Streamlight, Inc., a manufacturer of high-performance lighting equipment for professionals, recently announced that it has introduced the Streamlight 3AA HAZ-LO Headlight, providing automotive technicians with a high-intensity, hands-free light for when they need both hands to perform certain tasks.
“A reliable, hands-free light is an essential component for every auto technician’s tool kit,” said Streamlight Chief Operating Officer Ray Sharrah. “Streamlight’s 3AA HAZ-LO headlight gives them the best-in-class, hands-free device to use for repair jobs in hard-to-see, confined spaces.”
Sharrah said the 3AA HAZ-LO headlight combines an impact and weather resistant resin casing, unbreakable polycarbonate lens and the exceptional brightness and reliability of the 1-watt Super High Flux LED, making it ideal for repair work requiring reliability, long run-time and durability.
The 3AA HAZ-LO headlight was approved by Underwriters Laboratories Inc. for meeting the hazardous location standard for safety with Division 1 designation, which covers its use in areas where flammable gases or liquids may be present under normal operating conditions.
Sharrah said that receiving the Division 1 safety rating for the new headlight was further proof of Streamlight’s commitment to provide the highest quality products for automotive professionals who occasionally operate in dangerous circumstances.
The 3AA HAZ-LO contains a 1-watt Super High Flux LED, offering the long life and reliability of an LED with the brightness and range of a conventional bulb – up to seven times brighter than a standard high-intensity LED. With a lifetime of 50,000 hours, the LED never needs replacing, is virtually unbreakable and produces long-range brilliance with a smooth, uniform pattern.
The 3AA HAZ-LO comes with a rubber hard-hat head strap as well as an elastic head strap for general use. The light also features a push button on/off switch and a rubber dome actuator that offers easy operation when wearing heavy gloves. All openings are “O” ring sealed for water resistance.
The 3AA HAZ-LO offers a continuous run time of up to 11 hours of output to 25% intensity. It uses three "AA" size alkaline batteries that are easily replaced and weighs a mere 7.1 ounces with batteries.
The 3AA HAZ-LO Headlight retails for $64.95 and is available in yellow. The headlight also meets applicable European Community Directives.
