A new business that is designed to fill the need for lighting while camping has started in Loganville, Georgia.
EZ-UP Light's founder and owner Thad Weed, started the business in January and sent off the first shipments that month.
"While this product has so many uses, it was developed to fill a huge need for the camping and home and garden markets," Weed says. "When I realized my clients didn't have adequate lighting on their campsites at night during their camping adventures, I knew I needed to design something special to fill this need."
The light is designed to be more than simply functional. It also is designed to provide both bright and dimmable lighting, depending on the needs of the customers as well as a customizable ambience.
Some features of the EZ-UP Light include:
-42-foot corded power
-Waterproof rating of IP65
-16 RGB colors
-3-piece modular hardware
-Durable hardware designed four outdoor use
-Clamp-on version will be available first
