  • Patent number: 9927077
    Abstract: A combined flashlight and lantern can have a light powered by a metal-air fuel cell that runs, or is activated, by water or an electrolyte such as salt water. The combined flashlight and lantern has both flashlight and lantern configurations. In the flashlight configuration, a head with a distal concave reflector is disposed towards a handle with the light in an aperture of the distal concave reflector to direct light axially. The distal concave reflector is opaque to resist light from emitting laterally therefrom. In the lantern configuration, the head with a distal convex reflector is disposed away from the handle and opposing a proximal convex reflector to direct light radially.

  • Patent number: 8721109
    Abstract: A power saving lamp includes a base, a cover, a light source and a solar cell. The cover is fixed on the base. The light source is arranged on the base and inside the cover. The solar cell is arranged on the base or the cover and close to the light source. The solar cell can convert the solar power into electric power for further use to realize the use of driving the light source to emit light. The utilization efficiency of the light from the light source can be improved and the electric power can be saved. Besides, when the solar cell is closer to the light source, the photoelectric converting efficiency of the solar cell is higher and the recycle of the light can be realized. The utilization efficiency of the light from the light source can be further improved and the electric power can be saved.

  • Patent number: 8690377
    Abstract: A portable light or other device having a safety lock may comprise: a light body for receiving a source of electrical power; a light head including a light source for producing light and engaging the light body; and a lock mechanism engaging the light body or the light head and including a threaded member and a lock member. Rotating the threaded member moves the lock member radially relative to the light body and light head for engaging the lock for preventing removal of the light head from the light body unless the lock mechanism is released by a tool. A lock support may be disposed for supporting the lock member when the lock mechanism is engaged. The lock mechanism may be retained on the light body or the light head when the lock mechanism is engaged and when the lock mechanism is released.

  • Patent number: 8632223
    Abstract: A multi-functional illuminator comprising a directional illuminator and a removably attachable optic. The directional illuminator is typified by a flashlight projecting light forward to illuminate an object in front of the flashlight. The present invention discloses an optic removably attached to the directional illuminator intersecting and redistributing the light emitted by the directional illuminator to provide illumination satisfactory for tasks not achievable with the directional light beam. The optic employs reflection, refracting and/or diffusing optics to efficiently redirect the light. The optic can be designed so that the redirected light is distributed throughout the hemisphere, concentrated about a plane perpendicular to the axis of the directed light beam or to effect any one of a plurality of possible illumination patterns. If the directional illuminator comprises a covert design minimizing its lateral visibility, the optic can change this characteristic making it highly laterally visible.
