Let There Be Light & Sound

Let There Be Light & Sound, says NARVA

Long associated with premium automotive lighting, NARVA has decided to expand its expertise into combined sound and light products in New Zealand.

Under its new Advanced Lighting Systems (ALS) range, NARVA has released the L.E.D Audio Lights, which bring a crisp white light with audio clarity to the camping ground and other recreational uses this summer, as well as being highly suited to workshop and other trade applications. They’ll be able to listen to hi-fi quality sound, linked with great lighting.

“If you are going camping this summer, spending an evening at the beach or just relaxing outside, you’re going to want to have music and outdoor lighting, and the NARVA ALS Audio Light system is a super-easy way of combining both in a single product – and the best thing is that you don’t need a power connection because they can be used remotely and are re-chargeable,” says Tim Paterson, National Sales Manager for Griffiths Equipment Ltd.

“Being portable, they are equally great for moving around a workshop or other work space where people want to listen to music and often require additional lighting to see better under the bonnet or into a dark corner.”

NARVA has developed three model variants for both outdoor and indoor environments that produce 600, 2,000 and 5,000 Lumens of output respectively, with the audio lights all featuring high efficiency COB L.E.Ds and high quality Bluetooth® speakers to provide quick and easy connection with any smart phone or tablet and deliver impressive maximum volumes (84±3dB).

The NARVA ALS Audio Lights have a Bluetooth® range of up to 20 metres and also remember the last device they were paired with, making it even easier for repeat use. All three models also feature a glow-in-the-dark locator making them fast to find in the dark when switched off.

The range begins with the rechargeable 71400 model. Producing 600 Lumens, this is a compact hand-held light with a 90-degree rear bracket and magnetised base that makes it simple to position on a number of surfaces. At full power, the audio light will shine brightly for 2 hours; at half power (300 Lumens) battery life is extended to 4 hours and if used as an audio device alone, the battery life extends to 15 hours.

To ensure reliable performance, the 71400 is water and dust resistant to IP65, making it ideal for harsh environments. Charge time for the unit’s 3.7V 3200mAh Li-ion Battery from flat to fully charged is between three and four hours via the included USB lead.

The larger 71404 Audio Light produces an even more impressive 2,000 Lumens of output. It can be operated both corded or as a rechargeable unit, thanks to its 10.8V 6000mAh Li-ion Battery.

Depending on the light output selected (adjustable via a dimmer control feature, which also includes a visual battery life readout), this Audio Light will shine its light for between 2.5-to-12 hours yet takes only between 4 and 5 hours to fully charge, via either the included USB cable or 5-metre, 240V AC power cable.

As with the smaller 71400 variant, the 71404 also includes a powerful magnetised base allowing flexible placement options.

At the top of the new Audio Light range is the 71406 unit, which produces a brilliant 5,000 Lumens of bright light output. Battery life is again dependent on the level of output at which the unit is operated. This ranges between 1.5-to-17.5 hours and is adjusted via the same dimmer and battery life indicator as the 71404.

Charging time for this powerful Audio Light, using either USB lead or 5-metre, 240V AC power cable, takes just 3-to-4 hours as it contains the same high performing Lithium battery as the 71404.  

The two larger lights also feature a power bank function to charge mobile devices.

To complement the 71404 and 71406 Audio Lights, at additional cost, NARVA offers two stand options allowing more flexible mounting, particularly for the workshop or out in the field. On offer is a height adjustable (135cm-to-300cm), heavy-duty tripod stand (Part No. 71470) as well as a height adjustable (75cm to 180cm) stand with lockable castors, providing convenient movement in garages or on building sites (Part No. 71472). The audio lights easily couple to the stands using a heavy-duty mounting bracket, which forms the base of these lights.

All NARVA ALS Audio Light models are impact-resistant, made with high quality aluminium housings for reliability in demanding conditions and they are patent-protected and covered by a 2-year warranty.

The new NARVA ALS L.E.D Audio Light range is available from leading automotive outlets throughout New Zealand.
