Rocky Mountain Tool's Pelican™ 9450 Remote Area Lighting System Sheds Light on Hard-to-Reach Places

HYRUM, Utah, May 19 -- With the Pelican(TM) 9450 Remote Area Lighting System (RALS,, darkness and low-light conditions are no longer stumbling blocks for fire and safety professionals, military personnel, utility service companies and even photographers.

Distributed by Rocky Mountain Tool (, RALS is an entirely self-contained, powerful emergency light that throws 1280 lumens of white Luxeon light, thanks to a detachable bank of 16 one-watt LED modules in its head. A sealed lead-acid battery powers 17 hours of light, with 9 hours of peak light. In an emergency situation, the RALS auxiliary socket can power other devices, including cell phones and laptop computers.

"We are extremely pleased to offer our customers the Pelican RALS," stated Ben Miller, general manager of Rocky Mountain Tool. "This is the first emergency area light that can be used anywhere in the world, under any circumstances, and we are making it available for under $1,000."

RALS weighs in at just 54 pounds, making it easy to carry and move with or without a vehicle. The unit's diffuser throws bright light over a wide area; when the diffuser is removed, the RALS becomes a penetrating spotlight that will illuminate the darkness over 100 yards away.

"The Pelican RALS removes a major tactical hindrance for medical, safety and rescue professionals working in out-of-the-way places," said Miller. "It provides a reliable, rechargeable light source independent of stationary power sources. We encourage anyone in need of a brilliant, portable light to visit for the Pelican RALS."

The Pelican Remote Area Lighting System is available through Rocky Mountain Tool; customers can choose from durable orange or black cases. The company also offers replacement diffuser lenses for the unit. To learn more, visit
