Past News Releases


Cyberlux Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: CYBL), a developer and manufacturer of optoelectronic diodal illumination™ products, announced today a donation of 300 “Home Safety Lights” for use during the absence of power in much of hurricane-stricken Southwest Florida.

The Cyberlux “Home Safety Light” is a portable, long-term, energy efficient, interim lighting solution that can be carried or mounted in a permanent location. Weighing less than a pound, the diodal lighting system can provide up to five days of light on one set of eight “AA” batteries, which are included in the package. By changing batteries as needed, the “bright white diode” is guaranteed to last 100,000 hours, or over 20 years of use at 12 hours per day.

"Cyberlux acted quickly in response to the needs of our residents who are without light and other necessities due to the devastation caused by Hurricane Charley," commented Jim von Rinteln of the Collier County Emergency Management Agency. "It is the thoughtful generosity of others like the folks at Cyberlux that provides an element of comfort to those who have lost so much," continued von Rinteln.

"Because it is our business to provide long-term interim lighting solutions for power outages, we felt compelled to help those Florida residents who have suffered from this devastating storm," said Mark Schmidt, president of Cyberlux. "Our advanced technology employs diodal lighting elements which extend the light life of our portable fixtures to a full week of use from one set of batteries – a performance characteristic much appreciated during power outages," concluded Schmidt.

About Cyberlux Corporation

Cyberlux was founded in 2000 to design, develop, manufacture and sell advanced lighting systems that are based on semiconductor-emitted white light from the Gallium Nitride (GaN) diode. The Cyberlux GaN diodal lighting elements consume approximately 90 percent less energy than conventional incandescent light bulbs and perform for more than 20 years in contrast to 750 hours for traditional bulbs.

The company’s products include the ReliaBright Emergency Lighting Augmentation System (ELAS), which has been successfully installed in the City of Cleveland and is positioned to revolutionize the emergency lighting industry. For consumers, the Cyberlux Home Safety Light was introduced in 2003 and quickly became the new standard solution for portable, long-term interim lighting. The company is based in Research Triangle, NC. Additional information is available at
