The ProTac HL 5-X USB offers three selectable programs and is powered by either two rechargeable 18650 USB batteries or four 3-volt CR123A lithium disposable batteries. This multi-fuel capability enables users to charge the light on the go, or insert cell batteries when a charging source is not available.

“The ProTac HL 5-X USB is one of the brightest tactical lights on the market, with flexible battery options for every situation,” said Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael F. Dineen. “The ideal hand-held flood light, the ProTac HL 5-X USB lets you see what is all around you, including hard-to-reach perimeters and corners.”

It also provides 2,500 lumens and a run time of 1 hour and 30 minutes on the high setting when using CR123A batteries. Run times on low are 10 hours and 30 minutes, and 11 hours and 30 minutes, respectively.

The light features a TEN-TAP® programmable switch, which allows for user selection from among three programs: high/strobe/low (factory default); high only; or low/medium/high.

Fabricated from 6000 series machined aircraft aluminum with an anodized finish, the ProTac HL 5-X USB features a multi-function, push-button tactical tail switch that permits one-handed operation. It also has a “sure grip” rubber sleeve to ensure users never lose their grip.

Friday, February 9th, 2018

High-Performance Area Light Offers Individual or Combined Spot and Flood Lighting

EAGLEVILLE, PA, February 9, 2018 – Streamlight® Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting, introduced the Dualie Waypoint®, a high performance spot and area light that allows for individual or simultaneous use of a forward-facing spot beam for distance and a bottom-facing flood light. The alkaline battery-powered light, which delivers up to 750 lumens, combines the best of two popular Streamlight products – the Dualie® dual-function LED flashlight and the Waypoint® pistol-grip searchlight.

First responders, industrial professionals, and outdoor enthusiasts alike will appreciate the Dualie Waypoint’s flexible options, whether using it for illuminating low-lit pathways or performing close-up tasks. And combining both the spot and flood beams can help users to see what is ahead and around them so they can avoid slips, trips and falls.

“The Dualie meets the Waypoint in this all-purpose tool that can be used for virtually every long-range and close-up lighting need,” said Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael F. Dineen. “Users can choose between an ultra-bright spot light or a flood light with a soft, wide beam to meet their distance and area lighting needs, or combine them to optimize navigation and eliminate blind spots. And the Dualie Waypoint provides them with hands-free options for any situation.”

Featuring an ergonomic handle, the Dualie Waypoint hooks over doors, pipes, bars, cables, or ladder rungs for hands-free operation and its innovative D ring and kickstand allow for every lighting need. Because the light is sealed and floats, it even can be used for wet applications.

Offering high, medium, and low intensity modes, the new light uses the latest in LED technology and 4 “C” alkaline batteries (not included) to deliver both extreme brightness and long run times. On high, the front light delivers 750 lumens, 72,000 candela, and a 535-meter beam distance; the bottom-facing light offers 450 lumens, 240 candela, and 31 meters of beam distance. With the front and bottom lights combined, the Dualie Waypoint provides 750 lumens.

Run times for the light range from 3-55 hours when the two beams are combined to 3.5- 125 and 5.75-170 hours for the front and bottom lights, respectively.

The Dualie Waypoint features a push-button switch with momentary and click-on operation. The rotary switch behind the button selects the main (front) beam, bottom (area) light, or both for a combination of distance and pathway lighting in one setting.

The new light features a high-impact polycarbonate casing, an unbreakable polycarbonate lens, a rubberized lens cover, and is O-ring sealed. The light measures 6.75 inches long and 6.5 inches high; it weighs 2.06 pounds with batteries.

The Dualie Waypoint is IPX7-rated, and is impact-resistant tested to 2 meters.

The Dualie Waypoint has an MSRP of $95.00 and a yellow and black design. The light comes with Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.
