Streamlight®, Inc., a leading flashlight manufacturer for industrial uses, has introduced two super-bright, polymer personal lights, the Streamlight PolyTac®, featuring a high-performance Xenon incandescent bulb, and the Streamlight PolyTac® LED with the latest in C4™ power LED technology.   Their compact size, combined with their strong, tough polymer casing and high light output, make both lights perfect for a wide variety of industrial and personal uses.         “These lithium-powered polymer lights are lightweight, while offering exceptional durability and brightness,” said Streamlight Chief Operating Officer Ray Sharrah. “The LED version uses a power LED which provides two to three times the output of Super High Flux LEDs, and the Xenon model offers super-bright light as well.  Whether used to illuminate a shop floor or customer basement, or carried on a tool belt or in a pocket for home or outdoor use, these small but tough tactical lights are ideal professional and personal lights.”         The incandescent Xenon PolyTac offers a light output of 6,000 candela peak beam intensity and 72 lumens measured system output, while the LED model offers 4,800 candela peak beam intensity and 120 lumens measured system output.  The PolyTac model uses a 6-volt xenon bulb, and the LED version features a C4 LED bulb that is impervious to shock with a 50,000 hour lifetime.  The xenon model also offers an adjustable head which allows for variable spot-to-flood focus.           The Xenon version provides 80 minutes of continuous runtime to the 10 % output level, and the LED version offers 3 hours of continuous runtime to the 10% output level.   Both lights weigh only 3.9 oz. and measure 5.22 in. in length and 1.25 in. in diameter.            Both the PolyTac and PolyTac LED feature bodies made of high impact, super tough nylon polymer for exceptional durability and a sure grip.  Each light features a tailcap push button switch for easy, one-handed operation.  The tailcap also can be rotated to a “Safe” position.   Both lights use two 3-volt lithium batteries, which have a shelf life of 10 years.• DIMENSIONS: PolyTac®/PolyTac® LED: • Length: 5.22 in.
