"Ledlenser Area Lights were created for construction workers, civil engineers, electricians, mechanics, the family handyman, and everyone else who is reliant on a perfectly lighted workplace,” said Jeff Hutchens, chief operating officer of Ledlenser USA. “With our unparalleled lighting technology plus our thoughtful, compact, and robust designs, Ledlenser Area Lights are essential for a variety of spaces and situations where superior illumination is essential to getting the job done well and safely."


After extensive feedback from workers, it became clear that our new area lights must meet the following essential criteria: 

  • Optimal illumination: Workers require perfect illumination that includes brightness control, adjustable white light, directed illumination, and glare reduction for comfortable and effective lighting conditions. 
  • Versatile performance: Maximum flexibility is crucial, as different work sites may offer varying power options. Hence, the inclusion of hybrid power capability was deemed essential. Additionally, various mounting options are necessary to accommodate diverse work environments. The light must also be resilient and capable of withstanding wet and dusty conditions. 
  • Exceeding expectations: As a brand committed to excellence, Ledlenser aims to surpass expectations. Thus, we've integrated Bluetooth compatibility with remote control functionality into a compact, reliable, and user-friendly product. This ensures convenience and efficiency for workers in various settings.
