Browning is a leading manufacturer of portable battery-powered lighting for hunters and shooters with more than 35 styles in the product line. Learn what Browning does to make the specialized, high-performance lights you need. Every Browning light is designed and engineered in the USA.
FL-1 LIGHT PERFORMANCE STANDARDS – Browning proudly participates in FL-1 light performance standards for measuring and stating performance claims for all portable lights. This includes Brightness (Lumens), Distance, Run Time, Water Resistance and Impact Resistance. FL-1 provides the only reliable apples-to-apples comparison between models and is used by most major manufacturers. Look for these FL-1 symbols on Browning light packaging.
LED TECHNOLOGY – LEDs are preferred over Xenon bulbs for most uses, thus all Browning lights now use LED designs. LEDs use batteries more efficiently, illuminate at greater distances, emit a clean, even beam and will never burn out under normal use. Like most technology, LEDs keep getting better every year.
HAND-HELD OR HANDS-FREE – Headlamps and cap lights allow the use of both hands for tasks like dressing a deer, fixing a truck or finding a path through the woods. Modern technology makes many headlamps as powerful as larger hand-held flashlights. Some lights are versatile and can be worn as a headlamp, clipped to a shirt pocket or to the brim of a hat.
LONG RUN TIME – By using advanced digital circuitry, highly efficient LEDs and low-resistance switches, Browning is able to offer extra long run times on many lights. These extended run times could be the difference between getting home safely and having to spend the night in the woods.
BATTERIES – Rechargeable Lithium batteries are used in many high-performing Browning lights. Lithium batteries pack twice the power of alkaline batteries for their weight and operate well at very cold temperatures. Other lights in the Browning line use AA and AAA alkaline batteries because they cost less than Lithium batteries and are readily available anywhere in the world. The latest integrated circuit designs in some Browning lights allow alkaline batteries to approach the performance of lithium batteries.
SWITCH SETTINGS – Multiple switch settings (high, low and in-between) help preserve battery life and allow selection of options such as LED color and flashing mode. The lock-out switches found on most Browning lights keep the light from being accidentally turned on in a pack or pocket. A Fast Strobe setting is available on many Browning lights and can be useful for self-protection and for signalling during an emergency.
COLORED LEDs – Red, green and blue LEDs help preserve night vision and are great for map reading. They are less visible than white light to many types of game animals.
