Streamlight' Inc. also launches the The QB® headlamp: an ultra-lightweight, weather resistant, personal work light, featuring a large button for easy actuation. It has a polymer rechargeable battery, a handy hat clip built right into the saddle, to clip the light on the brim of a baseball cap for added versatility. The adjustable nylon headband has a non-slip inner surface to allow for easy hard hat mounting. When you need to see what's up ahead, this small but powerful QB® headlamp is the hands-free lighting that goes the distance. The QB® headlamp is a lightweight headlamp that is big on power and USB rechargeable, shining 200 lumens of light to 85 metres.
Also, there's the introduction of the SIEGE? X USB: a multifunction, ultra-compact USB rechargeable lantern and flashlight that works in all settings. It features multiple lighting modes, including smooth lantern lighting, a red LED setting to preserve night vision and a front spot light to use the lantern as a handheld flashlight.
