Description of LepiLED

The lamp is designed for the attraction of nocturnal Lepidoptera and other insects, and it is very efficient, lightweight (c. 410 g including cable), handy and robust. The lamp is especially suitable for working in remote areas, and the equipment can easily be transported in backpacks and on air planes.

LepiLED is made of anodized aluminium and a borosilicate glass cylinder. The cooling system is passive and the lamp is almost waterproof. It is recommended protect batteries from rain, e.g. by using plastic bags or containers. Borosilicate glass (3 mm) is long-lived and tough. The emitted light (and radiation) is intense, and some people feel dazzled. When used in in gauze ‘light towers’, the dazzling is less intense. Glass-cylinders can be replaced with a clear or matt plexiglas (=acrylic) cylider. The matt cylinder fully reduces the dazzling, but efficiency / emission is reduced to some extent.

The lamp can be operated with a voltage between 5 and 12 V DC. The lamp is equipped with a 2 meter cable with USB plug, optimized for the use with powerbank batteries. Such batteries (e.g. easy acc 26 Ah) can provide power for about 10 hours.

Other batteries (such as 12 V lead batteries) can be used with the available adapter. Powerbank batteries can easily be recharged with a standard USB charger (as used for mobile phones). They can also be recharged with mobile solar panels in remote areas.

LepiLED will be offered in three versions from April 2018: a standard model, a 'mini' model and a 'maxi' model:
