TLR-1 HL®, TLR-2 HL® and TLR-2 HL® G Now Each Offer 800 Lumens
Streamlight® Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting and weapon light/laser sighting devices, announced that it increased the light output of the TLR® gun-mounted high lumen (HL) lights, the TLR-1HL and the TLR-2 HLG. Each of the models now delivers 800 lumens of blinding white light.
The upgraded models give tactical users full situational awareness by delivering extreme brightness in a wide beam pattern, similar to that of a flood light. The TLR-2HLG features a 510-530 nanometer green aiming laser, to improve focusing on targets, particularly in daylight. Both models feature strobing capability.
The lightweight, compact lights each feature the latest in LED technology, including a shock-proof C4® LED and a special optic that produces a concentrated beam with optimum peripheral illumination. The upgraded lights also now offer 15,000 candela peak beam intensity over a 245-meter beam distance. Each features a high temperature, shock-mounted, and impact-resistant lens.
The lights can be quickly and safely attached to most weapons, without the need for users to put their hands in front of the muzzle. They mount directly to all MIL-STD-1913 (Picatinny) rails and handguns with Glock-style rails, and offer highly accurate sight repeatability when remounting. A key kit with five interchangeable keys is included with each light to securely fit it to a broad array of weapons. The strobe feature, which can be disabled, is activated with two or more momentary paddle hits.
The TLR-1HL offer 1.75 hours of continuous run time, while the TLR-2 HLG provides 1.50 hours. Both lights use two included 3-volt, CR123A lithium batteries. The TLR-1 HL weighs 4.18 ounces, while the TLR-2HLG weighs 4.78 ounces. Both measure 3.39 inches in length.
All of the models are fabricated from 6000 series machined aluminium, feature impact-resistant construction and have been extensively live-fired tested. The TLR-1 HL is IPX7 rated for waterproof operation to 1 meter for 30 minutes, while the TLR-2HLG offers an IPX4 rated design for water-resistant operation. The lights feature an operating temperature range of -40o F to +120o F.
