STREAMLIGHT® LAUNCHES ULTRASTINGER® LED
EAGLEVILLE, PA, March 26, 2015 -- Streamlight® Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting and weapon light/laser sighting devices, introduced the UltraStinger® LED, featuring the latest in high-powered LED technology. The new light, which provides 1,100 lumens of blinding light and 65,000 candela for a far-reaching beam, is the most powerful model in the signature Stinger® family.
“The UltraStinger LED features a complete redesign of the original UltraStinger, including the latest in C4® LED technology for extreme brightness and an engineered optic that provides superior beam distance downrange,” said Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael F. Dineen. “It’s a tremendous tool for everything from patrol duty and other first responder applications to troubleshooting automotive problems or for a variety of industrial uses.”
Dineen said the new light offers three microprocessor-controlled, variable intensity modes, including high, medium and low, plus a strobe mode. On high, the light delivers 1,100 lumens, 65,000 candela, a beam distance of 510 meters and a run time of one hour and 30 minutes. On low, the light provides a run time of 16 hours, 90 lumens, 5,000 candela, and a beam distance of 141 meters. The strobe setting offers a run time of 3 hours and 15 minutes. A Ten-Tap® programmable switch allows users to select from one of three different programs: high/medium/low/strobe (the factory default), high only without strobe; or high/medium/low without strobe.
Powered by a 5-cell, 6 Volt Ni-MH sub-C battery, the UltraStinger LED works with all existing Stinger chargers. The steady charger fully recharges the light in 10 hours on 100V, 120V, 230V or 240VAC, or 12VDC charge cords. A 2.5 hour fast charger also is available.
The new light features an easy access, head-mounted pushbutton switch that is designed for extremely long life, and an O-ring sealed, unbreakable polycarbonate lens with scratch-resistant coating. Highly durable, the UltraStinger LED has a machined aluminum housing that is anodized against corrosion, both inside and out. It weighs 19.9 ounces and measures 11.82 inches long. The light offers an IPX4-rated design for water-resistant operation, and is impact resistance tested to 3 meters.
