Thread: Stanley H.I.D. and 1365 lumen spotlights (Part 2)

    I purchased this light off walmart.com and it is the second generation with no hi/low switch on the back. Because the larger size and weight it is kind of awkward hauling it places and shining it around. Besides the size and weight issue I am currently getting around 25 minutes of battery life on a single charge which I have read is great for this amount of flashlight power. When I start it with a full charge I only get the green light for a second then it turns orange then red (seems to be common). I am still running cycles through it to see if the battery life and green light issue improves. Other than that I think it is a great flashlight with high lumen output and high through compared to my other lights. By using this light a few times all my other lights don't seem bright anymore even though they are all above 100 lumens.

    I have a question for Plasmaman, I saw that you were able to use the Lithium batteries to power the Stanley HID I am new to the candlepower game and don't think I am up to making my own battery pack. Is there somewhere to get it premade and then I can splice it into the existing circuitry via your diagram in post #478? My SLA is dead and I love the light but the run time and crummy battery have killed it. Also have you ever posted the run times with the new battery pack?

    well, there are compatible LiPo packs however you will not be able to use the stock charger with them.

    Thanks Fritz. I understand about the charging which is fine and according to Plasmaman I should be able to charge it through the DC port in the bottom using his mod. What kind of battery pack would I look for specifically? I looked at some of the links earlier in the thread and got a little starry eyed when I saw all of the different types and configurations.

    Can't believe there is not a flood of Stanley owners flocking to this thread offering a mod to keep the Stanley in 60 Watt start-up mode indefinitely.

    Will this mod work on the HID0109 model?

    Did you make the mod for the HID3000 only?

    Will it work on both as the model I have is the one with no "LO" switch.

    I don't know what circuit differences there are between the two models.

Anybody else having problems? Just an FYI, the company that Stanley licences their name to "make" these is Baccus Global in Florida.
    A year later and they still are doing this. I picked one up yesterday and it wont come on and does this. That is part of this story, I killed an N30 this week too, one that I modded some time ago. Here:

    The one I got, the first ones with the hi-lo switch still works great and it was a Walmart close-out at $10. Gotta love it!

    I have a Stanley HID 0109 and its a great light.

    I think I need a new battery for it and I didn't see anywhere in this thread that mentioned where to get a replacement battery. (if I missed it I'm sorry.)

    I wouldn't mind putting in a different type of battery if the mod was not to pricey or extensive.

    Any and all info would be great.

    Thank you.

    Try interstate batteries, remove the old one to get the numbers off it and measure it to double check the replacement fits, this was where I got mine a year or so ago, good luck..

    Before I order it.... Is this the same light we are all discussing? Or have they downgraded the light sense this thread began?

    http://www.amazon.com/Stanley-HID010...glink121864-20

    Thank you. I'm hoping to order as soon as i get a response. By the way, the Amazon reviews for this thing are HORRIBLE. Half of them don't work, the other half break after one use, etc, etc, etc. What am I missing?

    Looks about right. However mine says HID Spotlight under the Stanley brand.

    There are some discrepancies, not a poly-carb lens, it's tempered glass.
    The pic they provide is not the same light in the description, the pic is the led version.
    It does not say anything about a dimmer so it will be the later model.
