“The Bandit Pro’s long run time and USB port for charging on the go are perfect for not only industrial and automotive technicians, but also for first responders as well as DIY and outdoor users,” said Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael F.

The light even blinks to alert users when there are five minutes or less of run time.”

The Bandit Pro uses a 950 mAh Lithium Polymer battery, sealed within the unit for service-free operation. It is rechargeable via a micro USB charging port. Red and green LED lights indicate battery charging status; charge time is approximately 3.5 hours depending on the USB charging source.
Featuring a Polycarbonate body and lens, the rechargeable headlamp weighs 1.6 ounces with the attached headband (1.7 ounces with the hat clip adaptor) and measures 2.7″ in length. The light is IPX4 rated for weather resistance and is impact resistance-tested to two meters.
The light includes a handy snap-in hat clip adaptor to attach it to the brim of a baseball cap, or to adjust it further downward when using the headband. It is available in Safety Yellow and Black.
