The ProTac 2AA-X USB not only is USB-C rechargeable, but also more than doubles the lumen and candela output of its predecessor, said Streamlight Chief Revenue Officer Michael F. Dineen. It gives users the choice of using either a cost-saving USB-C rechargeable battery pack or alkaline batteries, depending on availability or user preference, said Dineen. About the size of a marker, it’s the perfect EDC light for a variety of operating needs.

The multi-fuel ProTac 2AA-X USB uses a 1600mAh Streamlight protected lithium polymer USB-C rechargeable battery pack that is rechargeable up to 500 times. The battery charges in approximately four hours via a USB-C port on the side. The light can also accept two AA alkaline batteries.

The new model features a multi-function, push-button tail switch that permits one-handed operation of the light’s momentary, variable intensity or strobe modes. The light’s TEN-TAP programmable switch allows for user selection of one of three different programs: high/strobe/low (factory default), high only, or low/high.

The ProTac 2AA-X USB uses a power LED that on the High setting delivers 550 lumens and 10,250 candela, a beam distance of 203 metres and a 2.25-hour run time when using the rechargeable battery pack. With alkaline batteries inserted, it offers 270 lumens, 5,000 candela, a 141-metre beam distance and a 2.5-hour run time. On Low, run times range from 16 hours with the rechargeable battery to 48 hours with AA batteries. Strobe run time is 4.5 hours with the lithium polymer battery and 5 hours using disposable batteries.

Constructed with 6000 Series machined aircraft aluminium with an anodised finish, the ProTac 2AA-X USB features a gasket-sealed glass lens and an anti-roll face cap. The light weighs 99 grams using either battery type, and measures 15.3cm long with a body diameter of 1.7cm.

The new model features an IPX7-rated design, making it waterproof to 1 metre. It is also 2-metre impact resistance tested.
