Streamlight’s New ProTac 90X USB Right-Angle Flashlight
Terry Nelson 08.03.20
I have long been a fan of Streamlight products and carry their ProTac 2L flashlight on a daily basis. If you are an outdoorsman, a prepper, or just defensive-minded, a good flashlight is a must. Now Streamlight has introduced the ProTac 90X USB, a multi-fuel right-angle light that offers up to 1,000 lumens and features a 90° head for multiple lighting needs.
This latest addition to the ProTac® series of tactical lights is a complete rechargeable system that includes a Streamlight SL-B26™ protected Li-Ion USB rechargeable battery pack with an integrated micro-USB port and a charging cord. A ProTac® 90X with two CR123A batteries also is available. This multi-fuel capability enables users to charge the light or insert cell batteries when a charging source is unavailable.
“The combination of its 90° head, powerful light output and multiple attachment methods battery make the ProTac 90X USB our brightest and most versatile everyday carry light available,” said Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael F. Dineen. “Its multi-fuel battery technology gives users the ability to power and recharge through convenient USB recharging or via disposable batteries, making it the ideal choice for tactical, first responder, outdoor and other users when conducting maneuvers or search operations, or performing other tasks under low light conditions.”
The versatile new light can be used either as a handheld or attached to MOLLE, belts, harnesses, and other gear for hands-free use. When using the SL-B26 USB LI-Ion battery pack, the ProTac 90X USB delivers 1,000 lumens and runs for one hour, 45 minutes on high. When using CR123A batteries it provides 1,000 lumens and a run time of two hours, 30 minutes on the high setting.
The ProTac 90X features a multi-function pushbutton switch and the body is made of 6000 series machined aluminum with a Type II MIL-Spec anodized finish. Measuring just 4.39 inches long, the ProTac 90X USB weighs 4.9 ounces with the included Streamlight USB Li-Ion battery, while the ProTac 90X model weighs 4.4 ounces with two included CR123A batteries.
The light features an IPX7-rated design that makes it waterproof to one meter for 30 minutes. It also is impact-resistant tested to 2 meters, making this light an excellent choice for any rough duty tasks.
Available in black, the ProTac 90X USB and ProTac 90X have MSRPs of $115.00 and $100.00, respectively. Both come with Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime Warranty. Check Streamlight out along with all of their product offerings at www.streamlight.com
