EAGLEVILLE, PA—Streamlight® Inc., a provider of high-performance lighting and weapon light/laser sighting devices, launched the rechargeable Stinger® HPL™ and Strion® HPL™ (High Performance Lumen) lights, new high-lumen, long-range lights with an ultra-bright hotspot for illuminating a broader area on targets. The Stinger HPL also is available in a dual switch model, the Stinger DS® HPL™.
The compact Stinger and Strion HPLs are designed for room clearing, search operations, and other maneuvers under low-light conditions.
The new models offer three microprocessor-controlled, variable intensity modes—high, medium, and low—plus a strobe function. On the high setting, the Stinger models feature 740 lumens and 48,000 candela with a one-hour, 15-minute run time, and a beam distance of 438 meters. On low, the lights feature 190 lumens, 12,000 candela, a run time of four hours, 30 minutes, and a 219-meter beam distance.
On high, the Strion HPL delivers 615 lumens and 40,000 candela, with a one-hour run time and a 400-meter beam distance. On low, it offers 160 lumens, 10,000 candela, a run time of three hours, 45 minutes, and a beam distance of 200 meters.
The new lights feature the latest in C4® LED technology and a deep-dish parabolic reflector that produces a long-range beam with optimal peripheral navigation. The Stinger HPL models are powered by a three-cell, 3.6-V Ni-MH sub-C battery, while the Strion HPL is powered by a lithium ion battery. Both batteries are rechargeable up to 1,000 times. All the new lights fit existing model chargers.
The Stinger HPL and the Strion HPL both feature a multifunction, pushbutton switch for one-handed operation of the light’s momentary, variable intensity or strobe modes. The Stinger DS HPL includes a second, easy-to-access, pushbutton tactical tail switch that is independently operated.
The new lights’ casings are fabricated from 6000 series machined aircraft aluminum with an anodized finish. The Stinger HPL measures 9.23 inches in length and weighs 13.6 ounces; the dual switch model measures 9.65 inches and weighs 14 ounces. The Strion HPL is 5.90 inches long, and weighs 5.2 ounces.
The Stinger HPL and Strion HPL are IPX4-rated for water-resistant operation, and are three- and two-meter impact resistance tested, respectively.
