Portable lighting devices

A flashlight or portable light source has a battery power source, a light source, a circuit powered by the battery power source which causes the light source to emit light in an on state, a switch which causes the circuit to alternate between the on state and an off state in which the light source does not emit light when the switch is actuated by a user, a controller for causing light emitted from the light source to emit at two or more modes other than the off state, and an automatic dimmer residing within the flashlight which causes light emitted from the light source to dime without any activation of the switch after a first preselected amount of time.. . ... Mag Instrument Inc

Rechargeable lighting devices

A charging process of a rechargeable lighting device is controlled by a software algorithm and a microcontroller configured within the rechargeable lighting device which has first and the second charging contacts located on its exterior and the charging circuit is turned on when a cradle detection circuit detects that at least one of the charging contacts engages an electrical contact when the rechargeable lighting device is inserted into a charging cradle. The charging process begins with a charge-current which is constant and a battery charge-voltage which rises up to a nominal battery charge-voltage. ... Mag Instrument Inc

Portable lighting device with reconfigurable user interface

A portable lighting device that provides different user interfaces that may be selected by the user. Each user interface may provide one or more operational modes, such as on mode, power save mode, strobe mode or momentary mode. ... Mag Instrument Inc

Multi-mode portable lighting device

A lighting device with a light source powered by batteries connected in series utilizes a current-limited load switch which regulates current delivered to the light source from the batteries through use of a controller electrically coupled in series with a mechanical power switch so that when the mechanical power switch is opened, the controller is not powered by the batteries, the controller including an output for providing a control signal for controlling the opening and closing of the current-limited load switch, and current delivered to the light source by the current-limited load switch is set by a resistor connected to an iset pin of the current-limited load switch.. . ... Mag Instrument Inc

Portable lighting devices

A method for increasing battery life in a lighting device powered by a battery source in which an electronic switch is caused to provide a declining power supply to a light emitting diode (“led”) as a power profile of the battery source declines.. . ... Mag Instrument Inc

Cradle for rechargeable lighting devices

A charger cradle for recharging a rechargeable lighting device is described. The cradle may include two prongs that flex outwards to allow a lighting device to be inserted into the cradle. ... Mag Instrument Inc

Multi-mode portable illumination device

A multi-mode portable illumination device includes a switch structure featuring a substantially planar member and a mechanical switch which requires a relatively small amount of force and a short stroke distance to actuate. The mechanical switch is attached to a member which contains circuit(s) adding additional functionality to the multi-mode portable illumination device. ... Mag Instrument Inc

Portable lighting device

A method for controlling a portable lighting device. The device has a switched-mode power supply, a light source, a high frequency switch, a controller controlling the operation of the light source and a user interface for inputting commands to the controller. ... Mag Instrument Inc

Led flashlight with improved heat sink

One electrical lead from an led package is soldered to an inner electrically conductive member positioned and electrically isolated from an outer electrically conductive member by electrically insulating material while a second electrical lead and a neutral lead from the led are soldered to the outer electrically conductive member so that heat is transferred from an led die within the led package to the outer electrically conductive member and then to a thermally conductive outer casing with a thermal path that minimizes thermal resistance.. . ... Mag Instrument Inc

Rechargeable lighting devices

A rechargeable lighting device has a rechargeable power source with a positive electrode located at its rear end, a main power circuit that powers a light source and includes the positive electrode, a charging circuit configured to be enabled when the lighting device engages a charging device, and at least one charging contact located on the exterior of the lighting device at or near its tail end. A microcontroller and switch are located at the rear end and the microcontroller wakes up to either turn on the main power circuit and isolate the charging contract from a charging ground path or turn on the charging circuit in which case the charging contact acts as part of the charging ground path.. ... Mag Instrument Inc

Lighting devices

A flashlight has housing with a first mechanical spiral engagement system, a head assembly with a second mechanical spiral engagement system that engages the first mechanical spiral engagement system when the head assembly is coupled to the housing, an led light source module fixedly held by a heat sink fixedly held by the housing, a power source held within the housing, and a switch assembly, wherein light provided by the led light source module may be varied by rotating the head assembly relative to the housing while the heat sink, the switch assembly and the power source remain stationary.. . ... Mag Instrument Inc

Process for user interaction with a flashlight via a smart cradle

A user electronically interacts with a flashlight via a computer and application software once the flashlight has been inserted into, and engages, a smart cradle configured with a printed circuit board (“pcb”) that can communicate electronically with both the flashlight and the computer. Application software allows the user to access a mode control circuit for changing operational modes available on the flashlight without having to manipulate a manual control of the flashlight, monitor battery life, access data files relating to the flashlight, and load information into memory of the pcb.. ... Mag Instrument Inc

Led module

A light emitting diode (“led”) module with improved thermal characteristics is provided. The module includes an led, a first circuit board, a second circuit board, a lower insulator, an upper insulator, a lower contact, upper contacts, and a heat sink. ... Mag Instrument Inc

Charger cradle for rechargeable lighting device

A process for recharging a rechargeable flashlight in a motor vehicle places a recharging cradle into a cup holder, connects the recharging cradle to a cigarette lighter port in the motor vehicle and inserts a bottom end of the rechargeable flashlight into an opening in the cradle configured to snugly receive and support the rechargeable flashlight in an upright position within the recharging cradle so that a pair of contact leads of the recharging cradle make electrical contact with a pair of electrical contacts of the rechargeable flashlight configured for recharging the rechargeable flashlight.. . ...

Method and apparatus for reducing battery corrosive electrolyte leakage

Battery corrosive electrolyte leak is reduced by using spacers (which can be made of a shock absorbing material) between each pair of three or more batteries held in a series configuration so that a resilient contact provides an electrical contact between the pair of batteries and the thickness of the spacer prevents a second end of a first battery from contacting the first end of the second battery.. . ... Mag Instrument Inc

03/23/17 / #20170086275

Portable lighting devices

A flashlight uses a reverse battery protection circuit to prevent current from flowing in a power control circuit when at least one battery is held in a reversed orientation, rather than a correct orientation, in a battery compartment of the flashlight.. . ... Mag Instrument Inc

02/23/17 / #20170051903

Portable lighting devices

A multi-mode flashlight includes a housing with a source of power, a light source located at a forward end of the housing, and a tail cap located at the tail end of the housing, the tail cap including a switch and at least two icons, each of which is associated with a mode of operation of the flashlight, wherein the mode of operation is selected by orienting the housing so that the icon associated with the desired mode of operation is positioned in a predetermined manner and the switch is depressed to turn the flashlight on and the switch is depressed for at least a predetermined amount of time.. . ...
