Nightstick Announces IS-Certified 900-Lumen Dual-Light™ Rechargeable Lantern
XPR-5586GX combines powerful floodlight with a 90-degree pivoting head for flexible scene lighting solutions
Wylie, Texas – August 2019 - Nightstick, a global manufacturer of innovative, professional portable lighting products raises the bar of performance and flexibility yet again with their newest Class I, Div 1 Intrinsically Safe handheld hazardous environment lantern.
The XPR-5586GX Intrinsically Safe Rechargeable Dual-Light Lantern with Pivoting Head is Nightstick’s most flexible lantern to date. Combining a spotlight that pivots 90 degrees with a downward-facing floodlight, this lantern offers three user-selectable brightness settings of 650, 380 and a 25-lumen “Survival Mode” on both the spotlight and floodlight. Powered by a single rechargeable lithium-ion battery, the lantern’s operational runtimes are 9.5, 15.5 and 150 hours (nearly a week in Survival Mode!) respectively.
The pivoting head allows the user to prop the lantern on its back for easy hands-free use or as a convenient area light. With a 388-meter beam distance, the tightly focused flashlight beam is perfect for lighting up objects at great distances or large areas.
Featuring ergonomic independent switches, the lantern can also be used in Dual-Light mode (900 lumens), allowing the user to simultaneously see objects at a distance and see the ground in front of them as they walk or work.
Constructed of thick-walled glass-filled nylon and weighing only 2 lbs. 13oz., the 5586 is built to deliver reliable, certified lighting in the most demanding hazardous environments. The wide, curved handle is over-molded in rubber to provide a comfortable, positive grip. Two bright red rear-facing LEDs provide passive team member location for increased safety and awareness.
“Working closely with the hard-working men and women who can’t sacrifice performance for the sake of safety, we designed this lantern that fills the need for reliable, tough and long-lasting certified lighting without interruption or failure,“ says Russell Hoppe, Marketing Director for Nightstick. “We know our customers need to focus on completing their job with confidence, knowing their equipment was designed with the highest levels of safety when life depends on light.”
The 5586 is cULus-certified Class I DIV 1 and meets the requirements of NFPA-1971-8.6 (2013). The lantern comes with a wall-mountable charger base, AC and DC chargers and carry strap.
