Tektite® Strobe 3500 XL Expedition

Tektite® Strobe 3500 XL Expedition


TRENTON, N.J. - Tektite Industries, Inc., a worldwide leader in LED flashlights, strobes, and other portable lighting technologies, is proud to announce their first ever multifunction, high-intensity, all-improved LED strobes: the Tektite® Strobe 3500 XL Expedition, Tektite® Strobe 3500, Tektite® M3 Strobe, and the TEKNA® Lite 6 Strobe.

All of Tektite's new high-intensity LED strobes now feature dual-function modules. These modules have two modes: flashing and steady. Use flashing mode just like a normal strobe. Use the steady mode for area lighting, as a backup light, or as a marker light.

These strobes feature blistering, high-intensity LED strobe modules that are even brighter than Tektite's already market-leading Xenon strobes. The lamp life of each of these modules is 10,000+ hours so they will seldom, if ever, need replacement. Even the durability, already a hallmark of Tektite products, of these strobes has been improved since these LED strobes do not utilize the fragile glass strobe tubes used in Xenon strobes.

The Tektite® Strobe 3500 XL Expedition (Strobe_3500_XL_Expedition) is the brightest, most rugged, and shock resistant strobe we or anyone else makes. This multifunction, high-intensity LED strobe is visible for several miles (with a clear lens, conditions permitting) and flashes at initial flash rate of 120 flashes per minute (2 Hz) which is twice as many flashes per minute than our previous Xenon strobes. Along with our new multifunction LED module, this strobe features a battery housing that is computer machined from a solid bar of aircraft aluminum strong enough to be run over by a tank. Waterproof with double O-ring seals, the Strobe 3500 XL Expedition is dive rated to 2,500 feet (770 m) and will run for 100 hours in flashing mode (or 20 hours in steady mode) on a fresh set of three C-cell Alkaline batteries. The Strobe 3500 XL Expedition is also offered in an infrared (IR) version for government and military use (INFRARED_STROBE_3500_XL_EXPEDITION).

The Tektite® Strobe 3500 (STROBE_3500) is the polymer version of the Strobe 3500 XL Expedition and is crafted from the same durable ABS and LEXAN® as many of Tektite's other military-tough products. This multifunction, high-intensity LED strobe is visible for several miles (with a clear lens, conditions permitting) and flashes at initial flash rate of 120 flashes per minute (2 Hz) which is twice as many flashes per minute than our previous Xenon strobes. Waterproof with double O-ring seals, the Strobe 3500 is dive rated to 500 feet (150 m) and will run for 100 hours in flashing mode (or 20 hours in steady mode) on a fresh set of three C-cell alkaline batteries. The Strobe 3500 is also offered in an infrared (IR) version for government and military use (INFRARED_STROBE_3500).

The Tektite® M3 Strobe (M3_Strobe) takes the best aspects of our Mark III series and Strobe 3500 to create a thin, rugged, powerful LED strobe that produces comparable light output to large Xenon strobes but without the fragile glass tubes. The M3 Strobe features a high-intensity, multifunction LED strobe module that is far brighter than the Tektite® Mark III Strobe and about as bright as Tektite's market-leading Xenon strobes but in a slim, three AA-cell Alkaline size body. This strobe is crafted from the same durable ABS and LEXAN® as many of Tektite's other military-tough products and is visible for 1+ mile (with a clear lens, conditions permitting) above water. Waterproof with double O-ring seals, the M3 Strobe is dive rated to 1,000 feet (333 m) and will run for 100+ hours in flashing mode (or 20 hours in steady mode) on a fresh set of three AA-cell alkaline batteries.

The TEKNA® Lite 6 Strobe (TEKNA_Lite_6_Strobe) is a rugged, multifunction, high-intensity LED strobe that is light enough to float! The Lite 6 Strobe, weighing only 0.5 lbs. (0.31 kg), is crafted from the same durable ABS and LEXAN® as many of Tektite's military-tough products and sports our new multifunction, high-intensity LED strobe module. This strobe is visible for several miles (with a clear lens, conditions permitting) and flashes at initial flash rate of 120 flashes per minute (2 Hz) which is twice as many flashes per minute than our previous Xenon strobes. Waterproof with double O-ring seals, the Lite 6 Strobe is dive rated to 500 feet (150 m) and will run for 20+ hours in flashing mode (or 3 hours in steady mode) on a fresh set of two CR123A Lithium batteries.
