Melbourne, FL – June 4, 2014 – As I am constantly rearranging my fishing tackle and kayak gear box, I am always looking to upgrade when I find a new product that can replace any of my old standby outdoor equipment. I believe I found one that can be real handy on those early mornings before dawn when I am trying to load my kayak at the boat ramp. The Olympia® High Performance LED Flashlight.
I am really jazzed up about LED lights. About one month ago I had the opportunity to attend a Jasper EcoTech LED demonstration of indoor and outdoor lights for parking lots and school facilities. The amount of light produced by a LED lamp is just amazing. Being able to put that kind lighting power in a handheld device is great on so many levels.
Giant International Ltd has developed a line of high performance flashlights, headlamps and two-way radios under the brand name Olympia.
I want to share with you the Olympia RG850 LED flashlight. It is just the right kind of flashlight that fits perfectly in my tackle box or my kayak gear bag. At 5.7” long, it will also fit nicely in my digital camera bag. I like the fact that it can be powered with either a rechargeable battery that is included with the flashlight or two CR123 lithium batteries you can purchase almost anywhere. The micro-USB charging port and USB charger allows you to charge the phone in your car if you have one of those USB port adapters for your cigarette lighter port. The flashlight is waterproof to 2 meters and comes with a carrying case and hand strap. The RG850 has five unique light settings including low, medium, high, strobe and SOS for emergency situations.
Talking about being bright for such a small flashlight, the RG850 features 850 powerful lumens of brightness with a beam distance of 389 meters, enough to illuminate an entire boat dock or your camp area.
At high beam it produces 850 lumens and will shine for about 1.1 hours. The medium beam yields 360 lumens and will shine for about 3 hours. The low beam at 20 lumens will last about 65 hours. Depending on your low light activity, this LED flashlight will last a long time between charges.
The flashlight is crafted from Aircraft-grade aluminum with type III anodized anti-abrasive finish and features an anti-freeze non-slip grip, making it ideal for use with gloves.
So how could you go wrong having one of these babies in your car, kayak, boat or in your tackle or tool box.
Whether you are an avid hiker, hunter, fisherman or simply a backyard camping warrior, the Olympia RG850 flashlight combines powerful lighting with a rugged waterproof design and convenient emergency settings, making it the go to flashlight for every outing.
