New Light Tape® Portable Rechargeable Battery Packs

Light Tape UK announces the launch of the new portable, quick recharge, compact, battery units to drive the Light Tape® product in its various portable applications. The new units have been specifically developed to address the existing limitations associated with driving Light Tape using portable battery technology.

Light Tape® Portable Rechargeable Battery Packs

 

Light Tape® has been used for many applications in the event, exhibition, entertainment and safety industries but the main barrier to its more widespread use in these sectors has been the size and poor performance of current battery technology.

Where the addition of light for wearable/non wearable applications is require for example: Safety Jackets etc in industry; Stage, TV and Movie Costumes and props in entertainment; Event Displays, Mobile Bars, Ice Buckets, Poser Tables, Table centers etc; Free Standing, Portable exhibition stands and Brochure Stands for exhibition, product display and POS Units (the list of application could go on)

At present, a DC power unit has to be supplied separately to the battery, switch and charger which can make the solution bulky and difficult to conceal if for instance the Light Tape® is required to be lit for an extended time, so requiring a larger power unit. Or, time consuming if a smaller battery was used that needed to be recharged every few hours, depending on the overall size and power needs of the Light Tape® being driven.  However the new Portable battery packs confirm that “good things” really do “come in small packages”.

 

Light Tape® PDC60 Battery Pack and Charger

The new portable, quick rechargeable battery unit has both the power driver and battery encased in the one unit. It has a vastly extended battery life, is rechargeable and comes in three sizes. The new portable battery unit features an on/off/flashing switch plus red light indicator, a belt clip, it has a vastly extended battery life and is rechargeable. The smallest (PDC24) battery unit can drive up to 24 Square inches of Light Tape®. The PDC60 battery unit can drive up to 60” Square inches of Light Tape® and the PDC120 battery can drive up to 120 Square inches of Light Tape®. All of this adds up to an extremely viable solution that ticks all the boxes and opens up a whole new world of possibilities for the use of affordable, practical, portable Light Tape® displays.

Light Tape®

Light Tape® uses less than one twentieth of the power and is half the price of Neon and Cold Cathode display lighting, it is flexible, easier to install and maintain, reduces light pollution, produces no waste heat or infrared light and is fully recyclable, uses No Gas, No Glass and No Mercury.

Light Tape® is the longest and brightest electroluminescent lamp in the world. It can be supplied in a range of colours and widths, in lengths up to 100m. Driven by specially devised power supplies, it can be used in flashing or steady state modes in indoor or outdoor applications. The design is safe with no mercury, no glass to break or gas to escape and it’s highly energy efficient too. In application, it is easy to install, requiring virtually no maintenance compared to alternative lighting technologies.

Light Tape® is being used in both the Korean and Brazilian Subway systems as Emergency Egress Escape lighting it is also being used around the world in Safety Garments and is presently on test illuminating level crossing barriers.

“Light Tape® was found to be more visible in smoke than LEDS after a smoke test performed by the San Paolo Fire Department. The Fire Commission found Light Tape® to be clearly visible and provided enough illumination to navigate in emergencies”. Brazilian Subway, San Paolo

A NASA study for the Air Force on Electroluminescent Lighting  showed the technology was easily visible from distances over five miles away. Notably Light Tape®  light penetrates fog, smoke, snow, haze and other normally poor visibility conditions.

What is Light Tape®?

Light Tape® is made up of metal ribbon coated in Sylvania phosphor and encapsulated in a Honeywell laminate. Light Tape® has no glass, no gas, and no mercury/heavy metals and so is user and environment friendly. Light Tape® provides an 85% – 90% energy saving against other commercially available light sources such as Neon and Cold Cathode and due to its thinness (just 0.5mm thick, as thin as a business card) and being lightweight, affords inherent flexibility of use providing a neater, modern, space saving alterative that is easy to install with little to no maintenance and has a long working life.

About mikeltukl
About Light Tape Light Tape UK Ltd have launched a revolutionary, cost-effective slim and flexible electroluminescent lighting strip system that operates from low amperage supplies to provide numerous applications for use in industrial and commercial areas. Uses range from directional strip lighting in fire and safety applications to automotive, architectural and entertainment applications, as well as advertising displays and graphic display light boxes. It can even replace neon signage, notably for graphic display light boxes, where Light Tape enables greatly reduced box thickness to just 12mm, a huge reduction on other commercially available florescent light signage systems, which are 40mm thick. Light tape itself is just 0.5mm thick (as thin as a business card) and lightweight affording inherent flexibility of use and with this and the thinner Light Tape light boxes, the weight of the system is considerably reduced making it easier and safer to handle. Light tape provides an 85% - 90% energy saving against other commercially available florescent light boxes and Light Tape is also the longest and brightest electroluminescent lamp in the world. It can be supplied in a range of colours and widths, with lengths of up to 300ft or more. By varying supply voltage and frequency, the brightness and hue of Light Tape can also be adjusted. Driven by specially devised power supplies, it can be used in flashing or steady state modes in indoor or outdoor applications. The design of this state of the art product is both safe, there is no mercury incorporated in it, no glass to break or gas to escape, and is highly energy efficient too. A 25mm wide by 300ft long Light Tape, consumes less power than a 100W light bulb whilst also being at least twice the brightness of alternative EL technologies. In outdoor illuminated signage applications Light Tape can be seen for miles. A NASA study for the Air Force on Light Tape showed the technology easily visible from distances over five miles away. Notably Light Tape penetrates fog, snow, haze and other normally poor visibility conditions. Light Tape is easy to install, and requires virtually no maintenance compared to alternative lighting technologies and the flat, flexible, plastic lamp generates no heat and can be wrapped around corners." bend radius is just 2mm. And unlike fiber optics, Light Tape loves to be flashed sequentially or selectively which not only enhances applications but also significantly extends life. Multi-channel sequences and flashers are also available for use with Light Tape. Light Tape is the most versatile light bulb ever developed! Patent protected Light Tape is the thinnest, longest and brightest electroluminescent lamp in the World. Light Tape is extremely light, flexible and very easy to install. We offer multiple colors, a variety of widths and lengths of 100m or longer.
