Torrance, CA -

Back up has arrived. Pelican™ Products, Inc., the global leader in the design and manufacture of advanced lighting systems and virtually indestructible cases, is leading the LED technology charge by introducing the rechargeable 8060 LED duty/tactical flashlight.

The 8060 LED features an industry-leading, 4 hours of peak (6 hours total) burn time thanks to its Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) rechargeable battery. Advanced, efficient LED technology allows the light to blast 190 lumens of clean, bright light at peak.

For increased utility, the 8060 LED can also function with 4 “C” alkaline batteries in an emergency situation. Remove the NiMH battery pack, insert the alkaline batteries and the light is good for up to 12 hours of use.

With a length of nearly 13 inches and a sturdy weight of 23.2 ounces, the 8060 LED is built to survive in virtually any environment with a chemical/corrosion-resistant, engineering-grade polymer body. The light also sports a serrated lens shroud that alerts the user if the light is left on standing lens down.

The 8060 LED is priced at $259.95 MSRP and comes complete with a charger cord and cradle. Like all Pelican products, the light is backed by a Legendary Lifetime Guarantee of Excellence: “You Break It, We Replace It…Forever”™.
