EAGLEVILLE, PA, June 14, 2012– Streamlight®, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance flashlights, has introduced a new version of its super-bright, rechargeable HID LiteBox® searchlight, featuring a heavy-duty 12-volt DC power cord that can be connected to the lantern to provide continuous operation.
The portable lantern features High Intensity Discharge technology, providing professional and consumer users with an ultra-bright light that can illuminate objects more than one mile away with its long-range beam. The new model gives users the flexibility of using the lantern as a corded light, by plugging the included remote power cord into a DC power source.
“This new version of our HID LiteBox ensures that first responders, industrial and utility workers or military personnel don’t have to worry about running out of light when illuminating, for example, a fire or accident, a job scene, or when on maneuvers,” said Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael F. Dineen. “The lantern is also portable, so if users need to relocate, they can simply disconnect the power cord and carry it with them to light their way,” he said.
The lantern combines a 35-watt high intensity discharge Xenon lamp with Streamlight’s deep-dish parabolic reflector technology to deliver 3,350 lumens and one million candela peak beam intensity. The searchlight produces a long-range, high intensity focused beam that is ideal for search and rescue operations and illuminating public areas, roadways, or accident scenes. The lantern’s 90-degree swivel neck allows users to aim the beam precisely where it is needed for optimized task lighting.
The lantern includes a 10-foot cord that can be plugged into a 12-volt DC power source. The zero-maintenance 12-volt, 7.2 Amp/hour sealed lead acid rechargeable battery is rechargeable up to 500 times, and operates the HID lamp for up to 1.75 hours per charge. The lantern will run indefinitely when using the power cord, while continuously charging the light’s battery.
The HID LiteBox measures 14.9 inches in length and weighs 10.1 pounds. Other features include:
The HID LiteBox has an MSRP of $859 and comes with Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.
