Different tasks require different lighting needs. Some cases demand light in all directions. As an area-spot and scene light, this light provides three types of lights in one due to its Sliding Diffuser Lens. Area light: fold out light panels and slide diffuser lens down for 120° flood light. Spotlight: fold out light panels and slide diffuser lens up for 12° focused light. Scene light: fold in light panels for 360° scene lighting. This rugged light is tough enough for any job. Its nylon body withstands impact and the heat of a fire scene. This fully submersible lighting tool can be used underwater (up to 10 ft). Its all-weather design can thrive in the summer desert heat, heavy rain, the cold of a snow storm… and everything in between. Some events are over in a few hours and require as much as lighting as possible (vehicle extrication, EMS, etc.). The Nomad provides 3 continuous hours of light on its high mode. Other events are far more involved. The low mode provides 24 hours of continuous light for extended work period (power failure, large event in rural area, etc.) Many portable area lights only extend to 6ft (1.8 m) tall, which is near the eye level and potentially blinding. The Transformer extends up to 12ft (3.7 m) tall to deliver overhead lighting that does not blind the user. The Transformer stows as a 3 separate pieces weighing a total of 64.5 lbs (29.2 kg). A carry strap is included for easy transport. The light is designed so that an individual can deploy it in 60 seconds. At a scene, you’ll want to keep track of how much light you have left. Every Nomad is equipped with a battery life indicator, which changes color from green to orange to red as the battery drains.
