Emergency light or a torch is very essential equipment that everyone must possess. Those days are gone when heavy and bulky torch were used, now it’s time for small and handy torch. This Palm Lite is the latest design emergency torch that is just 5 inches long and provides an intense light with a very long range. It is basically designed for firefighters, police, army etc, but due to its compatibility it can also be used for regular everyday use. It can easily be turned on by the trigger at the bottom. Five different switches are fitted to regulate the range and intensity of light as per the requirement. The Palm Lite is powered by solar-powered LED’s, this mean the palm lite is not just small and handy, but also environmentally friendly.
Text from Daniel :
The overall aesthetics were inspired by a hand grenade, with the trigger being like that of the pin for a grenade. When the holder pulls on the trigger at the bottom of the light, the light beam turns on. However, there is also a power button at the top in case the individual would like to hold on the light but not have the beam on. The light is extremely small, light an ergonomic, something that could fit on the belt of a police officer, marine or regular user, and is easy to pick up and shine the light very quickly while remaining comfortable and firm the individuals palm.
The buttons on the side are to change the color of the light, with the idea being that different groups of people would have different colors of light to reveal who they are, e.g. police have blue lights, firefighters have red etc…also yellow light creates a better visual field of depth, so that would be the color used for people using it for the army or special forces. The light can also reflect back at the holder, to make it easier to see the person holding the light. If for instance, in an emergency situation, you can see who is holding the light, whether it be a child, or fully grown adult.
