About

Where'd you get the idea?

We are a group of friends with the passion of MTB and we often have problems with the reliability of the external batteries.  

Cables that break or disconnect due to vibrations, exploding batteries, low quality torches, STOP IT!

So I joined my job with my passion to create one of the most powerful  torches on the market with integrated plug-in battery, the FIRE CANNON.

The first test was achieved in September 2016 with a " self made" electronic board connected to LED Demoboard.

The result is showed below:

First test performed on the "self made" electronic board - 09-2016

The electronic and mechanical is designed through the use of the latest CAD technology:

The coupling between COB LED ( the most powerful on the market at this time) and highly concentrated optics, provide a powerful and uniform luminous flux.

The high standard electronics allow proper LEDs pilot and the electronic automatically limits the power when the battery is low..  

A temperature control has also been implemented through NTC to avoid overheating to LEDs.

Is the Battery charge Exhausted? 

Don't worry, just change with another charged battery!

The prototypes and future productions will be realized entirely in Italy, this to ensure the highest standards of quality and employment of our country.

The powerful charger included in the box allows quick charging in just 1 hour and 45 min:

 Also to distinguish our product from the low-quality Chinese Flashlight,  we have decided to adopt a warm color temperature of the LEDS. 

This results in less LED performance, but a better color perception, you will see the differences!!!

Fire Cannon is designed for outdoor use only, it can not be used on the road!
