Streamlight continues to increase its lumens, introducing the new ProTac HPL USB light outputting a whopping 1,000 lumens.

The ProTac HPL uses a Steamlight lithium ion rechargeable battery alongside an integrated USB charge port allowing the HPL to be charged via laptop or USB wall charger. Mesuring 7.08-inches in length and tipping scales at 9.24-ounces, the light offers an IPX4 water-resistant design paired with two-meter impact resistance. Available in the ever classic black, the ProTac HPL USB ships with a USB cord and ballistic nylon holster.

“The ProTac HPL USB throws its beam far out in the distance while casting plenty of peripheral light along the way,” Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael F. Dineen, said in a press release. “Tactical, professional and consumer users can use it to flood a dark alley, job site or outdoor path with light, while also seeing objects at long distances. And, for even greater versatility, users either can charge the light on the go, or insert cell batteries when a charging source is not available.”

The ProTac HPL USB boasts three modes — high, medium and low — in addition to a strobe. High delivers 1,000 lumens and 35,000 candela with a range over 374 meters. Streamlight said average run time is one hour and 30 minutes on high and 20 hours on low. Strobe can run continuously for three hours. The light is also equipped with Streamlight’s TEN-TAP Programming. This system permits users to select among three programs to fit their preference or needs. The programs include high/strobe/low, high only and low/medium/high.

Depending on configuration, Streamlight’s ProTac HPL USB will set consumers back $180 to $200.
