Lots of products up on the site this month, Here's a summary for those that don't use our Facebook page.
Hella Mining: Mostly work lights with a power socket normally found on heavy plant vehicles and a padlockable battery master switch. The LED worklights are on a whole other level in terms of brightness comapred to the run of the mill stuff plus they are as tough as old boots thanks to the IP6K9K ratings. We may have found something other than cockroaches that'll survive a nuclear war.
Also from Hella was a small expansion on our range of driving..
