WICHITA, Ks. - Coleman's new Exponent® line of battery-powered lights merges convenience with rugged quality. These bright LED lights featuring LUXEON® LEDs are lightweight, durably constructed, and were created to meet the demands of today's adventure lifestyles. Beyond their rugged functionality, they are easy to use, easy to pack, easy to carry, and relatively easy on the pocketbook.

The allure of hands-free operation makes headlamps a popular choice among adventurers. The Exponent line offers two model choices - a 3AAA .5-Watt Headlamp and a 4AA 1-Watt Headlamp. The 3AAA model has five .5-watt LEDs - three bright white and two red. The 4AA model also has five LEDs - one ultra bright white 1-watt LUXEON® LED in the center, two bright white .5-watt bulbs, and two red .5-watt bulbs. Both models can be switched to a wide-beam path of light with the red LEDs providing enhanced night vision. An emergency strobe mode is provided on both models. The headlamps each have three-strap headbands for a snug fit that is comfortable yet secure.

For a more traditional source of light, the three stylish new Exponent flashlights are carved out of weather-resistant anodized aluminum for rugged duty, but they have contemporary lines, convenience features and lightweight performance. The 2AA 1-Watt and the 3AAA 1-Watt models feature ultra bright white LUXEON LEDs and have six hours of usable light, while the 2AA .5-Watt model features a bright white LED and will run for up to 16 hours. All three of the flashlights offer three different types of lighting with a simple twist of the collar - white for general purpose, red for improved night vision and green for map reading.

"A quick turn of the dial changes colors from red to green to white light, depending on your needs," said Darin Webb, Coleman product manager for lighting. "There's no hassle to change colors and no awkward lenses to loosen."
