    Default Streamlight Stinger 2020

    Streamlight has released a new Stinger upgrade, more lumens, better ergonomics, a little bit shorter and a little bit lighter compared to the Stinger DS LED.

    My opinion:

    It looks nice, but they have now gone the down the route of trying to compete in the lumen wars, I'm guessing because they are seeing Olight eat some of their market.

    Looking at the runtime chart, it shows the high of 2000 lumens drops down to half within mins, so if you are using the light on high for short bursts you'll only get less than 1 hour, which sucks.
    Personally I liked the older regulated chart for longer runtime on high, so your light doesn't die right at the start of a 10 hour shift.

    I think this light will be popular with those that want all the lumens, but I think a better choice for most officers would be the ASP XT DF. Better quality, longer runtimes, better UI, great belt case, 18650, CR123 backup.
