Streamlight has developed three series of lights–Tradition, High Lumen and High Performance, High Lumen–to ensure you have the right flashlight for your lighting needs.

Having the right flashlight that meets your lighting needs is important. That's one of the reasons Streamlight developed three series of lights:

  • Tradition Series
  • High Lumen (HL) Series
  • High Performance, High Lumen (HPL) Series

Each series offers a different balance of features and can be used for a variety of applications.

In addition to the information on this page, Streamlight has an interactive, online beam demonstration to help you determine the right light for you.

Streamlight understands it can sometimes be difficult to determine which lights work best for a variety of applications. When choosing a flashlight, keep the following in mind:

  • Tradition Series: Meant for general, multi-purpose use, these lights are designed for the broadest range of lighting applications at the best value.

High Lumen (HL): Gives you maximum illumination, providing full situational awareness by delivering extraordinary brightness in a wide beam pattern. These lights are ideal for smaller areas where you need a lot of light, but not an exceptionally long reach.

High Performance, High Lumen (HPL): A good choice for down-range applications requiring optimal beam distance, as these flashlights throw light a long distance and feature an enhanced lumen output.

Introducing Streamlight® Ultraviolet Flashlights

Streamlight® Ultraviolet Flashlights: Ultra-Effective at Detecting Counterfeit Documents

Streamlight has a number of ultraviolet (UV) flashlights that are essential tools in the fight against terrorism, fraud and forgery. These powerful, reliable UV lights can help you detect counterfeit documents in a flash.

Finding the Fakes, Frauds & Forgers

As forgers and counterfeiters become more sophisticated, officials are finding ways to create fraudulent-resistant documents. One of the most effective methods is to imprint hidden ink that is extremely difficult to reproduce and is only detectable by using ultraviolet light.

Most states already incorporate such images in their driver's licenses. They are also used on credit cards, vehicle registration cards, currencies, checks and other important documents.

When you shine a Streamlight UV flashlight on a document with hidden graphics, you'll see the "invisible" graphics. If no image appears, you will know instantly that the document is fraudulent.

An Important Forensic Tool

Streamlight ultraviolet lights are also used by medical examiners to quickly detect the presence of proteins at crime scenes.

The UV Lights of Choice

Streamlight UV flashlights are essential tools in the fight against terrorism, fraud and forgery. They offer four models with ultraviolet capabilities: Twin-Task® 3C UV, Stylus® UV, Night Com® UV and Multi Ops®.
