This project is a total success! But you can still get one for yourself!  Switch can be used while camping, reading in bed, in the closet, outdoors, with frightened children and anywhere else you might need light. It can used hands-free.

Switch features a unique alloy neck which can be molded into any shape to suit your needs, providing cable-free lighting with unparalleled flexibility. Need some “enlightenment” for a circuit board project? Need a light for your grill? Need to brighten up a dark basement? No problem! With some simple bending and twisting, Switch can cater to any occasion wherever and whenever you need light. After that, the belt can be straightened easily to return to your reading lamp; Switch is then ready to fulfill all your other lighting needs and to free your hands while you work or play in the light.

Switch is carefully engineered and passionately crafted. A high capacity lithium ion battery, an energy-efficient LED lighting module, and an energy management chip are generously packed into an extraordinarily compact device with dimensions of merely 4.25’’X2.5’’X1.25’’. It can also comfortably fit into your pocket, clutch, backpack, etc. Weighing only 0.55 pounds, you can barely feel Switch while wearing it. Despite its elegance and compactness, Switch is extremely durable: it can support your lighting needs for 8-14 hours. There is an elegant edition and a sporty edition.

The perks include more than just buying the lamp. You can be a partner/distributor, spend the day with the development team in Connecticut or buy multiple lamps.

Help them go even bigger here!

ForceField Energy Is a Leader in Fast-Growing LED Lighting Industry


Ever since the 2014 U.S. mandate which required a phase-out of incandescent lights in the retail market in favor of LED (light emitting diode) lighting due to environmental concerns, the LED industry has experienced tremendous sales growth and commercial deployments. With an innovative and highly successful “no money down” business strategy, ForceField Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ – FNRG) is helping lead the industry’s charge. 

Across the U.S., 60-watt and 40-watt incandescent bulbs have been phased out and are no longer available for retail sale. These bulbs have been largely replaced by LED lights which are considered “green” and environmentally friendly due to the absence of dangerous chemicals. More important, using these lights reduces your energy consumption by 50-75%! Also, the LED lights’ directional output can provide better directional light than incandescent or fluorescent bulbs. Plus, the payback (return on investment) on commercial lighting replacements with LED is very short. 

Given these very favorable characteristics, industry estimates suggest that U.S. federal, state and local governments could save billions in energy costs. That is why the estimated replacement market worldwide represents a $1 trillion opportunity.

It is no wonder that ForceField’s stock is trading at an all-time high.

ForceField currently boasts more than $100 million in bid proposals and potential revenue over the next few years, through its signed contracts, letters of intent, pilot programs, and official bids, with government entities and major corporations.  Sample deployments include municipal LED street light conversion projects driven by state and federal initiatives such as the President’s Challenge for Advanced Outdoor Lighting and the DOE’s Better Building Program.

In these large scale and high profile deployments, ForceField works in concert with utility and financing leaders to offer an energy efficiency financing program that does not require an upfront capital outlay.  This shrewd financing approach substantially reduces customers’ upfront costs which is so important for governments with strapped budgets, making it a no-brainer. Plus, it enables ForceField to generate very significant revenue over a multi-year timeframe, thus maximizing profit potential.

The company’s approach and high profile contracts have led to record high stock prices and an increase in Wall Street price targets. Investment pros likely see the benefit of ForceField’s positioning. At the rate management is securing new business ForceField Energy is primed to cement its status as a major player in the LED industry.
