DALLAS Tx. - Larson Electronics' announced the addition of a red lens only handheld spotlight for hunting and spotting. While the red lens and reflector assembly is interchangeable with the clear lens and reflector assembly, the red lens series of handheld spotlights is dedicated to red light output. Often times, "snap on" style red lenses can enable white light to leak out. More importantly, stacking lens reduces the amount of light output delivered by the spotlight. By using a dedicated red lens and reflector combination, the HL-85-HID-R HID spotlight, HL-85-RL halogen spotlight, RL-85-RL rechargeable halogen spotlight deliver high output red light.

"By substituting the red lens and reflector head for the standard clear lens spotlight configuration, we are giving hunters exactly what they need, while saving them money," said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics' "We just added it the to the site on Monday and already we have seen a big jump in sales."

"The HL-85 and RL-85 series of spotlights have adjustable beams. By twisting the lens and reflector assembly in one direction, you can shorten and widen the beam into a standard flood configuration. By turning the lens assembly in the other direction, you can create a focused spot beam. When you introduce a color into a polycarbonate lens, you automatically reduce the light energy that passes through it."

"Traditionally, spotlight manufacturers offered a 'snap on' lens to adjust the color. By doing so, they dramatically reduce the light energy transmitted. With this in mind, we designed a red lens only configuration, which preserves the intensity of the flood beam and the distance of the spot beam while giving a pure red output. Plus, there is no white light leakage which is common with some snap on lenses."

Larson Electronics manufactures a wide range of spotlights, including the HL-85-HID spotlight, the HL-85 halogen spotlight and the HL-85-10W LED spotlight for military, work and hunting applications. With 40 years of experience, including the being the first company to manufacture a cigarette plug powered spotlight in the late 1960s, Larson Electronics continues to deliver quality oriented, innovative spotlights.

The HML-5M military spotlight is standard issue to deployed soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan as part of the Escalation of Force Kit. The HML-3 halogen spotlight with magnetic base continues to be a mainstay in cable service trucks throughout the United States. New and innovative products include the HL-85-10W1 LED spotlight which delivers the power of a 100 watt halogen spotlight, producing a 900 foot beam, but draws less than 1 amp on 12 volts and can run more than 5 years 24/7 without a bulb change.
