Initial Light Output: 600 - 700 Lumens
Airtight Nickel Cadium Battery (24 hours recharge)
The BDL700 can be installed on top, inside of, or remotely to a CFL fixture with a conduit (included). Remote installation is recommended at a maximum of 6 feet in distance from lamp. For simple visual check up of the charging indicator light and for easy testing, the test/monitor plate can be installed near the fixture. Remote application is possible up to 50 feet from the fixture. Not recommended for use in freezing temperatures.
