Equipped with an integral carry handle, rear mounted LEDs and articulating head, this portable light is suited to a wide variety of uses including industrial applications, utility work, military and law enforcement, fire/rescue and emergency services.

Made in the USA and designed to provide a rugged lighting solution for use in demanding hazardous locations, the RUL-9 portable and rechargeable light produces 120,000 candlepower and can operate for 5 hours on a single charge of its lithium-ion batteries. Constructed with a high strength nylon body with rubberized coating, this unit is built to withstand demanding service. 

This portable and rechargeable light is designed with lithium-ion batteries which give it a run time of 5 hours on a single charge and require no special charging procedures to maintain battery life. It is not necessary to fully discharge the batteries before recharging, the included charger will not overcharge, and the unit can be left sitting for up to 18 months without losing its charge or a decrease in battery service life. 

The lithium ion battery pack in this portable light also helps this unit achieve a 33% lighter weight than its competitors, an important consideration for firefighters whose basic equipment can already weigh 65-70 lbs. This high power rechargeable light is approved for Class 1 Division 2 hazardous locations, making it ideal for use in industrial and commercial operations where flammable and hazardous atmospheres may be present. 

The single Xenon bulb and specially designed reflector in this light produces 120,000 candlepower and 1102 Lux at 25 feet, making it comparable in effectiveness to a 24 watt HID Powerlight™. The light beam from this portable light can reach over 600 feet in length, making it well suited to utility and emergency services applications as well. This versatile portable light is waterproof and includes a pair of rear mounted red and white LEDs that can act as locator, signal or warning lights as needed. Operation is controlled by a booted, three way push button switch which allows operators to operate the main beam and LEDs independently or in tandem. 

The light head is adjustable and can be moved through 90 degrees of adjustment for optimal beam placement. An included 120 Volt AC wall charger provides easy recharging and will not overcharge the unit, allowing operators to simply leave the light connected to the charging unit when not in use to ensure a full charge anytime the light is needed. 

Magnalight also offers a magnetic mounting system which consists of a 5 inch diameter magnetic base with 200 lbs of gripping force, powder coated steel bracket, and spring loaded fastener. This RUL-9-MB magnetic mounting base is easily attached and detached and allows operators to temporarily attach this unit to any metallic surface to provide a hands free source of illumination that can be positioned however they require. This portable hazardous location light meets NFPA 1901- compliance and is an ideal addition to any industry professionals’ lighting equipment inventory.

Larson Electronics’ has announced the release of the HML-5M-LED Handheld LED Spotlight with magnetic base designed to provide reliable and powerful illumination under tactical and professional conditions. 

Producing 3,600 lumens and pulling only 1.6 amps on 24 volts, this handheld LED spotlight is based on Magnalight’s proven HML series of military spotlights that have seen use in Iraq and Afghanistan as a part of the Military’s Escalation of Force Kits. Operating on any voltage from 9 to 32VDC, this LED spotlight produces a 1600′ long by 120 feet wide beam and will withstand operation under highly demanding conditions.

The Magnalight HML-5M-LED Handheld LED Spotlight offers operators in military, law enforcement and professional utility and emergency services a powerful and efficient alternative to traditional halogen and HID equipped spotlights. Equipped with Magnalight’s waterproof PAR46 solid state LED bulb, this LED spotlight light produces more light while consuming less power. 
This means longer run times when operated from vehicle and equipment electrical systems without draining batteries. 

The rugged  weatherproof and UV resistant housing and LED lamp in this unit provides excellent durability and reliability while a 100 lbs grip magnetic base provides simple and secure mounting to metal surfaces. A polypropylene handle and heavy gauge steel handle bracket provides easy positioning of the light. This LED spotlight is also available in blue, green, amber and red colors as well as 850nm and 940 nm 12 watt infrared versions for use in covert operations in conjunction with night vision equipment. 

A variety of power connections are available including 16 and 25 foot straight cords with cigarette plug, 21 foot straight cord with battery clamps, 16 foot straight cord with battery ring terminals and 16 foot coil cord with cigarette plug. With a housing made in the USA and an LED lamp that is Made in the USA compliant, the HML-5M-LED Handheld LED Spotlight produces more light of a higher quality than comparable halogen spotlights, while providing unmatched durability and efficiency.

We have taken our classic Escalation of Force Kit gunner’s light with magnetic base and equipped it with a 40 watt LED light,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics’  “The result is a highly durable, proven handheld magnetic light that can work on voltages ranging from 9VDC to 42VDC and does not require bulb replacement for at least 50,000 hours.  With much lower amp draw, this light produces more range and coverage than our standard 24V 70 watt bulb or our 12V 100W bulb configuration.”
