Great upgrade to the regular Stinger

Let's face it, The future lies in LED lights now, rather than on incandescent xenon lights. The Streamlight Stinger DS with C4 LED would be the perfect candidate to replace your old Stinger.
-This is a LED LIGHT so it uses less energy, generates less heat, and thus lasts a longer time than incandescent models.
-The LED module is a C4 LED, so it is much brighter than regular LEDs and it has a better "throw" than incandescent lights.
-It has two switches, one below the reflector head, and the other one on the tailcap. This allows you to use it in "patrol mode" or in "tactical mode."
-It is made to the same standards as the old Stingers, so you get that "solid" metal feel, except that this light comes with rubber in the middle for enhanced grip.
-Anti-roll ring included
-Has several output modes, thus allowing you to bargain between brightness and time the battery lasts. The flashlight also has a Strobe mode, which can be used to disorient a subject if the light is ever needed for self defense.
-This light says it is rated at 80 lumens, but with the new C4 technology, the lumen rating has escalated to about 140. This makes it slightly brighter than the Pelican 7060, and both lights have a far-reaching throw. You'll be happy with either this light or the Pelican 7060, but I'd recommend this light to those who prefer a metallic body (since 7060 is made of hard polymer plastic), and the Stinger LED DS is a few bucks less expensive, and has more accessories available to you.
Not that many cons. The only bad thing is that they could have used a better reflector to get a "perfect" circle in the central beam. If you've ever had a Pelican 7060, you will know what I mean by "perfect circle." However, if you've never had a Pelican 7060, you will not even notice this tiny flaw.
Overall it's a great light to use on duty, or to carry in the car, or for personal use. It's a very good investment, because you will never need to buy batteries for it.

For a few years, I liked cheap lights that were somewhat bright but had cheap materials and faulty switches. I had a Maglite 2D-cell - the alkaline batteries leaked and actually sealed shut!
This Streamlight Stinger LED DS is an investment. It is longer and thicker than the original Stinger, as I found out when my friend offered his old belt holder. It is not compatible with old holders and I am still looking for one. The Dual Switches work independently and both are well built.
There are 3 modes of brightness: Really Bright > Crazy Bright > THE SUN!. There is also a strobing effect to disorient someone or signal for help.
It is meant to stay on a charger any time it's not being used. I am impressed with the quality of a single LED and the reflector inside. This is quality workmanship which I hope will last.

This is one the better lights they have produced...I have a 23 year old SL-20x which still works, but not as bright as this LED light...I have one of the first stingers with the standard bulb, and this light puts it to shame...Much brighter and has strobe...I can even use the chargers from my other lights! Only thing is that the standard case for the original stinger will not fit this one...
