UCO Brings Sophisticated Charger + Lantern + Flashlight to the Outdoors


Seattle, WA – The innovative design team at UCO introduces the sleek Tetra USB Charger + Lantern + Flashlight™, a three-in-one product that is ideal for emergency preparedness kits, extended backcountry adventure, the home or car. UCO’s new rechargeable and collapsible Tetra USB Charger + Lantern + Flashlight™ shifts easily between flashlight and lantern functions and features a USB-charger port perfect for charging a camera, mobile phone, or GPS.

The Tetra has a durable, water-resistant housing that helps ensure illumination and a reliable source of power in foul weather. The Tetra is 4.3-ounces, and just 4.5 inches long when closed and offers a long-lasting battery life: the Tetra will run up to 120 hours, and has adjustable brightness up to 170 lumens.

“We focus on creating multipurpose, efficient tools that can be used in the home or the outdoors,” says Graeme Esarey, Industrial Revolution’s President. “The Tetra is a dependable lantern, a bright flashlight, and the option to use it as a charger – when needed – makes it an ideal emergency choice for the home, car, or RV.”

Powered by a rechargeable 3.7V 2.6AH li-ion battery, the frosted globe of the Tetra slides up for a diffused white light in lantern mode and collapses down for flashlight mode with a super bright R4 XP-G2 CREE LED beam projection of 140 meters. Additional features include a glow in the dark power button, which doubles as an LED indicator light to display battery level and charging status, and a D-ring for hanging. The product will be available in stores this September with a POP display that is integrated into the shipping carton. The Tetra’s MSRP is $49.99.

The Tetra USB Charger + Lantern + Flashlight™ debuts at Summer Outdoor Retailer at the Industrial Revolution booth, #40.
