Why LED?

Why buy a LED flashlight?

  1. They are simple. LED stands for light-emitting diode, which is a simple electrical current that only allows the electricity to move in one direction. 
  2. They can last for a long time. The average battery life of a 180 lumen light is 90hrs. And those batteries are sometimes rechargeable.
  3. LEDs are known to be more durable than other lights. The materials that they’re created from help that durability. Temperature control, non-glass components, longer lifespans, lumens, the list really goes on.
  4. Options: These lights, like many others, also come in different shapes, base configurations, focus systems, colors and intensities.
  5. These lights can be created to produce light in various ways, fitting all your needs. Headlamps, handheld, keychain, powerful, waterproof, mounted, survival, outdoors, etc.
  6. Often times, they’re paired with technology. Like Smart Light Technology, for example.

We’re proud of our lights – Shop them here.

Four Colors, Same Quality Light

The P7QC is the first four color handheld flashlight from LED LENSER. Yeah, you heard it, four colors bursting with 220 lumens in white, red, blue or green.

Uses for White: It’s just…light. It’ll help you make any dark place feel like daytime.
Uses for Red: Night vision won’t be compromised with this feature. Many tactical, aviation, safety and military professionals use this feature during late night work.
Uses for Green: Green is less visible than red, great for hunting, signalling and keeping things calm when walking to the campsite without drawing attention to yourself.
Uses for Blue: Blue is most popular for blood tracking scenarios and map reading. Most hunters prefer the blue to help topography lines to stand out in travelling situations.

An updated version of the popular P7 model, the P7QC provides the perfect light to any situation. The P7QC will run for 3 hours on Power mode and up to 50 hours of light on Low Power, all on just four AAA batteries. Find out more and buy yours here today.

SHOT Show

Leatherman and LED LENSER together recently attended the 2014 SHOT Show in Las Vegas. It was a great chance to meet some wonderful people, as well as showcase our wide line of tools, knifes and LED LENSER lights.

Leatherman debuted a tool we’re very excited about; the Leap. The Leap is a tool intended for younger users under supervision from a parent or guardian with the intention of adding more advanced features like the knife or upgrading to a different Leatherman model as they get older and more responsible with the tools. For more details have a look at the video below:

LED LENSER has a whole line of updated flashlights and our new M3R and P7-Quad Color, which are both amazing additions to our collection. Watch below:
