The ASP Scribe AAA has the dimensions and feel of a fine writing instrument. It is easily carried in a suit pocket, shirt or pants. The rear button activation is instantly accessible, rapid and quiet. The Scribe is a one hand light. There are no complex settings, elaborate activation codes or secret functions. A simple push of the button provides brilliant intermittent or constant illumination. The uniqueness of the Scribe is the amount of technology that has been compressed into the form factor. Each Scribe is built to professional law enforcement standards. 6061 T6 aerospace aluminum is anodized with matte black Type III hardcoat and accented with Black Chrome, 18K Gold or Silver plating. A precision ground glass lens is optically coated on both sides. The heat treated pocket clip is replaceable. A constant current circuit board drives a Cree XPG2 R5 to 145 lumens as measured against the ANSI FL-1 Standard. A heat management system controls the body temperature of the light. The mirror polished aluminum reflector provides a penetrating central beam with a room illuminating halo. The Scribe light accepts universally available AAA alkaline batteries. Newly introduced Energizer AAA lithium power cells run up to nine times (9x) longer than their alkaline counterparts.
