Streamlight has released a new addition to the Streamlight Strion series, the Strion 2020. The Strion are their duty-ready flashlights, and the 2020 is promising some pretty hefty lumen counts. It comes with functioning head and tail switches and an easy-to-use mode select switch, and it is compatible with existing Strion chargers. Here’s what Streamlight had to say about the release:
Streamlight®, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting, introduced the Streamlight Strion 2020, the latest in its line of duty-ready work lights for police, military, and first responders. The ultra-bright rechargeable Strion delivers up to 1,200 lumens and 28,000 candela and features both head and tail push-button on/off switches, an easy-to-use mode select switch for choosing light intensities, and a convenient battery status indicator.
Positioned in line with the head switch, the thumb-accessible, three-position mode selector allows for easy toggling through the light’s high, medium, or low outputs. The head and tail switch both offer full control independent of one another and provide one-handed operation of the light’s momentary, constant on or strobe modes. Also located in the head switch is a battery status indicator that displays green when charged and red when the light needs to be charged.
“Streamlight developed the super-bright Strion 2020 to provide first responders with a powerful tactical tool for use during search, investigative, and emergency situations,” said Michael F. Dineen, Streamlight’s Chief Revenue Officer. “Law enforcement, tactical professionals, military personnel, and others can choose between two switches, depending on need or personal preference. We’ve also added convenient features such as a mode select switch so you don’t have to cycle between modes and an indicator light to check battery status at a glance.”
Powered by a 3.6V, 3450mAh lithium-ion battery, the new light uses a high-power LED to deliver 1,200 lumens, 28,000 candela, a 335-meter beam distance, and a run time of 1 hour and 45 minutes on high. On medium, the light offers 460 lumens, 10,000 candela, a 200-meter beam distance and a 5.5 hour run time. On low, the Strion 2020 provides an extended 12 hours of run time, 120 lumens and 3,000 candela over a 110-meter beam distance. The light’s high-intensity strobe runs for 3.5 continuous hours.
The lithium-ion battery can be charged with any existing Strion® charger. The battery, which can be recharged up to 1,000 times, fully recharges in 4.5 hours; the charging base indicator will go from steady to blinking when fully charged.
The Strion 2020 features a high-efficiency TIR optic that is impact- and chemical-resistant and an LED that is impervious to shock with a 50,000-hour lifetime. The light is fabricated from 6000 series machined aircraft aluminum with anodized finish. Its anti-roll design ensures the light does not move when placed on a flat surface.
Measuring 6.33 inches in length, the light weighs 5.7 ounces with its included battery. Featuring an IPX7-rated design for waterproof operation to 1 meter, it is also two-meter impact resistance tested. Available in black, the Strion 2020 has an MSRP ranging from $217.59 to $351.31, depending on the model, and includes Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.
