Engraved flashlights by Starline were a big hit at the OPPA product show in Cleveland Ohio. The promotional product show on January 25 was exclusively for distributors of business gifts.
A powerful torch, and big seller, is this FL129 by Starline. It is super bright (250 lumens, and utilizes the COB (chip on board) technology. When you pull out the head, it shows the alternate flood light. A swivel neck, and magnetic base make this work light a winner.
Doug Oslance, the Regional Sales Manager is demonstrating it for me.
Maglite® has improved on its famous line of USA-made flashlights. The new ML25LT LED 2 and 3 C-cell flashlight was shown at the OPPA show in Cleveland Ohio last week. This show is for promotional product distributors only. So if you want to see a sample of this new torch, just ask your favorite promotional product distributor. The brightness is 177 lumens, 2 hours (2C cells) and 173 lumens, 18 hours (3C cells).
If you want a Maglite engraved with your company logo, that can be done, too. Your logo will look white against the color background of the barrel. The white color is caused by the reaction between the laser engraving and the base metal, aluminum.
Who uses Maglites? Your customers do. Why not put your logo where is counts, and will last forever? Big users are: real estate salesmen, inspectors, plumbers, electricians, construction estimators, carpenters, contractors, HVAC installers, exterminators, basement waterproofers, furnace repair men, chimney inspectors, and homeowners.
Brian Debottis (of Starline) showed me the best and brightest engraved flashlights at the OPPA show in Cleveland Ohio last week. I have one of these Triple Output LED CREE FL142 flashlights, and tried it out one night. It can light up the complete side of a building. It’s bright enough to be able to paint the side of your house at night! Currently, I keep it in my boat. When working in the engine compartment, you need a super bright light, and this flashlight fills the bill.
There are 2 secrets to its brightness. First, is the CREE bulb. CREE bulbs are extremely brighter that an ordinary LED bulb or an incandescent bulb. Second, there are 9 AA batteries inside. If they are all connected in series, that would give it 13.5 volts to work with. No wonder it is rated at 1050 Lumens.
The FL142 can be laser engraved with your corporate logo. This makes for a long-lasting, appreciated gift when you present it to your best customers.
