Portland, OR -( Coast Products introduces the high-powered FL70 headlamp, designed specifically for mechanics and anyone who works on vehicles.

This all-new focusing headlamp offers one of the most innovative, brightest – up to 405 lumens – and most durable LED headlamps available. It offers features that automotive technicians and service repair mechanics will immediately appreciate.

The new headlamp combines Coast’s industry leading optical technology in a compact size with both light and battery compartment in the front, providing great comfort and durability. Coast Products will exhibit the new FL70, along with a wide array of its popular LED flashlights, headlamps, lanterns, knives and multi-tools, at the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) from November 3-5 in Las Vegas, NV at the Sands Expo at Booth 1476.

Their products offer advanced quality and innovation, the latest patented and proprietary features and technology, and are perfect for every professional or DIY mechanic, retailer or distributor in the automotive aftermarkets channel.

Battery Pack and Light All-in-One

The FL70 is one of four innovative new headlamps – along with the FL60, FL75 and FL85. They launched a new design that combines both battery pack and light into one unit on the front of the headband for easier use and maximized functionality. The powerful and lightweight FL70 headlamp makes working under the hood or chassis simple, providing crystal clear light right where it’s needed. Everything – from finding an errant screw that has rolled away to quickly discerning a troublesome leak’s source in cramped quarters – is easier with the new FL70.

Pure Beam Focusing Satisfies User’s Critical Needs

Coast’s unique Pure Beam Focusing Optic produces superior light output and beam quality with easy-to-adjust twist focus. Quickly shift from ultra wide flood to a long reaching spot with transition halo for wide viewing even in spot mode. The Bulls Eye Spot Beam gives automotive technicians a tight, focused spot with a maximum beam distance of 140 meters (459 feet), while producing an outer ring of flood light that allows a broader area for added side vision. An oversized power switch and easier-to-grip focusing bezel ensure no fumbling in the dark to turn on or adjust the light, even while wearing gloves. The hinged bezel makes light focusing and beam positioning fast and easy, particularly for up-close tasks, such as changing fluids or tightening nuts and bolts.

Easily controllable with the power switch, you can cycle through the high, medium, and low output modes and the helpful dimming function allows simple adjustment of the light output to just the right level for any work application and for low light situations around the repair shop or outdoors. The heavy-duty, hard hat compatible, adjustable headbands provide ultimate comfort and feature reflective material for increased visibility of the wearer.

“With impressive power, beam clarity and runtime, the FL70 headlamp provides exceptional focused LED lighting and just the right illumination for any service or project,” remarked Coast President David Brands. “Whether working on detailed repairs or installations, our new FL70 headlamp delivers advanced benefits in lighting technology for mechanics and automotive experts everywhere.”

Following are the specs for the FL70:

  • Lumens: 405 (High), 230 (Med), 53 (Low)
