BATLite® vs Concrete Blocks
September 28, 2017
How badass is BATLite®? See for yourself when BATLite® takes on a series of concrete blocks — and continues to shine while it leaves them all in the dust. And there’s a series of unedited videos for those skeptics who want to see every second of punishment that BATLite® had to endure!

Greening the Armed Forces
October 5, 2010
The American military, facing increasing insurgent attacks on fuel supply convoys in Pakistan and Afghanistan, is pushing aggressively to develop, test and deploy renewable technologies to decrease its dependence on fossil fuels.
LED lights use solid-state technology that dramatically reduces electricity requirement compared with conventional or fluorescent bulbs; using them saves fuel by promoting energy efficiency. The Marines have purchased LED lights from TechShot, an Indiana-based company, that has designed LED shelter lights for inside tents that are lightweight and work well in a wide range of temperatures and will last for 100,000 hours — essentially doing away with the necessity to change bulbs. The system will be used in Afghanistan this month.
