About This Project

Sonox is a multifunctional torch that, due to a ball joint, can be easily demounted from the back plate for a bike or headband. Meaning you can use Sonox in the city for cycling, as well as on a hike in the mountains or as a torch when camping. It contains a white LED which is activated by pressing the push button once to the bicycle mode (with sidelight for better visibility). You can switch to the flashing mode, which is also intended for cycling, and to scattered light for normal flashlight usage. The red LED is designed for unobtrusive close-up lighting. The flashing Alpine emergency signal is called up by another tapping. The integrated sensor confirms the power on with green flashing. The light quantity adjusts at dusk or switches automatically to a smaller light level, if one is looking at something in close range (for example a map). If desired, the lamp is equipped with Bluetooth to set your personal light levels on the computer.
