Streamlight flashlight Poly Tac HP

The PolyTac HP delivers bright light with a 275m beam distance for down-range illumination. It features a superior grip texture for a comfortable but slip-resistant feel, as well as TEN-TAP® Programming that gives users the choice of three operating modes.

  • C4® LED technology within a deep reflector provides far-reaching targeting beam with a tight spotlight and optimum peripheral illumination
  • TEN-TAP® Programming: Choice of three operating modes:
    • high/strobe/low (factory default);
    • high only;
    • low/high:
    • High for a super-bright, far-reaching beam: 275 lumens; 19,000 candela; 275m beam distance; runs 3 hours
    • Low for when less light is needed and for longer run times: 14 lumens; 1,000 candela; runs 56 hours
    • Strobe runs 5.5 hours
  • Solid State power regulation provides maximum light output throughout battery life
  • Deep reflector produces 275m beam - ideal for lighting the way to the end of a dark alley, down a wooded path, inspecting utility lines from the ground, or search and rescue missions
  • High-impact, super-tough nylon polymer for exceptional durability and a superior grip texture to provide a comfortable but slip resistant feel
  • IPX7 rated design; waterproof to 1 meter for 30 minutes
  • Powered by two 3V CR123A lithium batteries
