Streamlight Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting and weapon light/laser sighting devices, introduced the TLR-7 X USB/TLR-7 X, compact weapon lights featuring multi-fuel capability with USB or disposable battery options, while delivering 500 lumens for extreme brightness in tactical situations. The lightweight lights, designed to fit full-size and compact handguns with rails, also offer customizable rear paddle switches featuring a low or high position to match users’ shooting styles.
“Like other models in the TLR line, the TLR-7 X USB/TLR-7 X are designed to maximize visibility and targeting capability in a variety of home defense and tactical applications,” said Streamlight President and Chief Executive Officer Ray Sharrah. “These newest models are also ‘multi-fuel,’ giving users the choice of using either a cost-saving SL-B9 USB-C rechargeable battery pack or a 3-volt CR123A lithium battery, depending on availability or user preference.”
The TLR-7 X USB/TLR-7 X feature a white power LED that delivers 5,000 candela and 500 lumens over a beam distance of 140 meters. Their custom TIR optic produces a concentrated beam while also optimizing peripheral illumination. They offer two lighting modes, LED only or LED strobe, and a runtime of 1 hour with the SL-B9 Li-Ion 850mAh USB-C rechargeable pack or 1.5 hours when using a CR123A battery. The SL-B9 battery pack charges within 2.5 hours via a USB-C port on the battery or optional bank charger.
Securely fitting to a broad range of weapons, the new TLR-7 X USB/TLR-7 X feature a one-handed, snap on and tighten interface that keeps hands away from gun muzzles when attaching or detaching them. The lights also include a “safe-off” feature, locking it so it cannot be turned on accidentally. A key kit is included to securely fit the lights to the broadest array of handguns of any light on the market.
Constructed with 6000 Series machined aircraft aluminum with an anodized finish, the TLR-7 X models weigh 2.48 ounces with a disposable battery and 2.64 ounces with the SL-B9 battery pack. They measure 2.58 inches in length.
With extensively live-fire tested, impact-resistant construction, the new models feature an IPX7-rated design, making them waterproof to 1 meter for 30 minutes.
The new lights are packaged with a high switch mounted on the light plus an included low switch and are available in Black or Flat Dark Earth. The TLR-7 X USB, which comes with one SL-B9 battery pack and a USB-C cable, has an MSRP of $265.66. The TLR-7 X, packaged with one CR123A battery, has an MSRP of $253.66. The FDE models have MSRPs that range from $266.29 to $278.29. Each light is covered by Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.
