Capstone Industries Eco-i-Lite Available in Warehouse Clubs Across the Nation

DEERFIELD BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - February 17, 2009) - South Florida-based Capstone Industries announced today their Eco-i-Lite™ product line is now available in warehouse clubs nationwide in time to prepare for the summer storm season. Designed as the first aesthetically pleasing power failure devices, these multi-functional products combine the convenience of a power failure light, a flashlight, and a nightlight.

Statistics indicate that Americans live in the most severe weather-prone country on Earth. Each year, Americans cope with an average of 10,000 thunderstorms, 5,000 floods, 1,000 tornadoes, and an average of 2 land falling deadly hurricanes. And this on top of winter storms, intense summer heat, high winds and other deadly weather impacts.

"The recent natural disasters and widespread power outages throughout the country have reinforced our belief that these products are necessities for all consumers and businesses," said Reid Goldstein, President of Capstone Industries. "The Eco-i-Lite products were designed to be lightweight and easy to use, making them not only ideal for disasters but convenient for everyday household needs as well."

Each product brings together safety, design and sustainability while including the following features:

--  Automatically turns on when the power goes out
--  LED handheld light comes out of the charging base effortlessly
--  LED nightlight with auto sensor turns on automatically when the room
    or space is dark or can be left on at all times
--  Environmentally friendly rechargeable Lithium Ion battery and LED
    bulbs, which require no replacement
--  Cutting edge Induction Charging base is safe and reliable
--  Low energy consumption
--  Convenient for every room in the house

The Eco-i-Lite™ products use inductive charging versus traditional conductive charging, eliminating the possibility of electric shock from typically exposed conductors. Currently the full size Eco-i-Lite has earned the ENERGY STAR® for meeting strict energy-efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy. On average ENERGY STAR qualified battery chargers will use 35 percent less energy than conventional models.
