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.
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.
eternaLight(tm) Trade-in program
If you are already a proud eternaLight owner but
are seeking to update or upgrade your model,
our trade-in program can save you money.
The process is simple. Products which qualify
for the trade-in program are listed below.
Special order product variations like RW/GW do not qualify.
Qualified products have a trade-in value.
To get the refund, simply
order the product you would like.
Within 15 days of receiving
your new product, send your old unit along with copies of
your new invoice and credit card receipt (if you
paid by credit card).
If your trade-in unit does not function
due to out-of-warranty reasons, your trade-in credit
will be the trade-in value minus $10.00.
If you did not pay by credit card, a check will
be sent. Please allow 2 to 3 weeks for processing.
Limit one unit trade in for each unit purchased.
You must trade for equal or more value.
We are not responsible for lights which are lost
in shipping (never get to us). You must cover
the shipping expense yourself. Credits only
good towards new units purchased directly from
us. The origin of your trade-in light is not relevent.
But, the trade-in credit only applies towards
lights you purchase directly from us, no one
else. This program is subject to change
