Streamlight Puts the Spotlight on New TLR-7 HL-X USB Multi-Fuel Rail-Mounted Light

Streamlight isn’t about to leave shooters in the dark. That point is very clear and as bright as can be, as it announced the release of its TLR-7 HL-X USB, a 1,000-lumen, multi-fuel, rail-mounted light. It offers a longer-reaching beam that provides up to 22,000 candela, more than double the beam distance of previous TLR-7 models.

The new light was designed to maximize visibility and targeting capability in a variety of home defense and tactical applications. It features a white power LED and a custom TIR optic that produces a concentrated beam while further optimizing peripheral illumination.

It is noted for providing users the choice of using either a SL-B9 USB-C rechargeable battery pack or a 3-volt CR123A lithium battery, depending on availability and user preference. The protected lithium-ion 850mAh USB-C rechargeable battery pack is rechargeable for up to 500 cycles and charges within 2.5 hours via a USB-C port on the battery or optional bank charger.

When using a Streamlight SL-B9 battery, the rail-mounted light can deliver 1,000 lumens, 22,000 candelas, a beam distance of 297 meters, and a run time of 30 minutes on default, or 500 lumens, 11,000 candelas, a beam distance of 210 meters, and a run time of 1 hour (programmable).

With a CR123A battery inserted, the light provides 500 lumens, 11,000 candela, a beam distance of 210 meters, and a run time of 1.5 continuous hours.

In addition to its versatility, the TLR-7 HL-X USB comes in a small package, designed to fit full-size and compact handguns with rails using a provided key kit, while it features a one-handed, snap-on and tighten interface that keeps hands away from gun muzzles when attaching or detaching them. The light also includes a “safe-off” feature, locking it so it cannot be turned on accidentally, and its customizable rear paddle switches offer a low or high position to match a user’s shooting style.

Constructed with 6000 Series machined aircraft aluminum with an anodized finish, the TLR-7 HL-X USB weighs in at just 2.88 ounces with the SL-B9 battery pack and 2.80 ounces with a disposable battery. The light measures 2.90 inches in length. It features an impact-resistant construction and an IPX7-rated design that ensures it is waterproof to one meter for up to 30 minutes.

“This latest addition to the TLR-7 line is a high-lumen light that is engineered to produce a far-reaching, tighter beam, which helps put more light on a target at a distance,” explained Streamlight President and Chief Executive Officer Ray Sharrah. “Whether conducting room clearing, search operations, or other maneuvers under low-light conditions, the TLR-7 HL-X USB gives law enforcement professionals, military personnel, and other first responders sweeping bright light, while also delivering an intense down-range beam. And with its multi-fuel design, users can select the battery option that best suits the situation at hand.”
