The MicroStream USB is a compact light aimed at offering longer runtimes with โ€œamazing brightness.โ€ Delivering up to 250 lumens, the flashlight boasts 3.5 hours of total runtime. The light also enjoys the added bonus of a 350mAH lithium ion cell battery that recharges via a USB port located under the sliding sleeve. The light fully recharges in four hours, with red and green LED lights alerting users to charging status.

Measuring 3.87-inches, the MicroStream USB tips scales at only 1.20-ounces. The light utilizes power LED technology with two modes โ€” high and low. High outputs 250 lumens with 1,150 candela and a 68-meter range with runtime at 1.5 hours. Low provides 250 candela and 50 lumens at 31-meters.

The flashlight touts a push-button tail cap switch for one-handed operation for either momentary-on or constant-on modes. Featuring a machined aluminum case, the flashlight is both abrasion-resistant and IPX4 rated for weather resistance in addition to offering drop resistance up to one meter, according to Streamlight.

โ€œThe MicroStream USB is small enough to carry in a pocket or clip to a cap, while offering extraordinary lumen output and the convenience of charging on the go at any USB port or from an AC wall adaptor,โ€ said Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael F. Dineen in a press release. โ€œItโ€™s the ideal lighting tool, whether for automotive or industrial jobs, patrol duty, hunting and other outdoor sports, or DIY jobs.โ€
