2009-05-11 — (Hanover Township, Pa.) – Officials at Bright Star Lighting Products have introduced an ultra-bright LED, light emitting diode, penlight, the Ion, to the market. Weighing less than 2 ounces and measuring a mere 6 inches, the Ion offers end users a light small enough to be carried as a backup light but powerful enough to be your primary lighting tool.
“The Ion is the perfect flashlight for a variety of applications (municipal/airlines/fire/construction/utilities/personal use) because of its small size, long life, and overall durability,” said Matt Malcolm, Bright Star Vice President. “Ion’s LED bulb uses less energy and shines longer than traditional incandescent bulbs.” The Ion LED exhibits a piercing beam of 25 lumens; 255 + lux at 3 feet, making it the brightest in the category. Its sleek design is ergonomically constructed with knurled handle that enables a maximum grip and a conveniently located push button switch for easy on and off. All this from a light that can fit in your pocket and retail for less than $30 dollars.
The Ion is cased in durable, corrosion resistant, composite nylon that has a built in magnetic for hands free use and has a knurled grip. It is powered by three AAAA alkaline batteries that provide 20 hours of continuous burn time. Developed specifically for those in the market for an ultra-bright, economical LED, the innovative LED has a run time of at least 10,000 hours.
The Ion is available exclusively through professional distributors.
