Streamlight Inc. has introduced a pink version of its Siege AA ultra-compact lantern to commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. The new light is the latest in the company’s line of “pink” flashlight products designed to raise money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).
Streamlight will donate $2 from the purchase of each pink Siege AA to the BCRF. Including this year’s contribution, the company has donated nearly $583,000 to date to the not-for-profit organization from sales proceeds of its existing pink flashlight products. The company offers pink versions of its Nano Light key chain light and ProTac HL and Strion LED tactical lights, each of which is imprinted with the BCRF logo.
For every pink light sold, Streamlight makes a donation ranging from $1 to $5 to BCRF, whose mission is to advance the world’s most promising research to eradicate breast cancer in our lifetime.
“Breast cancer affects millions of women and their families, and Streamlight is proud to continue doing our part to help raise money for a cure for this devastating disease,” said Loring Grove, Streamlight’s global brand manager, and a breast cancer survivor.
The cordless Siege AA lantern uses easily sourced AA alkaline batteries. It is ideal for a wide variety of applications, such as for family camping trips, during power outages, or for lighting up a dark path. Featuring one white and two red LEDs, it provides five output modes and has a glare-reducing globe cover that makes it comfortable to use in close quarters. With the cover removed, the lantern also can be used to illuminate large areas, either by standing it upright or hanging it upside down using the light’s bottom D-ring. Run times range from 7 hours (white LED on High) to 12 days (Red SOS LED).
