At Striker Concepts, we are passionate about innovative design solutions. Our mission is to create unique and useful products, that solve a problem for the end user...and we do it with style! We have already produced several successful and award winning designs, and now we are adding The ROVER to our portfolio.

After designing a few really cool flashlights, we have been a bit engrossed in LED's. They have evolved an immense amount in recent years. LED's pack a huge punch of power in an environmentally efficient package, and they are more efficient than traditional incandescent light bulbs. LED's are safer than CFL's (no mercury and fear of breakage), they burn cooler than halogens, and they are much smaller than florescent lights. What is not to like about LEDs? We agree...nothing! We nerd out on LED's all the time.  In fact, those of you who backed our wildly successful Trilight Motion Sensing Garage Ceiling light know just how much we dig LEDs.  Well guess what.  Now we want to expand the line and give you the technology of the Trilight in the palm of your hand…introducing The Rover!   

The Rover is a rechargeable mobile task light that is designed to be lightweight, durable, easily packed, and flood a room, work area, or campsite with usable hands-free light. It features the same cast aluminum head as the Trilight. The aluminum makes it incredibly durable, but it is also a fully functional heat sink. Unlike halogen shop lights, the Rover is always cool to the touch…and cool to look at! 

This aluminum eye candy pivots nearly 180 degrees to ensure that light can be directed exactly where you need it. 

Once aimed, cycle through the 4 modes until you find the one that is right for your needs at the time. High, when you want to impress the neighbors. Strobe when you want to be seen…or party. SOS, when you are seriously in trouble. Low, when the mood calls for it!

The Rover is surrounded by a tempered steel exoskeleton, which has been drop tested…a lot. The steel exoskeleton also acts as a stable base, or frame to hang the light. There is a universal tripod mount on the bottom of the Rover so users can elevate the light if necessary. 

The Rover is powered by dual lithium-ion rechargeable batteries that boast 4000mAh ensuring you will have plenty of power, and long run times. Recharge by simply inserting the supplied USB cable into the plug on the back. If you need longer run times, the Rover can be used while plugged in.

A key feature of The Rover is a very unique variable lens design. When the lens is in the up position, the C.O.B. LED produces over 1200 lumens of light and spreads it nearly 180 degrees, creating a massive flood of light. Slide the variable lens over the LED and this will focus the light to about 120 degrees, adding more of a “hot spot”, which will project the light a little further if you desire it.

The Rover is also compact, lightweight (395grams / 0.87lbs), and of course it is extremely durable for whatever you have in store for it.  Keep it at home or in the garage for those dark projects, or pack it in your backpack, camper, or RV to light the entire camp area.

Check out The Rover with the new FLEXiT Solar Flexible Flashlight.  This is also a brand new light we are releasing at the same time as The Rover.  We can only launch one Kickstarter campaign at a time, so we thought we would just add a reward that created an amazing combo pack of the two lights.  If you want more info on the FLEXiT Solar, just head over to our website at www.strikerconcepts.com to check it out.    

WE HIT 200 BACKERS in 7 days...Time to Celebrate!  As a celebration we are offering ALL of our backers a little perk!  Increase your pledge by only $12 and we will toss our 2.0, DUAL LED, 200 lumen flashlight into the box with your Rover...a $30 value!  See video above for more details.  More perks coming as we unlock future goals, so share share share! :)  

30 seconds of your time could make the difference for our little company. We would certainly appreciate your help, and it is in your best interest to spread the word and get The Rover funded!  Please hit a button below and tag a friend, family member, or coworker who might think this is cool!

Father's Day is just around the corner, so be that gift giving hero to your old man! This will no doubt be the most unique gift they receive...maybe ever! We have something for every budget. Just check out our offers and pick the one that makes you, and your dad, happy!

Risks and challenges

This is not our first product launch. This is exactly what we focus on and love to do. We have already launched several successful and award winning products, Including very successful Kickstarter Campaigns, so rest easy when considering backing this project. We know what we are doing when it comes to bringing a product from concept to market. The ROVER Mobile Task Light is no different. If you would like to research us a bit, check out our website at www.strikerconcepts.com.

We are past the development and tooling stage with the ROVER. We have already tested pre-production units. This project is a reality already! There are no real risks to this project. We are simply using the funding to "Kick" this product into the production phase and buy initial stock.

So, back us with confidence. We will complete the ROVER and ship it to your door in March for the early birds, and May for those of you who jumped in a little later...just in time for Fathers Day! Remember, you may love this, but it could also be a really wonderful and unique gift for a friend or family member!
