Streamlight announced the launch of the ProTac 90X USB on 28 July – a multi-fuel right-angle light that offers up to 1,000 lumens and features a 90° head for multiple lighting needs.
The latest addition to the ProTac series of tactical lights is a complete rechargeable system that includes a Streamlight SL-B26 protected Li-Ion USB rechargeable battery pack with an integrated micro-USB port and charging cord. A ProTac 90X with two CR123A batteries is also available. This multi-fuel capability enables users to charge the light ‘on the go’ or to insert cell batteries when a charging source is unavailable.
The versatile new light can be used either as a handheld light or attached to MOLLE, belts, harnesses and other gear for hands-free use. When using the SL-B26 USB LI-Ion battery pack, the ProTac 90X USB delivers 1,000 lumens and runs for 1hr 45min on high. It also provides 1,000 lumens and a run time of 2hr 30min on the high setting when using CR123A batteries.
Featuring a multi-function, push button switch, the light is made from 6000 series machined aluminium with a Type II MIL-Spec anodized finish. Just 4.39in long, it weighs 4.9oz ounces with the battery; the ProTac 90X model weighs 4.4oz with two CR123A batteries.
The light features an IPX7-rated design that makes it waterproof to 1m for 30min and is also impact-resistant to two metres.
“The combination of its 90° head, powerful light output and multiple attachment methods battery make the ProTac 90X USB our brightest and most versatile everyday carry light available,” stated VP, Sales and Marketing, Michael F Dineen. “Its multi-fuel battery technology gives users the ability to power and recharge through convenient USB recharging or via disposable batteries, making it the ideal choice for tactical, first responder, outdoor and other users when conducting maneuvers or search operations, or performing other tasks under low light conditions.”
