STREAMLIGHT® DEBUTS HIGH LUMEN LIGHTS
New Lights Boast Up to 640 Lumens
Eagleville, PA — January 15, 2013 — Streamlight® Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting and weapon light/laser sighting devices, debuted its growing line of High Lumen (HL) flashlight models at Booth 12562 at the National Shooting Sport Foundation's 2013 SHOT Show, January 15-18, in Las Vegas. The new lights use state-of-the-art C4® LED technology to provide law enforcement, tactical, outdoor and other users with extreme brightness, delivering up to 640 lumens.
The new lights include the rechargeable Stinger® LED HL™, Stinger DS® LED HL™, and Strion® LED HL™, as well as two gun-mounted models, the TLR-1® HL™, and the TLR-2® HL™.
"With their extraordinary lumen light output, these new HL lights are designed for flooding an area with light, such as when illuminating a dark alley, vehicle, or outdoor path, while still delivering good levels of candela peak beam intensity, and regulated run time," said Streamlight President and CEO Ray Sharrah.
Sharrah added that the new lights were made possible by a recent technology shift in LEDs enabling Streamlight to produce products with high lumens that still meet the company's exacting standards for quality and capability. "While our new HL lights provide maximum illumination, with at least 500 lumens, it was important to us that we designed them in such a way that they continue to offer a strong focused beam and strong levels of regulated run time," he explained.
The new HL lights join Streamlight's existing "Tradition" lights, designed to provide a strong balance between lumens and candela, and its "High Performance" (HP) series of flashlights, which feature the same or slightly more lumens than those in the Tradition line but with more candela. While users may be familiar with models in both series, Streamlight has introduced new technology to increase each light's performance, Sharrah said.
Lights in the Tradition line are designed for the broadest array of applications, such as a duty light in law enforcement or for day-to-day use, and offer the longest regulated run times.
HP models provide similar or slightly higher lumens than those in the Tradition line but deliver superior long-range lighting because of the increased candela. They are designed for applications downrange, such as during search and rescue operations or when lighting up a dark trail.
All the new HL lights come with Streamlight's Limited Lifetime Warranty. The MSRPs for the new HL lights range from $234.00 to $523.00. For more information about Streamlight's HL products, as well as its Tradition and HP lights, visit www.streamlight.com.
