Always ready with Coleman flashlights

The nightly search for items in the mobile’s storage space or a hike at dusk are often the moments to determine that the battery of the flashlight is empty. If the lamp is switched off and still no “juice” is present, this is usually caused by creepage (i.e. leak current).

The new series “Divide + flashlights” from the canadian outdoor specialist Coleman promise remedy. They are equipped with the patented BatteryLock technology. It prevents the creeping discharge of the batteries by leakage current and thus preserves their natural life without having to remove them from the lamp.

The system is as awesome as simple. By simply rotating the contacts, these contacts are disconnected from the battery and the current flow is interrupted. In addition, the system prevents corrosion and inadvertently turns on the lamp. A nice side effect for the environment: Since the system gets the maximum from each fuel storage, less batteries are consumed and so you can reduce these costs in a significant manner.

Coleman offers five models with the new system. The top model of the series, the Divide + 700 LED, trusts with official performance data: With a brightness of 700 lumens, up to 55 hours of operation and a luminosity of 330 meters, it makes the night to the bright day.

If you like it lighter and more compact, you can access one of the four smaller models, which offer between 350 and 75 lumens. All models are made of robust aluminum and protected against splashing water according to the standard IPX 4. The Divide + 700 LED series with BatteryLoc is available at the well-stocked retailer.
