A History of Performance

American-based company Streamlight has been lighting up the world for over 45 years.

Streamlight a leading provider of high-performance lighting devices offering a range of high-quality portable lighting tools especially for law enforcement, military and sporting goods.

From the very beginning Streamlight has been defined by its innovation. The company has delivered effective, efficient, high performance lighting solutions featuring the latest technology, performance, durability and value. Streamlight earned its reputation one customer at a time. Listening to its customers is a key feature that reflects many decades of invaluable insight and understanding; this approach led to new ideas and the ‘Brilliant Thinking’ that sets Streamlight apart. Knowledge and experience combined with their technical capabilities have allowed them to consistently lead the industry.

When the company launched in 1973, Streamlight set a new standard for the lighting industry with the development of the first million candlepower handheld light for NASA. Then, in 2000 Streamlight did it again with the introduction of the rechargeable Stinger. Its combination of size, performance and durability made it the first choice of law enforcement professionals the world over. Today, Streamlight has an impressive range of portable lighting tools.

“We have been raising the bar ever since,” says Streamlight President and CEO, Ray Sharrah. “Streamlight is a pioneer in rechargeable flashlight and we are revolutionising LED lights, making them brighter, more compact and incredibly durable.

“We have extended the run times and are continually coming up with dramatic new ways to make our customers jobs easier and safer.”

Streamlight says that it is leading the industry with the greatest variety of professional grade lights.

The lights are available in many configurations and are supported by a range of accessories, delivering the right light exactly where it is needed. Streamlight offer a full range of weapon lights, with features and performance levels that meet the needs of the military, law enforcement, concealed carry, as well as the sportsman. From high lumen to laser, to infrared.

For the military special forces, Streamlight’s high performance lights, lanterns and weapon light/laser sighting devices are engineered and manufactured so that the same piece of gear can be used for everything from pinpointing to targeting. By consolidating features into a simple platform Streamlight is able to deliver products like the Sidewinder, which enables operators to carry less gear and fewer batteries.

The following are some of the newest trends in flashlight technology for law enforcement and special forces personnel to consider:

· USB rechargeable products that let you charge on the go from almost any USB power source. First responders can simply connect to USB port, AC wall adaptor or use a USB charger that plugs into a patrol vehicle’s on-board USB port.

· Streamlight, 18650 USB lithium ion battery with an integrated micro USB charging port. This battery re-invents rechargeability by letting users charge the battery outside of the flashlight, eliminating the need for a separate charger base. It also transforms multi-fuel, high-performance lighting tools into rechargeable systems, providing an alternative to disposable CR123A batteries.

· Flashlights that are multiple fuel or accept multi types of batteries are also a growing trend, offering the convenience of using either lithium or alkaline batteries, depending on availability or preference.
