Technology Associates Inc.(remembered)
The EternaLight assets of Technology Associates, Inc.
have been transfered to EternaLights, LLC. All orders and services issues will be handled by them.

In 1992, Thomas Hoops and Derone Bryson founded Technology Associates. In 1994, their partnership incorporated under the name of Technology Associates, Inc. Between 1993 and 2000, Technology Associates successfully operated a small chain of computer stores in the Reno/Sparks area which sold and serviced computers.
Technology Associates was also one of the founding investors in Great Basin Internet Services (GBIS), Northern Nevada's Largest Independent internet service provider. In 1998, TA divested itself of GBIS. In 2000, TA divested itself of it's retail stores to pursue manufacturing of the EternaLight flashlight and other related and unrelated products developed by Thomas Hoops and Derone Bryson. In 2007, the organization formerly known as Technology Associates, Inc., founded by Thomas Hoops and Derone Bryson in 1992 ceased to exist.

This site is still a functioning sales platform for the EternaLight products manufactured and sold by EternaLights, LLC. However, the remainder of the site remains as it was in it's finality before the closing of Technology Associates, Inc.

Today Mr. Bryson is privately employed as a Software Engineer. Mr. Hoops is privately employed in a manufacturing company as it's CTO. After working together since 1990, through their various projects and partnerships, Mr. Hoops and Mr. Bryson are still best friends and continue to explore new opportunities together.


  • Crank 30 seconds for over 30 minutes of Light
  • Charge your cell phone
  • Red and white LEDs and 14 modes of function
Yes, you may have seen lights that look like this before. In fact, some look exactly like this one. But NONE function or perform like it! Unlike other look-a-likes, the GeneRay contains the same EternaLight microchip that is in our popular Derringer. And, like our Derringer, the GeneRay X1 contains 2 white LEDs and one red LED for maximum flexibility in lighting needs. It also has the same 14 multi-function modes as our Derringer. So, while other competing lights may claim longer continuous run times and a few functions, none can beat the GeneRay, thanks to it's EternaLight microchip!
And, regardless of what they may claim, tests show the look-a-likes are only capable of less than 1/3 of the run time of the GeneRay X1 for the same charging energies. When we say "Crank for 30 seconds and get over 30 minutes of light", we mean it. Other lights claim "One minute wind-up provides up to 1 hour of continuous ultra bright light." We don't consider a barely noticable glow to be a "ultra bright light".
The GeneRay X1 is only 5.47" X 2.12" X 1.85" (139 X 54 X 47 mm) and weighs 9.1 oz (260 grams). The GeneRay fits comfortably in your hand. The folding generator crank extends when needed but otherwise is quickly hidden. Perfect for your glove box, back pack, motorhome, house drawer, cabin - whereever you'll need light but may not always have batteries. For performance and operating instructions, click here.
Like the Derringer, the GeneRay X1 possess two powerful white LEDs and a powerful red LED as well. Thus, the GeneRay, has dual color capability. With it's simple single button, you might think the GeneRay X1 just turns on and off. Not so, our lights have a reputation for doing more than any other light and the GeneRay carries on this reputation. 14 modes of operation including, 3 light levels for the white LEDs and two light levels for the Red. An auto-off timer, a low power night locator beacon, a white flasher, a red flasher, an alternate red/white flasher, SOS, battery test and momentary are some of the selection of settings the GeneRay X1 possess. Yet, like other EternaLights, the sophistication of the GeneRay X1 does not overwhelm its ease of use - a 4 year old child can operate it.

GeneRay's flat bottom allows you to set it down without it rolling away. It's soft rubber grips are comfortable and help it stay put in your hand. AND, ITS GENERATOR CAN CHARGE MANY CELL PHONES IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY!
Get one in your hands today and never worry about batteries again! The GeneRay X1 makes an excellent gift for yourself or someone else. It's attractive shape and industrial style and function assure its notable recognition and appreciation by its lucky recipient. The pride and security that comes with owning an EternaLight product can start here today.
