“Versatility, brightness and USB rechargeability make the Pocket Mate the perfect easy-to-carry light for any situation—hands-free, in your pocket or attached to your person,” said Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael F. Dineen. “The Pocket Mate produces incredible lumens and beam distance for a light this size.”
At its peak, the Streamlight Pocket Mate produces 325 lumens with a 76-meter throw. The rechargeable lithium-ion battery on board will power it for about 20 minutes at its highest output. There's also a low mode that produces 45 lumens with a 28-meter beam, and the continuous runtime on that mode is 1 hour. When used intermittently, both modes will provides several hours of use. Modes are selected through a multi-function push-button switch recessed into the light body to prevent accidental activation when carried in a pocket.
The Streamlight Pocket Mate is with a polycarbonate housing that's bolstered by a machined-aluminum frame. This incredibly small package measures 2" long and weighs only half an ounce. Rated IPX4 for weather-resistant operation, the Pocket Mate can withstand use on rainy days and has been rated for impact-resistance up to 1 meter. The aluminum housing features an anodized spring clip that makes the unit easy to attach to your existing keychain, and the clip can be used to mount the light to a hat brim or clothing for hands-free use.
Streamlight Pocket Mate models are available with silver, red, blue and pink anodized coatings. The suggested retail price on the light is $35. For more information, visit streamlight.com.
