While checking The SEMA Show this week in Las Vegas, we definitely found a few cool products that stood out amongst the crowd. One of those products was the GEAR AID LED Lights. While typically geared towards outdoor enthusiasts, GEAR AID’s display really highlighted the versatility of the lights and the multitude of practical applications when it came to vehicle related use.
The GEAR AID LED Lights crank out a lot of lumens in a small, compact and portable form. Each light comes standard with a 1/4″-20 threaded point allowing to you to mount them to just about anything from tripods to Ram suction and magnet mounts. The possibilities are endless and we could quickly see the practically of having such a light in your kit. The GEAR AID LED Lights come in three variations: SPARK, ARC, and FLUX. Each one is highlighted in below with links to the product page
The SPARK LED Light will run from 5 to 25 hours on a single charge depending upon lumen strength.
SPARK LED Light – $49.95
The SPARK LED Light is GEAR AID’s “go anywhere’ light. It’s smaller than a wallet and weighs less than your cell phone. It features an ultra-bright white LED with three brightness settings (25 to 160 lumens) and a SOS feature. Runtime for the SPARK LED ranges from 5 to 25 hours depending upon the setting. What’s neat about the SPARK LED is that it’s small and portable enough that you can use it for a variety of tasks, but don’t have to carry around something clunky and cumbersome. More info »

When you need all the lumens, the FLUX LED Light and Power Station might be just the ticket. Loaded with 82 LEDs, the FLUX can deliver up to 640 lumens.

One of the things we really like about all of the GEAR AID LED Lights is the carry bag. Besides protecting your light when not in use, it double as a lantern. Simply cinch the drawstring around the light and you instantly have ambient lighting while at camp or in your tent. Little things like this really show that a lot of thought and energy went into designing the GEAR AID LED Lights.
All of the GEAR AID LED Lights are available on the GEAR AID website. There you’ll also find a whole assortment of mounting options for the 1/4″-20 threaded point found on all of the lights in the series. These lights look really promising. We’ll have to get a couple for the team and give them a hard field testing and report back. Stay tuned …
