Streamlight BearTrap multi-function work light

Streamlight Inc. introduced the BearTrap, a high-power work light that delivers up to 2,000 lumens for automotive and other inspection, identification and repair uses.

Streamlight BearTrapFeaturing both spot and flood beams, the light can rotate 270 degrees in its frame and clamps to virtually any surface or stands on its own for hands-free task illumination. It also features a magnetic base and a hanging hook for additional hands-free lighting options.

“The BearTrap is a technician’s dream work light, offering bright white light in both spot and flood modes and multiple hands-free lighting options for illuminating hard-to-reach places such as under a vehicle or when troubleshooting equipment repairs,” said Michael F. Dineen, Streamlight vice president, sales and marketing. “It adjusts for easy positioning and, with its rubberized construction, it prevents scratches when clamped to surfaces like a car hood. And because it uses a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, the BearTrap also offers extremely low operating costs.”

This new work light provides six output modes, including three spot and three flood settings. The BearTrap’s flood mode fills work areas with soft, bright light, ranging from 2,000 lumens on high with a 2.5-hour run time to 575 lumens on low, with an 8.75-hour run time. In spot mode, the light provides a white concentrated beam for specific task lighting, ranging from 1,000 lumens on high for 4.5 hours to 325 lumens on low for 12.5 hours.

The BearTrap has an easy access, multi-function push-button switch with a battery life indicator. The indicator changes from green to yellow to red and then flashing red when the battery is in need of recharging. The new light uses a 7.26-volt, 5200 mAh lithium-ion battery that can be recharged in 5.5 hours, including when the light is in use.
