The new Streamlight MacroStream USB, a compact, lightweight personal light that provides exceptional performance for its size, was introduced on the SHOT Show floor. It delivers 500 lumens and 2 hours of run time on high, 8 hours on low.

Weighing only 2.2 ounces, the Streamlight MacroStream USB combines extraordinary brightness and USB rechargeability with features that include a removable, two-way pocket/hat clip;a tail cap switch that provides easy, one-handed operation of the light’s momentary or constant on operation; and high and low beams.

Special Notice: The SHOT Show is where the industry unveils the latest and greatest, but there may not be a SHOT Show 2021. Here are more details.

“The MacroStream USB is small enough for everyday carry, yet packs a punch with its lumen output and convenient USB charging,” said Streamlight Vice President of Sales and Marketing Michael F. Dineen. “It’s the ideal pocket or cap light, whether for patrol duty or tactical maneuvers, outdoor uses, or automotive, industrial and DIY jobs.”

Measuring 4.5 inches, the new light includes an 800 mAh lithium ion battery that fully recharges in 4 hours via a USB port housed under a sliding metal sleeve. Red and Green LEDs indicate charging status.

On the high setting, the new light also delivers 2,000 candela over a 90-meter beam distance. On low, the Streamlight MacroStream USB offers 50 lumens, 220 candela, and a beam distance of 30 meters. The run time on low is 8 hours.

The new light offers extremely durable, abrasion-resistant construction, featuring a machined aluminum case with a Type II Military Spec anodized finish. The MacroStream USB is IPX4-rated for water resistance operation, and is impact resistance-tested to one meter.

The MacroStream USB has an MSRP of $90 and comes with Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.
