Cyclops introduces the new REVO 700 and REVO 900 lumen rechargeable hand-held lights.
The REVO series feature two Hi-Power Luxeon M LED lights in the 900 and one Hi-Power Luxeon M LED light in the 700, both providing the ultimate in brightness and range. The REVO 700 and 900 are powered by a 6V 2.5Ah SLA battery and include a home and car charger so you never have to worry about losing power.
Both models have ergonomically designed rubberized grips with a trigger pulse switch that also features an Always ‘on’ lock switch. These durable, yet affordable, hand-held lights have vented housing that helps reduce heat.
REVO 700 Features: Hi-Power Luxeon M LED, vented housing, home and car charger included, ergonomically designed rubberized grip w/trigger pulse switch, always ON lock switch, burn time: 110 minutes, light output: 700 lumens. MSRP $99.99

TerraLUX introduces a new line of hard-use tactical flashlights designed to meet the rigorous demands of law enforcement, military and personal defense needs.
These rugged, reliable lights are built to exacting standards. Leading the way is the TT-5, a 650 ANSI lumen powerhouse with three output settings, a dedicated strobe switch and 2.5 hours of full-power run time. TerraLUX’s Optimized Digital Control technology delivers up to 43 percent longer run times and 30 percent more lumen output.
The TT-line of lights features a unique design that allows the user to access a separate, dedicated strobe switch. This ergonomically designed button allows the strobe to be quickly deployed in a dynamic critical incident, when time and fine motor skills are at a minimum. The disorientation from the variable- frequency strobe can buy users the critical seconds necessary to get away from an attacker.
CNC-machined from aircraft-grade 6061 aluminum, the TT-5 sports a Type III hard-coat anodize for long-lasting protection. Built to the demanding needs of military and law enforcement users, the TT-5 is designed for hard-use and always-ready durability.
“We’ve put everything we know about LED durability and power output into the TT line,” said Wade Stevens, TerraLUX vice president of sales. “This is the most complete tactical flashlight on the market.”
Unlike other manufacturers who anodize their light bodies before cutting threads, TerraLUX anodizes their light bodies after threads are cut. This additional step reduces thread fouling, environmental damage and battery discharge.
TerraLUX also features a double spring battery system. Where most companies use a single spring in the tail cap, TerraLUX installs a second spring in the light head, ensuring maximum contact with the battery and reduced chances of failure.
“We’ve built these lights to withstand almost anything you can throw at them,” Stevens said. “When personal safety is at stake, be it a police officer on the street or a mother in her driveway, these lights have to work.”
In addition to durable bodies, TerraLUX uses lenses made from tempered glass, not a composite that is more prone to scratching or damage.
Some other features of the TT-5:
High power – 650 lumens for 2.7 hours of runtime
Medium – 150 lumens for 7.3 hours
Low – 10 lumens 295 hours
Strobe – 650 lumens 4.4 hours
IPx8 water-proof for 4 hours at 2 meters depth; tempered glass lens with precision micro-textured reflector; removable crenelated strike bezel and grip ring; multi-function dual switch tail-cap with direct strobe access for single-hand operation; impact tested to 1.5 meters.
Streamlight Stinger Classic LED
is introducing the Stinger Classic LED, a rechargeable flashlight similar in size, shape and feel to the original Xenon Stinger but with a powerful LED.
“The Stinger Classic LED is an update to the standard flashlight used by law enforcement and other professionals the world over,” said Ray Sharrah, Streamlight President and Chief Executive Officer. “It was designed in response to customers who appreciate the compact size and simpler functionality of the original Xenon Stinger model, but who also want the advantages of the latest in LED technology.”
The updated model offers three microprocessor-controlled variable intensity modes and a strobe function. It delivers 390 lumens and 13,200 candela peak beam intensity on the high setting, 210 lumens and 6,500 candela on medium, and 100 lumens and 3,100 candela on low. Run times range from 6 hours and 45 minutes on low to 1 hour and 45 minutes on high.
The Stinger Classic LED features a C4 LED for extreme brightness that is impervious to shock with a 50,000 hour lifetime. The light’s custom optic design provides a smooth beam with optimal peripheral illumination.
The new light is available with either a 3-cell, 3.6 volt Ni-Cd or Ni-MH sub-C battery, both of which are rechargeable up to 1,000 times. Fabricated from 6000 series machined aircraft aluminum with an anodized finish, the Stinger Classic LED also includes a multi-function, push-button switch, designed for extremely long life.
The new light measures 7.65 inches in length and weighs only 11.1 ounces. It fits all existing Stinger series charger-holders. The available steady charger fully recharges in 10 hours on 100 volt, 120 volt, 230 volt, or 240 volt AC or 12 volt DC. A 2.5 hour fast charger and a PiggyBack charger that allows for simultaneous charging of both the light and battery also are available.
The Stinger Classic LED is IPX4 rated for water-resistant operation and is impact resistance-tested to up one meter.
Available in black, the new light has an MSRP of $205 and comes with Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.
