In 1993, the bank refused to grant them a business loan and they had no real estate to offer as collateral, just fresh ideas and the prototype of the first Ledlenser V8 flashlight. For the gentlemen at the bank, who told them that the V8 was unsellable, that wasn't enough. So In 1994, with 1,000 DM, a sketch book, toolbox and old Atari® computer, twin brothers Rainer and Harald Opolka struck out on their own and founded Ledlenser in their garage in Germany. With all the passion and courage of two young, newly-minted entrepreneurs, they managed without the bank and to their own surprise ended up selling more than 200 million Euros' worth of LED flashlights in the first five years. The V8 became an international design classic and one of the the top-selling LED flashlights in the world. Harald OpolkaNow as they like to say, "We are our own bank." As if to remind anyone of this who might happen by, today a lone, tattered, pirate flag waves over their Solingen headquarters. Fast forward 17 years, hundreds of patents and design awards later, and Ledlenser is now a company of more than 1000 employees, three manufacturing bases and a range of some of the world's highest-quality LED flashlights. And today, just as in the beginning, we remain driven by light - the emission, channeling and powering of light.
A piece of compact high-end physics
Our LED LENSER® M7R convincingly proves that with a good concept, highperformance and an appreciation of the environment are not natural enemies. When it comes to performance, features and functionality there is hardly anythingcomparable.
The focus quality, the illuminating power and the optimised userergonomics of the LED LENSER® M7R have yet to meet their match.
All the benefitsof the M7 were married to the comfortable Floating Charge System – one of the most advanced charging systems of our time.
The operational time has almost doubled (compared to the Ledlenser M7) and the intelligent illumination control of the
Smart Light Technology predestines the Ledlenser M7R for use in professional, every-day situations.
Thanks to high-tech microcontrollers, the flashlights of our M series feature individual light programs.
In addition, their energy consumption is optimized by intelligent software.
Floating Charge System
The Floating Charge System is based on a new principle. Due to the magnetic charge socket, the flashlight seems to hover in its mounting.
The magnetic contact makes for convenient charging, while the lamp remains easily accessible.
No more fiddling by removing of storage batteries in order to recharge them in a separate charging station.
Unreliable and delicate charging plugs are a thing of the past – thanks to wear-free magnetic contacts.
Various connecting possibilities, e.g. USB or car adaptors, top off our new charging concept.
Speed Focus, the one-hand slide focusing mechanism, is fast, reliable and vastly superior to conventional swivel mechanisms.
Adjust the light cone quickly and comfortably with only one hand!
