About this project

 

 

Hello everyone. We are the "ULed team". We created this product for you and people who needs a flashlight with SUPER illumination, good functionality and love minimalistic design. That was the main goals for us. And we did it.

 

That's more powerful than any other serially manufactured flashlight of the corresponding size. ULed will perfectly illuminate the space ahead of you, leaving no dark corners. ULed is a real monster of light. It's perfect for search operations in low visibility conditions and many other situations.

 ULed is equipped with ultra bright LED capable of an exceedingly bright 8000 maximum lumen output. ULed features three levels of illumination and two safety modes: Low, Medium, High, Strobe, SOS. 

 

 Light modes can be easily adjusted with the integrated digital push button switch on the back of the flashlight.

We use Ultra bright COB LED (Chips on Board) , is a new technology of LED packaging for LED light. Multi LED chips are packaged together as one lighting module. When it light up, it looks like a crazy fire in your hand. 

ULed delivers perfectly uniform light ideally suited to the human eye's (full range of vision). 

 ULed light capabilities dramatically enhance your ability to be more aware of your surroundings where your peripheral vision can be fully utilized.

It was a long time for us. After third months of meetings and lots of coffee, we came up with a design that includes the best of the best, adds our own ULed originality, and absolutely makes us proud.

When we were creating ULed we wanted to make something special for you. Something, that can't be bought on AliExpress or Ebay . Well, it's not compact.

 The dimensions of all modifications - 11.8 x 2 inch or (290 x 50 mm).

 So you can't put it in your pocket. But it's not made for illuminating your bunch of keys at night time! The most powerful flashlight doesn't have to be the size of a cigarette lighter, does it?

 

Due to the built-in USB-port and the powerful battery, you can always charge your smartphone, tablet, camera and  in places where there is no access to any power source.

 A fully charged ULed with 20,000mAh of battery capacity. Here is a list of popular mobile devices and their battery capacities:

  •   Samsung S5: 2800mAh
  •  iPhone 6: 1810mAh 
  •  iPhone 6+: 2915mAh 
  •  HTC m8: 2600mAh 
  •  GoPro HERO4: 1180mAh
  •  Nexus: 2300mAh 
  •  Sony: 2330mAh 
  • LG: 3000mAh

Having light when you need it and where you need it allows you to be more productive. Most importantly, knowing how long your light will last can mean the difference between life and death.

ULed solves this problem with a System of Battery Monitoring (SBM) coupled with an OLED display. ULed's computer and SBM learns how you're using the flashlight. It then tells you precisely how many day:hours:minutes of battery life you have remaining before ULed's batteries go empty and much more...

ULed comes with a high density 20000mAh rechargeable Li-ion battery. The battery can typically be charged up to 1000 times before they need to be replaced. This is equivalent to using roughly 10000 AAA alkaline batteries. Often times, users of alkaline battery powered flashlights throw away their batteries prematurely due to the unknown state of charge. With ULed you can avoid this problem by simply reading the state of charge on the integrated OLED display.

ULed can be charged from any USB power source. Simply plug in the provided USB retractable cable between ULed. Charging is automatically activated. ULed MCU samples and analyzes the USB port's current output capabilities and accurately displays the time remaining before ULed becomes fully charged. ULed knows when the batteries have become fully charged and will deactivate the charging circuitry automatically to prevent the batteries from overcharge and overheating for added safety.

 

 Though we developed a good prototype for Uled we will continue to make improvements so that our final product was even better than the original prototype.

We're confident that our manufacturing resources, connections, and infrastructure will be able to deliver ULed into your hands according to our delivery schedules.

Aluminum - Manufacturing ULed body requires machining. Once the aluminum is in its final shape and form, it will be sanded and polished to create a smooth and shiny luster.

Plastic - Manufacturing the internal plastic components of ULed requires a process called injection molding. ULed spacers and holders will be made from high grade, impact resistant plastic.

Electronics Manufacturing and Assembly - Manufacturing the electronics requires a printed circuit board (PCB) made of fiberglass base board with copper interconnects. ULed's complex electronics requires that the PCB be manufactured with the tightest of tolerances to ensure reliable electrical connections between the numerous components to be placed on it.

We want you to make a smart choice. That's why we want to tell you about other flashlights of this type. If you compare our flashlight with other products of the same type, you can make your choice without any preconceptions. Have a look at some of them:
