Improved Visibility In Smoke, Rain or Fog with CPO
Unique Reflector Design
When there’s fog, smoke, or dust in the air, a broad-beamed light can blind your co-workers or reflect off of particles in the air or water making for poor visibility. For certain professional lighting needs, sometimes the best light source offers the most center weighted beam. That’s why the engineers at UK developed our patented Compound Path Optics (CPO) technology. The unique design of the CPO reflector captures the light and focuses it into a brighter, and more narrow beam with almost no "spill light".
Less Spill Light

CPO Beam pictured top. Notice that most of the light emitted is centered in the middle of the beam and that the area of spill light is significantly less than the example below.
Conventional beam bottom. The spill light from a parabolic reflector can bounce back and blind you in poor visibility. It is like having your high beam car headlights on in fog. The lamp source is also not shielded, so a nearby person will be blinded looking into at it.
TRS Extends Battery Life
Extend Battery Life
UK has developed a patented technology we call Thermal Recovery System (TRS).
We all know that starting a car in freezing temperature can be difficult because car batteries produce less power when they are cold. Similarly,the batteries use in flashlights also produce less power when they are cold. That’s why the engineers at UK developed our TRS technology. It works by transferring heat generated by the LED into the battery area by means of an internal metal heat sinks.
The result is a cooler LED that burns brighter and warmed batteries that burn longer. This can be essential when used in very cold water or sub-freezing above water temperatures.
