Pelican Products, Inc. (Pelican), the global leader in the design and manufacture of advanced portable lighting tools, has introduced its slimmest AAA safety certified flashlight - the Pelican™ 1975 LED penlight and its non-certified counterpart, the 1970 LED penlight.
“The new Pelican 1975 LED penlight is a lightweight and powerful safety certified flashlight imbued with legendary Pelican toughness at a great price point,” said Scott Jones, Director of Lighting Sales, Commercial/Government, US. “A great penlight in the field can be invaluable so we developed it for those who operate in the most hazardous environments.”
Engineered with an aluminum core and a nearly indestructible polymer shell, the 1975 LED penlight boasts multiple safety certifications (Class I, II and III, Division 1) for safe usage in nearly any environment, including those where flammable materials, gasses and accelerants are present.
Powered by two AAA alkaline batteries, the 1975 LED penlight is extremely lightweight (X.5 ounces with battery) and shines 117 lumens of clear, brilliant light for up to 2.25 hours of continuous run time. Additional features include a tail cap switch and an integrated clip for easy transport in a shirt pocket.
The similarly designed 1970 LED penlight has a higher lumen count at 139 and a longer run time of 4.25 hours but isn’t safety certified. Also available is the optional low-profile, polymer snap-in helmet light holder which works with both models for true hands free usage.
The new Pelican 1975 LED and Pelican 1970 LED penlights are available for purchase now through Pelican’s stocking dealers. For more information visit www.pelican.com. As with all other Pelican flashlights, they come with the legendary Pelican guarantee of excellence.
