Streamlight Inc. introduced the Scorpion HL, which uses state-of-the-art LED technology to deliver 600 lumens. Weighing less than five ounces, and featuring a rubber-armored sleeve to provide a sure grip, the new high lumen (HL) light is the ideal personal carry light for everyone from officers on the beat to outdoor enthusiasts.
"Like our other high lumen products, the Scorpion HL is designed to provide maximum illumination, by flooding a whole room, vehicle or area with extremely bright light, and revealing what might be concealed in dark corners or along perimeters,” said Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael F. Dineen. “This light also is very compact, making it easy for tactical users to carry as a secondary light in a holster or pocket. The Scorpion HL is our exciting next generation offering to the proven Scorpion design.”
The new model uses a C4 power LED to produce a wide, sweeping beam of 600 lumens and 16,000 candela, a run time of one hour and 15 minutes, and a beam distance of 253 meters on the high setting. On low, the light offers 33 lumens, 800 candela, a run time of 18 hours and a beam distance of 57 meters. The light also provides a strobe mode, which runs for 2.5 hours.
The Scorpion HL features a TEN-TAP programmable switch that permits users to select from among three different programs: high/strobe/low (the factory default); high only, or low/high. It includes a multi-function, push-button tail switch that allows for one-handed operation of the light’s momentary, variable intensity or strobe modes. The light uses two (2) 3 volt CR123A lithium batteries.
The new model is fabricated from 6000 series machined aircraft aluminum with an anodized finish. It weighs only 4.8 ounces, and measures just 5.46 inches. Impact resistance-tested to one meter, the light also is rated IPX7 for waterproof operation to one meter for 30 minutes
