Coast Guard Salutes Carmanah Solar LED Lantern


Carmanah Technologies Inc.'s M704-5 solar LED marine lantern has received official U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) approval for federal aids to navigation.

The high-intensity M704-5 marine lantern joins Carmanah's other USCG-approved products – the M701, M702 and M702-5 lanterns – all of which have been used as low-light-intensity Coast Guard aids to navigation since the late 1990s.

The new M704-5 self-contained solar LED lantern combines four nautical miles of visibility with oversized solar modules and a heavy-duty battery for increased energy collection and storage, according to the Victoria, British Columbia-based technology supplier.
