A High Output LED Flashlight

The Streamlight ProTac™ HL is a high power LED flashlight for its size. Its power comes from the flashlight’s innovative C4® LED technology, which utilizes uses the C4® Photonic Crystal technology, combined with Streamlight’s engineered reflector and proprietary Micro Optical System (MOS) for optimized output and run time. The C4® technology almost triples the brightness compared to basic LEDs and creates an intense beam that pierces the darkness. So you get the long-run times and indestructibility of an LED with a new level of brightness that leaves other LEDs in the dark. C4® approximates the range and brightness of a xenon bulb. This technology gives the ProTac™ HL a high lumen output of 600 lumens and 16,000 candela peak beam intensity. This high luminosity makes the ProTac HL one of the brightest LED flashlights available. Designed for maximum illumination applications, the flashlight is Streamlight’s first programmable, handheld, lithium battery-powered light. In addition to its high lumen light and candela output, the ProTac HL has a run time of one hour and 15 minutes and a beam distance of 253 meters on the high setting. On the low setting, the flashlight delivers 33 lumens and 800 candelas to a beam distance of 57 meters, and 18 hours of runtime. The strobe setting provides 2.5 hours of continuous run time.

Operating Modes

The Advantages of an LED Flashlight

An LED flashlight is ideal for a light that gets used on a daily basis. You don’t have to worry about breaking the light, since there is no glass or filament, and you rarely have to replace LEDs because they can last a lifetime. The low power usage of the LED technology also means that your battery power will last much longer than with a regular flashlight bulb.
