Thread: Pelican 7060 vs Streamlight Stinger LED?

    Default Pelican 7060 vs Streamlight Stinger LED?

    The police department I work for is testing these lights. Which do you think would make a better belt light for a patrolman? Pros and cons of each?

    I think SL missed the boat with the Stinger-LED. It's a BIG light (larger than a regular and XT Stinger), I think too big for belt carry.

    Output is average 3watt LED.

    The 7060 has better output, and is smaller. The big current drawback is the lack of data on Cree longevity and the lack of currently available carry options.

    I have tried the Streamlight LED, it isn't bright enough in comparison to the newer Cree LED's. I find the Surefire 6P with a Cree LED dropin quite bright in comparison. I think the Pelican 7060 might be better, but I haven't seen one or used one.

    I have to go with the Pelican 7060 since the Stinger LED seems to be streamlights some what poor attempt at catching up with other companies who were making higher output rechargeable lights. At the same size or slightly smaller you can get a Surefire L7 which puts out a lot more light that the Stinger LED. How ever, the stinger LED does have adjustable output values (high, medium, low ,strobe) but that is just an extra feature and in the long run it might be more advantageous to have a variable output but, for the time being , the Pelican is the better choice

    I take back my initial post. My 7060 arrived, and it's as big as the Stinger LED....Maybe a little bigger in the head, and heavier...

    Ugh....

    dano,
    Is the 7060's beam bright enough that you would consider it as a replacement to the Stinger LED? Or will the Stinger's smoother beam help it get more use on a daily/weekly basis?

    I also have the Stinger LED and after giving the 7060 a charge until the indicator turned green, I compared the beam of both and the 7060 is brighter than the Stinger LED. I'll still keep the Stinger as a backup.

    The 7060 is a lot brighter than the S-LED.

    Neither one, IMO, is good for belt carry. Too big...

    A smaller Strion LED version with a Q5 cree would be appealing. I'm still suprised that SL went a tad bigger with the stinger LED. Seems alot of fellow LEOs' are switching to the Strion because of the smaller size.

    I have 2 stinger LEDs which I have modded with an SSC and a KLC8 for improved brightness. A plus is that the stinger LEDs can charge in the same charger as the old incan stinger and most accessories work with the exception of holders/sheaths. Haven't had a chance to check out a Pelican 7060 tho.

    What next? Perhaps a Cree LED light that will fit in the Streamlight Strion charger?

    (Just kidding!)

    I don't know if they've got any new offerings and how they are, but all of the previous luxeon based SL lights are stinkers!

    I disagree. The Propolymer 4AA and 3C are still quite decent lights.

    You guys got me. I wasn't thinking of those. I was thinking of the Xenon lights that were also made in LED, like the Stinger and the TL-3. (especially, the TL-3)

    I would have been soooo happy to see a cree/rebel Tl-3. The 5 watt badly tinted and driven led SL choose to put in it was (is) a real waste of potential.

    It's a shame that streamlight's tactical line of flashlights still use the old Luxeon I and Luxeon V emitters, and only recently have they "stepped up" to the Luxeon III with the Stinger LED, the Task Light 2L, and some weapon mounted lights.

    They really aught to get around to swapping out those old emitter’s with something new, like the Seoul P4.

    Anyone have ant photo's of the 7060 and the Stinger side by side ?

    I have a 7060 on order. It sounds like a nice bright LED light.

    I was under the impression it had a strobe function but based on the various reports here it has never been mentioned so I'm guessing no strobe.

    I ended up getting the Stinger LED.

    Some of the reasons I chose it over the Pelican:

    No uniform shops here had the Pelican.

    I already had some Stinger fast chargers that I can use with this light.

    I think your reasons for buying the Stinger LED are good ones. The Pelican is brighter, but as the new SF e2l shows, brightness is not always everything.

    I'm mandated to carry a full size light, metal or polymer. A small back light up is optional. The SL Stinger LED & 7060 is not considered "full size" by my dept.'s regs. I've been loyal to Streamlights for many years but i must say they have been very slow catching up with the LED advancements. Pelican though seems to be a trendsetter. My primary duty lights (meaning full size) include both Pelican & Streamlight.

    I have both Streamlight SL20X and the Pelican 7060. They both have their place. The modded SL20X is bright and very useful. The Pelican 7060 is smaller, has the tactical switch and I can carry it on my duty belt in a Bianchi Accumold open top baton pouch.

    I know you have already picked up the SL but you can always return it, sell it, or use it as a back up or house light.

    The Pelican 7060 is like nite and day compared to the SL.
    You have to use one to see what everyone is talking about.
    It's much brighter, built like a tank and looks cool too.

    Three ways to turn it on is a great feature. There are many holsters that are now out for it in cordura, Plain leather, and basketweave. As this light takes off you will see many more options become available.

    The SL is a good light too but the Pelican is a great light.
