EAGLEVILLE, Pa. - Streamlight®, Inc., a leading manufacturer of high-performance flashlights for fire and rescue personnel, announced it introduced the E-Flood® LiteBox® and E-Flood® FireBox® industrial-duty, rechargeable portable lanterns, featuring C4® power LED technology on January 1.

"These rugged, dependable lanterns use advanced LED technology to provide even brighter flood light than our popular LiteBox and FireBox models, for a wide variety of emergency applications, such as lighting up an area during a search or arson investigation, or illuminating an accident scene under low light conditions," said Streamlight President Ray Sharrah. "They also deliver exceptionally long runtimes, while offering the economy of rechargeable lights."

Sharrah said that the E-Flood models each use six LEDs and wide pattern parabolic reflectors to produce a smooth, uniform flood pattern. Both feature jumper selectable high and low settings to allow selection of more light output or increased runtime. On the high setting, the E-Flood models provide 4,000 candela peak beam intensity and 615 lumens measured system output over a distance of more than 400 feet. On the low setting, they provide 2,150 candela peak beam intensity and 330 lumens measured system output. Run time is up to 8 hours on the high setting and up to 18 hours on the low setting, over a distance of more than 300 feet.

The C4 LEDs are impervious to shock with a 50,000-hour lifespan. Red and green LEDs provide charge status. All models use a zero-maintenance, 6 volt 12Ah sealed lead acid battery which is rechargeable up to 500 times.

The E-Flood LiteBox is available in Standard and Vehicle Mount systems, which both feature a push-button switch and shoulder strap and are available in international safety orange or high-visibility yellow. The Standard system features AC and DC charge cords and a charge rack and the Vehicle Mount system features a vehicle-mountable hard-wire charge rack. The E-Flood LiteBox also comes in a Power Failure model, which features a pushbutton switch and "smart power" failure circuitry that automatically goes on when the power goes off. It is available in international safety orange or beige and includes AC and DC charge cords and a charge rack.

The E-Flood FireBox is available in Standard and Vehicle Mount versions, which both feature a toggle switch and two user-programmable ultra bright blue tail-light LEDs, so users can be seen in any direction no matter which way the light is shining. Both are available in international safety orange or high-visibility yellow and include a shoulder strap. The Standard system features AC and DC charge cords and a charge rack and the Vehicle Mount system features a vehicle-mountable hard-wire charge rack.

All models measure 11.5 inches and weigh 7.9 pounds, and include a high-impact, ABS thermoplastic housing with a rubberized impact bumper, lens ring and cushioned-grip handle that facilitates gripping them with gloves. All E-Flood models fit existing Streamlight LiteBox chargers.

The E-Flood LiteBox and FireBox lanterns have been tested to the ANSI/NEMA FL-1 standard for flashlights, and feature an IPX4 design for water-resistant operation. Most models meet applicable European Community Directives. The charge racks meet requirements of NFPA 1901-14.1.11.2 (2003) mounted in any position.

The E-Flood LiteBox Standard System retails for $310.00, while the suggested retail price for the Standard E-Flood FireBox System is $327.00

All models come with Streamlight's Limited Lifetime Warranty.
