Streamlight debuts new high-lumen flashlight
The light offers high, medium and low settings as well as a strobe for signaling or disorienting targets
Streamlight introduced the ProTac HL 4, a high-lumen LED flashlight that delivers 2,200 lumens of white light, at FDIC 2016.
The dual-fuel light also permits a choice of either 3V CR123A lithium or Streamlight’s new 18650 rechargeable lithium ion batteries. The light offers high, medium and low settings as well as a strobe for signaling or disorienting targets. The light’s 10-tap programmable switch allows users to select from high/strobe/low (the factory default), high only or low/medium/high.
On high, it delivers 2,200 lumens, 30,000 candela, a 346-meter beam distance and a runtime of up to one hour and 45 minutes, depending on the battery source. On low, the light provides 60 lumens, 800 candela, a beam distance of 56 meters and a runtime of up to 43 hours. The run time for the light’s strobe is up to 3.5 hours, depending on the battery used.
The ProTac HL 4 is powered by either four 3V CR123A lithium batteries, with a shelf life of up to 10 years or two lithium Ion 18650 rechargeable batteries. Streamlight’s 18650 battery charger can recharge two batteries simultaneously and charges through either AC/DC or USB power sources.
Fabricated from 6,000 series machined aircraft aluminum with an anodized finish, the light features a multi-function, push-button tail switch that permits one-handed operation of momentary, variable intensity or strobe modes.
The ProTac HL 4 is 8.63 inches long and weighs 1 pound, 1 ounce with CR123 batteries and 1 pound, 2 ounces with 18650 batteries. It has an IPX7 rated design for waterproof operation to 1 meter for 30 minutes, and is impact resistance-tested to 1 meter.
Available in black, the ProTac HL 4 sells for $175 and includes Streamlight's limited lifetime warranty.
