Streamlight® Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting tools, introduced the Streamlight® 18650 Battery Bank Charger, designed to help first responders, industrial technicians and other users maintain and charge up to eight Streamlight® 18650 USB rechargeable lithium ion batteries.
The new Bank Charger features an eight-bay design, allowing users to charge up to eight 2600 mAh Streamlight 18650 USB batteries in 5.25 hours. Each bay features an LED display above the battery slot to indicate charge status: red for charging and green for fully charged. The charger securely holds each battery in place, and its low-profile design makes it ideal for mounting in trucks and other service vehicles.
The micro-USB battery provides an economic alternative to disposable CR123 cells for the growing line of Streamlight flashlights that are designed to accept both battery types, including the ProTac® HL-X USB; the ProTac® Rail Mount HL-X Laser; the ProTac® 2L-X USB; the ProTac HL® 5-X USB; the PolyTac® X USB; the Vantage® 180 X USB and the Siege® X USB. The new Battery Bank Charger helps reduce downtime on the job by ensuring that users always have fully recharged 18650 USB batteries at the ready.
“We introduced this Bank Charger to give fire and law enforcement agencies, industrial technicians and other professional users a way to conveniently organize, store and charge the Streamlight 18650 USB battery, which can be used to power some of our most popular new flashlights,” said Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael F. Dineen. “Now users can charge up to eight of these batteries at a time, and also have a place to store them for later use.”
