Product Spotlight: Streamlight 3C ProPolymer Lux Div 2

tactical led flashlightAt Energy Saving Lighting, we love high-powered LED flashlights. Their performance and battery life is just unbeatable! One of our favorite LED flashlights is the Streamlight 3C ProPolymer Lux Div 2 because it has one of the longest-reaching and brightest beams found in a flashlight.

Powered by 3 “C” alkaline batteries, this tactical LED flashlight is able to provide a beam of up to 3,500 Candela at peak beam intensity. Even with that bright beam, however, the Streamlight 3C ProPolymer Lux Div 2 is able to run for up to 5.5 hours at full intensity, with another two hours of declining usable light, so you’ll have the light you need when you need it.

Another great feature of this is that it’s a waterproof flashlight. Its lightweight case is sealed with an o-ring to keep your flashlight dry when you need it. Its body has been constructed of a lightweight Polymer Engineering resin that’s virtually indestructible. The resin also makes this flashlight shock-resistant and non-conductive.

Operating this Streamlight flashlight is a dream, too. It offers a push-button switch on its tail end to make for convenient on and off functions. At 9.3” long and 15 oz., the flashlight offers the right size for many tactical operations. Additionally, with its wrist lanyard connection and spring-loaded clip, you have multiple ways to hang onto your flashlight.

Transforming Your Home with Decorative LED Lights

If you’re like most people, you probably wish your house was a little prettier. Maybe you want your walls to be a little less brown, the artwork to be a little fancier, the carpets a little more up to date. Chances are, though, that those changes cost more than you want.

Looking for a less expensive way to transform the look and feel of your home? Try decorative lighting to give your home a whole new look.

Why Decorative Lighting Works

Most people see lighting as an almost purely functional part of their home — making it to where you can see in a room. Decorative lighting has a different purpose, though. Whether you use candelabra bulbs, globe bulbs or other accent lighting, the lighting is intended to accent your d├ęcor rather than provide additional illumination.

Use LED for Best Results

LED accent lighting is great for a number of reasons. Although LED bulbs offer the same warm light that incandescent bulbs do, these bulbs offer one big plus: energy savings. Incandescent bulbs lose as much as 90 percent of their energy to heat, while LED bulbs are able to channel that energy into light, meaning they consume a lot less power.

Decoration That Counts

Whether you decide to plaster a string of lights across your living room walls or add a stunning chandelier to your house, adding some decorative lighting to your home can make a huge difference. With a warm feel and a new glow, your home can feel like it has undergone a major transformation, regardless of how simple your change was.

Making the Switch

If you’re ready to change the look and feel of your home, you can use decorative LED lighting to transform your home for much less than even the mildest renovation will cost. With longer lives and better efficiency than incandescent and fluorescent bulbs, LED lights save money where it counts. Their design flexibility makes them perfectly suited to any number of applications, meaning you don't have to feel restricted when planning your ornamental touches. LED lights cost a little more out of the box, but the benefits they bring make them the right choice for decorative lighting.
