Streamlight announced they are now shipping the ProTac HL USB flashlight. These hand held lights are rechargeable via a micro USB port on the body of the light.
The lights are fairly bright: 800 lumens and 10,000 candela at the top end. On high, the lights are rated for 1.5 hours. Lower output levels increase run time to 12 hours.
These flashlights will run on the included Li-ion battery pack or commercially available 18650 rechargeable batteries. The lights will also run on CR123a batteries.
Streamlight states the lights are water and impact resistant. The MSRP runs from $180 – $200. With Streamlight, I’ve noticed that street prices are much lower that retail.
