Strion LED

Streamlight, a leading provider of high-performance lighting equipment, has an LED version of its popular compact Strion® tactical rechargeable flashlight, which provides extraordinary brightness with power C4 LED technology.

The light-weight, aluminum Strion LED flashlight offers three microprocessor-controlled variable light intensity modes, as well as a strobe function, designed to give a wide variety of professionals all the advantages of the original Strion, along with even greater brightness, utility and durability.

“Whether used by first responders or tactical personnel for night-time operations, industrial professionals for inspections, auto repair mechanics for peering under the hood of a car or hunting enthusiasts for lighting up a campsite or trail, the ultra-compact, super-powerful Strion LED is an ideal light to carry,” said Streamlight President and CEO Ray Sharrah. “And the combination of the light’s rechargeability and C4® LED results in one of the lowest operating costs of any flashlight available.” The light’s power LED offers up to a 50,000-hour lifetime and also is impervious to shock. The Strion also easily mounts to weapons.

At its high setting, the Strion LED provides 10,000 candela peak beam intensity and 160 lumens measured system output. The medium mode provides 5,000 candela peak beam intensity and 80 lumens measured system output, while the low mode generates 2,500 candela peak beam intensity and 40 lumens of measured system output. The light features a multi-function, push-button tactical tailswitch, allowing for easy, one-handed operation of the light’s momentary, variable intensity or strobe modes. The tailcap also can be rotated to a “Safe” position.

The Strion LED offers a run time of up to 2 continuous hours at the high setting, up to 4 continuous hours on medium setting and up to 7.5 continuous hours on the low setting. The strobe function operates for up to 5.5 continuous hours.

Virtually indestructible, the Strion LED is constructed of 6000 series machined aircraft aluminum with an anodized finish. The light’s lens is made from temperature-resistant borofloat high temperature glass.

The compact Strion LED model weighs only 5.22 ounces and measures 5.90 inches in length. Powered by a lithium ion battery that is rechargeable up to 500 times, the light fits all existing Strion chargers, and features a clamp-style charge holder with digital control circuitry to prevent overcharging and a charge base LED to indicate charge status. The battery can be fully recharged in three hours.

The Strion comes in a black finish and is rated IPX4 water resistant. It is backed by Streamlight’s limited lifetime warranty. The suggested retail price for the Strion LED is $181.00.
