About LED Lenser
A Vision Realised
LED lenser was the vision and passion of twin brothers Rainer and Harald Opolka. When in late 1993 they were refused a bank loan to fund production of their prototype LED Lenser V8 torch, they didn't let that stop them. In 1994, with 1,000 DM, a sketch book, toolbox and old Atari® computer, Rainer and Harald struck out on their own and founded LED Lenser in their garage in Solingen Germany. Much to their surprise and as a result of their determination, hard work and passion to engineer the very best lighting instruments, sales of LED Lenser torches exceeded €200 million in the first five years. The V8 became an international design classic and one of the top-selling LED torches in the world.
