Streamlight, known for its tactical flashlights, firearm mounted accessory lights, work lights, emergency lights and other portable lighting products has just launched a new iteration of its TLR-7 compact pistol light, the new Streamlight TLR 7 HLX USB Multi-Fuel variant.

Like all other Streamlight TLR 7 lights, the new HLX USB Multi-Fuel variant is compact and designed to fit on the accessory rails of modern compact handguns such as the Glock G19, SIG Sauer P365 X Macro and Smith and Wesson M&P 2.0 Compact, to name a few. This new version comes equipped with Streamlight’s SL-B9 USB-C rechargeable batteries, which have batteries have a USB-C slot on the end and can be removed from the TLR 7 HLX and charged separately. For added convenience, users can run the light off of a single standard 3 volt CR 123A battery instead of the rechargeable battery.

“This latest addition to the TLR-7 line is a high lumen light that is engineered to produce a far-reaching, tighter beam, which helps put more light on a target at a distance,” said Streamlight President and Chief Executive Officer Ray Sharrah. “Whether conducting room clearing, search operations or other maneuvers under low-light conditions, the TLR-7 HL-X USB gives law enforcement professionals, military personnel and other first responders sweeping bright light, while also delivering an intense down-range beam. And with its multi-fuel design, users can select the battery option that best suits the situation at hand.”

The TLR-7 HL-X USB features a white power LED and a custom TIR optic that produces a concentrated beam while also optimizing peripheral illumination. It delivers 1,000 lumens, 22,000 candela, a beam distance of 297 meters and a run time of 30 minutes (default) or 500 lumens, 11,000 candela, a beam distance of 210 meters, and a run time of 1 hour (programmable) when using a Streamlight SL-B9 battery. The protected lithium-ion 850mAh USB-C rechargeable battery pack is rechargeable up to 500 cycles and charges within 2.5 hours via a USB-C port on the battery or optional bank charger.
