The New Byte: Smaller Just Got Bigger

Affordable and Bright Headlamp Boasts 35 Lumens, 96 Hours of Burntime in Compact Potent Package

BORDENTOWN, N.J. (Sept. 16, 2010) – The new Princeton TecByte headlamp is small, bright and stronger than Hulk – all the attributes you want in a reliable headlamp, plus a little extra muscle. Oh, and it’s affordable too.

Celebrating 35 years as one of the leading manufacturers of innovative outdoor lighting, Princeton Tec introduces the new, burly Byte headlamp (MSRP $19.99) into “The Family.” Weighing in at a lean and mean 2.25-ounces, this dual light headlamp proves that smaller can be better. Having created the Remix and Fuel headlamps to start “The Family,” the tech-savvy lab rats at Princeton Tec realized the need to complete the clan with a strong-like-bull little brother. Hence, the Byte was born.

At 15-percent smaller and 18-percent lighter than its big brothers, the Byte features 35 lumens of light and the same solid asymmetrical single-arm bracket found in its older siblings. With the ability to shed precip like a reptile, the Byte burns with 1 Maxbright LED and 1 red Ultrabright LED – which boast burntimes of 96 and 146 hours, respectively. This dynamic devil also has high and low modes and comes complete with 2 AAA batteries.

Take a big Byte out of darkness and keep yourself bright for your next adventure.
