August 9, 2021

Seattle-based brand builds on lighting and campfire legacy with two new offerings

Seattle, WA – August 9, 2021 –  UCO has been making quality camp lighting products for 50 years. Ever since the introduction of their legendary Original Candle Lantern, which is still in-line today, they have continued to offer quality products in the categories of fire starting, LED lanterns, headlamps, portable fire pits, and more. This year, UCO is proud to unveil two new products that expand on that legacy: the Arc Lighter & Flashlight, and the Flatpack Large Portable Grill & Firepit.

“The UCO legacy is that of warmth and light so these are natural additions to our line and they satisfy people’s needs from the backyard to the trailhead and beyond,” says Drew Keegan, President of Industrial Revolution. “Being compact and multifunctional are key design attributes for UCO and these both shine in that regard.”

A clever 2-in-1 camp gadget, the Arc Lighter & Flashlight is a dimmable, rechargeable 100 lumen LED flashlight which can also flip open to reveal a dual-arc plasma lighter that burns at 1400 degrees for fast, windproof lighting. The same button operates the flashlight and the lighter. The Arc recharges with an included mini-USB cord. Available in September, the Arc Lighter & Flashlight with an MSRP of $19.99.

New to UCO’s bestselling Flatpack lineup, the Flatpack Large Portable Grill & Firepit is ideal for feeding a crowd or enjoying a low impact fire. It folds flat for easy storage/transport and only takes 30 seconds to set up. Boasting a full 320 square inches of cooking surface, the Flatpack Large Grill & Firepit is the largest grill UCO has ever made, and easily holds standard cord cut firewood up to 18 inches long, allowing for a proper fire. Featuring a two-piece removable grill grate, campers can tend to the coals on one side while continuing to cook on the other – or remove both grates completely to enjoy a full-sized, low-impact firepit. Made from durable, rust- and corrosion-resistant stainless steel, the Flatpack Large folds down to less than 2 inches thick and stows away in the included carrying case. Available starting in September with an MSRP of $99.99.

The Arc Lighter & Flashlight and the Flatpack large Portable Grill & Firepit will be on display at Outdoor Retailer, at the Industrial Revolution booth (47023-UL). For more information, please visit media inquiries, please contact
