Responder Right Angle Light
by Bright Star
The staff at Hooks and Hooligans has been evaluating the â€œResponder Right Angleâ€ light from Koehler Bright Star, and are happy to endorse this product. Over the past six month five members have used their light in various settings to include; live fire evolution’s, simulated smoke, and on the job emergency incidents.
The evaluated light is the Responder RA (alkaline model #510304) with LED light head. With fresh batteries this light has a 17 hours of runtime, an incredible output of 220 Lumens/60,000 Candelas, and a beam distance of 490 meters.
In our collaborative evaluation, we at Hooks and Hooligans feel that the light has set itself apart from all other right angled lights. There were many positives that we foundÂ with this light,Â and have listed several we found to stand out among other lights on the market:
-The Responder light has a large rubber on/off switch on the top right side of the housing which allows you to quickly locate and activate the light with gloved hands, and in low light environments.
-A solid durable clip is located on the rear of the light for easy attachment to jackets, belts, and equipment.
-It is very light weight (under one pound).
It also has a swivel ring on the clip so that a lanyard can be affixed to the light.
-Compared to other similar lights we estimate the light beam to reach approximately 10-15% further at head, chest, and foot level.
While using this light we did receive one note, that we feel is defiantly worthy of mentioning. While doing a fire inspection, the user stated:
“That while trying to look into a small zero visibility space, the light was almost too bright, and the light beam had to be directed away from the object I was trying to look at.” Â -Chief Dave Cline
They were able to use the ambient light generated to see the object and read some small lettering.
Overall we are very pleased with this lights performance, and are happy to endorse this product for fire and rescue operations. It is also very reasonably priced, and available at: www.TheFireStore.com for only $59.99. If you are interested in purchasing this light, you can CLICK HERE for a direct link to The Fire Store.
