GEAR AID® Redefines Hands-Free Lighting with New

Weatherproof ARC™ and FLUX™ Light & Power Stations

Bellingham, WA (July 27, 2016) GEAR AID®, an award-winning manufacturer long synonymous with outdoor adventure, today introduced two new hands-free light and portable power stations, the ARC and FLUX. Built with ultra-bright LEDs, high-speed charging capabilities and monster battery power, the ARC and FLUX provide light and power for days, will weather any storm and can even transform into a lantern.

The ARC and FLUX can be hung, angled and unlike other lights mounted to virtually any surface using a number of mounting systems. Both are compatible with tripods, GEAR AID mounts and and RAM® mounts with adapter to deliver light and power where and when needed. ARC and FLUX Light & Power Stations will charge phones, tablets, speakers, cameras and more.

Built for the outdoors, the ARC and FLUX are IP65-rated and will stand up to rain, sleet, snow and sand. Both feature three color “temperatures” and fully-adjustable brightness to provide the perfect lighting for any occasion. An SOS setting adds an essential safety feature while an aluminum kickstand delivers versatility and convenience. The ARC and FLUX include a storage bag / light diffuser and hang hook to help turn bright light into the soft glow of a hanging lantern.

The ARC is a workhorse featuring a 10,400 mAh lithium-ion battery with a run time of 8 – 96 hours depending on mode of operation. The ARC delivers up to 320 lumens via sixty LED bulbs and will charge a phone up to five times before needing a recharge. Weight: 16 oz. MSRP: $99.95

The FLUX is a powerhouse with twice the battery power and charging capacity of the ARC. It features a 20,800 mAh lithium-ion battery with a run time of 13 – 192 hours, will charge a phone up to ten times and delivers up to 640 lumens through 82 LED bulbs for hands-free lighting on any task. Weight: 24 oz. MSRP: $149.95.

“The ARC and FLUX are unique in the marketplace and we feel their utility and versatility can provide value to a wide range of consumers,” said Sean Fields, GEAR AID VP of Creative. “The ability to light up your vehicle, campsite or any task at hand, while charging your gadgets via a high-speed USB port, means you can have light and power anywhere and everywhere.”

Part of an exciting new series of LED lights and power stations, the ARC and FLUX will be available at retail 10/1/16. For more information, please visit: http://www.gearaid.com.
