Using the latest LED and electronics technology, this LED retro fit provides 400 lumens of light output and gives new life to your existing caplamp. It will work with almost any battery combination and will provide light output when normal bulbs will not even light up.

Installation into a caplamp is straight forward and can be carried out in less than 10 minutes using a small flat blade screw driver, full instructions are provided, no soldering or permanent modifications are required.

The lifetime of the unit is well over 20,000 hours, so bulb changing becomes a thing of the past. Light output is from 70 to 400 lumens with even the lowest setting being bright enough to use underground. Mode changing is carried out by turning the cap switch on and off quickly.

The RETRO XP provides full performance with voltage inputs from 2.3 - 6.0V. It will also work with single cell NiCD / NiMH's / Alkaline batteries at reduced light output. If used directly with a standard Oldham 4V 16Ahr battery the run times for the RETRO XP are approximately: Mode 1 (70lm) - 90 Hours, Mode 2 (185lm) - 42 Hours and Mode 4 (400lm) - 19 Hours.

The RETRO XP is a proven unique LED light and the ORIGINAL retro fit, which combines the proven ruggedness of the traditional caplamp with the latest technology.
