Armament Systems and Procedures (ASP), one of the most respected names in law enforcement products, has officially introduced the Triad USB, the LE market’'s first Micro USB rechargeable tactical LED light.
Powered by a 18650-lithium ion battery, the Triad USB’s revolutionary technology produces a brilliant 300 lumens of light with a continuous runtime of 2 hours. The Triad USB design incorporates all the key features of ASP’s Triad Series’ lights, including the 3-position intermittent, locking and constant-on switch, which provides police officers with unparallelled performance in any situation. Impact Resistant 2M drop test and Water Resistant to the FL-1 standard.
ASP Chairman and CEO Kevin Parsons, Ph.D., says the rechargeable Triad USB allows users to fully re-charge their duty light with the Micro USB, the power connector that cell phone manufacturers have agreed to implement as a standard universal phone charger in 2012.
This light is versatile and can also run on CR123A batteries or if you re-charge the batteries outside the flashlight you can also run it with any 18650 size (but it will not recharge in the flashlight with the USB cord).
“The Triad USB technology will eliminate the need in many cases for an additional power cord,” Parsons said. “Our goal with the Triad USB is to deliver unprecedented convenience in a duty light without compromising dependability.”
Measuring 5.5 inches long and weighing 5.4 ounces with batteries, the Triad USB is designed as an easy-to-carry duty light. Powered by a 18650-lithium ion battery, it produces 300 lumens of light with a continuous runtime of 120 minutes. It also lasts for 300 to 500 charges, depending on how deeply it's charged, and comes with a lifetime guarantee for any defect in material or workmanship.
In addition to a Micro USB retractable cord, the Triad USB comes with a detachable and reversible pocket clip, a zippered travel case, an A/C wall charger and a D/C car charger.
One feature that is not new but the company is known for serves multiple purposes in this light. "The Triad light has a foamed vinyl grip, the same grip we developed long ago for the ASP baton," Parsons says. "It's extremely durable and provides a tacky feel, but at the same time provides a cushion and insulation from the heat this type of light gives off, which is important."
In addition to all this, the Triad USB shares the same key features as ASP's other Triad series lights, including its three-position switch. Rotating the actuator to the left provides intermittent light. Positioning the actuator to the right provides constant illumination. The center position locks the switch to prevent accidental activation.
