    Default Streamlight Bi-pin 3 volt bulbs?

    Are there any discontinued Streamlight bi-pin (T1.5 base) bulbs that will run on 3 volts? Thanks!

    Streamlight used to make a light called PocketMate that used minimag style bulbs. The Streamlight Jr may have used bulbs with more spread like those from the Strion but I've never owned one of those.
    Oh yeah, that's right the Strion was 3 volts. I think there was a 2x aa twin task at one point as well.
    Battery Junction has 3.6 volt twin task bulbs in stock.

    Streamlight makes 2D twin task with single Xenon nominal 3 volt and 10 LEDs.

    They also have
    1xCR123A version with Xenon nominal 3 volt and 3 LEDs.

    They have 3AA and 3C versions too but nominal voltage is 4.5 volt.

    What light are you wanting to use them in Novice?
    Brinkmann and Maglite also made some bulbs and one called Lamptronix made some pretty durable ones for F-14 fighter dashboards. That one is a 3 volt bulb I use in a Brinkmann 3x aaa minimag clone.
    Here's a thread about those.

    bykfixer, I was looking for a 3v bulb that I could use in a Strion bulb adapter in an A2. It's kind of a long story, but I'm trying to put together a different configuration for that light, and, after emailing with Tad of Tad Customs, it would appear that his upcoming 3v bulb will not be coming to fruition.

    I was afraid Tad had not gone forward with it.

    A Strion bulb should do the trick.

    Strion adapter in an A2 sounds pretty cool.

    Normally, 3 volt bulb referes to a bulb working straight with two nominally, 1.5 volt alkalines.
    An A2 regulates any battery voltage from 4 to 8 volt to fixed 4 volts. Strion 3.7V bulb is slightly overdriven in A2 and works fine with bright and white output.
    If your plan is to use in different flashlight with different batteries, then better to find correct way to power up the bulb.
