Streamlight has a new, brighter compact weapon light. The TLR-7 HL-X USB packs 1,000 lumens and 22,000 candela into a small package. It also can run on multiple power sources.

Weapon Lights @ TFB:

The TLR-7 HL-X USB can use the SL-B9 rechargeable battery for maximum output. It can also program down to 500 lumens and 11,000 candela for longer runtime of one hour, and charges with a standard USB-C cable. Charging takes up to 2.5 hours. The other option is a standard CR-123A battery which also puts out 500 lumens and 11,000 candela. Runtime is extended to 1.5 hours with the CR-123A.

Apart from selecting the type of power source, users can also select between two switch options. The switches provide momentary and constant-on modes. Streamlight provides both high and low switches to switch user preferences. Streamlight also lists compatibility with many popular models from manufacturers like Glock, Smith & Wesson, FN, Beretta, SIG Sauer, HK, and CZ.

The body of the TLR-7 HL-X USB is made from 6000-series aluminum with an anodized finish. Black and FDE finishes are both available. It also has an IPX-7 water resistance rating. They are starting to show up at retailers now with retail prices around $165.


Width: 1.18 in (2.98 cm)

Height: 1.27 in (3.23 cm)

Length: 2.90 in (7.37 cm)


SL-B9®: 2.88 oz (81.6 g) with battery

CR123A: 2.80 oz (79.4 g) with battery

From the manufacturer:

The TLR-7® HL-X USB high-lumen, multi-fuel, rail-mounted light is engineered to produce a longer reaching, tighter beam. It accepts either Streamlight’s SL-B9® USB-C rechargeable protected lithium-ion battery pack or a single CR123A lithium battery. Interchangeable rear paddle switches accommodate your shooting style.

    at least you can use it with a battery instead of a lithium pack that will definitely be dead when you need it

    I don't know that I've seen anyone with those lithium rechargeables in stock...

      @aerodawg Pretty sure they're 16340. The SL-B26 is an 18650.
