Light up your life with this 4oz companion that is 7 inches long and provides 40 lumens of power for 8 hours of use on a full charge. This most popular of our hybrid lights gives bright results; is waterproof, floats and fits so well in any glove box or favorite drawer. When the solar collector has discharged or dimmed, simply recharge using any light source including the sun (which is always best); ambient or artificial light. Then store, use and comfortably repeat the process as needed. The HL40 can be stored for 7 years and will retain 90% of the original power provided by two back up #2032 coin cell lithium batteries; which will provide 50 hours of backup power when called upon. Guaranteed to work every time you pick it up and "click"! The HL40 was designed to become your favorite flashlight.
Hybrid Light products, consisting of flashlights, a Camping Light and Spotlight employ solar or collector panels comprised of photovoltaic cells, which capture sunlight and ambient light; as well as artificial and indoor lighting. These panels convert the energy to electrical energy which powers the Hybrid Light's dynamic (and extremely durable) LED bulb which should last over 10 years of continual use.
After an 8 hour charge, the Hybrid Light will efficiently provide up to 8 hours of impressively bright light. Since the Hybrid flashlights are not reliant on batteries, they can be charged over and over again, and will pay for itself within a year of regular use; just in the savings of batteries alone. Yet should the charge from the collector be drained from usage, two lithium backup batteries contained in the flashlight's housing will provide up to 50 hours of light, while the collector resumes the process of recharging the hybrid light. (Simply push the switch a second time to activate the lithium back up battery)
It is reassuring to note that the lithium batteries will hold a charge for Seven (7) years, and provide up to 50 hours of illumination. Unlike alkaline, lithium batteries are highly tolerant to extreme temperatures and are a fraction of the weight of alkaline batteries. What is even more impressive is that when using a lithium battery, the voltage will be maintained for 90% of the lifespan with no dimming effects. With regular and proper use, the Hybrid Light can always receive and maintain a charge from the collector, and therefore will not need to employ the lithium backup battery unless under unusual circumstances.
