LED, CREE LED & COB Flashlights

Do you ever wonder…what’s with all the acronyms in the flashlight world? Let us dissect and explain this revolution in lighting!


LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. This technology has been around since the sixties! Through research and developments the once expensive lighting has become main stream. When compared to traditional incandescent bulbs, LED bulbs use 75% less energy and last 25% longer. LED bulbs emit light in a targeted direction – making them a perfect match for flashlight.


CREE LED         

Most people mistakenly think that CREE is a brand of flashlight. Actually CREE is the company that makes high output LED bulbs that are used in flashlights. This new technology gives us a bulb that is super bright, will burn for 100,000 hours and offers twice the lumens per Watt when compared to a Fluorescent bulb! These long lasting bulbs will secure a longer lifespan in our households having a positive impact on the environment. High five CREE LED!


COB stands for Chip on Board. This is the newest technology in LED lighting and means that multiple LED chips are packaged together in one lighting module. This is like a circuit board and has no casing, enabling a much denser array of light. You may be asking yourself what??? No worries, me too. What we really need to know is that they have been designed to use less energy, have a life span of 40,000 – 50,000 hours, can be super compact but extremely bright!

We have styles in all of these categories to brighten your customers way. When looking for the right flashlight, make sure to consider the bulb!

Light up your brand today with flashlights.
