In 1994, their partnership incorporated under the name

to pursue manufacturing of the EternaLight flashlight
and other related and unrelated products developed by Thomas Hoops
and Derone Bryson. In 2007,

Derone Bryson in 1992 ceased to exist.
This site is still a
functioning sales platform for the EternaLight products

projects and partnerships, Mr. Hoops and Mr. Bryson are still best friends
and continue to explore new opportunities together.

Disproportionate battery drain|
on Sun, Dec 8th, 2002 17:02:02 UTC
I have noticed that when it is time to change batteries (li++), only one of the batteries appears to be drained. All I have to do is replace that one battery, and I have almost full power (3 out of 4 lights in battery test mode).

The flatter discharge curve of Lithiums may be deceiving your battery tester. There is no way that the light could function from the power of just one cell so certainly there has been power provided by the other cells. Possibly the one battery was substantially weeker than the others (a manufacturer's defect). I don't know but I would be surprised if you were to make this claim three of four times in a row (indicating that you're still using the first two original batteries). Or... you have a a light which has some very unique properties...|
