How LED Lights are Redefining Water Sports
Advancements in LED lighting; in particular, LED waterproof flashlights and waterproof emergency beacons have created a new world in which water sports can be enjoyed during night time hours. LED lighting for watercraft improves boating safety by illuminating the vessel to other water traffic or provides location identification for a boat crew that is in need of rescue. Boat lighting is available in a variety of configurations including permanent mounting and handheld. Fixed LED lighting can be attached to any size craft ranging from kayaks and canoes to full size power boats.
In the past, long term illumination required power from large rechargeable marine batteries. That is no longer the case. Highly efficient LED lighting requires significantly less power to operate for hours.
LED lights have changed how water sports are enjoyed. Going out on the water at night can lead to a fantastic fishing experience and a wonderful opportunity to spot wildlife that is nocturnal in nature. Spotting wildlife or fish can be enhanced with the use of green LED flashlight as found in the NightStar Green LED shake light. NightStar flashlights are ideal for water sports because they provide the benefits of no batteries to corrode; they float in an upright position and can withstand abuse that other flashlights are incapable of enduring. Another wonderful advantage of a NightStar shake flashlight is its ability to operate as a signalling device that can be seen at great distances. Simply shaking the flashlight with the glow in the dark switch in the on position produces a bright stroboscopic burst of light.
HaveLight.com offers a variety of LED lighting products, perfectly suited for the marine environment. The Vortex crank flashlight is a must LED flashlight to have when on the water at night. Cranking the flashlight recharges a NiMH battery that produces up to 45 minutes of spotlight or 60 minutes of floodlight illumination. The spotlight illuminates objects up to 100 feet away. The floodlight cast a wide beam that illuminates objects up to 30 feet away. Recharging the battery takes approximately 2 minutes of steady cranking. Vortex also operates as a stroboscopic emergency beacon that can be seen for miles. Another great feature of the Vortex waterproof flashlight is its ability to withstand submersion and float. Oh yea, Vortex also charges cell phones and other low power devices.
