Streamlight Inc., a leading manufacturer of high-performance flashlights, has launched the compact Night Com UV flashlight, which features six UV LEDs to provide ultraviolet light for a variety of detection purposes. The versatile new light also provides a white LED for general and distance use.

Offering three separate lighting modes, the lithium battery-powered Night Com UV features a white C4 LED, and a total of six UV LEDs, including three 365 nanometer and three 390 nanometer UV LEDs.

"The Night Com UV is specially designed for professionals, such as police and security officers, automotive technicians and HVAC repairmen, who rely on ultraviolet light for detecting fraudulent documents, checking driver's licenses, or for engine or HVAC leak detection," said Streamlight President and Chief Executive Officer Ray Sharrah. "The light also is equipped with a powerful white LED for general purpose and distance use."

A mode-selection switch lets users easily choose the desired lighting mode, including a high- or low-power white LED setting, or the UV LED setting.  The light also features a "safety" mode that ensures the light cannot be turned on by mistake during transport.

The light's C4 LED has a textured reflector that provides a widespread beam, along with a sharp hotspot for distance use.  It boasts a 50,000-hour lifetime, and offers 115 lumens and 4,200 candela peak beam intensity on the high setting, and 50 lumens and 1,600 candela on the low setting.  On the UV setting, the combined six UV LEDs provide 24 mW measured system output and feature a 100,000 hour lifetime.

On high, the light provides 4.25 continuous hours of run time.  On the low setting, the Night Com UV runs for 13.5 continuous hours, and on the UV setting, for 10 continuous hours. 

Powered by the two included CR123A lithium batteries, the Night Com UV weighs only 5.44 ounces, measures just 5.40 inches in length and features an unbreakable polycarbonate lens. The flashlight also features a casing of machined aluminum with a matte black anodized finish and a non-slip knurled grip.  The light's push-button tailcap switch provides for Momentary On and Hard Click On and Off operation.

The Night Com UV is IPX4-rated for water-resistant operation and is impact resistance-tested to one meter.  All openings are o-ring sealed.  It has an MSRP of $90.00. The light comes with a high-strength wrist lanyard and Streamlight's Limited Lifetime Warranty.

There’s less training conducted with the defensive shotgun than with any other defensive firearm. This is partly because shotguns recoil the hardest, and recoil is not something shooters typically enjoy. It’s also partly because shotguns—at least compared with handguns and carbines—are a bit expensive to shoot, especially if you’re training with 00 buckshot.
