Introducing: Active Lights

It's crazy the number of people you see out exercising in the morning or evening that don't make any attempt to make themselves visible. You can barely see the dark outline of dog walkers, joggers, runners and cyclists during dawn, dusk and in darkness. It's no wonder that around 70% of pedestrian fatalities occur during these hours then. Drivers are more distracted and pedestrians are much harder to see. That's why it is so important to follow the basic safety rules of making yourself VISIBLE. Wear lighter coloured clothing and avoid dark coloured clothing all together. Reflective strips and hi-vis will help but don't rely on them solely. By simply slipping on a lightweight and comfortably fitting Active Light you dramatically increase your visibility and reduce the chances of being hit by another pedestrian or vehicle. That's why Larala Lights has decided to use the same technology employed in their LED furniture and portable decorative lighting range in their new Active Lights range. At present there are two options: one is the LED Arm Band and the other is the LED Waist Bag. 

 

LED arm band running night light

LED Safety Band - designed to be worn around the arm (or leg). Two modes either static or flashing.  

The active light band is designed with the user in mind. An elastic Velcro strap means it is adjustable and can be tightened to comfort. LED light technology allows the active band to be compact and light which is what you want when exercising; there are two settings for the LEDs which are static or for a more noticeable light then a flashing mode. The entire weatherproof silicone band lights up to provide an easy to see strip of light. The active band is suitable for wearing around the arm or around the ankle. Included in the active band are two x CR2032 batteries – the same kind that powers many portable electronic devices like watches, calculators and modern car keys.

There are two colour options: Red & Green.

 

LED waist bag running belt bag

LED Waist Bag - designed to be worn around the waist. LED lights incorporated into the design along with a weatherproof zip pocket perfect for phones, keys, cash or cards.

The LED sports belt bag is made to keep you seen in the darkness. An internal LED light and reflective strips help you stand out when out in the darkness. The water-resistant pouch is big enough to hold the majority of smartphones - even an iPhone 6 plus at a squeeze! Perfectly suited for holding your phone, a debit/credit card and your house keys. 

The LED light is rechargeable with a common household mini USB cord so there's no need to replace batteries. 

An adjustable elastic strap and buckle is designed to suit most body sizes. The elastic keeps the belt bag tight to your body so you don't need to worry about it moving about.
