Streamlight, a leading provider of high-performance flashlights for automotive repair, industrial safety, fire and rescue, law enforcement professionals, and sporting enthusiasts, announced it has introduced the PolyStylus, an ultra-slim, ultra-tough FiberWrap fiberglass polymer pen light equipped with a high-intensity LED that is available in four LED colors.
“The PolyStylus pen light provides a versatile tool to help with a wide variety of tasks,” said Streamlight chief operating officer Ray Sharrah. “The red or green LEDs, for example, can help preserve night vision for police when on night patrol. The green LED, which doesn’t spook game, also provides an all-purpose light for sporting enthusiasts. Automotive mechanics are able to see under the hood or chassis while making repairs with the white LED, while the red or blue LEDs are useful for identifying trouble spots for close-up work.”
Sharrah added the PolyStylus is a perfect light for industrial safety professionals to identify potential problems on a plant floor, while fire and rescue workers have a versatile light for pinpointing trouble spots as they work to put out fires or render first aid under darkened conditions.
The PolyStylus can be purchased with a single white, green, red, or blue LED, or purchased as a combo pack, featuring a PolyStylus with a white LED module that can be unscrewed and replaced with any of the three included color LEDs modules.
The PolyStylus’ high-intensity, 5-millimeter LED is impervious to shock and boasts a 100,000-hour lifetime. In the white mode, the PolyStylus provides 85 candela peak beam intensity and 9 lumens of measured system output. The blue mode offers 63 candela peak beam intensity and 1.7 lumens of measured system output; the red mode offers 72 candela peak beam intensity and 5.1 lumens of measured system output, and the green mode offers 3.5 lumens of measured system output and 45 candela peak beam intensity. A color-coordinated parabolic reflector produces a concentrated beam with optimum peripheral illumination.
The PolyStylus provides up to 24 continuous hours to the 10-percent lumen output level for the red beam and 48 continuous hours to the 10-percent lumen output level for the white, blue, and green beams. Built for heavy-duty use, the rugged, drop-tested PolyStylus’ light-weight, ultra-tough fiberglass epoxy body resists bending or flexing. The light’s unique non-conductive housing even allows the light to be used safely near electrical circuits.
Weighing a mere 1.4 ounces, including three AAAA-sized alkaline batteries, the PolyStylus measures 6.68 inches in length and features a pocket clip on the end-cap. The light’s tail-switch is designed for one-handed momentary or constant “on” operation. The suggested retail price for the PolyStylus Combo Pack, which includes a white LED PolyStylus and three interchangeable green, red, and blue LED lamp modules, is $35, while the PolyStylus with a single LED in white or any one of the three colors is $25.00. It is backed by Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime warranty.
