Just in time for the AAPEX show, Coast Products has rolled out the new A-Series – six next-generation Professional Use LED flashlights built into stainless steel cases. They are easy to carry, easy to use and easy to clean. But sophisticated design and stylish looks are only the beginning. The new Coast models hold more features than practically any other light available – incorporating a host of new technology released just this summer. Coast’s new patented technology has created lights that are not just brighter, they’re better.
Anyone who needs a powerful, rugged and dependable work light will appreciate the new A-Series lights. They all include Coast’s proprietary Max Beam optics, delivering maximum light output for any application, at any beam setting. Simply put, Coast lights have a clear, consistent and bright light at every point across the beam, with no dark spots or banding. It’s unparalleled in the category.
With six models, the A-Series offers a perfect solution for every project, a range of features for every person, at very affordable prices. The top-of-the-line A25 produces a stunning 196 lumens of light output with a runtime of close to three hours; but its Quick-Cycle Switch™ system lets the user change to 27 lumens to achieve a battery life of 26 hours. It includes the very latest patented or proprietary features from Coast for those who need or want the very best flashlight technology:
- Patent-pending Pure Beam Focusing optics produce pure, bright consistency on the tightest spot or widest flood.
- Proprietary Bulls-Eye Spot beam optics show a clear, bright center and a wide angle "halo" to reveal what’s around your primary target too.
- Fingertip Speed Focus Control to focus with a finger or thumb.
- Cyclone Heat Sink System decreases heat buildup, facilitating maximum light output and increasing LED lifespan.
The new A-Series lights take ruggedness to the next level, with a stainless steel case that’s nearly impossible to damage. Notably, they run on standard alkaline batteries – not expensive, hard-to-find lithium power – which saves a lot of money and keeps thousands of batteries out of landfills.
A9 – Big Features in a Small Package
Certain to be a hit with mechanics, the sleek Coast A9 is the flashlight to see at this year’s AAPEX show. Anyone who needs a powerful work flashlight – one that slips easily in a shirt pocket – will immediately see the A9’s value. It’s very lightweight, only 1.6 ounces, and pencil-thin, just 0.37 of an inch in diameter. So it is practically unnoticeable until it’s needed. Almost indestructible, it wipes clean in a second. The powerhouse A9 projects 23 lumens of pure white light in a flood circle that is perfect for thousands of uses, whether it’s under the hood or under a sink. It runs up to 14 hours on three AAAA batteries and projects a beam up to 20 meters, over 65-1/2'. It comes with a tough pocket clip, and the recessed rear switch makes it very easy to use.
Not Just Brighter – Better
Coast has raised the bar yet again with new product features that no other manufacturer comes close to matching. Even before perfecting the latest optics, which took two years to accomplish, professionals and consumers could see the difference with their naked eyes. That’s why 41% of everyday shoppers in a retail point-of-sale comparison picked Coast flashlights compared to the next three most popular brands, almost double the number who picked their nearest competitor (Riley Research Associates, 2010).
On the shop floor, having the right tools at hand is critical for automotive technicians to diagnose and complete repairs efficiently. Frequently, having just the right flashlight — or set of lights...
