The last installment of this three-part series explores the city’s camping lights selection.
Hosting more than 500 camping light suppliers, Ningbo offers a wide selection of fl ashlights, lanterns and other portable luminaires. Aluminum and plastic models are available, fi tted with either CFLs or LEDs.
Many releases can support two or more lighting functions with low, medium and high brightness settings. Some models have an SOS fl ashing option as well.
In the latest designs, makers are combining multiple devices in one unit. Survival, navigation and emergency tools are present in several variants.
In such releases, the common add-ons are compasses, clocks, FM radios and speakers. Hammers and cutters are also present in a number of designs.
Certain units are equipped with mechanisms suitable for specific activities. Several lanterns and headlamps, for instance, incorporate bulbs that can emit blue light for night fishing. A zoom function can be found in a few models.
To support their various functions, recent releases are fi tted with rechargeable lithium batteries that can obtain power from multiple sources. Some camping lights can be charged via a vehicle’s cigarette lighter socket, USB device or built-in solar panel. A number can function for a limited period after being cranked, winded or shaken for several minutes.
Multifunction portable luminaires are available starting at $8. Designs below $20 often employ 0.5 to 3W LED bulbs, while those nearing $30 adopt versions with rated power reaching 7W. Many use Cree diodes, but variants from other local or overseas-based suppliers are employed as well.
Prices of Ningbo-made camping lights are expected to increase about 5 percent in the months ahead. Projected adjustments are due mainly to the yuan-US dollar exchange rate.
