As my regular readers will testify, I don’t often use this blog to “sell” products. I prefer to use it to inform on issues that relate to safety both in the workplace as well as at home.
I do, however, feel that I might have been remiss in not showing you new and cool products so I’m going to start highlighting products (whether we sell them or not) that I feel are cool and that I believe you might be interested in knowing about as well.
The new Ergodyne Glowear Powercap is a great place to start. What makes it so cool are the four tiny LED lights that are built into the bill of the cap.
You can barely see one set at the very tip of the cap on the photo above. Here’s a view from the underside:
The two sets of LED lights function independently to give you three different light settings:
1. There’s the low beams (Set #1) that are inset into the billl of the hat and that shine down for close-up work (Or for reading in bed when your partner is trying to sleep or when the power goes out!)
2. The high beams (Set #2) which are built into the rim of the bill and set to shine out further for long distances.
3. Both on at once (Set #1 & 2) for maximum illumination both up close and long distance.
Because LED lights require so little power all that is needed to power them are the small button batteries which means that adding light to the cap adds almost nothing in weight. Here’s a photo showing the small battery compartment hidden inside the brim of the cap.
