Rechargeable, Compact Light Delivers 500 Lumens, and Long Run Time on High

14 May 2020

Streamlight Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting devices, have introduced the MacroStream® USB, a compact, lightweight personal light that provides exceptional performance for its size, delivering 500 lumens, 2 hours of run time on high, and 8 hours on low.



Weighing only 62.4 grams, the MacroStream® USB combines extraordinary brightness and USB rechargeability with features that include a removable, two-way pocket/hat clip; a tail cap switch that provides easy, one-handed operation of the light’s momentary or constant on operation; and high and low beams.

“The MacroStream® USB is small enough for everyday carry, yet packs a punch with its lumen output and convenient USB charging,” said Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael F. Dineen. “It’s the ideal pocket or cap light, whether for patrol duty or tactical maneuvers, outdoor uses, or automotive, industrial, and DIY jobs.”



Measuring 11.4cm the new light includes an 800 mAh lithium ion battery that fully recharges in 4 hours via a USB port, which is housed under a sliding metal sleeve. Including a USB cord and a high-strength lanyard, the MacroStream® USB uses Red and Green LEDs in the tail switch to indicate charging status.

On the high setting, the new light also delivers 2,000 candela over a 90-metre beam distance and on low, the MacroStream® USB offers 50 lumens, 220 candela, and a beam distance of 30 metres. The run time on low is 8 hours.

The new light offers extremely durable, abrasion-resistant construction, featuring a machined aluminum case with a Type II Military Spec anodised finish. The MacroStream® USB is also IPX4-rated for water resistance operation, and is impact resistance-tested to 1 metre.
