Streamlight® Inc., announced that it has significantly upgraded the light output of the LED models of its Stinger® and Strion® flashlights. The new Stinger models now feature up to 350 lumens, while the new Strion models now offer up to 250 lumens.
The enhanced rechargeable lights include the “traditional” Stinger and Strion LED products: the Stinger® LED; the Stinger DS® LED; and the Strion® LED. The “High Performance” (HP) models of these lights also have been upgraded, including the Stinger® LED HP; the Stinger DS® LED HP; and the Strion® LED HP.
All of the new models continue to offer three microprocessor-controlled variable intensity modes and a strobe function. The Stinger LED HP, the Stinger DS LED HP, the Stinger LED and the Stinger DS LED now offer 350 lumens on high, 175 lumens on medium and 85 lumens on the low setting. The upgraded Stinger products also provide improved intensity and beam distance. On the high setting, they provide a range of 24,000 to 56,000 candela peak beam intensity and a range of 310 to 473 meters.
The Strion LED and the Strion LED HP now offer 250 lumens on high, 130 lumens on medium and 65 lumens on low.
The run times for all the products remain unchanged, ranging from two hours on high to 7 hours and 30 minutes on low, and a strobe runtime of 5.5 hours.
Each of the enhanced products features a C4® LED impervious to shock with a 50,000 hour lifetime, and are constructed from 6000 series machined aircraft aluminum with an anodized finish. The DS models include a second, multi-function, push-button tactical tail switch for full-feature control, independent of the other switch.
All the lights are powered by 3-cell, 3.6 volt nickel-cadmium sub-C batteries, which are rechargeable up to 1,000 times. The enhanced products fit existing Stinger and Strion chargers, and are IPX4 rated for water-resistant operation. The Stinger LED and Stinger DS LED are impact resistance-tested to one meter; the Strion LED and Strion LED HP are impact resistance-tested to two meters; and the Stinger LED HP and Stinger DS LED HP are impact resistance-tested to three meters.
Available in black, the new products have MSRPs ranging from $186.00 to $231.00. Each includes Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.
These lights are unsurpassed in both quality and reliability. We highly recommend them.
