Hardy spotlight

Written by  Staff Reporters

High quality, reliable lighting is essential for anyone involved in agriculture or the great outdoors.

NARVA’s hardy new ‘Colt 1000’ L.E.D Handheld Spotlights are available in corded or a rechargeable battery format, succeeding the popular ‘Colt 100’ handheld halogen spotlight.

The new Colt 1000 is said to be a more robust and reliable night-time light for demanding users, with the corded unit (part no.71001) offering a beam pattern range of up to 285 metres at 1 Lux and 4000 Lumens, while the rechargeable variant (part no. 71000) provides a beam pattern range of up to 244 metres at 1 Lux and 2500 Lumens. The light output for both models comes courtesy of its six high-powered, 3W L.E.Ds, which deliver 5700°K of crisp white light.

The new duo are compact, portable, easy to handle and comfortable, with an ergonomic handle design and a fold-away hook for storage. Heavy-duty casings make them fully sealed and waterproof to IP66 standards to ensure ongoing performance.

The rechargeable unit features a 7.4V lithium battery, offering up to 2.5 hours of constant usage time, while recharging from flat takes only 1.5 hours using the 240V charger included. For off-grid users, additional spare batteries (part no. 71007) are available, while the corded Colt is supplied with a 12/24V accessory plug is included for use across a wide array of vehicles.
