My wife, an avid runner, found that the currently available safety lighting for runners wasn’t really doing what its intended purpose was; lighting her path while running. She felt that the safety lighting options available for outdoor enthusiasts were bulky or hard to wear, or did not provide nearly enough lighting to maneuver safely in low-light conditions.
So I decided to create something to keep her safe while running, and in doing so GoLight was born!
With GoLight you get 300 lumens of light inside of a lightweight non-slip, water resistant housing.
GoLight is great for walkers, runners, hikers, biking, working at night and even for use on dogs or horses. You simply attach the magnetic portion to any part of your clothing or outerwear, or it can easily grip a dog leash or horse reins. The magnetic portion can even attach via the magnet to your car or other metal surface if need be.
GoLight is a truly versatile addition to help light your way during many outdoor activities.
Our patent pending angles on the ultra-bright 300 lumen LED lights provide an excellent pattern for projecting forward light due to the 8 foot wide and 20 foot long illumination swath; thereby helping light your path but also making you or your pet easily visible to others.
GoLights rechargeable battery is good for about 2 hours. The battery quickly recharges via USB in about 15 minutes. GoLights battery is good for about 500 charges.
Dual Rare Earth magnets provide secure fastening on coats, hats, shirts, leashes, backpacks and the like.
The micro points on the back surface of the light prevent slipping on most fabrics.
Good durability: in testing GoLight withstood repeated 10’ drops on to concrete. It is also water resistant so there is no worry about rain or heavy perspiration. GoLight is not rated for actual water sports such as swimming or other high moisture sports.
The photos shown are of the prototypes. Finished product will be slightly different.
Full production of GoLight can begin immediately as soon as our Kickstarter project funds.
We anticipate a shipment date of March 2019.
Risks and challenges
We feel that GoLight is very low risk due to our completed, self-funded research and development.
GoLight is currently ready to go in to production.
