VARTA Work Flex Range – Brighten up every DIY project

More and more people find that DIY projects are the perfect way to reduce stress and express their creativity. With the Work Flex Range, VARTA Consumer Batteries presents a series of four multifunctional lights that are perfectly designed to master the challenges of do-it-yourself projects. The Pocket Light, the Area Light, the Telescope Light and the BL30R are now available in stores.

It’s important for do-it-yourselfers to feel confident about their own skills, but it’s even more important for them to have tools they can trust in. If new equipment is to be used regularly, the product must convince users with its high quality and its well-conceived ergonomic design. With the new Work Flex Range, VARTA Consumer Batteries offers a series of robust high-performance lights that have the perfect light for all kind of work projects.

The unique product design leaves no doubt that the lights in this series are made by VARTA. The triangular shape of each light’s body alludes to VARTA’s famous logo, the so-called “beam”. This practical three-sided shape guarantees that the lamp stands stably and won’t roll away when you’re not looking. The distinctive “beam” design recurs in other little details as well, for example, in the on/off switch. A good grip is ensured by an additional rubber coating on the high-quality black plastic case. All lights in the Work Flex Range are extremely durable too. The Pocket Light and the BL30R are protected against splash-water (IPX4). The Area Light and the Telescope Light are additionally protected against penetration by dust (IP54) and can easily withstand a fall from a height of two meters. A plunge from a height of one meter is no problem for the Pocket Light and the BL30R spotlight.

Perfect for a Trouser Pocket

The Work Flex Pocket Light is the most compact member of the Work Flex product family. This handy light has a variety of practical functions. For example, the clip on the top side of the Pocket Light keeps this little light firmly attached to a trouser pocket. Furthermore, with a magnet in the clip it is possible to cling the light to metal objects. The luminosity of the Work Flex Pocket Light is convincing too. Two different light modes make this light variably useable: The SMT LED on the lamp head enables the ideal illumination of details, while the COB LED provides area lighting that’s perfect for illuminating larger surroundings. Thanks to the frosted lens there is a better diffusion of light and it is non-glaring. This lightweight and compact light is especially helpful when a light source is required in a cramped space or when a second tool needs to be held in the same hand.

Widespread Brightness

The Area Light is perfect whenever the job requires illumination throughout a large area.

The combination of a triangular case, a fold-out hook and a magnetic attachment on the side equips the Area Light for an extremely wide range of uses.

Astonishingly Versatile

The Telescope Light is the all-rounder in the Work Flex series. A quick tug on the lamp head reveals the telescope function that gives this light its name. When the lamp body is extended an area light is exposed. The design of the case not only guarantees bright luminosity and endurance, but also offers other practical functions. One of the highlights of the Telescope Light is found at the end of its handle: thanks to an indentation containing a metal bracket, the light can be easily hung on the rung of a ladder or any other protruding surface. A magnet on the back of the light enables it to stick to metal objects.

Very High Performance

The Work Flex BL30R is both the brightest and the largest light in the series. With an impressive total light output of up to 550 lumens and a beam range of up to 460 meters, the BL30R is as multifunctional as the other lights in the Work Flex Range. The BL30R is powered by a permanently installed Li-Ion rechargeable battery that lasts through as many as 500 charging cycles. Thanks to its compact size and a shoulder strap (included) the rechargeable beam lantern can easily be carried. Whenever desired, the strap can be attached to the light so its user can conveniently bring it wherever it will be needed next. Due to its design, the BL30R seems more like a beam lantern than a flashlight: When the light is standing on the floor or any other horizontal surface, a joint at the end of the light lets the user bring the lighting element into various positions. Three different lighting modes further enable the cone of light to shine far, focused, or both. An LED in the light’s handle always shows the current status of the rechargeable battery. This display is also clearly readable when the light is in its folded-out position.
