Streamlight's New H.I.D. LiteBox

EAGLEVILLE, Pa. - Set to completely rewrite the definition of "bright" for portable, rechargeable search lights, Streamlight - today unveiled its new HID LiteBox - lantern to select attendees of the 2007 SHOT Show in Orlando, Fla.

The HID LiteBox is Streamlight's first application of High Intensity Discharge (HID) Xenon lamp technology, which offers incredible brightness - 3350 Lumens typical, or more than eight times brighter than Streamlight's most powerful Halogen-bulb LiteBox. The increased output represents a major advance for law enforcement, military, fire and rescue professionals in need of an ultra-bright portable light capable of providing both spot and scene lighting.

"HID Xenon lamps represent the state-of-the-art in lighting technology today," said Streamlight Chief Operating Officer, Ray Sharrah. "Our new HID LiteBox combines the latest High Intensity Discharge Xenon lamp technology with our proven LiteBox lantern platform. This allows the thousands of agencies already using existing LiteBox models to experience the benefits of the new HID technology without the need to upgrade or replace their existing LiteBox charge racks."

Streamlight's proprietary deep-dish parabolic reflector technology combines with the 35-Watt HID lamp to produce up to up to one million peak beam candlepower in an optimized beam pattern that combines a tight, high-intensity beam with ample peripheral illumination for scene lighting. The fully-articulating head allows light to be placed precisely where it's needed, and an integrated elastomer bumper ring protects the lens and lamp from impact-related damage.

Dual white navigation LEDs (9 lumens each, typical) are also included, allowing users to save battery power in situations that don't require the full brightness of the HID lamp. The zero-maintenance 12-Volt, 7.2 Amp/hour sealed lead acid rechargeable battery is rechargeable up to 500 times, and operates the HID lamp for up to 1.75 hours per charge, or the dual LEDs for more than 100 hours per charge. Red and green LEDs provide instant charge status feedback, and the charger features a continuous trickle charge function to keep batteries at their maximum capacity, ready for deployment.

Other HID LiteBox features include:

• Weatherproof, high-impact ABS thermoplastic housing with cushioned grip handle
• Choice of safety orange or black housing
• Integral D-rings allow attachment of an included shoulder strap
• Available IR pass filter attaches to the elastomer lens ring
• Standard system includes HID LiteBox, shoulder strap, AC and DC chargers and charge rack. MSRP: $749.95
• Vehicle mount system includes HID LiteBox, shoulder strap and vehicle-mountable hard-wire charge rack. MSRP: $749.95
• HID LiteBox only - MSRP: $719.95
• One year limited warranty

The Streamlight HID LiteBox will be available for sale in the second quarter of 2007. For more information, visit or call 800-523-7488.
