Streamlight®, known the world over for pioneering big ideas in rechargeable flashlights, proudly presents one of our smallest ideas ever: Strion™, the world’s brightest, ultra-compact rechargeable flashlight. Strion’s exclusive Lithium Ion battery technology packs 12,000 candlepower into a bulletproof 5.3-inch package. That’s almost as powerful as the #1 rechargeable light for law enforcement, the Stinger®, in a body only two-thirds the size and less than half the weight. This system uses separate "Momentary" and "constant-on" switching so it is ideal for patrol or tactical use. The smart charger base stops charging when the advanced Lithium Ion battery is completely charged.

    This is the perfect light to carry on your duty belt. Mine replaced my SureFire G2, it is equivalent in brightness to the SureFire, with no need to worry about costly battery replacement. It's super bright, yet small enough to be carried on your duty belt without being bulky.

    Very good light. Small enough to carry day or night and has a high light output with focusable beam. I use mine daily and nightly.

    A good back up light. I wouldn't use it for your full time light, but is great for vehicle searches.

    Great backup light. You wouldn’t believe the amount of light this thing gives off. This light has save me on many stops when I’ve forgotten the larger Maglite.

    I replaced the polystinger with this light. The size is great especially when working in plain clothes. It also holds a charge very well. The smart charger is another great feature of this product.

    This is a good light for a back up. It is too small to put under your arm to write with a coat on. The back switch is okay but I would prefer a side push button on/off switch. To turn it on and keep it on you have to turn the end, the back switch only turns it on when you are holding it in. This is great for tactical use but for normal patrol and complaints it is sometimes irritating. It is very bright and holds a charge well. To have on your belt as a back up or tactical use it is a great item.

    This thing is junk! It took about a month until the battery went dead with very minimal use. No problem right? Just put it on the charger and your back in business. Well that's what I thought. The darn thing will not charge. After about 5 seconds on the charger, the indicator light clinks off and on and as soon as you turn the light on it goes dead. Don't waste your money on this product!

    This is a great back up light. I purchased mine when it first went on the market. I have had to replace the switch twice...good thing it didn't cost me much (just the shipping) due to the lifetime warranty that Streamlight offers.

    This is a great light. I carry it as a back up never know when you might need one. I have had my light for about two years now and only sent it in once for the tail switch to be replaced. Great thing is it only cost me shipping to fix.

    I purchased this light with the fast charger when it first came out. I am still using the original battery. The battery has good "on time", and stays charged for long periods of time. The light is light weight, small, and bright for its size. Now if Streamlight could make a similar model in LED...
    I wish that color rendition was as good as the better LED lights, otherwise great light!

    I just recently purchased this light as a backup to my Stinger XT. I have since added this to my duty belt. I purchased the version with the attachment for the rail system and this is a great feature. I also like the new feature on the charger that shows when the light is fully charged.

    Love this Flashlight. Great Battery, fast charging, and bright light output. Only drawback I have found is when working at night, it is a little too small and therefore awkward to try to hold under your arm if you are looking at documents/writing citations, etc. On the flip side, it's compact size adds little weight to your belt and leaves a small footprint in terms of real estate use on your duty belt. A great light.

    I've been carrying this light for about 3 years now. I like the compact size, as it easily fits on a duty belt. When fully charged it is bright enough for normal uses. Good light for getting into tight places and vehicle searches. Downside is definatly the charging. It does not seem to hold a charge long and I find myself having to charge everday. But, after 3 years i've gotten my money's worth out of it.

    This is a great duty light. It's compact and light, yet very durable. It came with the charger for the car and the house and I have used both with no problem. It is suprisingly bright for such a small light and the charge lasts quite a while. It's small enought that I usually carry it in my back pocket.

    Great light to have on your belt. Has come in handy on dayshift when you have to enter a dark building in a hurry and are away from your patrol unit. Also is nice that it is rechargeable so you do not have to keep batts around.

    I'm a corrections officer, bought this light for 2 reasons, recharge and the strobe. After telling I/m's to get up for count in a locked down cell 3 times, about a 2-3 second strobe changes their mind. I just bought mine, but its the C4 led with 160 lumens and anti-roll head. DO NOT stare into the bulb when its on!

    I bought mine when I was doing plain clothes narcotics it worked great I still carry it as a back up to my stinger but I still catch myself going for my strion first because its so much brighter. 5 years later and though its a little beat up its still going strong I haven't even had to replace the battery.

    I love this light. When the Chief gave me one a few years ago, I took my ASP off my duty belt to make room for it. Ive never regreted the decision. Its always with me if I need it. Day or night its right there. The only dfrawback I have is the switch, Its twist-on switch works OK but doesnt activate the light as good as the push-button does. Any way, I would never give this light up. Its always there and ready when I need it and thats what matters most.

    I have used this light for about 5 years and I have nothing but good experiences with it. I have worked undercover narcotics and regular patrol and the light has never failed to produce a bright, consistent light. Allow the charge to expire completely before charging 4 best results. I switch off between two Strions. Two is one, One is None.

    While the flashlight is nice when it is working and sports many great features, the reliability is not good. Mine stopped working after 3 months. I thought that the rechargable battery was at fault. I RMA'd it to Streamlight and got i back quickly with a replair. -BUT- there was also a note that it would be repaired "this time" for free but not in the future because it was caused by water getting into the device. It was never submerged in water and only exposed to limited rain. A flashlight like this should have some degree of waterproofing (O-rings, etc.) that protects from this. They have lost my business forever. I should have remained with Surefire but wanted a flashlight with the strobe feature and recharger. The Surefire L5 I have is great but has neither. If you do get the Strion I would recommend the Blackhawk Flashlight Holder w/Mod-U-Lok Attachment which is great on a duty belt.
