Eagleville, PA — May 28, 2020 — Streamlight® Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting, launched the PolyTac® 90X USB, a multi-fuel, right-angle personal light that delivers 500 lumens and uses a Streamlight SL B-26™ protected USB rechargeable Li-Ion battery pack. A PolyTac® 90X with two CR123A batteries is also available.
The PolyTac 90X USB is a complete rechargeable system that includes a Streamlight SL-B26 rechargeable battery with integrated micro-USB port.

This multi-fuel capability enables users to charge the light on the go or insert cell batteries when a charging source is unavailable.
"The PolyTac family of lights is among our most popular with fire and rescue personnel because of their extreme brightness, compact size and exceptional durability," said Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael F. Dineen. "This newest addition features a 90° head, multiple attachment methods and multi-fuel battery technology, giving users the ability to power and recharge the light through convenient USB recharging or via disposable batteries. Whether conducting rescue operations, investigating fire scenes or signaling others during emergencies, it's ideal for first responders."
The new light includes an integrated carabiner style D-ring clip, which provides for easy, one-handed attachment to turnout gear or harnesses, and a multi-position, reversible pocket clip that offers several mounting options. It also is available with a Gear Keeper® retractor for attachment to gear, clothing or equipment. The Gear Keeper system features a high-strength nylon tether with a 36-inch extension and six ounces of retraction force.

It also provides 500 lumens and a run time of two hours and 30 minutes on the high setting when using CR123A batteries. A battery indicator built into the on/off button flashes red when battery recharging or replacement is needed.
Featuring a multi-function, head-mounted push button switch that is easy to operate with gloved hands, the light is made from high-impact, super-tough nylon polymer for a sure grip.
