New Streamlight Clipmate USB

    Streamlight is introducing a new light for police use as well as campers hunters and others in need of handy small light.

    The Clipmate has a strong clip on the back that can be attached to a pocket, belt, cap brim and many other places. The Clipmate uses two C4 white LEDs with 70 lumens on high and a 3.5 hour runtime. The low setting has an output of 10 lumens for 24 hours. In addition there is one red LED to preserve night vision. The output is 0.5 lumens for a runtime of 16 hours. The low setting of 0.2 lumens runs for 65 hours.

    The battery is rechargeable with a built in limiter to prevent overcharging. Charging is done via a USB port in a car, laptop or other device such as an IPad. A charger is also included.

    Size is 3.9 inches and weighs 1.9 ounces. The light is mounted to a pvc coated cable “neck” to target the beam where it’s needed. I was really impressed with the brightness of the light as well as the runtime especially on lower setting in white or red.

    The Clipmate USB is water resistant to 1 meter. It’s also impact resistant.

    This is just a very handy light with an MSRP of $55.00. I ordered one for myself to use as a barrel light as well as the several other examples I listed above.
