VOLT® Lighting, Tampa-based factory-direct lighting manufacturer, receives today their second Product Innovation Award (PIA) for the VOLT® Coachman™ LED Path & Area Light. The awarding organization, Architectural SSL (Solid-State Lighting), honors the most innovative LED lights on the market. They also acknowledge leaders in the lighting field working to advance the technology.
Alan Brynjolfsson, Founder and President of VOLT® Lighting, comments on the award-winning product, “Coach lights are found outside nearly every home, and they all share the same problem – excessive brightness or glare.

The judges commented on their reasons for giving the award, “Very innovative! This manufacturer is thinking outside the LED box… excellent invention… hiding the light source while offering a beautiful life-like candle is leading-edge… innovative approach.”

This LED candle, with its flickering flame, is the only one of its type – powered by a low voltage current and removable from its bi-pin socket.
Brynjolfsson describes other features of the Coachman™, “Since the candlelight is about the same as a real candle, it is dim enough so the viewer can look upon it without discomfort. But…
