With a precision metal frame, Armorized Glass side panels and a Nichia LED that produces 20 lumens of light, the Sapphire USB is significantly sturdier and brighter (10 times brighter) than its popular predecessors in the ASP Wearable Light line.

A custom designed Lithium polymer battery powers the Sapphire USB which will run uninterrupted for approximately 90 minutes and can be fully recharged using the USB port of any computer or a micro USB cell phone charger. All major cell phone manufacturers have agreed to use the micro USB charge ports on their new phones. The Sapphire USB battery indicator blinks red when it is charging and turns solid green when fully charged.

The Sapphire USB has an ambidextrous top mounted on-off switch. The unique design of the switch allows users to push it down for intermittent light or press and slide it forward for a continuous beam. The two motions are designed so the light will not be turned on accidentally.

With a spring loaded metal clip, the Sapphire USB conveniently attaches to belts, backpacks and purses.

"The Sapphire USB was made with both public safety professionals and the general consumer in mind," said ASP Chairman and CEO Kevin Parsons, PhD. "The Sapphire USB is an everyday light for everybody. It's small enough to take with you everywhere and reliable enough to keep you safe in every situation."

The MSRP is $30.00.
