Wednesday, 13 November, 2019

In 1993 Streamlight® Inc. unleashed the iconic Stinger the first category defining compact rechargeable flashlight. Its combination of size, performance and durability has made it the first choice of law enforcement professionals all over the world. The Streamlight Stinger® Series has continued to go from strength to strength and these high performance lighting devices offer a range of high quality products built with precision and performance, especially for law enforcement and military.

Streamlight has earned its reputation one customer at a time and believes in a hands on, real world experience for all its customers, this approach leads to new ideas, innovations and 'Brilliant Thinking'. The Streamlight® Stinger LED HL is compact and extremely powerful.

These rechargeable flashlights offer three microprocessor controlled intensity modes, strobe and are the latest in high power LED technology.

The Stinger LED HL has more lumens for brightness and a wider beam that lights up a whole area from side to side making it possible to see dangers hiding in the darkest corners, tunnels or alleyways. The Stinger LED HL has an unbreakable polycarbonate lens with scratch resistant coating and is O-ring sealed.

The Stinger Switchblade 

The Stinger Switchblade features an articulating blade that includes cool white LEDs for bright area illumination; High Colour Rendering Index (CRI) LEDs with the Streamlight proprietary Colour-Rite technology to better see the colour spectrum; and a UV LED for leak detection. The light can stand on its tail end with the light bar angled in any position. The Stinger Switchblade has a weighted base that includes magnets for attaching the flashlight to metal surfaces for task-specific lighting. Two handy hooks, including an integrated retractable one, allow for different hanging options.

"The Stinger Switchblade is a multitasker's dream work light," said Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael F. Dineen. “It’s five lights in one, including a drop light, hands-free light, bright whitelight, UV light and a colour matching light. You’ll use this light for everything.” 

The Stinger Switchblade uses cool white LEDs to deliver 800 lumens of bright white light; 90 CRI colour matching LEDs that offer 600 lumens; and a 390-400 nanometer UV LED that provides 500 mW.

The new light uses a lithium ion 4400 mAh cell battery that can be recharged via a USB port or with any existing Stinger charger. Run times are 3.75 hours on both the cool white and 90 CRI LED settings, and 15 hours on the UV LED setting.

The Stinger Switchblade offers a head-mounted push-button switch for easy access and a rocky stipple texture for a sure grip. Manufactured of impact-modified nylon, it also features a replaceable hard-coated polycarbonate lens.

Weighing 17.1 ounces, the light measures 17 inches with light bar fully extended.
