Nighthawk UltraLight Lands On The Shelf At Walmart
Nighthawk Lights, LLC lands on the shelf at Walmart-Canada. Mr. Lucas, recounted Nighthawk’s journey to the shelf at Walmart Canada. He recently said, “Early last year Walmart USA held an American Idol style contest where they challenged inventors, tinkerers, thinkers, marketers and everyday Joes to submit their products for sale on Walmart’s shelves. We submitted our video of the Nighthawk UltraLight, which was originally made for and used by US pilots during Operation Desert Storm. Approximately three weeks into the contest we received a call from Walmart Canada asking about the UltraLight and if we could discuss ‘getting on the shelf’ in their Canadian stores. Although we did not win the Walmart USA contest, I am very pleased to announce that we have partnered with Walmart Canada and the UltraLight by Nighthawk has now landed on the shelf at Walmart’s in Canada.”
Mr. Lucas went on to describe the history of Ultralight, “The first generation of this light was the Nighthawk Microlight. It was used by pilots flying night sorties during the Desert Storm Operation. We were asked to develop a light that would not interfere with the safe operation of the aircraft, be night-vision compatible, easy to operate, have an extended battery and bulb life and lastly, to be virtually indestructible; the Nighthawk Microlight was born.” Mr. Lucas then concluded with, ”Fast forward 15 years of technology advancement and now the new and improved UltraLight has replaced the Microlight. It is still a hands-free flashlight that is worn on your finger using a loop and hook strap or you can wear it on the brim of a hat using the removable clip. The Ultralight is a high intensity white LED flashlight that boasts 48+ hours of continuous battery time, the LED is rated at 50,000+ hours; it is weather proof, cool to the touch and carries a life-time guarantee against failure of parts or workmanship. It is perfect for Hunters, Campers, Fishermen, Boaters, Truckers, Mechanics, Backpackers, Pilots or anyone who needs a convenient, small and versatile high-intensity flashlight. We are proud and excited to bring this next generation flashlight to the Canadian people.”
We developed and manufacture the Worlds Best Personal Illumination Devices. After almost 15 years we have redesigned and reintroduced The Nighthawk Microlight. The Nighthawk MicroLight was originally used by pilots flying night sorties during the Desert Storm Operation. The pilots wore night vision devices during these missions but the devices would turn-off instantly if too much light entered the device, leaving the pilot flying virtually blind, so using conventional flashlights were not an option in the cockpit. We were asked to develop a light that would not interfere with the safe operation of the aircraft, be night-vision compatible, easy to operate, have an extended battery and bulb life and lastly, to be virtually indestructible. It was a lot to ask of a single device but my team went to work on the requirements and we were ecstatic when we completed our mission. We created what we then proudly called the NightHawk MicroLight.
We not only met the requirements of the device design and functionality, we exceed them! The results of our efforts produced a Flashlight created from high-impact resin, outfitted with an Infrared (IR) LED and that used a loop and hook strap that easily adjusted onto the pilots finger (giving the pilots total hands-free light). The unit was small and lightweight; it had a battery burn time of 10 continuous hours with a bulb burn time of over 14,000 hours. We had successfully created the first totally hands-free Personal Illumination Device (PID).
Fast forward 17 years and we have since gone back to the development board and have re-created the Nighthawk MicroLight. But, this time our mission was not military driven but consumer driven. The technology and materials that had been used years before have advanced to such a great degree that next generation NightHawk Light has been born. This time we have proudly named it the NightHawk UltraLight™. It is made from high impact polymers, the battery life is now extended to over 15 hours of continuous use and the Ultra bright white LED bulb is 300 times brighter and lasts over 50,000 hours. Even the loop and hook strap has been made from newer and superior material. One other major component of the original Microlight remains the same in the newly designed UltraLight. In addition to easily being worn on your finger you can also wear it on your hat or a piece of clothing using its detachable clip. This new device is not only stronger and better but we back-it-up with a life time guarantee against parts and workmanship. The NightHawk UltraLight™ is the perfect hands-free light for thousands of daily low light and dark environments including Camping, Fishing, Boating, Hiking, Hunting, Truckers, Auto repair, Computer repair and of course Flying.
We appreciate being recently selected to compete in the Wal-Mart get on the shelf contest and we are in the midst of re establishing our distribution network and direct dealer sales.
