EAGLEVILLE, Pa. - Streamlight®, Inc., a leading flashlight manufacturer for sportsmen, hunters and other recreational users, announced it introduced a high performance version of its lightweight, compact tactical PolyTac® LED - the PolyTac® LED HP - on January 1.

The new model offers nearly triple the peak beam intensity of its predecessor for even greater performance. The new light features C4® power LED technology.

The lithium-powered PolyTac LED HP delivers 150 lumens measured system output and 15,000 candela peak beam intensity, enough to provide critical lighting for a variety of outdoor and recreational uses. It features the same compact, lightweight polymer casing as previous PolyTac models.

"This high performance light, in addition to being high intensity, reaches long distances, making it especially useful for tracking game or other outdoor search activities under low light conditions," said Streamlight President Ray Sharrah. "At the same time, it is extremely lightweight and tough, making it an excellent choice for hunters and other outdoor enthusiasts."

The PolyTac LED HP uses a C4 LED bulb which is impervious to shock with a 50,000 hour lifetime to provide 3 hours of continuous runtime to the 10% output level. The light's deep-dish parabolic reflector produces a long-range targeting beam over a distance of more than 800 feet, with optimum peripheral illumination to aid in navigation. It has an unbreakable polycarbonate lens with a scratch-resistant coating.

Weighing only 4.4 ounces and measuring 5.65 inches, the light features a casing made of high-impact, super tough nylon polymer for exceptional durability and a sure grip. It has a tailcap push-button switch for easy, one-handed operation in either momentary or constant on mode. It uses two 3-volt lithium batteries, which have a shelf life of 10 years.

Featuring an IPX7 rated design, the PolyTac LED HP is waterproof to 1 meter for 30 minutes. The light has been tested to the ANSI/NEMA F-1 Flashlight Standard. Available in black or yellow, the PolyTac LED HP retails for $75.00 and comes with Streamlight's Limited Lifetime warranty.
