CLEVELAND (Aug. 19, 2013) — Maxxeon Inc. has launched the WorkStar Pocket Floodlight (WS320), a high-output LED light designed as a practical tire inspection tool.
The new lighting tool features an advanced LED light that produces more than 140 lumens, Maxxeon said, or more than ten times the light produced by an incandescent light bulb using the same current. The wide-angle floodlight-style beam pattern produced by the light is free from both dark spots and hot spots, the company said.
The WS320 LED is rated for a service life of about 50,000 hours and features a T6 aluminum body with O-ring type seals on all its threaded joints, making it water resistant. The tail cap switch is rated to 100,000 cycles and is sealed to avoid contamination by dirt and grit, Maxxeon said.
Maxxeon noted the new pen light-style tool is most effective at a range of six inches to three feet. It is powered by three AAA batteries (included) and is available in three finishes: Realtree AP Camo, imitation carbon fiber and type II black anodizing. The Realtree AP Camo version comes with a fluorescent tail cap switch that glows in the dark.
The product comes with a one-year replacement warranty and sells for between $35 and $45. More details can be found on the company's website.
