Streamlight’s new ProTac 90 is a 300 lumen, right angle tactical light with multi-fuel technology. The big news here is that you can use CR123 Lithium batteries for performance or AA Lithium or AA Alkaline when the availability of cost is an issue. Perfect for a firefighter’s turnouts or a soccer mom’s bug out bag, the ProTac does it all.
I have traveled all over the world. I have never been in a country that didn’t have AA batteries. Even closer to home, the neighborhood stop and rob will 100% of the time have AAs. No so much with CR123’s, and when you find them in a store they can be pricey.
The light adjusts itself using a combination of trapdoors, springs and sorcery. All you need to do is put a battery in, the light adapts itself with no effort on your part. If you can put the positive end in first, you can have illumination.
Encased in a virtually indestructible aluminum housing, it’s got a 90-degree head and a multi-function clip designed to fit Molle and other gear. It measures just 3.75 inches and delivers 300 lumens.
The ProTac 90 is super bright, it is so bright that they built a triple click dimmer feature to use the light for up close work that requires less light or situations where battery life needs conservation.
Clip this super bright, compact right-angle flashlight to turnouts, tactical vest, uniform pocket or gear strap—for focused hands-free lighting. The L-shape allows one-handed operation, even with gloved hands. ProTac 90 offers a comfortable, sure grip for any size hand, and convenient operation for fire, rescue, tactical or roadside repairs in the rain.
Advanced Streamlight LED technology delivers 300 lumens of piercing white light for 1.75 hours continuous regulated run time at over 90% of full brightness on High. At just over 3 3/4” long, and 3 oz. with the CR123, the powerful ProTac90 produces a smoke-cutting central beam with optimum peripheral illumination for easier navigation and improved situational awareness.
On Low, it provides a very useful 40 lumens of light for up to 14 hours of continuous run time. It can produce a visible life-saving warning signal in strobe mode for 2.5 hours.
The TEN-TAP switch cycles between three modes: High Beam, Strobe, Low Beam.
