“The new USB HAZ-LO has it all – multiple lighting modes to suit the task at hand, the convenience of USB rechargeability, and Class I, Division 1 safety ratings to ensure that professionals can safely have light where and when they need it,” said Michael F. Dineen, Streamlight vice president, sales and marketing.

The combined spot/flood setting provides 250 lumens with a run time of 7 hours. In spot and flood modes, the run times are 7.5 and 13 hours, respectively.

The USB HAZ-LO headlamp uses a proprietary lithium ion battery that is rechargeable via a micro USB charging port. Red and green LED lights indicate battery-charging status; charge time is approximately 4.5 hours depending on the USB charging source.

The new headlamp features a multi-function, push-button switch that is easy to use even with heavy gloved hands, and a tilting head to prevent neck fatigue. The light is made from tough, thermoplastic construction with an elastomer button, and features unbreakable polycarbonate lenses that are recessed to prevent scratching.

The USB HAZ-LO weighs just 4.1 ounces with the battery and measures 3.25 inches wide. The light includes an adjustable elastic head strap, and also comes with two additional mounting options: a rubber strap and 3M® Dual Lock® reclosable fasteners for use on hard hats.
