One of the light sources is mounted within the housing to provide a flashlight that is mounted to the housing at an angle between 0 and 180 degrees and the other light source is directed into the elongated body to illuminate the elongated body so that light is visible therefrom. The light source for the flashlight is switchable between a constant on and a constant off state and the light source illuminating the body is switchable among a constant on state, a constant off state and an intermittent state. The flashlight light source and the body light source are operable independently of one another.

  • Patent number: 8337049
    Abstract: A bulb-type lighting source employs a light-emitting element in a structure that facilitates heat dispersal. The lighting source includes a first heat sink member mounted in a bowl shaped case supporting a power supply circuit. A mounting substrate is positioned in surface contact with a surface of the heat sink member and is capable of supporting a light-emitting unit. A globe covers the light-emitting unit to permit light emission. A second heat sink member has a surface in contact with a perimeter of the mounting substrate and offset from the light-emitting unit to provide a second part in surface contact with the first heat member to facilitate the release of heat.

  • Publication number: 20120320575
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method and apparatus for providing a light emitting diode and driving circuitry integrated into a component module that will retrofit common incandescent lightbulb applications. The disclosed embodiments will perform with high efficiency at a wide operating voltage range with a very small size allowing for the incorporation within the envelope and form of existing lightbulb bases. Therefore, a single universal LED light bulb module can be used to replace the dozens of conventional LED and incandescent lights currently being used. The electronic circuitries used to drive the LEDs are extremely compact and consequently can be incorporated in nearly any standard bulb base.
