Streamlight Inc. has introduced its brightest addition to its ProTac family of lights, the ProTac HL 4, a high lumen (HL) flashlight that delivers 2,200 lumens of blinding white light. 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. The light’s TEN-TAP programmable switch allows users to select from high/strobe/low (the factory default); high only; or low/medium/high.
“The ProTac HL 4 is one of the brightest tactical lights on the market today,” said Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael Dineen. “It functions like a hand-held floodlight, providing wide, sweeping lighting while also delivering a strong, focused beam…And for added versatility, it permits users to choose from multiple power sources.”
On high, it delivers 2,200 lumens, 30,000 candela, a 346-meter beam distance and a run time of up to 1 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 run time of up to 43 hours.
The ProTac HL 4 is powered by either four included 3V CR123A lithium batteries, with a shelf life of up to 10 years, or two of Streamlight’s new Lithium Ion 18650 rechargeable batteries. Streamlight also offers an 18650 Battery Charger that can recharge either one or two batteries simultaneously, and permits charging through either AC/DC or USB power sources.
Fabricated from 6000 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. Its “sure grip” rubber sleeve and included lanyard ensure that users will never lose their grip.
The ProTac HL 4 is 8.63” in length and weighs 1 lb., 1 oz. with CR123A batteries and 1 lb., 2 oz. with 18650 batteries. It has an IPX7 rated design for waterproof operation to 1m for 30 minutes, and is impact resistance-tested to one meter.
Available in black, the ProTac HL 4 includes Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.
