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

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: Model 4X -

Wow, sorry for the problem. The only way I can imagine this happened is if it was overtightened which is quite easy to do. Because the PC plastic will take a lot of abuse but not over a long period (stress) it easy to overtighten and think everything is OK. If you never opened it, it is possible that a torque setting on the screw drivers at the factory were incorrect. Anyway, it has a lifetime warranty. Just send it back and we will repair it.

    Thank You. I will send it in.
    I dropped it only once. Never opened it either.
    The only thing that I can think of that MIGHT be the problem is I've carry it in my front pants pocket every day. Could this explain it?
    Thanks Again! Tom M.

      I doubt that kind of stress is present and enduring in your pocket, sounds like a factory torque mistake.

      WOW!!! Very impressed!

      I got a replacemnt today for my Model 4X - "EliteXRay". This is a brand new unit you sent me, with new gasket, & even a fresh set of Lithium batteries!
      To say that I am very impressed, is an understatement. Thanks guys. I WILL be buying from you in the future! Wish other companies had 1/10th the class as yours does.
      Great job, & keep up the good work.
      Thanks Again!
