EAGLEVILLE, Pa. - Streamlight®, a leading provider of high-performance lighting tools for law enforcement professionals, has introduced the PolyStinger® LED and PolyStinger DS™ LED rechargeable, polymer flashlights that provide exceptional brightness and durability with power C4™ LED technology. The PolyStinger DS LED also adds a tailcap switch.

Streamlight's C4 power LED technology provides two to three times the output of previous LEDs, up to a 50,000-hour lifetime and is impervious to shock.

The compact PolyStinger LED and PolyStinger DS LED lights offer three controlled variable intensity modes and a strobe mode. The high mode provides 24,000 candela peak beam intensity and 185 lumens of measured system output. The medium mode provides 12,000 candela peak beam intensity and 95 lumens, while the low mode generates 6,000 candela peak beam intensity and 50 lumens of measured system output. In addition, the lights' deep-dish parabolic reflectors produce a long-range targeting beam with optimum peripheral illumination to aid in navigation.

"Streamlight's PolyStinger LED and PolyStinger DS LED are compact, with virtually indestructible, light-weight polymer casings and extraordinary light output that outshines many incandescent lights," said Streamlight Chief Operating Officer Ray Sharrah. "The combination of rechargeable batteries and the next-generation C4 LED technology also results in one of the lowest operating costs of any flashlight made today. And with their three levels of light intensity plus strobe feature, first responders can use them for a wide variety of policing duties, such as night patrols, crowd control and traffic stops."

Sharrah added the PolyStinger DS (Dual Switch) LED also offers the flexibility of dual switch technology with both a multi-function, head-mounted push-button switch and a second multi-function tactical tail-cap switch that operate independently, each one enabling police officers to adjust the light easily to match their circumstances.

Both the PolyStinger LED and PolyStinger DS LED are constructed of super-tough, non-conductive nylon polymer, with a non-slip rubberized comfort grip. The lights' lenses are made of unbreakable polycarbonate with a scratch-resistant coating. Both lights are powered by Nickel-cadmium sub C batteries, which are rechargeable up to 1,000 times. A steady charger fully charges in 10 hours, while a fast charger or PiggyBack® models fully charge in 2½ hours. Both lights work with existing Stinger chargers.

The PolyStinger LED model weighs 11.5 ounces, measures 8.07 inches in length, and is available in black or yellow. The PolyStinger DS LED weighs 11.9 ounces, measures 8.64 inches, and is available in black only. Both are backed by Streamlight's Limited Lifetime warranty. The suggested retail price for the PolyStinger LED is $194.00 and the Stinger DS LED suggested retail price is $209.00.
