Armament Systems and Procedures (ASP), one of the most respected names in law enforcement products, has unveiled its new Tactical USB, the world’s first rechargeable baton light and the shortest on the market, adding only .75” to the total length of a baton.
Powered by a custom Lithium Ion Battery, the Tactical USB’s Cree XPG2 LED light produces a powerful 100 lumens of brilliant-white light with a continuous run-time of about 45 minutes as measured against the ANSI FL-1 Standard.
The Tactical USB can be recharged on the go using a laptop computer or any micro USB cellphone charger.
ASP’s CEO and Chairman Kevin Parsons, PhD, says the Tactical USB is a backup light that makes perfect sense. “With the Tactical USB, you will always have a second extremely bright light easily accessible on your belt,” Parsons said.
ASP’s revolutionary design incorporates a Total Internal Reflective Optical Lens, which is ground from a solid piece of acrylic much like the process of making eyeglasses. This innovative technology allows ASP to design “a very small, very bright light that adds very little length to a baton,” Parsons added.
The Tactical USB’s battery has a protection circuit module to prevent overcharging or short–circuiting, and the battery indicator on the light blinks red when charging and turns solid green when fully charged.
The Tactical USB’s two-position switch allows a public safety professional to easily activate the light intermittently or keep it on constantly.
The Tactical USB comes with a lifetime warranty and a retractable USB to Micro USB cord. Wall and car chargers are optional.
The MSRP is $60.
