of run time, a standard COAST LED Lenser handheld light uses eight batteries and the LED never needs to be replaced; it will require 80 batteries and 17 bulb replacements to run a standard incandescent light for 200 hours.
