Pennsylvania based Streamlight, Inc. recently unveiled a new version of their popular Clipmate series with an innovative new feature not typically found in other pocket sized lights. The Clipmate USB takes a new approach to rechargeable flashlights with an integrated USB cord that serves as the primary method of charging. This integrated USB cord prevents any tedious search for an outlet when you’re away from home, and there is no extra hardware to keep track of like cords or charging bases. The new Clipmate series will make on the go charging a snap via your laptop, USB compatible lantern, or even a USB car charger, and the device fully recharges in 2.5 hours. What if there is no USB around? No sweat, the Clipmate also comes with a traditional AC charger if you need a backup plan.
True to it’s name, the Clipmate USB features a unbreakable pocket clip that attaches to your shirt, pack, or other adjacent surfaces, and since the device only weighs 1.9oz, you’ll hardly notice it is there. Similar to Streamlight’s popular Stylus Pro Reach series, the Clipmate also sports an adjustable polyethylene-coated extension cable so you can direct light to where you need it the most without needing to move the base. The Clipmate USB offers both white and red LED settings, and the device can run on high power white LED for 3.5 hours or high power red LED for 16 hours.
The Clipmate USB is sure to be a favorite with law enforcement and security personnel, but we see the device best used around the campsite or on the job as a excellent alternative to a headlamp. Check out all the great Streamlight products right now at Webyshops.com.
