Share this content


Streamlight has launched the Vulcan Clutch, a rechargeable lantern with a swivel neck and a 340-degree rotating head, providing up to 1,700 lumens of light. This multi-function lantern comes with a versatile clamping handle, allowing first responders to attach it to various surfaces and offer light in multiple directions.

Featuring a swivel neck and rotating head with hinges at the top, the Vulcan Clutch provides multi-directional lighting. It also offers a 20-degree downcast beam for footpath lighting and a flash mode that marks entrances and exits. The lantern has a rubberised, cushion-grip clamping handle that allows it to be attached to various surfaces, including ladders, doors, windows, motor vehicles, and other structures.

The Vulcan Clutch features three high-power white LEDs and three deep-dish parabolic reflectors, providing a tight spot beam with peripheral illumination. In addition, two ultra-bright blue LEDs illuminate the lantern’s taillights. The lantern delivers 1,700 lumens and 67,500 candelas over 520 metres on high, while on low, it offers 380 lumens and 15,000 candelas over a 245-metre beam distance. The run time on high is 6.5 hours, 18 hours on low, and 25 hours in signalling flash mode.

The Vulcan Clutch is powered by a rechargeable 7.4V 5.2Ahr lithium-ion battery that fully charges in 5 hours. It includes a quick install charge rack with a similar footprint as other lanterns in the Litebox®, Vulcan® and Vulcan® 180 series.

The lantern is designed with a high-impact, super tough nylon housing, and a rotating head constructed from high-grade aluminium encased in super tough nylon. It features an unbreakable polycarbonate lens with a scratch-resistant coating and a sealed gasket. It measures 23.85cm long, 11.68cm wide and 16.26cm high, and weighs only 1288g with the included battery.

The Vulcan Clutch is IPX7-rated for waterproof operation up to one metre for 30 minutes and has passed impact-resistant testing to two metres.

Michael F. Dineen, Streamlight’s Chief Revenue Officer, said: “With its high-power LEDs, the Vulcan Clutch provides firefighters and first responders with the bright light they require in emergencies, plus it converts from a handheld lantern to a multi-function light that clamps virtually anywhere to accommodate situations where both hands are needed.

“This two-in-one light with its clamp-on functionality is designed to assist firefighters in a variety of emergency situations, but it also serves as a work light in industrial environments and a portable scene light for roadside assistance. It clamps onto guardrails, buckets, the back of trucks and even serves as a roadside warning beacon with its flash mode functionality.”
