Streamlight Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting and weapon light/laser sighting devices, introduced its first high lumen lithium battery headlamp, the ProTac HL Headlamp, delivering a blinding 540 lumens. The first in the company’s headlamp line to feature a lightweight, machined aluminum body, it is one of the brightest headlights available for its size, ideal for a variety of tactical, outdoor, first responder and industrial applications. Featuring Streamlight’s TEN-TAP programming, the ProTac HL Headlamp enables users to select among three programs to suit their preference or operating needs: high/medium/low (the factory default setting); high only; or low/medium/high. In addition to its high lumen light output, the ProTac HL Headlamp provides 7,400 candela peak beam intensity and a run time of one hour and 45 minutes on the high setting. On medium, the light provides 95 lumens and eight hours of run time, and on low, it delivers 36 hours of run time and 18 lumens. It uses two 3-Volt CR123A lithium batteries.
The ProTac HL Headlamp features a C4 LED that is impervious to shock with a 50,000 hour lifetime. The headlamp’s casing is fabricated from 6000 series machined aircraft aluminum with an anodized finish, and the light includes a convenient multi-function, push-button switch. This switch provides easy, one-handed operation of the headlamp’s momentary or variable intensity modes.
The ProTac HL Headlamp measures 3.66 inches wide and weighs 6.6 ounces. It comes packaged with an elastic headband and a rubber headband for helmet mounting.
