 Using the Nano LED
The Nano LED is a miniature sized low output emitter intended for emergency use only. It is not intended to be a daily use flashlight. The Nano LED can be used as a location beacon or marker in emergencies and in ideal conditions is visible for several hundred meters. It can also be used as an emergency light source or electronic candle.
