Eagleville, PA — May 18, 2016 — Streamlight® Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting and weapon light/laser sighting devices, introduced the lightweight, high lumen, ProTac 1L-1AA. The latest compact addition to the ProTac® series of tactical lights offers the added convenience of using either one CR123A or AA lithium battery, or an easy-to-source AA alkaline battery. Its size and "dual fuel" options make it the perfect Everyday Carry (EDC) light.
The ProTac 1L-1AA uses a high power C4® LED to deliver up to 350 lumens, depending on the battery source selected. Offering high, low and strobe settings, it features a TEN-TAP® programmable switch that allows user selection of one of three different programs: high/strobe/low (factory default); high only; or low/high.
"The ProTac 1L-1AA is the latest addition to our 'dual fuel' lights, which provide multiple battery options, depending on availability or user preference," said Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael F. Dineen. "The combination of its size, output and battery versatility makes its one of the brightest and most versatile everyday carry lights available. It's ideal for tactical, military, outdoor and other users when conducting maneuvers or search operations, or performing other tasks under low-light conditions."
When using one 3 Volt CR123A lithium battery, the ProTac 1L-1AA on High provides 6,400 candela and 350 lumens over a 160-meter distance, with a runtime of one hour and 30 minutes. On the Low setting, the light delivers 720 candela, a 53-meter distance and 40 lumens, with a runtime of 14 hours.
With a AA Alkaline or AA Lithium battery inserted, the light on High provides 2,750 candela, 150 lumens and a 105-meter beam distance; on Low, it offers 720 candela and 40 lumens over 53 meters. Runtimes on the High setting are 1 hour and 20 minutes with a AA Alkaline, and 4 hours and 15 minutes with a AA Lithium battery; on Low, they are 7 hours and 30 minutes and 14 hours, respectively. The Strobe setting runs for up to 8 hours.
The light features a multi-function, pushbutton tactical tail switch, which allows for one-handed operation of the momentary, variable intensity or strobe settings. Fabricated from 6000 series machined aluminum with a black anodized finish, the light features a high temperature, impact-resistant Boro Float glass lens. The ProTac 1L-1AA measures 4.25 inches in length and weighs 2.5 ounces with an included CR123A battery, and 2.8 ounces with an included AA alkaline battery.
