Narva upgrades 2016 L.E.D Work Lamp range



Narva 2016 LED Work Lamp Range

Narva upgrades 2016 L.E.D Work Lamp range yet prices stay the same – It’s not often you get something for nothing, but in the case of Narva’s latest L.E.D work lamp range the opposite is true, with many models receiving upgrades while pricing has remained unchanged.

There has been a steady shift towards L.E.D work lamps in recent times due to their many benefits over their halogen counterparts.  Among these benefits are a low current draw and a greater resistance to shock and vibration leading to a longer product life.

Furthermore, the quality of light emitted by L.E.D lamps is considerably whiter and brighter than halogen counterparts, providing greater illumination in the work environment and a quality of light that more closely resembles natural daylight.

The latest upgrades to selected models include increases in light output by up to 60 per cent.  This has been achieved by upsizing from 3W to 5W L.E.Ds in certain variants and moving from 5W to 10W L.E.Ds in others.

Narva’s design team has also worked on the lamps’ aesthetics, delivering sleek and modern new designs while not compromising on the strength and durability the lamps are well regarded for, including virtually unbreakable polycarbonate lens and heavy-duty stainless steel mounting hardware.

The range of L.E.D Work Lamps comprises of three sizes, each of which is also available in white for marine applications, with these utilising stainless steel 316 fittings and all share the similar family design characteristics. Across the 8 lamps in the range the light output ranges from 900 Lumens for the smaller oval shaped lamp to an astonishing 4800 Lumens for the top of the range rectangular model which comprises of 6 10W L.E.Ds.

Despite the large increase in light output the current draw remains exceptionally low with the smallest unit drawing a mere 0.58A and the largest uniting drawing just 3.0A (at 12V).

The upgraded L.E.D Work Lamps are covered by a 5-year L.E.D warranty and are just a small selection of Narva’s expansive work lamp range.  They can be purchased at all leading transport, automotive and four wheel drive outlets throughout Australia at prices starting from approximately $110.00.

Narva LED Interior Globes

Narva Introduces All New Interior LED Globes – It’s now easy to upgrade the look and feel of vehicle interiors and enjoy the many other benefits that L.E.D lighting delivers, following the release of Narva’s all-new interior performance 12V L.E.D globes.

The new performance L.E.D globes provide a brighter light output than traditional globes and unlike most L.E.D globes boast 270° of illumination, while only drawing approximately 20 per cent power of the older style incandescent globes.

Four different colour options are available in the new L.E.D globes: ‘Day White’, ‘Cool White’, ‘Warm Red’ and ‘Cobalt Blue’, ensuring an excellent choice for buyers looking to create their desired ambience.

The new globes are ideal for fitment in most interior areas of cars, boats and recreational vehicles including luggage spaces. It has also become popular to fit L.E.D globes as park or licence plate lights providing a more customised vehicle look (although this is not ADR approved).

For easy fitment, the new globes are non-polarised, meaning that they can be connected in any direction in the globe holder without the risk of shorting out.  And for added peace of mind, all globes are covered by a 3-year L.E.D warranty.

Available in: – T-10 in both festoon and wedge as well as T-15 wedge and SV8-5.8 festoon.
Narva’s new L.E.D interior performance globes are available from leading automotive, marine and four wheel drive outlets nation-wide starting from a recommended retail price of approximately $15.

Narva Probe II Inspection Light Twice as Bright



Narva Probe II

The Probe, already a popular slimline inspection light for use in confined spaces and hard to reach areas, Narva’s Probe now has a replacement, the Narva Probe II, which builds on the many benefits of its predecessor.

Offering twice the light output, along with five hours of continuous illumination, the inspection light can now be charged via micro USB cable.

While these improvements alone will have users clambering for it in the workshop, the benefits don’t stop there.

Other upgrades include a larger rubber moulded grip that is specifically designed to provide non-slip comfort when handling, and a more robust construction, making the Probe II suitable for use also as a general inspection light.

Using the latest high intensity SMD L.E.D technology, the Probe II provides a smooth, broad and even light output. As with the previous Probe, the latest version makes use of handy top-mounted L.E.Ds to provide end tip illumination in small, confined spaces.

Further strengthening its credentials for demanding applications, the lamp features durable construction incorporating a shatterproof polycarbonate lens and is fully sealed to IP66 rating.

Equipped with a Lithium-ion battery, the Probe II benefits from a dramatically-improved run time providing a longer shelf life with no memory effect, meaning the lamp can be recharged at any time and does not require a full charge to continue operating.  To monitor battery status, an L.E.D indicator flashes red when recharging is needed and blue when charged.

To charge the lamp, the Probe II couples to a convenient docking station that can charge directly with the supplied 240V USB charger (includes micro USB lead allowing charging from vehicles and computers) or via the optional 12V USB adaptors.

Despite the many enhancements it boasts over the previous generation lamp, the new Probe II has not increased in price.  It can be purchased from leading automotive, four wheel drive and transport outlets nation-wide, with a recommended retail price of approximately $119.00.
