EAGLEVILLE, PA—Streamlight® Inc., a provider of high-performance lighting, introduced the Streamlight® 18650 Lithium Ion Battery and Charger, designed to energize the growing line of Streamlight products that accept 18650 rechargeable batteries. The new, dual-power input charging system permits charging through either AC/DC or USB power sources.
The two-bay cradle can charge either one Streamlight 18650 lithium ion battery or two batteries simultaneously, charging a single battery in as little as 3.5 hours. The charger is equipped with dual power input ports, accepting either 5-V Micro-USB or traditional AC or DC power sources. This gives users a variety of charging options, such as a personal computer, portable USB charger, or 12-VDC automotive power, when a wall outlet is not available.
Streamlight’s new rechargeable 18650 batteries offer 3.7-V, 2,600-mAh and are rechargeable up to 500 times. The charger unit has an impact-resistant engineered polymer housing. Its Micro-USB input has a custom locking feature that charges from Streamlight AC/USB adapters or most other USB sources.
The new lithium ion charger and battery is available in a kit that includes two Streamlight 18650 batteries and either a 120-VAC cord or a custom Micro-USB cord. The charger, available in black, also can be purchased separately. Individual 18650 batteries are available. Each product comes with Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.
