Streamlight® Launches Vantage® 180 X USB, Multi-Function light uses SL-B26 USB battery that reinvents rechargeability

Streamlight®, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting for firefighting uses, launched the Vantage® 180 X USB rechargeable system

The light, which can be mounted to full-brim fire helmets, and also used as a handheld or right-angle light, comes with a Streamlight SL-B26 USB rechargeable lithium ion battery with an integrated micro USB port and a charge cord. A Vantage® 180 X model with two CR123A batteries is also available.


The multi-function light Streamlight® securely attaches to helmets by means of an integrated stainless steel clip, designed for a variety of attachment methods and mounting positions

The “quick release” helmet bracket allows for easy detachment of the light from helmets, so that it can be used as a handheld or pocket light, or hooked to turnout gear.

Featuring a main beam that delivers up to 250 lumens, the light’s 180-degree rotating head automatically changes an ultra-bright blue safety taillight to a white safety flood down light when the head is set at a 90-degree angle.

“The Vantage 180 X USB gives firefighters and other first responders a truly compact and versatile tool for operating in smoke-filled or extremely low light conditions, with flexible battery options for every situation,” said Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael F. Dineen.

“Users can charge the light’s SL-B26 lithium ion battery from any USB source, transforming it into a rechargeable system.

Or they can use disposable cell batteries when a power source is not immediately available.”

Using either battery source, the Vantage 180 X USB provides 250 lumens, 7,200 candela peak beam intensity, and a 170-meter beam distance on the high setting.

Run times range from 4-15 hours, depending on battery source and light mode.

The light features a custom optic to provide a narrow beam with optimum peripheral illumination to aid in navigation.

It is operated by using a body-mounted, push-button switch that allows for one-handed constant “on” operation.

Measuring 5.2 ounces high, the Vantage 180 X USB weighs 5.5 ounces using CR123A batteries and 5.9 ounces with a Streamlight SL-B26 USB rechargeable battery.

It features a body constructed of high-impact, super-tough nylon, chemically resistant engineered polymer for exceptional durability and a sure grip.

Featuring an IPX7 rated design for waterproof operation to one meter for 30 minutes, the light is also one-meter impact resistance-tested.
