The lamp has a comfortable, contoured carrying handle that provides easy reach to the power switch. It's built to withstand tough use with a durable, high-impact plastic housing and stainless-steel tube guard that protects against accidental breakage. The B-260 is powered by one rechargeable 6-volt, lead-acid battery that provides up to five hours (dual tubes) or seven hours (single tube) of continuous operation.
The battery is rated for 200 to 1,000 charge/ discharge cycles depending on the depth of discharge. A red LED indicator light shows when the charger is operating. The battery is designed to last 4 to 5 years under normal conditions. Recharging is simple — just plug the charging cord into an AC outlet and let the unit charge for approximately 24 hours.
