Safety Type of Portable Lantern

Safety Type of Portable Lantern

A safety type of portable electric lantern, said to be the first one to be approved for use in hazardous locations by the Underwriters’ Laboratories, has been placed on the market by the Economy Electric Lantern Company, Chicago.

The safety feature is obtained by a simple arrangement by which the circuit is opened whenever the lens is removed or is broken.

The lantern is operated by a sixvolt battery and a minature lamp having a current consumption of 0.5 amperes at 5 volts.
