Lithium Ion Reliability: This pistol grip red LED spotlight contains an integral lithium ion battery pack for the highest reliability and durability possible. This unit charges in 2.5 hours and provides 16 hours of runtime when fully charged. The lithium ion batteries used in this unit do not require special charging practices to preserve their effectiveness or longevity and can be recharged when only halfway depleted or only charged to a fraction of their full capacity and will not suffer from degradation or battery memory issues. This means you do not need to wait until the batteries are fully depleted before recharging them, nor do you need to allow them to fully recharge before using the unit. This unit can be partially recharged, used, then the recharging process can be finished later as time allows without any loss of battery life as would happen with NiCad batteries if they were used in this manner. This allows users to use this unit at any time without having to follow complex or highly inconvenient battery charging procedures. Finally, these batteries hold their charge for up to 12 months, allowing users to avoid the need for constant maintenance charging.
Durability-Convenience: The RL-85-3W1-RED Red LED Pistol Grip Spotlight contains a single red LED that is fully potted within a machined aluminum lamp housing and protected by a thick Lexan lens. This LED has an expected life span of 50,000+ hours and the entire LED lamp housing can be removed and replaced. This light is constructed of UV, water and impact resistant materials including a handle constructed of high impact nylon for extreme durability and resistance to damage from vibrations, shocks and impacts. The machined aluminum lamp housing is finished with an anodized coating for corrosion resistance. 16 gauge wiring is used to connect the internal components and an integral lithium ion battery pack provides 16 hours of runtime and requires 2.5 hours for a full charge. The included universal smart charging unit is compatible with any voltages both domestic and international and plugs into any standard wall outlet. The smart charger that ships with this light operates automatically and will top off the battery and quit once the battery is fully charged, even if the light is left connected to the charger once fully charged.
Versatility: The entire unit weighs only 14 ounces. This light has a 3/8-16 inch brass nut fastener imbedded in the base of the handle to allow mounting this light to a tripod or magnetic base like our MM-2 or MM-5. We also offer permanent mount bases, which can be screwed into the base as well. This unit is fully field serviceable and requires no tools to disassemble or reassemble. This unit is ideal for military, security and law enforcement as well as hunting and any application that requires an extremely durable and effective source of red illumination.
