Integrated mining cap lamp and communications system

Consists of an orange battery pack with a LCD screen and the text 'ICCL Integrated Communications Cap Lamp' printed in black. The pack has a black electric cord which is connected to a small yellow and black plastic lamp. The lamp has a metal hook which enables it to be attached to a helmet. This product integrates a number of devices that were once worn by miners as separate items on their belt into a single unit. It combines a through-the-earth communications system, lithium-ion battery and cap lamp power into a lightweight unit. The system can be configured with a number of different communications and power options, and is compatible with existing cap lamps and charging systems.
