Whether the evening brings you to the back yard or the backcountry, the Helix Backcountry Rechargeable packs the goods.
A micro-USB port powers up the rechargeable battery that allows this lightweight lantern to put out a bright beam that’s easy on the eyes – perfect for around camp or in your tent.
Helix Backcountry Rechargeable has a unique control surface that is free of buttons, yet gives access to a dimmable white mode well as a dimmable red mode for low profile use. The expanding globe and folding legs help Helix Backcountry Rechargeable to shine over a wide area and pack down to fit easily in hand. The Helix lantern design also incorporates several hanging and spotlight options. The globe can be removed to swap the diffused glow to a direct spot light.
This light is designed for area illumination, and disperses light in a 360 degree pattern to light up a campsite or other area.
Dimmable LEDs provide the precise output needed for a given task, and help conserve battery power for maximum efficiency. Sometimes we use the word dimmability, which isn't exactly a word yet, but we're very fond of it and have faith it will become one.
Lights rated IPX6 have a high level of water resistance; generally they can take quick dunkings, some precipitation and even a strong spray of water. (Although, we've never found lighting products to be all that good at water gun fights.) If water enters the housing of the light, please remove the batteries and dry everything out.
The highest quality LED available. Princeton Tec’s Maxbright LED is extremely bright and efficient. This single LED emits a smooth, powerful, white light useful for a wide range of tasks. Princeton Tec uses collimators or reflectors with the Maxbright LED depending upon the application. Must yell "MAXBRIGHT" when saying term out loud.
Multiple settings on many of our products give you the flexibility to adjust your light’s brightness to illuminate greater distances or to conserve battery power, depending on your needs.
Powered by a rechargeable power source, these lights allow you to plug either the light itself, or an included rechargeable battery in to refuel. Cut down on cost and waste generated by one use batteries.
Product is controlled by the touch of your finger: swiped to the left. Or maybe the right. If you have a fingerprint, this may be the product for you.
Planning to cover some ground and travel light? Maybe it’s the destination – or maybe it’s all the steps between. Either way, lights in this category will help you find your way (or enjoy right where you are) when the sun goes down. (Especially if something goes bump in the night.)
Sleeping under the stars and getting away from it all. Whether you need some light to bustle around the RV after lights out, set up your nomadic home for the night among the pines, or enjoy some campfire time with friends, family (or yourself), these products will serve you well. (Maybe even in a van down by the river, we don't judge.)
When the spirit of adventure leads you to places where daylight is scarce, these lights will help you explore the darkest depths and narrowest canyons. (If Gollum needed a flashlight, he'd check this category.)
Tree stands, duck blinds, jon boats, bass boats, streamside, dockside, backcountry camps – examples of places that have a tendency to be most productive around dawn or dusk. Check out these products to help you make the most of those hours. Also, if this icon is to scale, that is one big bass.
Men and women protecting and serving in all different ways – these lights strive to be as tough, bright and reliable as the people who count on them.
Light is an integral part of survival – whether you’re headed off the grid or experience a loss of power – having your own source of light at hand helps to keep you safe.
Does your job require work in less than ideal environments? Sometimes you need a little extra light, sometimes you need a primary light – and sometimes, that light needs to not only be bright, but be rated to work safely in hazardous conditions.
