Technology Associates Inc.(remembered)
The EternaLight assets of Technology Associates, Inc.
have been transfered to EternaLights, LLC. All orders and services issues will be handled by them.

History:
In 1992, Thomas Hoops and Derone Bryson founded Technology Associates. In 1994, their partnership incorporated under the name of Technology Associates, Inc. Between 1993 and 2000, Technology Associates successfully operated a small chain of computer stores in the Reno/Sparks area which sold and serviced computers.
Technology Associates was also one of the founding investors in Great Basin Internet Services (GBIS), Northern Nevada's Largest Independent internet service provider. In 1998, TA divested itself of GBIS. In 2000, TA divested itself of it's retail stores to pursue manufacturing of the EternaLight flashlight and other related and unrelated products developed by Thomas Hoops and Derone Bryson. In 2007, the organization formerly known as Technology Associates, Inc., founded by Thomas Hoops and Derone Bryson in 1992 ceased to exist.

This site is still a functioning sales platform for the EternaLight products manufactured and sold by EternaLights, LLC. However, the remainder of the site remains as it was in it's finality before the closing of Technology Associates, Inc.

Today Mr. Bryson is privately employed as a Software Engineer. Mr. Hoops is privately employed in a manufacturing company as it's CTO. After working together since 1990, through their various projects and partnerships, Mr. Hoops and Mr. Bryson are still best friends and continue to explore new opportunities together.

Re: Use for shed light?

Our most energy efficient product (light output vs. power in) is the VersaLux ULM. It can operate on a wide range of voltages too. And, one ULM is roughly equivalent to two eternalights. Thanks.

    Is there a self-contained product which incorporates the VersaLux ULM? Thanks.

    Places such as Harbor Freight sell PV panels. What is the minimum set up I would need to use a ULM for lighting my shed. I assume I would need a PV panel, cabling, 12 deep cycle battery. I assume I would need to be careful to not over charge the battery. I also wonder if the ULM can be hooked to a 12V battery at the same time as the PV panel.

    Thanks.

      Depending on temperature extremes just a deep cycle battery recharged occasionaly would work. Just haul it home and hook up to an AC charger. I assume it will be turned off when not in use?
      If you really need to have it self-contained you would need a charge controller. Though depending on use one of those "keep-fresh" solar powered battery maintainers would work.
      For more ideas you could post your question at Candlepowerforums.com.
