Streamlight® Introduces PT(TM) Family of Flashlights

New C4® LED Tactical Models Are Light-Weight, Ultra-Compact and Offer Strobing

EAGLEVILLE, PA - Streamlight®, Inc., a leading manufacturer of high-performance lighting equipment, announced it introduced the PT(TM) series of flashlights on January 1, designed to give users ultra-compact, light-weight tactical personal lighting tools with up to 180 lumens measured system output and 50 hours of runtime over a distance of more than 125 meters. Each of the new lights, including the PT(TM) 1L, PT(TM) 2L, PT(TM) 1AA and PT(TM) 2AA, features a strobe setting, providing first responders, occupational users and consumers alike with even greater versatility.

"These lights are the smallest and most lightweight in Streamlight's line of handheld tactical products, yet are powered by a C4 LED to provide super brightness and long run times," said Streamlight President Ray Sharrah. "The combination of their small size and power LED makes them among the brightest tactical personal lights for their size, useful for night-time situations, secondary lights on the beat, all-purpose lights for hunting or camping, for repairs or inspections on a shop or plant floor or for do-it-yourself applications."

Each of the models offers a high and low intensity setting as well as a strobe function for disorienting suspects or as a signaling device. Featuring durable anodized aluminum construction, all of the lights also include a convenient push-button tactical tail switch for easy, one-handed operation of the momentary, variable intensity or strobe modes. The PT 2L is also gun mountable, attaching to long guns with Picatinny rails.

The ultra-compact lights require either one or two CR123A lithium batteries (the PT 1L and 2L) or one or two "AA" alkaline batteries (the PT 1AA and PT 2AA). All batteries are included.

All models feature a C4 LED that is that is impervious to shock with a 50,000 hour lifetime. The PT 1L delivers a light output of 110 lumens measured system output, 2,250 candela peak beam intensity and a continuous runtime of 1 hour and 45 minutes on the high setting, while offering 12 lumens, 225 candela and 14 hours of runtime on the low setting. The PT 2L offers 180 lumens, 4,000 candela and 150 minutes of runtime on the high setting, while offering 10 lumens, 300 candela and 50 hours of runtime on the low setting. In strobe mode, the two lights offer 3 and 6 hours of runtime, respectively.

The PT 1AA provides 50 lumens, 1,450 candela and 1 hour and 45 minutes of runtime on high, and 6 lumens, 150 candela and 22 hours of runtime on low, while the PT 2AA provides 120 lumens, 3,000 candela and 110 minutes of runtime on high, and 14 lumens, 250 candela and 21 hours of runtime on low. Both the PT 1AA and PT 2AA offer 4 hours of continuous runtime on the strobe setting.

The PT 1AA measures 3.97 inches in length, and the PT 2AA is 5.97 inches long. The PT 1AA weighs 2.3 ounces, and the PT 2AA weighs 3.4 ounces.
