SAN FRANCISCO, Ca. - Phoebus Tactical Flashlights of San Francisco, CA introduced two new Rescue brand LED head lamps at the Outdoor Retailer Show last week in Salt Lake City. Phoebus Tactical showed both the Rescue 4 and Rescue 5. Both headlamps feature variable beam spreads, operated by a push/pull of the bezel.

The RHL-4 uses a CREE Q5 LED powered by three AAA batteries nested directly behind the lamp head. The beam angle adjusts quickly from a very narrow 5° spot to a generous 40° flood. Pulling the bezel forward narrows the beam, pushing it back makes it wider. The Rescue 4 has three modes of operation; high, low and strobe, in sequential order controlled by a button switch located on top of the battery compartment. In high mode the Rescue 4 delivers an impressive 225 lumens, running up to 3 hours continuously on a fresh set of batteries. In low mode, the continuous run time stretches out to 15 hours. The battery case base is hinged for a full 90° tilt down from horizontal. A three point head strap makes adjusting for comfort and fit quick and easy.

The Rescue 5 is a compact, rechargeable headlamp kit that includes the head strap, a belt pouch, one rechargeable 14500 Li-ion battery and mini AC charger. The lamp head and battery compartment detach easily from the head strap for independent use. The beam angle can be adjusted from a very narrow 5° spot to a medium 25° of spread by a push/pull of the bezel. The RHL-5 runs on either a rechargeable 14500 Li-ion battery (included) or a single AA battery. Three modes of operation, high, low and strobe are accessed in sequence at the touch of the high visibility orange button switch on the end of the battery compartment. At only 2.5 oz, this compact headlamp is lightweight and durable. In high mode at 160 lumens, the user can expect an outstanding 7.5 hours of continuous run time.

MSRP for the Rescue 5, including battery, AC charger and belt pouch is $55.00. Available at or local dealers
