LED Lenser was founded in 1994 by Harald and Rainer Opolka. In spite of the bank refusing to give them a business loan, these ambitious twin brothers started LED Lenser in their garage in Germany with only 1,000 DM, a sketch book, a toolbox and an old ATARI® computer. Their business to their surprise grew and sold more than 200 million Euros’ worth of LED flashlights in the first five years.
Seventeen years later, with hundreds of patents and design awards under its belt, this Solingen, Germany based company has more than 1000 employees and three manufacturer bases. LED Lenser to this day still “remains(s) driven by light – the emission, channeling and powering of light.”
If you’re looking for performance and affordability, a LED Lenser flashlight or headlamp is the tool for you. LED Lenser has a large range of flashlights for all types of use: heavy-duty, full-size, pocket-size, keychains and rechargeables. LED Lenser headlamps offer a large range of use as well: from the full-size headlamps which feature your traditional hands-free light to a clip-able light to a mountable table lamp; to lightweight and rechargeable headlamps.
