Larson Trouble LightIndustrial lighting specialist Larson Electronics has announced the release of a 25 watt LED handheld trouble light that is vapor proof, food safe, and approved for damp locations. This light produces four times as much illumination as a 40 watt bi-axial fluorescent bulb and is ideal for close quarter work, inspection activities, and food handling applications.

The VPHLED-12W-25 work light from Larson Electronics is made of an IP66 rated construction, is vapor proof and suitable for food handling applications. It produces four times as much illumination as a comparable bi-axial fluorescent bulb, making it a more powerful and durable alternative to incandescent and fluorescent work lights. The end caps on this unit are rubber coated to provide secure handling and protection against impacts and vibrations. A food safe polycarbonate lens provides durable protection for the powerful LED assembly. Each end cap has four holes allowing for attached hooks, chains, or ties to the light from each end cap. This LED light is safe for use in damp areas and is sealed against intrusion of vapors.

This unit is designed for daisy chain connections, with a male 5-15P cord cap on one end and a female 5-15C cord cap on the other. 25’ of 16/3 SJOW cable is provided for line in cable, and 3’ for line out cable. Operators can connect multiple units end-to-end for up to thirty units on a single 10 amp circuit. The 50,000 hour operating life and cool operation of the LEDs, rugged aluminum housing, polycarbonate lens, and high output of this lamp make it an ideal work light for operators looking to upgrade from fragile fluorescent and hot running incandescent work lights. This LED work light will outlast incandescent and fluorescent lamps, has none of the high heat that can cause burns from accidental contact, and does not require a ballast to operate. These features, in combination with its’ high light output, results in a work light that out performs traditional hand lamps by every measure.

“This vapor proof LED work light measures twenty-four inches in length and is designed to be daisy chained in order to achieve more light output if needed,” said Rob Bresnahan with “It produces 2,800 lumens of bright, white light while drawing only 25 watt of power.”
