QUESTIONS ABOUT THE SPORTS-LITE PRODUCT

The tripod is designed to extend up to 3M and with an extra wide footprint is one of the most stable in the market, even up to 25mph winds!

Each Sports-LITE weighs a total of 11kg. The light head weighs 4.5kg and the tripod 6.5kg.

For peace of mind, the Sports-LITE comes complete with a 1 year repair and replace warranty on all electrical parts and 5 years on all metalwork.

The Sports-LITE is waterproof to IP65 and suitable for use in all training conditions.

The Sports-LITE’s can be stored within average sized storage cupboards, club houses, small containers and other small storage storage areas that are available.

There is no light bulb. The light head is made up of lots of LED’s within a module which has been designed to be lightweight, efficient and to last longer than other light fittings on the market.

The Sports-LITE high energy density battery ensures a duration of up to 2 hours 20 minutes can be achieved from a single charge.  For longer training sessions the battery is replaceable so another 2 hour 20 minute battery can be installed to get a total duration of 4 hours 40 minutes at a time.

Your Sports-LITE battery will show its state of charge (SOC) via the 5 LED display on the battery. When the battery power on button pressed, the LED’s will show the charge level. The single red (power on LED) and four green LED’s indicate the battery is fully charged at 100%. As the battery discharges the green LED indicators will gradually go out in approximately 20% stages. When the red LED indicator shows, the battery is low and those relying on the light should finish the task in hand so they aren’t suddenly left in darkness. At approximately 5% SOC the red LED will flash. When the battery is completely exhausted no LED’s will show until the battery is placed on charge again.

The 200wh lithium battery takes 5.5 hours to charge from flat to full capacity. We recommend keeping your batteries fully charged ready for use.

You are able to charge the batteries in a well ventilated area at any time of the day when they are not in use ensuring the batteries will always be ready to use for that unexpected training session at all times.

Each Sports-LITE is delivered with a mains battery charger per light head. Multibank charger options are available to enable charging 5 units at once from one power socket.

Yes each Sports-LITE Training Kit order will be delivered with an Operator’s Manual which will explain all details of how to operate the product. User set up video’s and the manual are also available via QR code directly from each of the Sports-LITE light heads.
