Striker Capsule Task Light
Well, this looks like it could be pretty cool. The Striker Capsule Task Light is a small light that can take on four different configurations; headlamp, magnetic base, spring clip, or lanyard.
We've used some Striker gear over the years and have always liked what we've seen, particularly the small magnetic LED (that happens to look like a WWII naval mine).
If this new one works, it looks like it could be a solid contender for the glove box or tool bag side pocket. It's not available until June, and it will be about $25.
Press release after the jump
Striker is proud to announce their latest innovation, the Capsule Task Light - four lights in one. This multipurpose light can be transformed into four different types of essential lights when attached to one of the multi-functional accessories. The Capsule is one of the most versatile lights found on the market today.
The Capsule is a powered LED module that can be used alone, or in coordination with one of the four accessories. Attach the Capsule to the head strap, and it functions as a headlamp. The magnetic base enables the Capsule to rotate, lock, and aim light, hands-free, in any direction while it is magnetically attached to a ferrous surface, or simply resting on non-magnetic surfaces. The spring steel clip attachment allows the user to clip it to a belt, pocket, or tactical vest to function as a right-angle work light. Finally, the lanyard accessory secures the Capsule to the user's wrist, allowing it to rest comfortably in the palm and be used as a flashlight.
To add to the versatility and ease of use of the Capsule, this task light boasts a large rotary switch, which is centrally located and easy to grip, twist, and adjust light output, even when wearing gloves. The Lumen Tech LEDs produce 60 lumens, allowing this compact light to shine brightly into even the tightest of spaces! Whether the user is a do-it-your-selfer, camper, hobbyist, cyclist, or weekend warrior, the Capsule has the functionality needed for the task at hand.
