EAGLEVILLE, Pa. - Streamlight® announced it has introduced the Stinger® LED HP and Stinger DS® LED HP rechargeable flashlights, providing industrial professionals extraordinary brightness and versatility with C4® LED technology, three intensity levels and a popular strobe feature.

"Streamlight's new Stinger LED HP and Stinger DS LED HP advance these two popular lights to among the brightest lights Streamlight offers, making them ideal for installation and repair technicians, utility workers, plant engineers and other industrial professionals who need extremely bright light under darkened conditions, such as working in a dimly lit basement, making emergency repairs at night, or lighting up areas of a shop floor," said Streamlight Chief Operating Officer Ray Sharrah. "The combination of rechargeable batteries, C4 technology, and Streamlight engineering provides over 200% more intensity than the Stinger LED and Stinger DS LED, and also results in extremely low operating costs."

Both lights offer 48,000 candela peak beam intensity and 200 lumens of measured system output in the high level; 24,000 candela peak beam intensity and 100 lumens in the medium setting; and 11,000 candela peak beam intensity and 50 lumens in the low setting. The light's deep-dish parabolic reflector produces a long-range targeting beam with optimum peripheral illumination to aid in navigation.

The new models also offer long runtimes. At the high level, the lights operate for two continuous hours to the 10% output level, 3.75 continuous hours at medium brightness, and 7.25 hours at low brightness. The strobe runs up to 5.50 continuous hours.

The lights are constructed of machined 6000-series aircraft aluminum and feature a non-slip rubberized comfort grip. The Stinger LED HP, which measures 9.23 inches in length and weighs 13.6 ounces, offers a multi-function, head-mounted pushbutton switch. The Stinger DS LED HP, which measures 9.65 inches in length and weighs 14 ounces, features innovative Dual-Switch™ technology, providing a second multi-function, pushbutton tactical tail switch for full-feature control, independent of the other switch.

Both lights are powered by 3-cell, 3.6 volt nickel-cadmium sub-C batteries, which are rechargeable up to 1,000 times. The Stinger LED HP and Stinger DS LED HP both fit existing Stinger chargers. The steady charger fully recharges in 10 hours on 100V, 120V, 230V, 240VAC, or 12VDC. Also available is a 2 ½-hour fast charger or PiggyBack® charger.

Both the Stinger LED HP and Stinger DS LED HP are backed by Streamlight's limited lifetime warranty. The suggested retail price for the Stinger LED HP is $209.00; the Stinger DS LED HP suggested retail price is $224.00.
