Streamlight ProTac 1L-1AA

I recently shared with you how impressed I am with Streamlight’s ProTac Rail Mount 1 and its ability to be powered from a CR123A or AA battery. Streamlight has just announced that they will be bringing that same technology to their ProTac handheld lights in the new ProTac 1L-1AA.


The new light will feature anodized aluminum construction, a “unbreakable” two-way clip, anti-roll bezel, and Streamlights TEN-TAP programming to allow the user to choose between 3 different output sets including high/strobe/low, high only, and high/low. The light is also IPX7 waterproof (1 meter for 30 minutes).

The output is basically identical to the ProTac Rail Mount 1.


  • CR123A lithium battery output:
    • High for bright light: 350 lumens; 6,400 candela; 160m beam; runs 1.5 hours
    • Low for longer run time: 40 lumens; 720 candela; 53m beam; runs 14.hours
    • Strobe for signaling or disorienting: runs 3 hours
  • AA alkaline/lithium battery output:
    • High: 150 lumens; 2,750 candela; 105m beam; runs 1 hour 20 minutes (alkaline);  runs 4.25 hours (lithium)
    • Low: 40 lumens; 720 candela; 53m beam; runs 7.5 hours (alkaline);  runs 14 hours (lithium)
    • Strobe for signaling or disorienting: runs 3.5 hours (alkaline); runs 8 hours (lithium)

The new light will be on display at NRA 2016 so swing by booth #5391 to see it in person. You can also learn more by visiting Streamlight’s website.

    I can say from experience, the clip is far from “unbreakable.” They’re my only complaint about the Protac lights though.

      I’ve seen them broken too but, I have a light by another well known manufacturer that has been through 4 clips and now I am having a hard time getting a replacement. Unfortunately, clips are nearly a consumable for lights.

    How much do you think these might be?

      I am guessing it will be between $35 and $45 at retailers based on the price of other lights in the ProTac line… but that is just a guess.

    I’d like to see a momentary tailcap for the protac line. I don’t really like the clicky tailcaps that come with them, and have no need for all the modes. I want a simple tailcap. Hopefully this is like the other protac lights and you can unscrew the tailcap a 1/4 turn and pretty much get momentary capability.
