    This is probably the brightest small flashlight I've ever used and it's tuff as nails too. Well worth the money. Sure beats the issued Mini-Mag my department gave me.

    I've had my Stremlight for 3 years and not once has it died on me, It's easy to charge up and is extremely user friendly and very compact in my opinion when you work in a correctional/detention facility, It's also easy to maintain it and clean it if it gets messy on ya

    I keep this light on my belt and use it often. I do wish the battery lasted a little longer though.

    Bright flashlight which can be convientently recharged in your vehicle. Always carry a spare though.

    I am carring this on my belt now. I love its weight and illumination , However the draw backs are the end cap becomes loose and it takes a long time to recharge,.. Other than this its great.

    Our agency issued this model to us after transitioning from the old rechargeable MagLites...have to admit, with the charging unit just in front of the driver seat on a side mount/floorboard, it has always been readily available for jump-outs and has only died once from prolonged use. I have a Surefire Tactical light on a belt holster for back-up in case the PS fails; so far, only had to use my SF on those occasions when I forgot to grab the PS before exiting (always in the daytime when we ended up having to clear a building/residence, or when I didn't want to walk back to the cruiser during a vehicle search.) Having one readily available on the belt is great, but tends to become a bit expensive with the lithium battery replacements.

    Overall, the PS is a very dependable light - can say this after having dropped it many times, even knocked from the hand by Mother Nature while chasing through some heavy underbrush - and it always functioned perfectly afterwards. A great investment for LEOs whose departments don't provide full equipment inventories.

    Agency issued this one to me and it was nice but don't like the polymer style...can only be used as an improvised weapon one time before it's history...

    I have utilized this light for over a year. It takes a beating and continues to shine bright.

    Great flashlight ! lightweight, easy to handle. Bright when it has a good charge. I average about 3 years on a battery.

    I've had this same flashlight for over 10 years now and never had any problems with it. Change the battery and light bulb every few years and it works like new. Only wish is to have on/off switch on end cap. Guess I'll have to get one of those when this finally bites the dust in another 10 years.

    This is a lightweight, but bright light. I have owned it for years and have only had to replace the battery pack once. Great for when you want something less bulky. I've used it for night tracking and it works well.

    I have carried the Stinger since 1997. Would not go on shift without it. Always dependable.

    This flashlight has been through 6 years of service, three hurricanes and a 50 mph car crash and still works great. It was also submerged in salt water during a rescue and never malfunctioned.

    I've had a PolyStinger since 2001. It was great for the first few years. Now it drains a fully charged battery in five hours. I now have to replace the battery during my shift. It's not fun searching a abandoned house for and offender and the light slowly goes dim.

    I have two of these, only because I lost the first one and found it after purchasing the replacement, of course! Very durable, only downside is having to recharge instead of replacing the batteries can cause a problem once in a blue moon. Now with two I don't have that problem..............

    junk flashlight. Already had to replace my issued flashlight twice in my first year on duty, including my time in the academy. Not bright and the bezel melts when the flashlight is accidentally triggered on when you're sitting down. Thankfully I have SureFire flashlights as "backup" (primary) and whip out the streamlight for Sunday inspection only

    Look up Eagle Tac flashlights.

    The Eagle Tac P-10 C2 flashlight is my duty choice and I love it. 56$ and 295 lumens. It's outstanding, and you'll never use anything else.

    Great flashlight. Just don't leave it in you cupholder where the summer sun can shine on the lens. It'll nearly burn a hole in it.

    Absolute crap, the housing cracked from a 3 foot fall to the ground. I can drop my Glock from much further without so much as a chip. However, I have 5 of the alluminum stingers for duty and personal use and would not trade them for anything.

    Great flashlight. I have put mine through falls, through fights, through torrential downpours, and constant beatings. This light makes it through it all. The brightness is commenable considering its size. Although not the best in wide open areas, the light works great inside or out where there are more things for the light to "bump into" such as buildings or walls.
    The recharging ability is something I love in a flashlight. I own SureFires and although they are powerful and great quality lights most are not rechargable and after you have dried up all you BATT power, you have to buy those very expensive batteries for the SureFire again and again. I just don't have that kind of money to waste. To be able to charge my light is so much better.

    Great light for a good price.
