Eagleville, PA– Streamlight® Inc. introduced a new Red Nano Light® as part of the company’s Lights for a Cause series of flashlights. The new light will benefit the American Diabetes Association Research Foundation. Streamlight will donate $1.00 to the organization for each of these Red Nano Lights sold. Proceeds will help support research to prevent and find a cure for diabetes, a group of diseases marked by high levels of blood glucose resulting from defects in insulin production, insulin action, or both. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 25.8 million Americans have diabetes, or 8.3 percent of the population. Of this number, 7 million are undiagnosed. It is estimated that an additional 79 million adults aged 20 and older have pre-diabetes. Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States. The tiny keychain light measures 1.47 inches in length and weighs only .36 oz. Fabricated from machined aircraft aluminum, the light runs up to eight hours, powered by four IEC-LR41 coin cells, and delivers 10 lumens. The light features a rotating on/off head switch, a non-rotating snap hook for easy one-handed operation when attached to a keychain, and a FOB that features the Stop Diabetes® logo. The Red Nano Light boasts a 100,000-hour LED that never needs replacing.
