The optic is composed of a large homogeneous mass of PMMA. When looking down at the optic some tiny inclusions and/or air bubbles may be observed. Especially in the lower, outer edges of the optic. This is normal and is not a defect in the optic.
The input voltage is 3 to 12 volts. Below 6v the light will slowly decrease in output until 3v. At which point the light will shut down. Exceeding 14v may damage the head
The head is protected against reverse polarity.
This light is capable of causing eye damage at close range. Please use the light responsibly!!!
Caution the Head of the Light WILL GET HOT (180* F after 30 minutes still air, ambient 74* F) during continuous use!!! Please use safety precautions. The temperature will be much lower if the light is hand held or mounted in a metal clamp.
