Quality products - Quality service - Lifetime Warranty
"If your LRI product fails for any reason other than battery expiration, return it for free repair or replacement."
We stand behind every product we make. Period!
For Photon, Photon II and Photon II PRO we recommend the Photon Necklace Accessory:
By using the Photon Necklace accessory as shown in the photo, it makes a great holster for your Photon Micro-Light on your keys, zippers or bags. By snapping your Photon Micro-Light into the holster button down, the light is protected from inadvertent battery drain.
The Necklace accessory is included with Photon II PRO and is available separately ( Photon Necklace and Photon Clip combo)
If you ever have a problem with inadvertent battery drain or just keep finding you light On in your pocket or your keys there are a few things we can recommend.
For all of our products with our Freedom® Technology: X-Light Micro, Freedom, Proton Pro and Fusion.
1) Use Momentary Mode:
Momentary mode changes your light from constant On to squeeze On/Off. When this mode is activated the button will not stay on unless it is pushed constantly. It also allows you to use the light as a signaling device.
- To access this mode press the button rapidly 4 times, or until it the button only stays on when pressed.
- To exit this mode, simply press and hold the button until the light turns off (about 4 seconds).
2) Use 3 Minute Timer Mode:
3 Minute Timer mode automatically shuts the light Off after 3 minutes. While in this mode you have full access to full range brightness control, the 3 strobe beacons and automatic SOS all of which will shut off in 3 minutes. This mode is great because it allows you to use the lights full functionality and is a Warranty against inadvertent battery drain.
- To access this mode press the button rapidly four times or until the button only stays on when pressed. Next press and hold the button, the light will turn itself Off, continue to hold the button for another 5 seconds, the light will blink once to let you know you are now in 3 minute timer mode.
- To exit this mode press the button rapidly four times or until the button only stays on when pressed. Next hold the button for 4 seconds or until the light shuts off. And you have exited 3 minute timer mode!

Laughing Rabbit Inc.
If you have ever read or watched the stories of Br'er Rabbit or Bugs Bunny then you are familiar with how they always succeed by their good humor, quick wits and creativity. We named our company Laughing Rabbit Inc. to embody the type of success that these characters symbolize. Other companies talk about being a wolf or predator and being at the top of the food chain. But we believe that isn't the only way to success.
