Let there be light

With dark evenings not too far away, the new Probe 2 lamp from Narva might just be the thing to keep in the ute, farm UTV or tractor.

This slimline cordless LED lamp has high light output, will run for up to five hours from one charge, and can be charged via the mains adapter from 12v vehicle sockets or even via a micro USB cable.

A large moulded rubber grip makes the lamp easy to handle, and the construction includes a shatterproof polycarbonate lens and a casing fully sealed that meets the IP66 rating.

The latest SMD LED technology used in the lamp produces a smooth, broad light output with high intensity and brightness. End-mounted LEDs light up tight spaces as does a conventional torch.

The lithium-ion battery has a long shelf-life with no memory effect, enabling recharging at any stage during the discharge cycle; red and blue LED indicators show the level of charge. Buy from automotive outlets.
