New 2AA LED Version and Enhanced Original Model Meet Changing Needs of Fire and Rescue Professionals
Streamlight's Propolymer 2AA LED & Xenon Flashlights
EAGLEVILLE, Pa. - Streamlight, Inc., a leading flashlight manufacturer for the firefighting and rescue markets, has introduced a new 2AA LED flashlight and an improved 2AA Xenon model. Both flashlights are members of the ProPolymer® family of lights.
According to Streamlight Chief Operating Officer Ray Sharrah, the new and improved lights offer both longevity and power. "LEDs are becoming increasingly popular with firefighting and rescue professionals because of their long life span, extreme durability and their usefulness for close up work such as examining a patient or conducting a search at a fire scene under smoke-filled conditions," said Sharrah. "For professionals who favor incandescent flashlights, the 2AA ProPolymer®, which features a super-bright Xenon bi-pin bulb, has been improved with convenient, single-handed operation," he added.
"While previously, users were required to press the tailcap for momentary illumination or to rotate the facecap bezel for continuous "on" power, the enhanced 2AA ProPolymer enables them to easily switch between the two modes simply by pressing the tailcap, giving them a free hand to treat a patient or handle equipment, for example," said Sharrah.
The 2AA ProPolymer LED model features a .5 Watt, 30,000-hour lifetime High Flux LED that provides an output of 25 lumens typical and works with Streamlight’s proprietary deep-dish parabolic reflector to provide a focused beam, while also optimizing peripheral lighting. Offering a continuous runtime of 18 hours, the light uses two included "AA" alkaline batteries (included). The LED model features the same convenient pushbutton tail switch as the incandescent model.
The 2AA ProPolymer offers a continuous runtime of up to four hours at 4,500 peak beam candlepower (9 lumens typical) and uses two "AA" alkaline batteries (batteries).
Both flashlights measure 6.28 inches, weigh 3.6 ounces and are constructed of virtually indestructible, non-conductive polymer, with a non-slip grip that is co-molded in the casing. Each light features a rubber face cap for impact and shock resistance, an unbreakable polycarbonate lens with scratch resistant coating and is O-ringed sealed for maximum weather resistance.
Available in yellow, the 2AA ProPolymer retails for $20.95, and the 2AA ProPolymer LED retails for $29.95 and is available in yellow and black. Each model includes a convenient wrist lanyard and pocket clip and comes with Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.
