NightStar is the most reliable magnetic force emergency light source ever developed
Have you ever reached for a flashlight or emergency light and found dead batteries, a broken bulb, or a corroded mess. Tired of replacing batteries and throwing the old ones in a trash dump. Never again!
With only one moving part, the NightStar transforms motion into light. Over and over again. NightStar's elegant and simple design uses no batteries or incandescent light bulbs and needs no other replacement parts. When fully charged, with only 30 seconds of gentle shaking, NightStar produces a beam of light that lasts for several minutes. In total darkness NightStar illuminates a six-foot diameter area at 35 feet. Contained within NightStar, a high field strength magnet repeatedly passes through a wire coil, generating, electrical energy. Magnets mounted at both ends of the unit magnetically repel the charging magnet, allowing it to oscillate smoothly and quietly through the coil. A capacitor stores the energy and powers the high brightness white-light LED.
NightStar uses a sealed magnetic switch, which is durable and intrinsically safe. Because of this, NightStar can probably be used in environments where combustible materials are present. Formal industry testing is underway and we will announce the results soon.
All of NightStar's state-of-the-art components are contained within a nearly unbreakable, waterproof and chemically resistant housing. NightStar is designed for reliability, versatility, and durability. We guarantee that NightStar will work when needed -- in any environment on the planet!
NightStar is a renewable energy emergency light source that does not require batteries or bulbs, and recharges when gently shaken. When fully charged, with only 30 seconds of shaking, NightStar produces a beam of light that lasts for several minutes, which in total darkness illuminates a six-foot diameter area at 35 feet. Contained within NightStar, a high-strength magnet repeatedly passes through a wire coil, generating electrical energy. A capacitor stores the energy and powers an ultra-bright white-light LED. Superior to a battery, the capacitor will never corrode, can recharge several hundred thousand times and will power the LED even under extreme hot or cold temperatures.
Equally impressive, the LED used in NightStar is practically unbreakable, has a rated lifetime over 100,000 hours, and will produce 12-foot candles of light at peak brightness. The full spectrum light from the LED is projected into a beam by a precision acrylic lens. In addition, magnets mounted at both ends of the unit magnetically repel the charging magnet through the coil without loss in mechanical energy. Consequently, NightStar's mag-lev recoil system efficiently transforms motion into light with no degradation to the system.
NightStar also has a unique switch design. As the switch is moved forward a magnet activates a reed switch mounted inside the unit. This simple switch design is reliable, watertight and intrinsically safe.
All of NightStar's state-of-the-art components are contained within a nearly indestructible, polycarbonate, waterproof housing, ensuring operation under severe and rugged conditions. The ALL CLEAR bodies are even tougher with a materials combination of polycarbonate and ABS. NightStar is designed for reliability, versatility, and durability.
